There are a lot of reviews on here calling this a porn star pink... No. When I picture a porn star pink I think of a more baby, pastel, chalky pink. Is this color bright? Yes. Is this color trashy? No. Is this color wearable? Yes. Because this color is an amplified cream it has very buildable coverage meaning you can layer more lipstick on for a brighter finish. There are blue undertones to this lipstick and it doesn't make my teeth look yellow. To wear this on a daily basis I layer it lightly over my lip balm. The color does last on me but with eating and drinking it does fade faster but not in a gross way. I love this color and will repurchase when I run out of it.

This has almost as much pigment as lip tars but without the stickiness. Overall easier to use and very good quality. The color is very bright and to be honest sometimes I think it looks like a "pornstar pink" color. I think it's just one of those colors that you need to have the perfect skin tone to pull off.

It was so beautiful in the package, I didn't even try it and just bought it. It made my teeth look so horribly yellow, even though they're professionally whitened! For reference, I'm brown hair, hazel eyes, and porcelain skin tone with what I would think are good quality whitened teeth lol, but this lipstick disagrees with that. Oh well, it still looks pretty in my makeup collection, but I'm still sad about it.

Talk about WOW, the lipstick is not for the faint of heart! It is almost like a barbie gum pink but more on the paler pink color spectrum. I actually got this color initially for my birthday, but I also purchased "Candy Yum Yum" so I could mix them together to create the perfect punch of color. I never thought I'd love this alone! I was sort of afraid this made my teeth look yellow, but there is a slight blue undertone to it that let's me get away with it. :) This stuff is VERY pigmented and lasts a long time.

Love this color with my skin tone. After seeing so many great review on this color by WOC I had to have it. I get a lot of compliments on this lipstick

I loved this lipstick when I first got it the color was perfect!!! I think as I further used it the color changed and I didn't like it that much and I think it's kind of to shiny almost like a lip-gloss I like the bold matte lip...I wear this color from time to time but I wouldn't purchase it again!!!

I really like the colour of this lipstick however it does not suit my skin tone very well, i feel like the tone of the product flushes me out a little however I think with a tan it would look nice against my colour. the packaging is MACs typical packaging nothing special. I feel like it is over priced but aren't all of MACs lispticks. I am not a fan of the formula I prefer satin and matte finishes. when applying this lipstick I found that it does not sit well on the lips it kind of covers some sections of the lip but not others if that makes sense. for that reason I will not be repurchasing this item.

The sales rep could not get this off of me fasr enough for her or my taste. She sighed a deep breath of relief when I came to my own conclusion that it was just bad. I am Nw20, almost black hair, brown eyes, rosey lips. I wanted Saint Germain to be a pastel pinkish lilac shade. But on me it was just a bright, off looking Barbie-esque pink. I did not look porn star, but it did not look all. It is pretty much how Pink Swoon was on just sat there, not playing nice with my skin tone.

Ooh I love Saint German! Great pigmentation and the color is exactly how it should be, bubblegum Barbie pink. My boyfriend loves this color too. Seems to be a general consensus here.
