MAC Cordon Bleu is a slightly warm-toned, dark coral with a satin finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $20.00 and contains 0.24 oz.
MAC Cordon Bleu Matte Lip Mousse ($20.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. This one took a bit longer to "set" and wear down to a true, "soft matte" finish as marketed (or you could blot!).
The texture was lightweight, thin and a little watery, though it was still smooth and spreadable, like you'd expect a mousse to be like. It had semi-sheer to medium coverage in a single layer, which was buildable to mostly opaque coverage in two layers. The color went on fairly evenly but it sank into my lip lines and was visible to my eye in person. The formula felt comfortable to wear but after six hours of wear, my lips definitely didn't feel hydrated (or better for wearing this).
