MAC Marsala Liptensity Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish berry with subtle, cool undertones and satiny sheen. It was richly pigmented with full color coverage and a smooth, light-medium thick texture that sat exceptionally well on the lips. The more gel-like consistency made my lips look smoother and fuller. The color wore well for nearly eight hours before it would be time for a touch-up, while the formula was just a smidgen drying after six hours of wear.
