MAC Self Esteem is a slightly cool-toned, medium-dark red with a matte finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Self Esteem Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, while the texture was velvety, thin but not clingy, and fairly comfortable to wear given it was still going strong after seven hours of wear. Overall, the formula seemed just a touch drying after wearing it for most of the day.
