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.

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
