MAC Live Long and Prosper is a moderately warm-toned, medium-dark gold with a metallic finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Live Long and Prosper Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as an "icy rosy champagne [with a Frost finish]." It's a muted, light-medium copper rose with warm undertones and multi-colored shimmer. It had semi-sheer color coverage, so this one is likely to look different from person to person, as I find it looks like a pinker color on my lips due to the way color layers over my natural lip color. As a result, I do think it's rather wearable on its own, but the sheerness would also make it work as a layering shade. I just wish it was described as a sheer product. The color wore well for three and a half hours and had a slight amount of settling into my lip lines. It was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Warm Ice (LE, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar).
