I would describe this as a nude lip pencil, but quite a dark nude? I got it specifically to wear with MAC's Strength lipstick but of course wear it with all sorts of other lipsticks.
Other reviewers have commented that they find MAC lipliners drying. I don't find this, even though I use it not only to line the lips, but also to fill in. But I do always use a lip moisturizing product before I apply anything, so maybe that's the answer?
I think this color is perfect for me, but only when its worn on the sheer side and then with some type of lipgloss. I'm very warm toned, yellow-beige coloring. When I apply it heavily, the color is too dark for my taste. It seems to be really long lasting too, almost like a soft stain effect. I wore this and my mom said that my lips looked great and she loved the color.
Perfection. I have found the perfect lip liner. To me, it's not orangy at all, but a golden cherry color that's so versatile, it can blend with reds, pinks, bronzes, and nudes. Amazing!
From MAC Website: Soft muted peachy-brown
Me: Tough one to describe, since Chicory is a fairly complex colour: rusted medium red/brown with a somewhat-orange undertone. A very "warm" shade.
Hmmm...not bad. This is a shade which tilts very strongly towards the "warm" camp, which is one reason why a lot of reviewers who have "cool" colouring don't like this much. :)I don't see a lot of orange in this lip pencil, and neither do I see a lot of peach (nor a lot of coral!). Depending on how you wear it, it can be rather bright and bold. If you find that this doesn't work for you, you may want to wear it more sheer as it may turn out better that way. If you like EEntice lipglass, I'm guessing you'll love this as well.

This is a deep orangy-brown color, wouldn't buy again because it's too dark.
I adore this lip liner...It looks so sexy with a sheer peach lip gloss like versace's sparkling orange...
I keep Chicory around for those days I feel like wearing a coral or orange lip. Since those days are rare for me I don't think I would repurchase because this one may last a long time.
This pencil is too orange for me. The colour is sort of a medium rust, wrong for my colouring.
I wear this with Fresco lipstick, or with clear Lipglass over it, and it's so, so pretty. Great consistency and glide, like all the MAC lip pencils.
This is the VERY BEST lipliner known to man!!! Could not live without this. Have worn it for years. Gives just the right amount of definition and works with all my MAC lipsticks as well as other brands. My make-up would not complete without it. It is the bomb!!!
