I absolutely adore this shade and it's glossiness, however it doesn't stay on as long as I had hoped. I find myself re applying this all of the time. And although I love the shade, a few people have told me it looks like i'm wearing concealer or foundation on my lips..
I really like this lipstick! I have quite naturally dry lips and it doesn't highlight the dry bits very much, although it does very slightly. The colour is perfect! I love wearing it on nights out with smokey eyes. I'd say its a good colour to try if myth looks too light on you. The staying power isn't amazing, if you have a drink it will come off. However, i don't mind re-applying as i don't even need a mirror, just a quick swipe and thats it :) The packaging looks so pretty as well!
I am a fan of the nude lip look paired with smoky eyes. Usually in the past I have used Myth lipstick or C-Thru or Underaged Lipglass to achieve the look. I saw this, and figured I would give it a go.
It shows up just a little too dark on me. (I am NW15 for reference.) I like that this has a bit more sheen then Myth but have to apply some concealer to my lips before using this. For that reason I would not repurchase. For those with a medium skin tone or less pigmented lips, I think this would be much more flattering!
This can be a pretty nude color, but you really have to manipulate it to make it work on darker skin. For me, I have to wear a pink based nude lipgloss on top of it. When I do this, Gaga 2 beats every nude lip that I have- including Yash, Siss, Viva Glam V, and Fresh Brew. But, by itself, Gaga 2 looks like condensed milk on my lips.
There's a few methods for making this work if it looks too much like concealer on you. You don't HAVE to apply straight from the tube and press hard against your lips. You can either lightly pat it on to your lips direct from the tube, or you can swatch it on the back of your hand and apply it with a finger. It doesn't come out so opaque that way. It also picks up more color under a pink lip gloss.
I'm not saying this is for everyone, but you can try different application methods before writing it off.
It's not chalky at all, it's very creamy and applies nicely. I'm a pale person and, if not applied so harshly, it doesn't make me look dead.
This is superficial, but I love the packaging. It's so pretty.
This nude is perfect for any skin color. It's beautiful.
This is an okay lipstick, the consistancy is nice. However, firstly it does seem to exaggerate any dryness or inperfections on my lips. Secondly the colour was awful on me. I have very fair skin with a cool tone. This lipstick would suit someone with warm toned skin, but for me, a big no-no!
This was a nice color but it's not for me I am tan skinned and this looked ghostly on me. I wanted to make this work for me so bad since this was such a hyped lipstick/ lipgloss which did't wokr for me either. My husband got this for me after I mentioned to him that I liked it at macy's. A few weeks later he got it for me as a surprise. I felt so bad because the surprise was that I hated it. we went back that same day to MAC to return it and I got to other lippies that I love Cherish and Half and Half. I'm not knocking this product it just didn't work for my skin tone.
I love this lipstick, its a really nice nude. The packaging is also nice. This nude looks good on me and i have pigmented lips, i think this would look better on fair skin, because it might look weird on SOME tan skinned people. I like adding a gloss overtop incase you can see the cracks in your lips. Over all its a nice lipstick but try it on somehow before purchasing.
I love this lipstick. Im not a big lipstick fan but I saw the color is beautiful and I havnt seen anything like it. Plus all proceeds go to aids research so you cant go wrong. I purchased with the lipgloss actually not a great fan of the lip gloss and it looks freaky when I wear them together I have to wear a different lipgloss with it forsure but overall I really love this I would def buy again too bad its limited edition I hate when MAC does that guhhh..
