MAC Nightly Ritual is a slightly cool-toned, dark black with a sparkle finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $20.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Nightly Ritual Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a purplish black with fine teal, silver, and green pearl. It had semi-sheer color coverage, so the end result darkened my natural lip color substantially but may look cooler or warmer depending on what your natural lip color looks like. The texture had moderate slip, which may have been why the lipstick did not apply as evenly as it could have. I struggled to get the product to adhere as well to the inner areas of my lips (more so than average). It wore well for four hours but had issues where the color pulled into lip lines over time. It was lightly hydrating, though! This is definitely one that would work better layered over something else.
