I am a pale skinned redhead with green eyes. I really cannot do nudes or I look like a corpose. And, in my not so humble opinion, lips and skin are SUPPOSED to be different colors. That said, I do need a pretty, natural color that I can wear for daytime and more casual looks. That's harder than you might think, because although I am pale, my complection is very warm, with sallow undertones. For this reason, anything pink looks abysmal on me. And when I do find the right shade, it's inevitably too dark or too light.
This is a really, really nice natural, (NOT NUDE) lip color that I can wear with pretty much any eye look, whether dramatic or understated. It is a very warm tone, but I wouldn't call it exactly peachy, though I suppose peach means different things to different people. It's more of a deep flesh tone. But that's not really accurate either. I just know this color works for me.
The smell is lovely, the quality is excellent and it is very moisturizing.
I don't love the consistency. I'm a WW leader so I speak a lot. Anything too creamy or glossy gets on my teeth when I'm speaking, which isn't pretty. And, those kind of formulations tend to twear off far too quickly for my liking. While not overtly sheer or glossy, it is much lighter than I would normally select and does not last the way I would like it to.
HOWEVER. I like the color enough that I can deal with it. I find that pplying a lipliner or a longwearing lip product beneath it boosts wear time significantly.
I said I would rebuy because the quality is good and the color is so perfect for me. But I am going to explore similar tones in other finishes. Honeylove? Cherish? Mocha?
Welcome to the cult of MAC, I guess!
This is a great, everyday, subtle lip color. The lipstick smells amazing, goes on smooth, and moisturizes my lips all day. It really is a "posh" color...goes with just about everything. Love. A must have and my newest HG item.
Posh Tone is a wonderful nude for those of us that hate nudes. It is shimmery by a BIT, peach so for warm skin I guess. But maybe there is a touch of pink in it. For all that mositure it lasts maybe .5 or a half an hour, ridiculous. Feels good though. Upscale packaging.
