MAC Deep Rooted Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "brown taupe [with a Matte finish]." It's a medium-dark taupe with gray-leanings and a semi-matte finish. The consistency was creamy enough to apply easily and evenly, while it had mostly opaque color payoff. On me, it wore well for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.
