Great pinky plum mauve, comes out looking super dark in the tube almost terracotta or burgundy but goes on gorgeous plum mauve. Subtle color, not bright at all. Wears for a couple hrs, however when I eat it becomes a tad lighter. Love to mix this over Long Distance and get a pinker color~
What she said. The previous reviewer gives a great description of this excellent lippie. I was tired of long-wearing lipsticks lasting until I took my first sip and ending up on the rim. This MAC lipstick does what it says - it lasts for six hours through eating, drinking, kissing, etc., and the color is not overwhelming (which is tricky since this lipstick isn't subtle at all in terms of consistency; it's very creamy and opaque). Leave it to MAC to be long lasting when they say long lasting.
MAC describes this lipstick as a "dirty neutral pink with pearl" but I find this lipstick to be quite different from the description. In the tube and on my lips it appears as a medium berry pink with a matte finish and the slight shimmer is only evident in bright direct sunlight. The formula is creamy, coverage is opaque, and wear time for me is around 7 to 8 hours. Can be slightly drying on the lips and cling to dry patches, but maintaining adequate lip care with exfoliation and moisturizing definitely helps avoid this. Overall I really enjoy this lip shade as it's neutral and a few shades darker then my own lip colour making it versatile and easy to wear with an array of makeup looks.
