Clouds in My Coffee

MAC Clouds in My Coffee Liptensity Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium beige with soft, warm undertones and a satin fiish. It had a denser, creamier consistency with less slip and shine compared to most of the Liptensity range. It had nearly full color payoff in a single layer, and the color did not appear streaky, though there was slight color that settled into my lip lines. The lipstick wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating.

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.

Well Bred Brown

MAC Well Bred Brown Liptensity Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium brown with warm, caramel undertones and a cream finish. It had excellent pigmentation that covered the lips with even, smooth color coverage in a single stroke. The lipstick felt lightly creamy with some slip but not enough for it to slide around too easily. It wore well for five and a half hours and felt a touch moisturizing.

Brick Dust

MAC Brick Dust Liptensity Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish brown with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had opaque color coverage that applied beautifully to the lips with smooth, even coverage. The consistency was firmer in the tube but quickly melted as I glided it across the lips. There was a slight tackiness present, which I expect helped it last a bit longer–six hours–while still having a comfortable feel on my lips.

I bought Well Bred Brown (as well as Toast and Butter) and is the perfect the warm nude brown for my skin tone. After your review now i have to check out Brick Dust!!!

Because of that old Carly Simon hit “You’re So Vain”, I have GOT to find a way to make Clouds In My Coffee work! But it’s so light, I know going in that it needs a lip pencil.

Brick Dust immediately grabbed my attention due to its rich, chocolatey infused warmth. Only catch? I have 1 and 2/3 of tubes of Royally Riotous. Although the 2/3 full one now smells like Play-Doh instead of vanilla.

Rick dust is so beautiful and I am not the type to like neutrals. It looks so creamy and smooth. It’s just so pretty. I may have to try this one out
