MAC Powerhouse is a very cool-toned, very dark burgundy with a satin finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Powerhouse Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep, purpled burgundy with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque with a lightweight, velvety texture that applied easily across the lips and did not tug, but there was enough slip where I felt like it didn't adhere as well to my inner lip area. It wore well for over six hours, left a stain behind, and was slightly drying.
