MAC Crossfade is a moderately warm-toned, light orange with a satin finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $24.00 and contains 0.17 oz.
MAC Crossfade Powder Kiss Liquid Lipcolour ($24.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a brighter, medium coral-orange with strong, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that did not build up well, as it already had a tendency to pill, cling to texture, settle into lip lines, and have streakiness along the edge with just that level of application.
The included-applicator yielded the worst application, as it seemed to over-apply the physical product, so the best way to get even coverage that didn't emphasize imperfections was to apply to the center of the lips and then use a fingertip to soften and diffuse the product outward. This shade lasted for five hours and felt slightly drying over time.
