MAC Always and Forever is a slightly warm-toned, light-medium orange with a cream finish. It is a permanent lipgloss that retails for $24.00 and contains 0.28 oz.
MAC Always and Forever Versicolour Lip Stain ($24.00 for 0.28 fl. oz.) is described as a "pink salmon." It's a bright, light-medium tangerine orange with warm, yellow tones and a creamy finish from the tube, and it darkened into a medium, reddish-orange after five minutes on the lips. The texture was thin, lightweight, but some of the color settled into lip lines (particularly the bottom lip for me). The color lasted for six and a half hours and was somewhat drying towards the end of wear. Urban Decay Punch Drunk (DC, $26.00) is warmer (90% similar). Dior 999 (P, $35.00) is darker (90% similar).
