This is the first lipglass that I have backed up - the colour is so beautiful and works for me (NC30). It polishes up my look wonderfully. I guess the lipglass nowadays have a better formulation as I don't find this sticky at all. I used to hate the older stuff which was a night mare if my hair gets anywhere near my lips!

Since i got this beautiful gloss is the only one i put on my lips!! It is so natural and pretty. the ideal lipgloss for everyday use.Its natural simple but gives the right amount of colour so you don't look like dead.nude lips are fine but when you'll get this one you' hate them.it makes me glow! it really copliments my skin.

I was a bit on the fence when buying this, I told myself there would be similar colors out there that would be a dupe for this. I caved in when I swatched it on my lips, it's a very flattering shade of coral and would look great on every skin tone I believe. I can't stop looking at it once I applied, LOL

I was really excited for this lipglass to come out because in swatches it looked so gorgeous. Im not a big fan of lipgloss im more of a lipstick girl but since i loved the swatches so much of course i bought one right when it came out! I was so anxious to try it on and when i did I was a dissappointed. I was expecting a much more pigmented corally color but on me it was pretty sheer :( im guessing my lip pigmentation is stronger than the lipgloss pigmentation. I was so sad I wish it showed up way better :(

This ligplass looks like a nice pale, pink in the tube, but applies like a bright pink on me. I wanted something similar to MAC underage, but more pink and I thought this would be perfect. I was wrong. IMHO it is very similar to VG Cyndi l/g, which looked horrible on me. I'm going to apply one more time with different liner to see if I can pull it off without looking ghastly.

Update: 10/19/2010 - Paired this with chestnut liner and it looks great! Like a peachy neutral. Almost like what Freckletone would be on me if it were a gloss. So I will be keeping. BTW I'm C7 in MAC

There was so much hype on this product, so I went to go get a tube. I really love corals and pinks. I am NC25ish for reference...asian. Anyway, this color looks wonderful. I bought two tubes since it is a limited edition product. I think it is well worth it. Perfect coral pink color and has a nice gloss to it. Perfect with smoky eyes or just everyday wear. It makes you look young and fresh. Beautiful color and I would recommend to everyone.

Sorry everybody, but I don't think this lipgloss is all that special. In the tube it is pretty unique in the way that it is kind of milky pearl, instead of the usual base color + sparkles, and in the tube it IS a really gorgeous peach. HOWEVER, once applied to my lips it looks suspiciously like a 1960s light whitish frosty peach, much too icy for my coloring. To me it looks pretty pedestrian and dupeable, and reminds me of a pre-teen's first lipgloss. I prefer a golden, pink, or even bluish iridescence to this whitish-silver glow. I am sure that this lipgloss does look spectacular on tons of people, but if you are like me, and cringe at the words "icy peach" then this color is NOT for you. One good thing about this gloss is that it does have a slightly less sticky consistency than most other lipglasses, it's almost like MAC mated a cremesheen and a lipglass and came up with this new formula, and I like it.

I bought this the day it came out and have to say I'm glad I did! It is the perfect color for me especially since I've been on the hunt for a somewhat pigmented yet neutral lipglass. I probably shouldve bought two, let's hope that MAC repromotes this color in another collection!!

I love this lipgloss !!!! in fact i bought 2 back up of this shade. It's just the perfect shade of pink/coral. This lipgloss is just sooooo pretty and work for everyday glos for me. I usually paired this with angel lipstick also by MAC and it's my everyday lip combo.

Yep I got a back up of this today!!! I normally dislike MAC lipglasses and always skip out on them in collections because I find them to be sooooo sticky and not opaque and no colour pay-off, just shimmer. But this one is decently pigmented and it's a BEAUTIFULLLL coral-pink shade unlike anything I've seen from MAC before!!! I love this colour soooo much and I think it would be flattering on all skin tones!!
