MAC Instant Icon is a slightly cool-toned, light blue with a satin finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MACInstant Icon Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, sky blue with cool undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied unevenly and looked patchy, a bit streaky, and settled into lip lines immediately after applying it. Even though the consistency seemed creamy enough to apply comfortably, it just looked underwhelming on. The only way to salvage this one would be to use a lip liner or lip primer underneath it. The color wore for just over three and a half hours on me and was non-drying in feel.
