A really nice nude lipstick, very 60's. I use this with Spice lipliner, gives a very sexy result. This is not a concealer nude, this is a wearable one.
I have caramel skin, my lips are more of a chocolate brown, this looked like I had mayo on my lips.
After literally years of disappointment with searching for a Nude lipstick I have finally found my HG . I bought this lipstock after reading the reviews on here and decided to go for it. I think the big difference w/this lip color is that unlike other nudes which most of the time has pinkish undertone this one has yellow undertone and since I have a yellow undertone it matches perfectly!
If you are a NC42 or somewhere around that ...than this will match perfectly. (I also recommend hodgepodge lipliner.)
Siss is described as a muted golden beige colour on the MAC website and I would say that is 'bang on' - this colour is very warm, has a distinct yellow-golden base with no pink or peach undertones. That being said, I LOVE to combine Siss with MAC's Chicory lipliner - it creates the most 'Gorgeous' warm mocha/apricot shade and its perfect for a warm everyday look - this shade next to MAC's Mocha and Revlon's Sandalwood Beige are my 'go-to' holy-grail everyday lipcolours - I would go as far as to say that they are my 'signatures'!!!
This is my perfect nude! The reason I love it so much is that it has absolutely NO pink, which is so hard to find in a nude lipstick. I hate the pink in my lips, so I'm always looking for lipsticks with no pink in them, that will cover the pink completely, and this does it. I have a light olive face, and this makes my lips almost disappear, so I generally don't wear it on its own. I always use a lip liner, and I put some gloss over it, and it looks fantastic. My HG nude!
LOVE SISS!!! I am a GGG yellow toned, NC 25-35 with pink/brown lips. Siss is PERFECT for neutralizing that pink and almost matches my skin.
Siss is yellow/beige/tan with absolutely NO orange, pink, or peach which is why I love it. It is creamy and just a tad dry. Jubilee, Honeyflower, and FreckleTone are three of my favorites but each of those tends toward peach or pink. Siss does not. It has no sparkle and no glitter. I can mix Siss with other lipsticks to tone them down or make them look more creamy.
I suggest using Stripdown liner, Siss, and Spring Bean lipgloss!!! The green and honey wetness of the Spring Bean suits Siss perfectly. They look luscious together. luscious!
Also if you like Fetish or O, try patting the lips with Siss, THEN apply Fetish or O. It takes the frost out of them and makes them look more creamy with sparkles. It's truly gorgeous. Siss makes O look less dark and less dated for my personal taste.
It is difficult imagining this color being good on its own for a pale or darker woman. But I think by changing the liner and using a 2nd lipstick or gloss suited to your skin tone, Siss could be a nice addition. I will repurchase repeatedly.
I finally bought this lipstick, This is really sexy with some clear gold sparkly gloss. I wont say that this is the best nude lipstick I ran across but it is nice.and blends with my skintone.
it's such an amazing colour on me.
at first, it does look a bit pale as my skin is quite tan and kinda yellowish.
but after a little while, it blends in with my natural lip colour and look great!
best nude colour so far for me.
I have tried cherish, Lady gaga2, honey love,
and some other nude, beige lipstick from YSL, christian dior, estee lauder, Tom ford and bare mineral etc etc ..
After lemming this product for about 4 years, I finally ordered it from the MAC website. Each time it came out is a collex at my local counter I missed it b/c it would sell out. I kept hearing about what a great shade it is and how it is a great nude for WOC. I was so excited!! However, this shade is not for everyone. I'm all for the pale lips and can rock them better than anyone! But, this just make me look like I'm sick. Really, like I'm physically ill. I thought adding a liner would help, but it just looks, blah. I want to like this lippie soooo bad. But I just can't make it work for me. I'm a DDD btw MAC NC45 & NC50.
This shade is kinda drying also. It is a satin finish, but seems drier than MACs other satin l/s. It applies almost like a brownish grey. It looks like a light, warm tan in the tube and it pics, but it doesn't apply that way at all. I really was expecting it to be similar to Freckletone, but with less gloss and more tan than peach. It's more grey than Fresh Brew, which I was scared to death to try, but is not my daily, go to nude lippie.
It might be more user friendly in the summer months, but I'm threw making products work. So, back to MAC it goes.
No sorry. I SO wanted to love this. Siss looks good on the back of my hand but TOO yellow on my lips like a banana skin!
I'd have to rely on mixing it with Cork lip pencil too much to make it neutral. I much prefer Yash from the MAC Mickey Contractor line because Yash is a real neutral as the MAC website described, not too cool, not too warm and no overt tones of just any one color unlike Siss. Ah, oh well....
