MAC Valiant is a slightly warm-toned, dark black with a satin finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Valiant Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep, plummy black with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. There was fine pearl strewn throughout the lipstick, though it did not actually seem shimmery in person. The texture was lightly creamy with slight slip but not enough to feel slippery while worn. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on somewhat evenly with some color gathering in my lip lines. The lipstick stayed on well for five and a half hours and was neither drying nor moisturizing.
