After many failed attempts to purchase this lipstick I finally got my hands on it. (The stores were always sold out). I LOVE this shade. Love it! I have tried other nude shades and they do nothing for me. With my skin tone, the shade comes off pinky, which looks really nice. I do wear a clear gloss over. It doesn't dry out my lips, which I really like.
The color is nice when my lips are closed but once I smile with my teeth exposed, it just doesn't look right. It makes my teeth look to dark and yellow. I kind of hate the smell, too. Gave me headache the first time I used it.
So many pretty pics online so finally bought one. Should have smelled it first - like expired cosmetic smell, very plasticky. On my NC25-30 with yellow undertone, it looks too cakey and Barbie-doll pink. Better suited to under-25 women. Asia and Paradise are better shades for me.
Due to it being winter I am pretty light right now (NC20) and I can not get into this lipstick. I do not see what the big deal is about it. The color is a mauve/pink type color that comes out with more of a purple tone, the smell is HORRIBLE! I am talking instant headache! But it does seem to last pretty well, however you need to apply a lot to get the color to show up. As of right now I wouldnt repurchase this but who knows, maybe in summer when I am more tan this will look better?? For now...its a thumbs down!
I have a lot of trouble with nude lipsticks. They often make me look really, really washed out, when what I want is just a tiny bit of color. Airy Fairy is my absolute favorite nude lipstick because it gives me the perfect amount of natural color, and I love the formula. It's really moisturizing, and I find that it lasts just as long as the average lipstick.
I find myself reaching for this lipstick almost everyday. Highly recommend it!
Ever since I bought this lipstick, I've been using it ever since! It took me a while to find this because I never quite understood the hype of it, until I used my sister's. After that, I was like WOW this is a pretty good drugstore lipstick. I ended up buying it at Wal Mart I think. This color makes my lip color look healthier with a tinge more pink! I love pairing it with Revlon Lilac Pastelle! Soo if you have that lipgloss, try it! It compliments each other real well :)) The smell is fruity, but not overwhelming at all. it goes away within minutes. I can understand the hype about this product & I can see it suiting many skintones. I heard this color is going to be DC soon??!? I hope not! *cross fingers* continued >>
I bought this for 75% off at CVS a couple of weeks ago. A lot of YT gurus mention this lipstick so I decided to try it. The packaging is very cute (has an imprinted rimmel crown on top) and sturdy. It does have a scent...it's like a synthetic sweet/fruity scent. Doesn't bother me but most scents aren't offensive to me. It's a mauvey pink color that is an alternative for a nude (NC35-40). It is a medium-full coverage lipsticks (leaning more full). It's a nice color to wear if you want something other than your regular nudes. It lasts about 3-4 hours on me. I would definitely recommend you go pick this up (idk if its being discontinued bc its 75% off @cvs). Love this lipstick!
This is somewhere between a pink nude and MLBB on my NW20 skin, rosey brown pigmented lips. It isn't as MLBB as MAC Patisserie. And it isn't even as pink nude as MAC Innocence Beware (or Creme de Nude - but that is even more nude than Innocence Beware). I would actually prefer this shade on me for a MLBB look, because I like to tone down the rosey brown in my lips to a soft more pale pink. It works better for most eye makeup/blush. Airy Fairy does the trick.
The biggest con the tube is not sealed and you have to try to find one that doesn't look like it has been used as a tester. The other con is that these lippies don't feel or smell that great. But they are dirt cheap.
I bought this at CVS at 75% off which was great! I really like nude color. It is nude but with a hint of pink so it isn't one of those nudes that make your lips look dead! Pick it up while you can. Not sure if they will be bringing this shade back.
I got ‘Airy Fairy’ for 75% off at CVS. It has gotten such great reviews here on MUA and for the price I couldn’t pass it up, even though I’m typically not a nude-lipstick girl. I had tried ‘Birthday Suit’ years ago and found it to be too warm/orange for my neutral-toned skin. This is definitely its cooler, pinker, counter-part. ‘Airy Fairy’ is a pale shimmery nude-pink. Not really sheer, but it feels and looks ‘lightweight’. It has kind of a dry feel & finish to it, so I apply balm first and top it with a little clear gloss for that nude-lip & smoky-eyes look. I don’t wear it often since I usually go for a little color on my lips, but its definitely nice to have in my rotation. The lasting power is pretty good, about 2-3 hours, and it reapplies easily. Its light enough in color that I can apply without a mirror and not risk looking ridiculous. It has a very sweet, candy-like scent and taste that I don’t love, but I can live with it. The packaging looks nice, a deep shimmery plum plastic tube, but the cap does not stay on very securely, and the tube itself is ‘fatter’ than most other lipsticks which doesn’t make it the best for toting around for touch-ups. But those minor complaints aside, this is a nice color, and the formula & staying power are decent, and for the price I feel like I got a real deal. I’m guessing the ‘Lasting Finish’ line of lipsticks is being discontinued, so pick it up while you still can. continued >>
