MAC You’re So Vain Love Me Lipstick is a rich, medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. The lipstick had a lightweight, lightly creamy texture that felt a bit denser/thicker than most shades in the range, though it was definitely not heavy! It had nearly opaque color payoff that adhered evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging. There was a bit of product that sank into my deeper lip lines, and I felt like the lipstick wasn’t as kind as some formulas to imperfections in lip texture. It stayed on well for five hours and was lightly hydrating over time.
MAC DGAF Love Me Lipstick is a medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that didn’t build up to full coverage. The texture was lightweight, thin, and had enough slip that it didn’t tug on my lips when it was applied in a fluid motion. There was some unevenness present, mostly along the inner portions of my lips, as the color didn’t adhere as well there. There was a smidgen of product that sank into my deeper lip lines as well. It lasted decently for just over four hours on me and felt lightly moisturizing while worn.
MAC Maison Rouge Love Me Lipstick is a deep, pinky-red with strong, cool undertones and a lightly glossy, cream finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in one stroke, though it had enough slip that it didn’t seem to build up to full coverage either. The consistency was lightweight, thin without feeling clingy, and comfortable to apply and to wear. I was impressed by how smooth the finish appeared on my lips. The color stayed on nicely for over six hours, left a fuchsia stain behind, and was lightly hydrating over time.
