MAC Hellebore Liptensity Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a dark purple with warm, pink undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It had good pigmentation but was not "one-stroke" coverage. After about half of a pass on the lips, the consistency started to melt and felt more gel-like as I applied it, but it tugged a bit initially. The color applied fairly evenly, but the application would benefit from a lip liner underneath for better, more even coverage overall. This shade lasted nicely for six and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Urban Decay Speedball (P, $18.00) is lighter (95% similar).
