MAC Digging for Gold Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium copper with strong, warm orange undertones and finer, deeper copper pearl. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied evenly. I appreciated how nicely the shimmer distributed, which I think might be one of the more important aspects of more metallic lipstick, as it yields a more continuous, reflective sheen. The texture was smooth, slightly creamy without being too slippery, and easy to apply and spread across the lips. The lipstick felt lightly hydrating over the four hours it lasted on me.
