MAC Rave Chic is a moderately warm-toned, dark purple with a frost finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $20.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Rave Chic Lipstick ($18.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium purple with very strong, warm pink undertones and cooler violet pearl. It had semi-sheer, slightly buildable (to about medium) coverage that applied fairly evenly to my lips. Due to the translucency and the more contrasting shimmer, it worked particularly well as a layering shade--it still added a lot of oomph to my lips despite not being opaque. It was, thankfully, described as "sheer," so it was marketed accurately! The texture was thinner but had enough slip that it glided onto my lips without tugging and was fairly comfortable to wear. It stayed on well for four hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating.
