MAC Carmine Rouge is a very cool-toned, medium-dark red with a satin finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $20.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
Carmine Rouge is a medium red with cooler, pinky undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips. I found that it was tough to build up beyond semi-opaque coverage, though. The texture was lightweight, thin (and thinner than the tube-version I have), but it didn't feel clingy. It wore well for over six hours and was neither drying nor hydrating on me.
