MAC Plum Princess is a very cool-toned, very dark lavender with a satin finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Plum Princess Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "pastel plummy lavender [with a Matte finish]." It's a muted, grayed lavender purple with neutral-to-cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had almost opaque color payoff when I tried it. The texture seemed smooth and glided on without dragging, but the finish was more unflattering on--a lot of the more recent mattes have had a more velvety consistency overall, but this emphasized the texture of my lips more. It lasted for four and a half hours but was somewhat drying with some color pulling noticeably into lip lines. NYX Playdate (P, $6.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar).
