There was an offer going on MAC products, like buy two and get one free and I picked two beautiful MAC lipsticks. One is the most popular shade called MAC Mehr and another one from their Liptensity range. I also got the free shade called MAC Amplified Lipstick Chatterbox which I love a lot too. Now, coming to the MAC Liptensity Lipstick, I picked the shade Lobster. This range has 24 beautiful shades, which is a really huge range and as I love orange lipstick, I picked this beautiful shade. Now, read on to know more about it.
Price: Rs.1850 for 3.6gm
A Lipstick with enhanced amounts of pigment for extreme colour intensity.
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 Liptensity Lipstick Lobster:
Packaging: MAC Liptensity Lipstick range comes in a rather different packaging than their usual lipsticks and I am so happy that this range has a color-coded tube which makes it easy to identify the shade. It comes with an outer black box with details of the product. So, the shade Lobster comes in a nice orange colored base tube with an orange cap. This is a metal tube and the quality feels really good as well. It looks very classy with a matte finish. I love this small beautiful packaging which is totally easy to carry around and the cap close tightly, so it is also safe to carry.
Shade: The shade Lobster is one of the gorgeous orange shades I have. Like they describe it, it is actually a burnt orange color with a warm undertone. It looks bright and very summery as well. But, it is still a wearable orange for all skin tones. I am medium tanned and the shade looks stunning on my skin tone. It has a hint of coral with a mix of natural burnt tone in it, which makes it a perfect and unique orange color. The shade is super pigmented as well which requires only one-two swipes to get the perfect color pay off. It occupies my lips well and can hide pigmented lips perfectly.
Texture and Quality: MAC Liptensity Lipstick has a very nice smooth creamy texture that glides easily on the lips. It evenly occupies my lips and feels very comfortable. I really like this formula and it has a nice soft creamy finish that looks stunning on the lips. It is neither a super glossy creamy lipstick nor a full matte lipstick; it actually has a nice sheen of creamy finish that is good for all. After a couple of hours, it settles into a nice non-shiny velvety creamy texture. It doesn’t feel patchy or dry on the lips. But, I have to exfoliate my lips before applying it, otherwise, it slightly highlights my dry patches. But, the formula provides good hydration to lips which never makes them dry. It instantly provides a nice relief to dry lips and makes them soft and smooth. Softness stays long as well. This lipstick doesn’t have a huge noticeable smell but a nice mild fragrance that I can smell, maximum.
But, due to its creamy formula, it does transfer and the color looks slightly faded after having a few cups of coffee. Still, as it is a super pigmented lipstick, lots of color still remains on the lips. Also, the lipstick doesn’t settle into the fine lines or crease at all. It leaves a nice pretty orange stain on lips which lasts throughout the day. Hence, it is definitely a good quality lipstick. Only, due to its rounded bullet tip, the application is a little difficult for that perfect sharp cupid bow but I can manage with this.
Staying Power: Though it is a creamy lipstick, the color lasts really long for around 8 hours. It looks slightly faded after a heavy meal, but I do not mind it since reapplication does not make it patchy. It can survive normal lunch or snacks without any mess. I didn’t expect it to be a long-lasting lipstick but it works so amazingly on my lips and keeps them beautiful for long. Also, it is easy to remove with a wipe.
Overall: I love its formula, quality and I am so happy to have such a beautiful burnt orange shade that suits me perfectly. I love its smooth creamy finish that lasts long. It is definitely an expensive lipstick but totally a worth buy.
