MAC Punk Couture Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "deep blackened grape [with a Matte finish]." It's a medium-dark purple with warmer undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, though definitely opaque (and it wouldn't build-up to opaque coverage either) and could apply more evenly. The texture didn't drag or feel uncomfortable to apply nor to wear, as it had some slip (which might be why it applied unevenly). It wore for over six hours, was somewhat drying, and left behind a fuchsia stain. This is a repromote. MAC Leap of Delight (LE, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar).
