MAC So Good For You Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark red with strong, cool, pink undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, though it wasn't fully opaque; it had an even translucency to it so that it looked rich and bold, but a hint of the natural lip color still came through. The texture was firmer, a little velvety in the tube, but it took more pressure to apply and tugged on the lips as I worked it across my lips. It felt thinner, somewhat clingy, and overall, moderately drying over time, but it lasted for over six hours and left a strong stain behind. MAC Pomegranate (LE, $25.00) is lighter (95% similar).
