MAC Under the Covers, As If I Care, Bated Breath Love Me Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

MAC Under the Covers Love Me Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) 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.

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 As If I Care Love Me Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) 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.
