MAC Lingering Kiss is a slightly warm-toned, dark burgundy with a natural finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $20.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Lingering Kiss Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "deep plum red [with a Matte finish]." It's a deepened, reddish burgundy with warm undertones and a soft shine. It wasn't matte to me, and the consistency had more slip than the other matte shades in the collection. The slip made it harder to get really even color, so it looked slightly uneven in places. I had some very light feathering after the fifth hour of wear, though the color lasted well for six hours. It also left a stain behind and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Fixed on Drama (LE, $16.00) is lighter, more matte. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Anita (P, $18.00) is darker, browner. MAC Endless Drama (P, $18.00) is sheerer, lighter. MAC Dramatic Encounter (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Black Dahlia (P, $18.00) is cooler-toned, less brown. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
