MAC Consensual & Love U Back Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

MAC Consensual Lipstick ($18.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a dark, chocolaty brown with subtle, warm yellow undertones and a semi-matte finish. The texture was denser, a bit firmer in the tube, but it warmed up against my lips and applied with just a touch of tugging (nothing painful). It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which adhered evenly and stayed out of my lip lines. The lipstick stayed on well for five hours and was non-drying.

MAC Lipstick comes in a variety of finishes, and the pigmentation and wear tend to be dependent on the finish. The sheer finishes, like Lustres, tend to wear for only a couple of hours and have sheer coverage (as designed) and are non-drying. Some of the original Matte shades have a stiffer, drier formula, while newer ones have a more velvety, silicone-feel to them, and the latter are creamier, more comfortable to wear, and easier to apply, but most Matte shades are quite pigmented and long-wearing, though some are drying. The Amplified and Satin finishes tend to have good pigmentation, lightly creamy to moderately creamy consistencies with a bit of shine, and moderate to long wear with deeper, richer shades wearing longer. The Frost and Metallic finishes have the most variance between shades with coverage ranging from semi-sheer to opaque with average wear and non-drying to slightly drying formulas. All MAC lipsticks are vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.

MAC Love U Back Lipstick ($18.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a light-medium, muted pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin sheen. The lipstick had a slightly thicker, creamier texture that was comfortable to apply but prone to separating along my lip lines and pulling color into them. It had rich pigmentation that went on evenly that lasted for four and a half hours on me. The formula felt neither drying nor hydrating over time.
