MAC Pressed and Ready is a moderately warm-toned, light peach with a pearl finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Pressed and Ready Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "soft whitened nude [with a Lustre finish]." It's a light peach that leans slightly warmer, more orange-based than perfectly balanced, and it had fine, gold pearl. The texture was lightly emollient, a little stiffer in the tube until it warmed up against the lips, and applied with semi-opaque coverage--which is actually more coverage than most Lustres offer. The texture seemed to highlight lip lines as some of the color sunk into mine. This shade lasted for two and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.
