MAC Perfect Score Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "deep red [with a Matte finish]." It's a medium-dark red with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. The pigmentation was fantastic and covered lips with opaque color in a single pass. It had a velvety consistency that applied easily and didn't tug on the lips. This shade was still fully intact after six hours of wear, but it started to feel drying after the fifth hour. Dior Splendor (950) (LE, $38.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar).
