Some lipsticks with satin finish occasionally last with its breakdown of formula. Yet MAC Liptensity delivers full coverage and a lovely sheen. The gel base keeps the richness of the pigment, ensuring the color stays for long. What makes this lipstick memorable is its wonderful scent of freshly baked cookies. The subtle fragrance does not leave the lips irritated; only a slight gloss for a beautiful shine.
