MAC Under the Covers Love Me Lipstick is a medium-dark pink with moderate, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, but it had to be built up to get to full coverage. The texture was lightweight, emollient enough to glide on without tugging but not enough that it felt slippery when worn, so it adhered well and was comfortable to wear. There was a touch of product that sank into my deeper lip lines, which wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. It stayed on nicely for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating over time.
MAC As If I Care Love Me Lipstick is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a natural finish. It had good color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging, but it was shy of full coverage in one stroke. The lipstick had a lightweight, thinner texture that wasn’t clingy and had enough slip to be comfortable to apply and to wear. There was a smidgen of product that sank into my deeper lip lines, and I felt like the texture was less forgiving of lip texture/imperfections. It wore well for four hours and was lightly moisturizing while worn.
MAC Bated Breath Love Me Lipstick is a medium-dark plum with strong, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that adhered evenly to my lips without emphasizing lip texture. The consistency was lightweight, emollient enough to prevent tugging, and felt thin (but not clingy). It lasted well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating while worn.
