Well, I have to say that I do not own this lipstick. I went to the MAC counter because I was trying to find a pretty rosy color and based on MUA reviews and internet swatches I wanted to buy "Speed Dial". I tried it in the store (thank god I did!) and I didn't like how it looked on my lips. It is a sort of bubble gum pink, it has a whithish pigmentation that I dislike. It's the kind of color that doesn't look natural on me and wash me out. It is not the kind of color that light up your face or at least not mine (for reference I have fair skin with black hair and brown eyes). Instead of these, I ended up buying "Lustering" and I am very happy with it. The big lesson here is: ALWAYS try the lipsticks on your lips, what looks good on your friend might not look good on you or what you see in the tube might look a lot different when you apply it.
love love love this lipstick! just the right amount of pink to add the perfect color to complete your look and it lasts all day on my lips no need to reapply later in the day and the color works with any kind of look your going for
This is the first high-end lipstick I've ever purchased and I did it on a whim. I've never thought I could wear lipstick - something my mother told me long ago that I've since realized was wrong. This shade is so... girly. It's very pink, bright but not overwhelming, and feminine. I have light to light-medium skin, dark blonde hair and blue eyes and this shade is very flattering while not being overly drying. I definitely recommend it to someone who is looking for a girly shade that isn't extremely bold!
I love this colour! It's a lovely wearable pink. Not too heavy but u can build it to a more vibrant shade. Can easily wear this during the day with minimal eye makeup. But will also look great with a cat eye :-) its a lippy that perks up a gloomy day
This is a perfect nude-ish pink for an every day, casual look. I'm a pink lipstick addict and usually wear really bold pinks, but if I'm in the mood to not really stand out, I tend to grab this. It's not dull or nude, exactly, but on my pale skin it definitely doesn't really pop and is pretty sheen. It's lovely and moisturizing and the cremesheen formula doesn't dry out my lips.
Some people say this is a barbie pink...no, that is MAC's Pink Nouveau. And some people say this looks just like PN when put on...uh, no. They look absolutely nothing alike. This is way less bright and subtle than Pink Nouveau, so you can definitely buy both.
Not the most unique color in the world, but a very pretty, practical, every day, girl-next-door color!
NW20, almost blck hair, brown eyes, pushing 40. It just looks like a brighter pink lipstick. With my dark features, this would look better if I was more tan. It just kind of sits there & doesn't broghten up my face. I prefer Revlon Temptress to this.
Itís a blue-based candy-bubblegum pink lipstick with a golden sheen and a cremesheen finish. Iíll be totally honest and say that it doesnít wow me at all, I just look at it and think Ďblahí. The pigmentation is decent Ė not as good as the Amplified Creme or Matte finishes, and I find it makes my lips look very wet. I need quite a few swipes of it on my lips to get full-coverage, and itís not a unique shade, in fact it has many similarities with my other pinks - itís so incredibly alike to Chatterbox and Please Me, and in real-life it looks very much like Pink Nouveau. Definitely not a special or Ďmust-haveí lipstick as MAC offer better ones with longer lasting power and itís just far too alike to my other lipsticks. I will say that it is very wearable, and you could definitely wear this during the day. So yes, I do regret purchasing it and will probably give it to my mother.
I bought this product after seeing it a few times and being drawn to it. When i got it home and opened it, i thought it looked very familiar and realised that it is almost identical to Venus which was LE as part of the Heavenly Creatures collection. The only difference is the finish and the fact that Venus has more of a gold sheen to it. That aside, it's a very wearable lipstick. I wear most of my lipstick with a gloss on top. I think this shade would be suitable for both cool-skin and warm-skin and it's versatile.
Glad I bought this color after swapping it with Ravishing which looked pale on my skin tone.Its a lively pink not muted with subtle gold shimmers but its a safe pink not extremely blue toned.Its slightly cool toned and summery colour with great pigmentation.Do not find it barbiesh and girly and can be tones down with a warm brown lipliner like dervish and whirl.All in all a safe pink lippi than Girl About Town.The MUA was really helpful in making me decide as to swap ravishing lipstick with this color and am satisfied by my purchase.Worth trying, every woman owns a pink so this and lovelorn are a must!!
I think the color looks cheap. I am sorry to offend everybody else whom likes this color. The texture is full coverage and thick. Recommend using a lipbrush for application. Looks like some cheap $3 drugstore magenta pink.
