MAC Forbidden Romance is a moderately warm-toned, medium plum with a metallic finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Forbidden Romance Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark plum with warm, brown undertones and pink and gold pearl. It had medium, buildable color payoff that glided on easily and yielded even coverage. The lipstick was lightly emollient with some slip but did not feel thick or heavy, so it did not slide around once applied. It wore well for four and a half hours on me and was lightly hydrating.
