MAC Cordovan Liptensity Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a dark, reddish plum with subtle, cool undertones and a glossy finish. The consistency was more gel-like and had more slip on the lips, though it was thin and lightly tacky so I didn't feel like it slid around while worn. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, but the color distributed evenly and smoothly. This shade lasted for seven hours and left behind a strong stain. Bite Beauty Jam (DC, $26.00) is cooler (95% similar).
