Editor's Review

MAC Men Love Mystery Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "lavender violet [with a Matte finish]." It's a medium-dark, subdued purple with a hint of warmth and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a lightly creamy texture that applied evenly for the most part. On me, it lasted for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

What's so interesting is how this color reads so differently on each person and in each photo. What looks like a pinkish-lavender on both the MAC and Temptalia websites reads more of a blue-lavender on me. I was looking for a purple lipstick when I bought it, but the darker purples looked terrible on me. Men Love Mystery was perfect. It's very much a purple lipstick, but not dark enough to look ghoulish on me. It is a matte formula, and, therefore, is a bit drying, but not to the point of being uncomfortable. It lasts for many hours without a touch-up, and adds a really nice edginess to my makeup.
