MAC Ice Orchid is a moderately warm-toned, medium-dark pink with a pearl finish. It is a limited edition lipgloss that retails for $21.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Ice Orchid Lipglass ($18.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a soft pink with warm undertones and fine pearl along with multi-colored micro-sparkle. It had a semi-sheer base with more semi-opaque "coverage" in the form of shimmer/sparkle. I found that it seemed to enhance the natural pink tones of my lip color, which helped keep the gloss looking even. The texture was smooth, moderately sticky, but I found it comfortable to wear, and it was flattering on as it smoothed out my lip lines. It stayed on nicely for four hours on me and was hydrating over time. I really wish MAC would indicate coverage levels on their Lipglasses, as the formula is listed as "high coverage," but they put out so many sheer to semi-sheer shades that it's hard to imagine that's not on purpose.
