MAC Royal Hour is a moderately warm-toned, dark purple with a sparkle finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Royal Hour Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark purple with warmer, pink udnertones and cooler blue and violet pearl. It also had slightly larger violet sparkle, which gave the lipstick a more noticeable texture when applied directly from the tube (though it wasn't painful or uncomfortable to use). It had semi-opaque color coverage, which applied fairly evenly, but some of the larger particles bunched up and made areas look "chunky" to a small degree. It wore well for four and a half hours and was lightly moisturizing.
