My experience with MAC Cordovan Liptensity Lipstick


The packaging of this particular set of lipsticks is pleasantly different from the usual bullet lipsticks that MAC offers. It is more tubular, thinner and comes with coordinating caps. It makes it easier for people to identify the lipstick shade.


This lipstick has a sweet vanilla fragrance which is not too overpowering and people would love it.


After using the retro matte lipstick range which was quite drying, it was surprising to experience the smooth application of this product which comes under the satin range of MAC. This shade is a beautiful cool toned burgundy along with the darker tones of rose. It is a highly pigmented shade that glides on smoothly. One application is enough for it to last for up to 5 hours but I did notice that it fades a little once you consume oily food leaving behind a beautiful stain. The packaging makes it user-friendly, it is lightweight and one can easily carry it around.

I really liked the lipstick and it’s a good change from the usual mattes. The shade ‘Cordovan’ is so versatile that you can easily rock it on a daily basis or while going out to an event. This shade surely has the power to uplift your mood on a dull day.

What do I like?
  1. It is a gel formula, glides on smoothly
  2. Comfortable application
  3. Intensely pigmented
  4. Good pay off at the very first swipe
  5. Stays put for up to 5 hours
  6. Extremely Hydrating
  7. No dry patches after application
What Don’t I like?
  1. It feathers a little
  2. Doesn’t stay put for a longer duration of time ( the brand claims for it to last eight hours)
  3. Little expensive
  4. The application lacks precision because of the flat tip of the lipstick
Would I recommend or repurchase this product?

Yes, definitely! This lipstick is the most comfortable lipstick that I’ve ever tried of MAC. The color is beautiful and would suit all the Indian skin tones. It doesn’t wash you out and is very smooth to apply. If you don’t mind the price point, then go ahead and get yourself a Liptensity lipstick especially the shade ‘Cordovan’. I bet you would be the star of the gathering.

My Rating: 4.5/5
