MAC P for Potent & Werk Werk Werk Powder Kiss Lipsticks

MAC P for Potent Powder Kiss Lipstick is a deep berry with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which was slightly buildable but never reached full opacity for me. The texture was very lightweight, thinner, and more velvety–glide but not inherent wetness–that adhered fairly evenly but wasn’t the most forgiving/flattering of textures to wear. It lasted for four and a half hours and felt non-drying.

MAC Werk Werk Werk Powder Kiss Lipstick is a muted, darker red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in one layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging. The consistency was very lightweight–almost weightless–and felt thin but didn’t look or feel clingy. It was one of the better-applying Powder Kiss lipsticks for me (as I find many emphasize my natural lip texture or lip lines). It wore nicely for five hours, left a faint stain behind, and felt neither drying nor hydrating over time.
