MAC Anything Once is a slightly cool-toned, dark blue with a pearl finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $20.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Anything Once Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, blackened navy blue with fine blue and violet pearl. The texture was thinner but had a fair amount of slip, which led to a patchy, uneven application that made it hard to wear on its own. Like other shades in the range, this would be most suitable for layering over another shade rather than using it on its own. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was not buildable, and it lasted for three hours. The formula felt very slightly hydrating overall.
