The texture has a softer, thicker feel that spreads well and feels more gliding like silicone (if you’ve tried silicone-based primers, the feel on the lips was similar but more creamy). The applicator worked well to apply and distribute the product evenly, but it collected so much product for my lips in one swipe of product that I felt over-applied at the expense of application.

I’ve had better luck applying the product to my upper lip (especially around my cupid’s bow, as the applicator worked best for getting this area) and then pressing my lips together and/or using a fingertip to spread the product on to the rest of my hair. lip. This ensures that there is not too much product on my lips; Too much product resulted in little to no uneven formation, especially along the inner area of ​​my menstruation, prone to staining teeth, and sometimes spotting lip texture/imperfections. For reference: All swatch images are applied using the included app tool only.

For a more spread look, you may want to apply it with fingertips or just the middle of the lips and then use a brush or fingertips to blast in the color. The colors lasted fairly evenly, and I found that most of the time it didn’t, it was an issue with overusing the product (despite just using one piece of product!) and the formula was more forgiving when applied with less product (but this was a no-no! It still goes a long way to cover my lips with almost full coverage!).

The first two hours of wearing. I recommend blotting gently on the back of your hand (less likely to get bits of tissue on your lips this way) to smooth them out and remove them faster, if desired.

The lighter shades didn’t fade evenly and had more noticeable wear along the middle of my lips, while the mid-tone and deeper shades lasted longer and are more balanced because they tend to stain a bit. The wear period ranged from five to eight hours, but the formula didn’t provide me with any “instant” hydration, and after wearing so many shades from back to back, my lips got a little dry.

Mac Token of Effect Liquid Lipstick, Powder Kiss ($25.00 for 0.17 oz) is a deep red with light, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to my lips and didn’t emphasize lip texture or settle into lip lines, although it was a bit “crumbly” in close-ups (but I didn’t feel it when I pressed lips together!).

The consistency was smooth, velvety, and spreadable without being too rainy. It lasted well for six hours, left behind a slight stain, and was not dry.
