MAC Bowl Me Over is a slightly warm-toned, medium-dark burgundy with a semi-matte finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Bowl Me Over Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "deep burnt brown [with a Retro Matte finish]." It's a muted, medium-dark burgundy with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage, though it was not fully opaque, that applied evenly. The consistency felt lightweight, velvety, and was thin overall. It's more like modern Retro Mattes and less like past Retro Mattes that would drag, tug, and pull painfully. On me, the color lasted for a solid six and a half hours and could easily be worn longer. It was lightly drying after four hours of wear. Shiseido Curious Cassis (RD620) (DC, $28.00) is brighter (90% similar). Maybelline Burgundy Blush (P, $7.99) is warmer (90% similar).
