This is my every day go to wear with anything lipstick color. Matches MAC's lipliner in Beurre perfectly. Cremesheen is my favorite MAC formula, makes my lips stay moisturized so I reach for it often not only for the color but for the way it feels and wears. This shade is a neutral brownish pink that flatters my NC30-NC35 skin tone. One of those MAC staple products that I will continue to repurchase.
okay look. sadly I don't own a lot of MAC lipsticks like you gals do, but I think it's alright, because I'm pretty sure I've found Mr. Lipstick Right! (sorry for the random name, too excited)
- rosy brown color, which means it's brown without being too brown. The hint of pink is noticeable, trust me.
- it's THE my-lips-but-much-much-better shade. If that's what you've been painfully searching for, end the search! I promised myself I would definitely get this if I could get my hands on them in the MAC store (lovely colors are ALWAYS out of stock...). And I got it today. Didnt even bother to keep the receipt because I'm SURE I'm keeping it.
- the formula. Cremesheen. It's rather similar to Amplified, creamy so it's a lifesaver for dry lips (me!). Matte lipsticks arent my friends.and the color payoff is decent, yes it fades but it does so in a lovely manner (sorry for being slightly vague, try it out and see for yourself!!)
Cons: sorry, no! will update if I spot any in future.
I'm not a beauty expert and I only have a very limited amount of makeup, but I am confident that I will repurchase this again and again till it becomes my natural lip colour lol.
I had originally bought this as an everyday go-with-everything color and lost the tube about half-way through. I held off re-buying it for a while because I was considering trying another shade for that purpose, or maybe at very least find dupe for it. Nope. It took a few months but I finally caved and got another. I don't regret it at all. I use this quite often, its a unique blend of brown, pinkish-mauve, and soft red-based burgundy. It can be played up as more of a stand-out lip, especially with a deeper liner, or it can be patted on as a stain with smoky, darkened eyes. I especially recommend this for those with pigmented lips looking for an easy-going yet polished look, and for those who struggle with paler, more traditional "nude" shades (I can easily wear colors like Dark Side, Rebel, or even Cyber but Myth? Fugeddaboutit.) In terms of undertone its not particularly warm or cool, but if you prefer pronounced blue or yellowed tones this might go a bit muddy. To me, its more of a "Deep" color, and like Karen of the Make-Up and Beauty blog says, this would be a great shade to use as a gateway into darker colors if you're curious about them but want to test the waters first. Being a Cremesheen finish, its a bit like the hybrid of a Luster and an Amplified, so you get a lot of pay off, while still keeping a little bit of glossy lightness. I'll repurchase again and again, HG.
IN LOVE, i'm on my second tube ! perfect for any occassion. I use it without a lip liner and it gives the perfect cream finish that is STILL moisturizing. This is perfect on my brown (olive-undertone) skin.
I'm on my second tube of this. It's the perfect berry/wine without being too red or too vampy. Looks amazing on my NC15, dark hair, blue eyes...
I was wearing this when DF proposed lol...
A beautiful, creamy, subtle pinkish-brown colour that looks natural and polished on my Indian skin. I like that the formula is not drying. It looks nice with the nice n spicy prolongwear lipliner.
Wow... this colour is gorgeous. It matches my own lip colour perfectly and is just ever so slightly darker, livening up my face. It's a muted mauve pink, leaning towards plummy. Very pretty and work appropriate... love it! Easily the best match for my face I have ever found.
The consistency takes some getting used to, it's a bit sticky but also sort of dry. Not the most comfortable feel, however it makes my lips look so good (as long as they're in good condition) that I'm willing to put up with it... If you want a similar colour with a more comforable consistency, Clinique's 'Beauty' (longlast lipstick) is nice. But for some reason Creme in your Coffee makes my lips look bigger, so I've found my new favourite!
I really like this shade. It was a toss up between this & twig (very close in color) but i liked the finish on this one better. On me it shows up a rosey brown (fyi i have almost no pigment to my lips), very classy & work app. Will repurchase. continued >>
Just came home with my 3rd purchase of this color. Lol! Love this as my work color and also have been using the matching creme in your coffee lipliner. It's as light as I like to go on my lips. On my olive skin it pulls a really pretty brownish-pink, and I will sometimes brighten it up with a bit of frosty drugstore brand on top just in the middle of the lower lip.
this goes on a truly great neutral colour - on me its a sort of pinky plummy brown MLBB - but i find the sheen wears off too quickly, leaving a deep plum brown stain that's less natural looking and very drying ... carrying lip balm is a must :D i'd love to find this colour in another brand ... perhaps one that doesn't use tampon-shaped tubes ;-)
