Hue is a very pretty pale pink/nude. It is a glaze finish, so its more sheer and not sticky. I think glazes are my favourite MAC lipstick finish because it's not drying or sticky. I find this is a very natural nude. This could definitely be used on an everyday basis. It's not too drying on my lips and it does tend to last for a few hours.
Perfect nude for me and everyone else I have seen it on. Because it's sheer it just lightens your natural lip colour a tiny bit making it very wearable and it doesn't wash me out at all.
This color is my perfect nude lipstick. It's true that your lips have to be well conditioned, but I found I can slick this on without liner and be very happy with the result. But if you really want to try something amazing, add a layer of Lipstick Queen Hello Sailor (blue) lipstick. It has a balm consistency and cools the shade down a bit, and hides the imperfections. It's a gorgeous combination!
I got the MAC shade "Hue" from my sister's makeup artist on the day of her wedding. I was super excited as it was my first MAC lipstick. The smell is intoxicating and I saw the colour in the tube and thought it was very pretty.
When I put it on my lips I noticed that it was streaky and showed every dry, scaly lip imperfection on my lips. Throughout the day (lots of pictures were taken) I had to reapply it as it didn't stay on very long. The more I did this the worse the colour looked on me. Even more upsetting was the fact that my lips looked extremely pale in her wedding pictures (even with photoshop!) I was so upset that this colour didn't work for me. I wear it with other lipglosses but I cannot wear it alone:(
The packaging is very nice and of course the price is not in my intended price range. If I found a MAC Lipstick shade that works for me, I wouldn't be afraid to pay the price!
First of all I love the vanilla scent Mac lipsticks have, it makes me want to chew them, YUMI!
The finish is a Glaze, which it means they are very sheer and have a glossy finish. They tend to last a short time so you have to reapply trough the day, it is perfect for those who want a touch of color on the lips.
The color is pretty, it is a soft pink, it almost give you color. I think it is a great color for fair skin tones but for medium, tan and dark skin tones it will look ridiculously pale. At least not something I find attractive.
The packaging is sleek and I find it kind of chic, dont ask me why. Also I LOVE the click sound they do when you close the lipsticks, I can open and close them enjoying the sound for the rest of my life, hahaha.
The price... What can I say? MAC is the cheap brand of the high end products but in any brand you find some product that worth the price and some that doesn't. This lipstick doesn't worth the price, its pretty but it doesnt drives me crazy. I would repurchase it just because you can put it on top of other lipstick and give a different look.
I've tried a lot of nude lipsticks and this is my favorite. It's not too opaque so it's nice that you can build it up or leave it more sheer. I normally wear this when I have a smokey or dramatic eye, however I occasionally use as a wash of color during the day and it works well for that too. Only downside to this lipstick is it does sometimes give a bad texture and make my lips look dry. I have to make sure I condition my lips a lot if I'm going to be wearing this.
My Holy Grail nude lipstick! I have light to medium skin with a yellow undertone and this lipstick looks sooooo good with my complexion! It would look really good on lighter skin too but it would be too light on darker skin past medium. The texture is so creamy and moisturizing and isn't completely matte so it's not drying on the lips. It goes with pretty much any eye look and any outfit and it's a really good everyday and going out lipstick. Definitely worth the price!
No matter what I do, I cannot get this lipstick to look good texture-wise. It shows every lip imperfection and is streaky. I don't have this problem with most other lipsticks. Angel does this on me too. I just doesn't work for me.
The M.A.C. Lipstick in the shade "Hue" is the perfect lipstick for beginning makeup users. This was my first M.A.C. lipstick and I absolutely love the shade and the consistency. It feels very smooth on your lips and lasts for a good amount of time. Be sure to apply a little bit of product because if an abundance of this product is applied, it can look caky. Overall, this product would look great on most skin tones, is a great deal, and I would definitely repurchase this lipstick again!
Hue is just so easy to wear! It is a pink based nude that definitely has to be built up for desired opacity. It is a Glaze which means that it has sheerer coverage and a glossy finish -- similar to a Lustre. Typically Hue lasts about 1.5-2 hours before I have to reapply. I typically wear it with a smokey eye. If you are looking for a super wearable nude, look no further than Hue!
