MAC Midnight Troll is a very cool-toned, medium-dark blue with a satin finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Midnight Troll Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "rich blue [with a Matte finish]." It's a bright, medium-dark navy blue with strong, cool undertones (almost looks violet in some lighting conditions) with a satin finish. It isn't matte to me, and it had enough slip in it that it doesn't apply as evenly as a true matte might have in this hue. The color lasted for five hours and left a strong stain behind. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating. Makeup Geek Wild Child (P, $12.00) is darker (95% similar). Sephora Violet Vertigo (103) (P, $14.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Anastasia Primary #5 (Vol. 1) (PiP, ) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Cobalt (P, $18.00) is darker, more muted, less glossy (90% similar). ColourPop Climax (P, $6.00) is darker, more muted, less glossy (80% similar). ColourPop Jellies (LE, $6.50) is warmer, less glossy (85% similar). NYX Sinful (P, $6.00) is warmer (80% similar). MAC Canal Blue (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). KVD Beauty Bruno (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
