I bought this because I don't have Lollipop Lovin and heard that Sandy B is similar. Well, I'm glad I did not buy Lollipop Lovin because I don't care for the shade of Sandy B. On me, it appears a very frosty coral. I don't care for OTT frost. Anyway, I won't return it. I'm sure I may use it a few times or may mix it with another less frosty lipstick.
Something I learned from this lipstick is that MAC frost lipstick finish just doesn't work on me. I saw this lipstick in the MAC store and I was like OMG, this is the perfect peachy pink color I have been looking for, it looked like NARS Orgasm Blush but in a lipstick form. So I bought it right a way.
But when I got home and tried it on, the color turned out to be really disappointing. Yes, it was still that NARS Orgasm like peachy pink color, but the gold shimmer sheen in the color overpowered everything. When I look at my lips, the first thing popped out was the metallic frosty golden sheen, not the peachy pink color that I wanted. To fix that, I tried different lipglosses on top of the lipstick to tone down the gold sheen, and none of them worked out, all the lipglosses did was amplify the gold in the lipstick which was exactly the opposite of what I wanted.
And as the consistency goes, the lipstick glides on really smoothly, but the formula is quite drying.
So overall, this lipstick just isn't for me. I wanted to like it but the gold sheen in the color just really turns me off. I hope MAC will make a lipstick in the same color but without the gold sheen in a different formula someday.
This lippie went back the the MAC store.

This is a great nude pink color. It looks good on most skin tones. It smells great and just kinda glides on. Just add a little lip gloss of your choosing and you are good to go.
One of my all time favorite MAC lipsticks! Just polished off my first tube and starting on a second. Sandy B is the perfect light peach with gold micro shimmer. It looks great paired with more dramatic eye makeup and a peachy bronze blush! Nice pigmentation and just enough but not too much "frost". One of my HG go-to lipsticks!
good product, but not so amazing.
the texture is awful, so it is hard to apply it evenly. but it is quite moisturizing, so i don't hate it.
the color is gorgeous.
might buy again, but it is just a okay product to me.
This looks great with a little gloss. I wear this with Nars Orgasm blush and MAC Expensive Pink eyeshadow for a gorgeous peachy combo......perfect for olive skin!

My all time favorite lipstick! since i always wear dramatic eyeliner and mascara I am always in search of a nudish lipstick. This is a shimmery champagne color with a hint of pink and i apply it atop of my lips after covering them with a bit of concealer. I love the color and the creamy formula!
This looks like an orangey frosty mess by itself. It's very drying and applies unevenly...
With any gloss (I use Physicians Formula clear plumping gloss) over it, it is HEAVENLY! You must must wear a gloss over this. Trust me, it'll look 10x better than the lipstick by itself. Since I've discovered this secret, this is one of my every day lip colors. It's pink/nude enough for everyday wear but not matte so it has a nice sheen to it too.
to wear this lipstick, you NEED to apply a clear gloss on top to neutralize the frost. then it turns into the most gorgeous muted peachy pink. I like it, only when worn this way
Looked a little "too much" by itself on my fair complexion (frosty). But I Love, Love, Love this underneath and/or mixed with my boring, flat pink lipsticks. This just gives them that extra oomph! Now it's hard for me to wear my pink, nude, and peach lipsticks without a touch of Sandy B.
I will continue to buy this lipstick to add that extra something that most of my other lipsticks lack. It is very enhancing when mixed with other lipsticks
This looks fabulous between the Smashbox Doubletake Gossamer stick. Line with the Gossamer liner, add Sandy B, then apply a bit of the Gossamer lip color to make it a little more matte and subtle. Looks like Audrey Hepburn's lips when you are finished. Worth the 3 steps for me as I cannot find the perfect one step peachy pink shade- but this is it with a tiny bit of effort and two products (the Gossamer Doubletake stick has a liner and lipstick in one pencil and is too light and boring on it's own). Added plus- my lipstick stays on for hours because of the layering process.
