MAC Rose Lily is a moderately cool-toned, light pink with a luminous finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
Rose Lily Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "sheer pastel pink [with a Lustre finish]." It's a light, cool-toned pink with blue undertones and a luminous shine. It had semi-sheer color coverage that wasn't quite even when applied. It was also a shade that was difficult to keep even-looking, as the minute your lips touched, you could see where they were! The color wore well for two and a half hours on me. NARS Stourhead (LE, $25.00) is lighter. MAC Raspberry Swirl (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned, slightly darker. NARS Roman Holiday (P, $26.00) is brighter, darker. MAC Dreaminess (P, $22.00) is not as blue-based. See comparison swatches.
