MAC Saint Germain is a very cool-toned, light pink with a natural finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $21.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Saint Germain Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "clean pastel pink [with an Amplified finish]." It's a light-medium, cool-toned bubblegum pink with a soft shine. It had good color payoff, though not fully opaque, with a lightly creamy, emollient texture that applied without trouble. If I press my lips together, I can see "lines" appear to a small degree. This color wore well for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. This shade is part of the permanent range. MAC Hey, Kiss Me! (LE, $21.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar).
