MAC Love & Cherished Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "creamy light purple [with a Cremesheen finish]." It is a soft, light lavender with cool undertones and a very fine pearl and light sheen. The texture had that slight firmer consistency of a Cremesheen until it warms up against the lips, then it gets softer and glides on easily. It looked more like a Lustre on, as it was semi-sheer, uneven, and tended to emphasize every flaw on my lips. This shade lasted for three hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.
