MAC Designer Blue Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark navy blue with cool undertones and a frosted finish. It appeared lighter and warmer swatched, but it seemed to darken slightly after it was applied. It had semi-opaque color coverage that did not apply evenly; it was patchy and streaky, so this is a shade that needs a lip primer or lip liner underneath it to have a decent result. The color lasted for four and a half hours, was neither drying nor hydrating, and left a purplish stain behind. Fenty Beauty Igloo Bloo (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Anastasia Paint (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Too Faced Blue You Away (P, $20.00) is warmer, glossier (85% similar).
