MAC Art Directed is a slightly warm-toned, medium copper with a frost finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $20.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
Art Directed is described as a "glossy sheer champagne [with a Glaze finish]." It's a shimmering, medium beige with warm undertones and multi-colored shimmer. The finish looked more metallic on the lips, and it had sheer, shimmering color payoff. It lasted an hour and a half on me when I wore it. It was somewhat drying. MAC Smash Hit is more glittery and warmer. MAC Pleasureseeker is warmer and more coral/orange when applied but applied it is a less shimmery version. See comparison swatches.
