I really really wanted to like this lippie.. This was my second MAC lipstick that I decided to buy based on reviews, and eh, waste of money.
I have quite pigmented lips (they're a plummy red colour) and this goes on so smooth, but SO patchy. I've tried a lipliner underneath, a lip primer, base, everything, and I can't get it to look 'normal'. Cremesheens aren't exactly the best for me either. I have dry lips if I don't use lipbalm everyday and I actually find the texture far TOO creamy. They seem to slip everywhere and melt into the fine lines of my lips.
This lipstick would probably be HG for girls with lips that do not have much colour to them as it is very opaque, which is why I believe it deserves 2 lippies.
But if you have pigmented/dry lips, don't waste your money!
Took me a little while to figure out how to wear this and have it look nice. I definitely have to do quite a bit of prep; I exfoliate and load up on the lip balm the night before I know I want to wear this so my lips are really supple. My lips are quite pigmented already, so I use the foundation trick (I use Revlon colorstay) letting it set a little, then apply one or two swipes of lipstick. If I skip the foundation step, it's not pretty and I end up going back to redo. So it's a little work, but overall good results :)
I am not a big lipstick wearer, but I do love to collect them. This color is actually my favorite nude. It is a little like freckletone but less orange. I really like for school because it is natural and hydrates my lips.
I have to say that this is the perfect nude color for me. I've tried others like Myth (too pale), Gaga 2 (too beige), and several others but this one in my HG. I also love the Cremesheen lippies because they don't try out my lips, aren't dry in general (so I don't need a lip balm), and feels nice and creamy.
For reference i wear NW15-25 and sometimes NC15
I just got this today and love it!! I was looking for a nude lipstick that wouldn't look like a concealed and this one is perfect. It's a little sheer but that's what I like about it. This will definitely be my everyday nude lipstick!
I really wanted to love this but I can't. It's definitely very creamy so it's not too drying. My lips are pretty pigmented but it's not as pigmented as I wanted it to be. When applied to dried lips, it exaggerates any lip flakes and color doesn't stay. Then again, I really hope everyone knows it isn't the best idea to apply lipstick to dry lips anyway haha. Overall, not too bad. It'll probably work best with those who don't have very pigmented lips like I do. I also really love the scent, it's delicious!
This creme nude with pink undertones is a staple nude in my lipstick collection.
No shimmer or glitter, and glides on my lips like butter. Imparts some moisture and a subtle sheen, without being too opaque that you look breathless.
As all MAC lipsticks has a nice vanilla scent, although i have found that the cremesheen lipsticks tend to have a more plastic note to them?
I would buy this again, it is not chalky like Myth.
This is a great pinky nude. The only reason why I did not give 5 stars is because I find it a little too sheer.
Also, on my red pigmented lips, it comes out like a light bubblegum pink, and not a true nude. I have to layer it on heaps for it to become more nude and less light pink.
This isn't chalky or drying, but it will accentuate any flakiness on your lips.
I also haven't found the staying power to be that great, probably because of how creamy/sheer it is.
I thought this was my HG nude when I first bought it, but I think I need something less pinky and less sheer.
I wanted to find a perfect nude and I'm a fan of MAC's creme sheen lipsticks. I find their Satins drying and their mattes also too drying but the creme sheen's are great. The girl at the counter showed me both this and Myth. I have some of MACs more nude-pinks like Marquise D'Or and Rose a Romance but I wanted a true nude to layer over other shades. This is awesome. I layered this over a hot pink lip penncil as well as giving it a try over MAC's lip pencil Delish and both times, it looked great. I wouldn't wear it alone because it would be really hard to pull off without looking dead. I think the only time it could be worn alone is with a good pink-nude liner and a very smoky/heavy eye. Either way, it was moisturizing, it stayed on for hours and managed to survive me drinking a cup of tea and still stay on. I'm really glad I purchased this. My only problem with MAC is their very boring packaging but then again, I'm a sucker for pretty packaging like Too Faced.
Wanted to love, but made me look washed out and, well, dead.
