MAC Elle Belle is a slightly cool-toned, very dark berry with a natural finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Elle Belle Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a dark, reddish plum with subtle, cool undertones and a creamy finish. It had good color coverage, though not quite opaque, that applied evenly across the lips. The lipstick felt creamy, emollient, and had some slip on the lips. I did not experience any feathering along the edges over the five and a half hours it lasted for. The formula was lightly hydrating over time.
