This is a medium pinky-brown with subtle undertones of brown and golden. The pigmentation is excellent and lasts a very long time on the lips. Not too dark, not too light---it just makes me look put together. I'm a redhead and this is a great everyday shade for me. This lipstick feels and looks more expensive than it is. The texture is a thick cream that can feel a bit heavy or sticky if you aren't used to it. The only qualm I have is the smell. It smells like dirt or clay. I cough for the first few minutes after I put this on! Very strange. But otherwise excellent quality for a low price.
I love this lipstick. It's pretty moisturizing and lasts all day unlike other lipstick which fades so quickly and leaves terrible lipstick mark on the edge of my lips. This lipstick stays !
Lovely mauve (pink/brown) in the tube. Of course on my pigmented lips it turns a bright reddish mauve (like all other lippies). I suppose it's a MLBB shade, but it's not muted enough for my conservative taste. $5.04 at Target.
I'm giving it four lippies, just because I think the color itself would look gorgeous on other skin tones and I like the CS formula. This color sadly washes me out and doesn't give my lips any definition at all. I was hoping for more of a caramel toffee as shown in the photos, but this pulls a mauve-toned brown nude on me; quite unflattering for NC20/25. It's a pretty nude shade, but in no way on me.
I actually don't know how to describe this color. It IS natural/nude-ish, it IS sort of brown-y, but there's also a warm, pink-ish undertone. It's very, very similar to my natural lip color but it does give my lips somewhat more 'omph' by adding extra pigmentation and evening out the color. I can easily see this lipstick being used every day, especially during the fall.
My suggestion to anyone new to this particular lipstick is to wear it lightly for a lovely, pink-nude-brown finish because it will pull NOTICEABLY brown if you apply it thickly.
Overall, it's a great "my lips but better" color. It's quickly becoming one of my go-to colors for when I go to work! (ALSO, it is a very close dupe of Mac Hug Me and is the same finish, too!)
Hmmm, on me this shade is MLB...NOT...B? It has just enough brown to make me look washed out. A touch more pink and it would have worked with my complexion.
Overall, this is probably one of my favorite lipsticks. I usually wear the long wearing or glosses but in the winter I like a regular tube lipstick. Usually I find they wear off on me rather quickly, this one being no exception, but I like this enough that it isn't a problem for me with more frequent application. This is a perfect light brown neutral for me. I'm rather fair but on darker skin tones this would be a great nude color. On me it's a natural color that gives me a great finished and polished look. I like everything about it, the way it feels, looks, and applies. It doesn't bleed on me either the way most tube lipsticks do. I definitely will buy again.
This is a really natural looking color. Very work appropriate and kind of fool proof in that it would match up well with either a warm or cool eye/face look. It sort of reminds me of a Jennifer Aniston look as she usually wears a neutral nude shade. I find the formula to be a little too sheer for my taste though. In general, I just prefer creams and this one is more of a sheer, slightly frosty consistency. I'm also not very fond of the packaging on the CS line in general. The cap is too clunky and it seems sort of oversized, like they could have eliminated a lot of the plastic and made the cap smaller.Overall a nice color, but not my favorite formula.
I am shocked that I am reviewing a "drug store lipstick", lol but this is pretty darn good stuff ladies. First of all lets's talk price, I got my tube for $4.50 and it seriously reminds me of the Christian Dior Addict range I normally buy, both, packaging, and product. The big difference is CD is roughly $30.00 a tube, however a tad more moisturizing. Most lipsticks only accentuate my issue with dry lips, so I have pretty much stuck to Chanel and CD lipstick for this reason. I smeared this on expecting to rub it off in no time due to flakey lips, but much to my surprise my lipstick still looks creamy. As far as the color, I wanted it to look exactly like the lovely pictures posted above, (simply stunning on them) however on me shows up a fleshy-pinky-brown, which is still a nice color on my NC20 skin tone, just a hint different than I hoped. I am overall really impressed with this line and do plan on trying out a few more colors. There were so many beautiful colors to choose from and a price that can't be beat!
What more can I say about this product that hasn't been said already?
I've recently started buying drugstore makeup and is quite pleased with this little gem! Was watching a youtube video and the girl with the same coloring as me (NC30) Korean girl said this Maybelline Nude Blush was her favorite color. By the time I discovered it, this color is discontinued and based on Maybelline's website Totally Toffee is replacing the Nude Blush.
I really love the moisture to this lipstick and it's one of those lipstick you can reach for while driving and put it on without worrying about it going out of line!
I have told some of my friends to run out and get this l/s who have the same coloring as I do!
