This color is very similar to MAC's Taupe lipstick but it's not matte and is very creamy. It's slightly lighter in color than Taupe. It looks like a light brown with coral undertones on my NC45 complexion. It's a nice winter nude on me, but I'm not sure if I can buy this again, I think it was a limited edition.
Refined russet is a creamy medium brown-beige lipstick. It goes well on the application,it stays on long. It goes well with any neutral eye shadow. Love it!
