MAC Leading Lady Red Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “deep red.” It’s a muted, medium-dark red with subtle, cooler pink undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had a velvety, smooth, light-medium thick texture that applied well without dragging or skipping. It had opaque color coverage that sat well on the lips.
