MAC Sparks of Romance Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "true red [with a Matte Frost finish]." It's a medium-dark, brightened red with subtle, cool undertones and barely-there gold shimmer. It had almost full color coverage, and the finish is was semi-matte. The consistency didn't tug at lips, but there was a slight texture that I could feel due to the shimmer content. It wore well for six and a half hours and was slightly drying.
