This was overall a nice lipstick, but didn't impress me much. Could have stopped at a local drugstore and bought something much like this color. Typical shade, I'd say. It does look nice though. Very natural! Would look great with a brozed look. I have to give thumbs up for such a wonderful formula! It's so smooth, and creamy. The only thing I don't like is how it looks like I applied lip gloss, but that is to be expected with a lustrous lipstick. I would recommend this to a friend.
I have finally found my HG everyday lipstick.
I was surprised because the mac mua told me not to get it because it will not show up on my lips and she suggested to just get honeyflower. I HATED the way honeflower looked on me so i went back i got the hug me. im glad i did because i love love love this for everyday use. even when im feeling bummy i can just throw it on and not look like im overdoing it.
I'm nc45 with brownish lips. I first line my lips with stripdown liner and then use this lipstick.
Hug me I wish I could Hug you! This is the lipstick I have been looking for: not shimmery, very smooth, a nice shine and adds to the pigment of my lips without overpowering. I great every day, wear to work shade.
With my fair skin, blonde hair and blue eyes it works well with many makeup color schemes.
This is a creamy, warm, mauve-y lipstick with some pink undertones to it.
I have fair-medium skin, and this went on a little darker on me than I expected. No frost or glitter. It has sort of a light vanilla smell to it.
If you're looking for a nude lipstick with some light hint of color in it, then you might like this. It was a little more "mauve" than "pink" on me. Actually, the color seems to match the most pigmented part of my lips almost exactly. I prefer lighter pink and peach undertones when it comes to nude lipsticks. Personally, I think this would look better on people with medium to darker skin tones.
It's a good quality lipstick, as far as texture, lasting wear, and pigmentation goes, but it doesn't suit me personally the way I had hoped. I'll use it up, but I probably won't repurchase. Recommended for others though.
Just bought Hug Me yesterday as i was looking for a shade for everyday wear. i love the texture of this lipstick as this is a lustre, and it is defintiely much easier to apply compared to my Creamsheen Creme d'Nude. This is definitely a MLBB shade, so if you are looking for anything that is dramatic, Hug Me will not satisfy you, as it will only make your lips look more polished and healthily pinkish (in my opinion). i can foresee that i'm going to reach for this very often, especially on casual days when i don't want to appear too made up. love the trademark vanilla smell of MAC lipsticks! lasting power is towards the shorter side though, i find myself reapplying at least 3 - 4 times a day, but i'm pretty okay with that. Another winner from MAC. :)
MAC's "hug me" lustre lipstick is a creamy, warm beige almost putty colour, and it is deep enough in winter to make me look alive (I wear MAC NC20 concealor). If I am having a pale day it can look a little too peachy, but otherwise it is a my-lips-but-better shade. I don't wear this lipstick in the summer when I am more naturally tanned (NC25) because it washes me out.
The price of this in Australia is $35AUD, a little too dear for me to buy back-ups. Besides the price, I have complaints about the formula of this shade. The texture of the lustre lipsticks tends to emphasise the lines in my lips, this is particularly a problem if the shade is one-dimensional rather than irridescent. I'm in my mid-thirties and the last thing I want from a lipstick is for it to make me look like I have lip wrinkles. Also "Hug Me" only lasts thirty minutes after application even without eating or drinking. I am too busy to reapply lipstick every thirty minutes. Finally, the lipstick leans against the side of the tube when I apply it, creating ring marks all over the stick. I am afraid the stick will break off at the base. Perhaps MAC can solve this problem by packaging the lustres in slim tubes rather than traditional lipstick bullets?
I won't repurchase "hug me" but I might consider other lipsticks in the lustre formula because I've tried MAC lustre lipstick in "touch" and it was not as soft as "hug me" and also had better staying power.
I love this l/s! For reference, I am NC35 and this l/s is a perfect mix of light pink with a very slight beige to it, but it's def. more pink on me. I can wear this color everyday & although I like it with spice as a liner, I prefer it with NYX lip liner in natural. It is a perfect neutral color, but really pretty, that is very wearable for me & paired with a smoky eye is so pretty.
I would def. recommend it for anyone that has a medium/tan complexion. I read some of the other reviews saying the formula was very sheer for them, that is not the case for me, although my l/s is over a year old. The consistency is very smooth, not drying but yet it does last longer than my l/g, it doesn't have any sparkles in it or glitter. When I run out I will def. re-purchase. One of my HG!
Hug me is a very neutral beige with a small amount of pink. Upon applying this lipstick, I can barely tell I've applied it at all because the color is so neutral and sheer. I find that I have to wear a lipliner and/or wear a gloss on top. Its an ok lipstick but probably not the best choice for those with pigmented lips. At this time, I won't be repurchasing.
This is a beige (almost) nude lipstick with a pinkish undertone. I love it! When you're a bit tanned, it looks gorgeous. Thus, you have to warm up your skin a bit with bronzing powder. And the glossy texture of the lustre lipstisck gives a really comfortable feel. Love the vanilla smell too!
MAC describes this as a flesh pink. I don't really see much pink in this lipstick. It looks more of a natural beige on me with some brown undertones. Absolutely no glitter in this lipstick. Good for those who like nude looks that are not overly pale as this provides more colour than MAC's ultra pale lipsticks such as Creme d'nude, Blankety and Myth. Unfortunately, this is much too nude for me. Too pale indoors and outdoors and even under sunlight. I need more pink in my lipsticks. Also, the lustre formula seems a bit too drying although when first applied there is a slightly glossy finish. Probably won't buy this again.
