Today, I’m going to review the MAC Liptensity Lipstick in the shade Doe. I loved using the Smoked Almond and Ambrosial shades from the range. So, I went ahead and bought this one. Let’s get into the review.
Price: Rs. 1850/-
A brilliant formula that pushes the boundaries of colour. Each Lipstick holds intense amounts of pigment, resulting in extreme colour intensity, clarity and vibrancy. This luxurious gelled base melts on contact, providing fully saturated colour with a satin finish in one stroke.
My Experience with MAC Doe Liptensity Lipstick:
Thank you, MAC for giving us a packaging which won’t cause much confusion. For the first time, MAC has come up with a new packaging, unlike their traditional lipstick case. The Liptensity range has colour coordinating caps and a slanted bullet shape like their Huggable lipstick formula. Like any other MAC lipsticks, these have a lovely vanilla scent to it. The bottom tube is black in color with MAC logo printed on it and half the tube is the same as the color of the bullet inside. The name of the shade is printed at the bottom of the tube.
The idea behind the “Liptensity” formula is to offer comfort and hydration of a lip balm with the intensity of a lip colour. The liptensity has a super saturated colour payoff with a creamy texture. It offers opaque coverage in a single swipe.
When I first applied it to my lips, I fell in love with the formulation. It applies so smoothly and glides like butter on the lips. I did not notice any feathering around my lips. The shade range is huge; they offer 24 shades including neutral, reds, pinks, purples, blue and even a black. There is something for everyone.
The shade Doe is a Neutral beige-y shade which is perfect for everyday wear and would suit people with fair to medium skin tones. I pair this lip colour with a smoky eye look and a lip gloss and it looks perfect. When I applied it first, I noticed that it dries down to a semi-matte finish with a slight sheen. This formula makes your lips look plump and beautiful.
It does not cling onto any dry patches on the lips and feels very comfortable and hydrating too. The best part of the Liptensity is the wear time. Doe lasts for 5 hours on me after drinking and leaves behind a beautiful stain. The only drawback of this range is the shape of the bullet. Since it has no pointed tip, you need to sacrifice a bit of precision. Overall, I absolutely love this lipstick and I am totally planning on picking up more shades.
