MAC Mind Control Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "bright cherry red." It's a bright, medium red with subtle, cool undertones and barely-there pearl. It had mostly opaque coverage, but there was a translucency to the color that gave it a lighter-weight appearance on (a little more like a stain). The texture was lightweight, emollient without being slippery, and comfortable to wear. On me, it wore for five and a half hours and left a stain behind. It was very lightly hydrating.
