MAC Ionized Iris is a moderately cool-toned, dark fuchsia with a sparkle finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $21.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Ionized Iris Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a mix of finer pink shimmer and larger fuchsia sparkle. The consistency was fairly smooth--though I could feel some of the shimmer/sparkle in it as I glided it across my lips--and had some slip but did not feel slippery on the lips. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly onto my lips and sat well on them without getting into my lip lines. The color lasted well for four hours on me and was lightly hydrating.
This shade, along with six other new shades, will launch on June 22nd online and in stores/at counters.
