I do like this for evenings but not for day as it has a definate peach undertone. Good consistancy BUT no staying power as its cremesheen, unlike Myth.
This is my FAVORITE lipstick ever. I am Filipino so I have an Olive/Tan skin color and I love all nude colors of lipstick I'm not a big fan of reds or bright colors and It doesnt dry out my lips and looks awesome with my skin color.
Oh Creme d'Nude! I love you!!
I have very large, full lips, and love nude colors. This is perfect! It's the lipstick us nude junkies have always wanted Myth to be - super nude yet creamy and lush, not chalky, hard to apply, or drying. As much as I love - and suffer through - Myth, Creme d'Nude really is the winner between the two. It's very, very light, and seems to be quite neutral-toned, at least on me (NC20-25). It's moisturizing and makes lips look lovely instead of tortured like what Myth usually does to them. It slicks on so easily, and wears great.
Overall, this is a wonderful nude, and if you're a nude-lover like I am, you simply MUST have this in your arsenal! Absolutely perfect for pairing with a dark smokey eye as well.
I'm nearly ready to call this my hg nude lippie. Most nude lippies make me look dead. This has enough of a peachy/warm tone to not do that, plus its extra creamy (cremesheen) which I quite like. I'm a huge fan of the formula. Just got this color but so far I love it, I've topped with wildly lush (a warm nude gloss) to great effect. I'm in love! Not since I discovered 'shy girl' have I loved a lippie so! I have warm toned skin so maybe that's why I needed a warm nude? who knows? who cares? I love this color!
I love this lipstick, but it is so difficult to use! The color is beautiful and suits my skin very nicely (I am an NW 20-25). It has just the right amount of pink in it to keep it from looking like you put foundation on your lips. It's very creamy and smooth as well. One of my problems with this though is that it isn't quite pigmented enough. Even after layering it on, sometimes it just looks like a semi-opaque gloss. My other problem with this is that it is really, really easy for this to look awful. All it takes is one tiny flake on your lips. If your lips are really chapped or dry, forget this lipstick. I REALLY have to prep my lips to wear this -- I'm talking lip scrub, scrubbing my lips with a toothbrush, everything -- and sometimes even that doesn't work! Your lips have to be completely smooth or this will just look like some kind of nasty milky substance all over your lips.
Then, after a few hours of wear, this starts drying out my lips. It seems so silky and smooth, but it is definitely not moisturizing. That brings me back to the problem of flaky lips, and I have to wipe this off. On lucky days when this doesn't dry out my lips too much, I can get 4 hours of wear with this, which is disappointing because most MAC lipsticks I own give me around 5-6.
But all complaints aside, I love this color, and if my lips are in good enough condition to wear this, I love wearing it, especially with smoky eyes. I would buy this again because I love the color, I just wish the formula could somehow be better; I feel like if this was a Satin instead of a Cremesheen, it might be perfect.
This is one of MAC's more famous nude shades, so I was disappointed to find that this didn't suit my rather fair, NC15, skin and colouring at all! Admittedly, I usually go for the pinkier MAC nude shades, whereas this is quite clearly a orange based nude. I can image this would suit more tanned and golden skin tones (eg. the famous Jo Wood) but I would advise fairer and paler skin tones to beware this shade.
Creme d'Nude works very good with my coloring. I'm medium/olive w/ neutral tones and mauve pink lips. I really like this because it takes away the coolness of my natural lip color and give me a more neutral canvas. I love the texture of this l/s, it is creamy and moist. I own three nudes from MAC (CdN, Blankety & Honeylove). To compare, CdN is my favorite out of the three and leans more neutral. Blankety is my 2nd favorite but leans more warm on me. Honeylove is my least favorite, it accenuates the coolness in my natural lip color and turns a bit ashy on me. CdN works great paired w/ a smoky eye and topped w/ a nude sparkle gloss for night. I also like wearing CdN for daytime by swipping a layer on my lips then gently blotting the color w/ a tissue creating a slight hue of color. I really love the quality of MAC l/s and they are so affordable. Also, I love the scent of MAC l/s and they don't dry out my lips. I guess the only con would be the staying power. This l/s last about 3 hours on me before I need to re-apply.
Oh my I love my new lippie. Creme d'nude is my HG for nude lipsticks! I can't wait to get another one, because I already know this will be used up before I know it. Oh it looks amazing with Instant Gold lip gloss. NW40 muah it! xoxo
Im always on the hunt for a nude lipstick that works for me and I really don't think I will ever find one. Creme d'Nude is a very nice lipstick, its creamy, and very pigmented. My problem is that I have fair skin, and very pigmented lips (bordering on a light red) and when I apply this lipstick it doesn't cover the redness well. It literally looks like I have some weird milky stuff on my lips. Also, if i have even remotely dehydrated lips (even after applying lip balm) this lipstick CLINGS to any dry skin and makes it looks 10X worse. The only way I can wear this is if i apply a light gloss (i use NARS turkish delight)
