MAC Smoked Almond Liptensity Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark pinky-brown with warm undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It was nicely pigmented with full-color coverage that went on smoothly and evenly. The texture felt a little firm in the tube, but it started to melt as I applied it to my lips. The consistency was a little thicker but did not feel heavy, and it did not well up in lip lines as it seemed to self-level after five minutes of wear. This shade wore well for six and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. elf Drive (P, $9.00) is lighter (95% similar). ColourPop Lay Over (P, $10.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).
