This is a really nice creamy, somewhat shimmery nude shade. I wish it were more matte but it does a nice job moisturizing my lips. I have fairly pigmented lips and this does a really nice job muting them and goes great with smokey eyes. The price, $9, is really excellent for the amount of product and the quality. I got it as a substitute for a more pricey Shiseido nude lipstick and I am definitely happy. **edit: It's been one week since I got this product and this is actually my favorite lip color now! I wear it nearly every day, it matches everything and is subtle but enhancing to my lips. Going on my favorites list for sure!
