MAC Phenomenal Woman is a very warm-toned, very dark purple with a satin finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $20.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Phenomenal Woman Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep, purpled burgundy with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied decently, but it could have gone on more evenly. The lipstick had a thin, moderately emollient feel, which likely contributed to some of the patchiness of the application as well as having color sink into my lip lines. This shade wore well for five and a half hours, left a slight stain behind, and was non-drying.
