Make Up For Ever 500 Lilac is a moderately warm-toned, light purple with a cream finish. It is a permanent lipgloss that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.23 oz.
Make Up For Ever 500 Lilac Artist Plexi-Gloss ($19.00 for 0.23 fl. oz.) is a brightened, medium pink-purple with a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which made it one of the more pigmented glosses I tried from the range, but it does have some issues with application. The color looks slightly uneven, and there is some settling into lip lines. The gloss lasted for the five hours as marketed, which was good. It wasn't drying, but it wasn't moisturizing either. Urban Decay Bittersweet (P, $22.00) is darker. NYX Berry Strudel (P, $6.00) is cooler-toned, darker. MAC Narcissus (LE, $20.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
