MAC Dreaming Dahlia is a very warm-toned, medium coral with a luminous finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $20.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Dreaming Dahlia Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "sheer red-coral [with a Lustre finish]." It's a muted, medium orange-coral with a luminous shine. It had semi-sheer color coverage, which applied evenly and smoothly. The consistency was lightly creamy, while the color lasted three hours on me. Givenchy Brun Createur (103) (P, $36.00) is more matte, muted. Too Faced Coral Fire (P, $21.00) is darker, brighter, more matte. Givenchy Croisiere Coral (310) (LE, $36.00) is slightly lighter, more matte. See comparison swatches.
