The MAC Liptensity lipstick in the shade Driftwood has become a firm favourite of mine recently. It's been hanging about in my collection since they were released way back last year, but I never really gave it a chance until now. I find that the shade is so unique to any of the other lipsticks that I own. Driftwood is a pale beige nude shade that has just the slightest hint of a pale purple undertone. This has joined my small collection of perfect nude shades.
The packaging of the Liptensity is super sleek and simple. The top cap is coloured to match the shade of a lipstick. I really like the packaging, more so than that of the regular MAC lipsticks. It's convenient to just look at the lipstick and immediately know what colour of lipstick I'm picking out. With regular MAC lipsticks, I have to just pick up different ones at random and check their bottom label before I find what I'm looking for.
The texture is very smooth and creamy on the lips. I love a good matte lipstick, but the satin finish is a nice mix up to my collection. It feels super moisturising and hydrating, but it does not seem to comprise the vibrancy or the longevity of the colour. I can typically get 4+ hours of wear before I even have to worry about any touch ups. If I don't eat anything. Otherwise, I find that it becomes a necessity to reapply after eating.
I really wish I had picked up more of the Lipstensity lipsticks when they were released. I can't remember if they were limited edition, or not. I might have to pop into my local MAC counter and see if there are any different colours still available.
Who else has tried the MAC Liptensity lipsticks? What other shades should I look into trying?
