Editor's Review

MAC Matte Royal Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep, bluish purple with cool undertones and a soft sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on fairly evenly, though there was a touch of color that settled into my deeper lip lines. The darker color made it harder to notice that, though. This shade has been released before, but the version I received for this launch was much more pigmented and had less slip on the lips. It still had a creamier texture that didn't tug on my lips when I applied it directly from the tube, but it didn't slide around or look as uneven applied. It wore well for six hours and left a stain behind, while the formula seemed non-drying.

Matte Royal is deep blue-violet. It goes on creamy and smooth, no tugging. It is matte, but not too dry. It feels typical of a MAC matte. Because it is such a deep, cool color, it is hard to see in warm evening lighting, and can look almost black. This makes it a poor choice to wear for a night out at a bar if you're hoping to show off the blue color. To get the full effect of this lipstick, wear it during the daytime or where it will be brightly lit.
