MAC Mulling Spices Liptensity Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep, medium-dark red with strong, cool, pink undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation, but it covered incredibly evenly and smoothly, so I could barely tell (my lip freckle was the only indication it wasn't opaque). The consistency was soft, lightly balm-like as it melted against the lips, though it is noticeably firm initially. The formula sat well on my lips, didn't emphsaize lip lines, and made them appear fuller while lasting for a good six and a half hours. It left behind a stain and was neither drying nor hydrating over time. Guerlain Samsara (DC, $37.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Hourglass Icon (P, $32.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar).
