Editor's Review

MAC Dionysus Liptensity Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark burgundy red with subtle, warm undertones and a glossy, creamy finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which had fairly even coverage, though the darker color paired with the more emollient texture seemed to highlight lip lines slightly as the color would settle and appear darker in mine. The texture was lightly balm-like as it melted against the lips and glided across with minimal tugging initially and then no tugging at all once it warmed up. This shade wore well for seven hours and was non-drying, which is close to as described for wear. Bite Beauty Liquorice (DC, $26.00) is less glossy (95% similar). NARS Ingrid (P, $34.00) is warmer (95% similar). Pat McGrath Anarkissed (P, $40.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). NARS Bette (P, $34.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Sephora Goddess (30) (P, $13.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Sephora Malt Shake (29) (P, $8.00) is warmer (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Your Majesty (P, $37.00) is lighter (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Mahogany (601) (P, $38.00) is darker (90% similar). Bite Beauty #001 (Reformulation) (LE, $36.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Lingering Kiss (LE, $20.00) is more muted, less glossy (90% similar). Colour Pop It's Faux (LE, $7.00) is less shimmery, cooler, less glossy (90% similar). Bite Beauty Black Cherry (LE, $24.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Besame Noir Red 1930 (PiP, $22.00) is darker, more muted, less glossy (85% similar). Sephora Me First (38) (P, $13.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Saboteur (Right) (LE, ) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Make Up For Ever Eggplant (501) (P, $24.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Shiseido Noble Plum (224) (P, $26.00) is darker, more muted, less glossy (80% similar). NARS Mona (P, $34.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Bobbi Brown Cool Beets (P, $27.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

I'm constantly on the fence about this colour. It is very dark and tends to wear away in the middle of my lips, which I don't like, but it's also very pigmented overall and feels nice on. I have Galaxy Grey as well, and that feels much better on, so this formula isn't 100% consistent, this one is from the drier end. I'm giving a few more chances before destashing though, because the colour is really good and it does apply better over time once the surface isn't as smooth anymore.
