This is a very pretty cool, pinkish mauve color. Im warm toned though, so this didnt look as good as I had hoped :( It turns out a vibrant purple-ey shade...not a ylbb mauve like everyone said it was. This just isnt for my coloring, so I wouldnt buy it again.
I got Syrup for free when I returned 6 MAC empties. I was really drawn to this color and so excited when it looked go on me. I'm incredibly fair with freckles and really thin lips. I'm lucky when I can find a lipcolor that works and that i LOVE. I'll definitely buy this again.
This is definitely cool-toned. And although I don't reach for it all the time, I really like it. One of the few lipsticks that I can apply without a mirror...its that sheer. This is a very subtle colour, not bright at all. But it is distinctly a pink, so you have to match the rest of your face accordingly. Will repurchase!
Hmmm... I didn't like this one. The texture of these lustres is nice, but this shade didn't work on me. I usually like purples and mauves, but this looked a bit too purple on my lips. It wasn't bright, and if used sparingly doesn't look that bad. But, you know when you first put a lippie on and something doesn't look right, well that's what happened.
I agree with amny comments here - a flattering pinky color, with hints of a mauvey purple (but not a shocking or Nico purple) colro - this is fairly sheer alone, which I didn't even know at first as I was using liner under it. This is quite versatile and feels great on! I can use it as a light stain with heavier done eyes, especially when topped with a little clear gloss. I can also wear this shade with MAC's Plum lip liner (again, applied lightly) and then topped with a little pinky gloss - pretty look! I am quite quite pleased with this shade as it's the only Lustre to date I have liked.
This pretty, muted lavender is just a little too cool for me (LLL w/ golden-pink undertones), but it's so light and sheer that it's workable. I like it with Lust Lipglass overtop or Oak lip pencil underneath.
This is a YLBB shade for the cool toned gals but is light enough and not too cool so neutral toned and warm-toned gals can wear it too. I love the texture of this lustre lipsticks. Very smooth and moisturizing. Definately a thumbs up for MAC on this formula!
A pretty lavender-mauve. Nice and sheer, and moisturizing. Can look different depending on the liners you use with it. Very nice, subtle but pretty color. I am warm-toned and it looks natural on me; I think this would work for a wide variety of skin tones because it is so sheer--you can layer it for greater color.
Syrup is wonderful when I want to do more intense eyes- nude lips just don't work for me, but Syrup gives the perfect soft slick of colour and shine.
The shade is a cool-toned pink with slightly mauve undertones. The texture is lovely- so light and moisturising, with a glossy, almost wet finish. Easy to wear, and I don't even need a mirror to apply. continued >>
The Lustre lippies are my favorite l/s in the MAC line. The Satins, Mattes, and Frost are too drying for my lips. I got Syrup, my third Lustre, and I really thought it would be too faded pink on me. The color description on MAC.com says a "Cloudy Pink." On me, Syrup is not a cloudy pink at all, but a pretty lavendar that goes well with Plum l/l (with the l/l lightly applied). It also feels very light and creamy on the lips. I am glad I got it because I had been wanting it for a while. Now, I want Hug Me.
