MAC Sweet Venom Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as an "intense pink coral [with a Matte finish]." It's a medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish. It was richly pigmented and paired with a smooth, creamy consistency that was easy to apply directly from the tube. The consistency was on the thicker side, which seemed to give it more movement and slip. This shade wore well for four and a half hours with a bit of color getting into lip lines.
