My 7yo dd picked this out for me for a b2m free lippie. Normally I wear more intense lippies but thought I would give this a try. This is a very fresh innocent mid-tone pink, it is ylbb, only in a little bit pinker way. It has a slight hint of a cool tone, not enough to appear lavendar, just enough to make my lips stand out from my face a little more.
I don't see any shimmer or frost in this, it is somewhat glossy. I would not describe it as sheer exactly, it is just somewhat less pigmented. I haven't had luck wearing lg over this, the sheer-ish formula doesn't look as good sheered out even more by gloss.
To begin with, I'm not a big lipstick fan (I mainly wear the lip conditioner). I'm asian with NC30 skin and I've got really pigmented lips and everything turns out quiet dark/red. I wanted a pink lipstick that will show up, be moisturizing and good staying power. At first, this looks kinda scary on its own..but when you apply two layers it looks amazing. First few times it takes getting used to...but not long.
I work in an accounting firm so it's tame for the office but i reach for this almost everyday. I don't use a liner but this gives a fresh, clean and soft pink look. It's NOT at all barbie doll or chalky. I don't wear this with gloss but this is an awesome everyday fresh pink look. Highly recommend it.
Lovely cool girlie pink. It is more pink and less peachy than Chanel Imagination, and it is less frosty than Estee Lauder Candy. Nice and moisturizing. Top with some gloss for more punch.
OMG I Love this lipstick. The shade is very Barbie pink, not sheer but not very pigmented either, just perfect. Im so hooked, I want more from the same line. Perfect pink for me.
Gorgeous colour, not quite hot pink yet not quite bubblegum pink. It's in the middle of those two yet not overbearing at all. I love it, a very Summer/Spring kind of look.
I was looking for a warm, creamy pink that didn't look garish against my pale skin. When I tried it on at the store, I thought it looked very cool on my lips, but it seemed warm on the tissue when I blotted. I've since tried it with a neutral liner, and with a sheer coral gloss (Trish McEvoy in tropical nude) on top to achieve the look I wanted. It's pretty and fresh and I think I'll be using it often this spring, but I'm just not in love. The lasting power really does leave something to be desired, as well.
ewwww. For ref im nc25, blonde hair, grey-blue eyes. This is my own fault i guess for making quick purchases on a whim. I was browsing the mac counter waiting for a friend to meet me and this l/s caught my eye. Now let me tell u, harrods store lighting can be very deceptive!on my hand this looked like the perfect baby pink l/s, without being too pale/white and certainly no frost, so i thought why not and bought it (£11). When i got home it looked somewhat different in normal day light and house light. This is a very cool toned blue- based, bright, garish pink. Really bright and looked horrible on me. Nice glossy finish and texture though :) The colour- horrible. Not the baby pink/girly pink i was after. I might try this on my nan and give her it as a xmas present otherwise its going back to mac!
This is just eh. I am very cool-toned, and this very cool light yet hot pink just does not flatter. Stila's Liza is similar & much prettier IMO.
my first lipstick from mac..bright pink and moisturise my lips..the colour is so beautiful and longlasting..moreover,it is flattering,my face doesnt look dark or pale with it..luv this lipstick very much!!
Wow, this is my HG light to medium cotton candy pink lipstick. And probbaly my #2 fave lipstick of all time (#1 being MAC Pink Nouveau). I just got this.. its long lasting, with a wet shiny finish, but thank God, no ugly pearly frosty shimmery crap in it.. This is such a rare color - its cool/blue based (but not too cool), no purple, no red, no brown, its a bright, light, super pink thats very richly pigmented...if you're afraid of a ultra feminine pink innocent look, stay away from this!
