Editor's Review

MAC Claretcast Liptensity Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pinky berry with subtle, cool undertones paired with a satin finish. It had full color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly, with just a bit of tugging initially but became easier to glide on as it melted against the lips. The texture was light-to-medium in weight, lightly tacky but comfortable to wear over a six and a half hour period. The formula was a smidgen drying after four hours of wear.

Estee Lauder Unattainable (P, $32.00) is more muted, warmer (90% similar). NARS Jolie Mome (P, $26.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Art Deco (502) (PiP, $38.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Grenadine (P, $29.00) is less shimmery, darker, less pigmented (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Rose de Russie (LE, $58.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). NARS Damage Control (P, $26.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar).

One of the most beautiful bright pink lipsticks I have ever used is seen around, it’s creamy, very pigmented, long-lasting and looks even more beautiful on than in pictures. It’s such a shame that MAC decided to discontinue the liptensity line, there is nothing like it around sadly
