MAC Gwendolyn is a slightly warm-toned, dark taupe with a satin finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Gwendolyn Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark, purple-leaning taupe with neutral-to-cool undertones and a satin finish. There were fine pearls strewn thorughout, but it did not read metallic or shimmery in person. The consistency had moderate slip, and unfortunately, the color went on unevenly and was prone to settling in my lip lines. It wore well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating.
