MAC Coffee and Cigs, Pure Nonchalance, Killing Me Softly Love Me Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

MAC Coffee and Cigs Love Me Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a soft, muted plum-brown with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer with a lightweight, thin consistency that didn’t feel clingy and still had enough slip to glide on without tugging. The texture was also quite flattering, which was impressive as a lot of thinner lipstick textures emphasize texture and lip lines. It wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.1 oz. – $190.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a “lighter-than-air texture” with “all-day moisturization” paired with “intense color and soft shine.” They had semi-opaque to fully opaque color coverage in a single layer, and most of the shades applied evenly and smoothly to my lips without emphasizing lip texture or sinking noticeably into my lip lines.

The texture was very lightweight, lightly creamy without too much slip, yet there was a distinctive shine to the finish. The luminosity wore down within an hour or so of wear. The formula seemed like a cross between Amplified and Cremesheens, yet there was no tackiness, and the Love Me formula was much lighter and thinner (without being clingy). The wear has ranged from three to six hours and has been lightly to moderately hydrating. They had a sweet, vanilla scent (typical of the brand) but no discernible taste.

MAC Pure Nonchalance Love Me Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a muted, pinky-lavender with warmer undertones and a cream finish. It had good color coverage in a single stroke, though it wasn’t opaque and didn’t quite build to there either. The consistency felt lightweight with light to moderate slip, so it didn’t tug during application but didn’t slide around during wear. There was some streakiness along the edge, and I did experience some product pulling into my deeper lip lines. It stayed on well for four hours and was lightly moisturizing over time.
