Bite o' Georgia

MAC Bite o’ Georgia Liptensity Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light, peachy coral with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that did not apply as evenly as most of the Liptensity range has in the past. This one seemed almost grainy as bits of color seemed to clump up on my lips. Even though it had a glossier, the color read chalky. The texture was smooth, firm in the bullet with slight tackiness. It wore well for four and a half hours and was non-drying.

Formula Overview

$21.00/0.12 oz. - $175.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “intense amounts of pigment” with a gel-like texture that melts on lips that leaves behind a satin finish and wears for “eight hours.” It’s supposed to be “comfortable” to wear, but there are no claims about hydration–and overall, they were non-drying.

The majority of the range varied from semi-opaque to fully opaque in one stroke, while the texture had some body and thickness to it but was not heavy. The consistency feels firmer in the tube, but it became softer and more pliable as it warmed up against the lips. This was also true about how the color settled and looked on the lips–it tended to fill up lip lines without emphasizing them as much after thirty seconds of wear. The formula didn”t have a lot of slip, and it was actually lightly tacky, which helped it stay in place better.

The wear ranged from four to eight hours with lighter shades typically wearing shorter than deeper and more intense shades. The finish was anywhere from satin to natural with noticeable sheen, sometimes glossiness, but it often wore to a satin to semi-matte finish after a few hours. The formula has MAC’s typical vanilla scent but had no discernible taste.

King Salmon

MAC King Salmon Liptensity Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium coral with warm undertones and a creamy finish. The consistency was smooth, firmer but not stiff, and easy to apply to the lips. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly to the lips, but I felt like this one had a bit more slip to it and was harder to get to adhere to the inner portion of my lips. The color stayed on well for six hours and was lightly hydrating.

Ginger Rose

MAC Ginger Rose Liptensity Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. The color payoff was good, though just shy of full coverage. It had a lightweight consistency with slight tackiness and a creamier feel, so it was comfortable to wear. This shade wore well for five and a half hours on me and was non-drying.

Not adhering to the middle of the lips talked me out of getting King Salmon. I have the dupe Revlon Snow Peach and it’s a favorite.
