So, I wouldn't buy this again, but it does the job okay. I just like to try to new things...often. It's a nice way for me to tone down my lip color which, I think, is pretty dark for my skin. It is a little frosty, but I don't think it's terribly sparkly, or unnatural. I'd compare it too Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in Champagne, again though, with less sparkle.
I recently got this product for free from a family friend who works for Estee Lauder, and when I opened up the package, I was a little weary. The colour looked way too light for even me (NW20). But, since I LOVE MAC lipsticks, I decided to try it. My natural lip colour is extremely dark, so I'm always looking for products that are more opaque to cover the darkness of my lips. However, this colour is very sheer, but lightens my lips just enough to have all my lip glosses' colours shine through. Also, I find that when I wear this alone, it gives my lips a pretty sheen, but not over-powering. Overall, I would definitely purchase this product again! One of my FAVOURITE lipsticks to date. :)
Urgh. I really hate MAC's lustre l/s. They just look way too sheer on me. The colour is ok, but it is quite frosty. This is good if you want something inbetween a gloss and a l/s but otherwise steer clear. this l/s punished me for impulse buying!!!
I love this lipstick. I adore most MAC products in general but had never been that big on wearing lipstick. This was my first lipstick purchase and I have to say, to this day, it is still my favorite lipstick. It's a lustre so it's sheer enough to be worn alone for just a little shimmer and it's buildable for a perfect pale nude pink color. It has enough shine/shimmer to be worn or you can put a lipgloss over top. I have very pigmented lips that I like to lighten with lip products. It feels thin enough on my lips but can be built up to a thicker texture if needed/wanted. I love everything about this lipstick.
This color was just too sheer yet pale for my pigmented lips, and didnt work. I could see it looking a,azing on a lighter skin tone though.
Fail! I couldn't get this to work with my NC25 skintone in a million years. It's an incredibly pale, icy pastel pink with shimmer: All my no no's in one tube - what can I say, I was a makeup rookie back then and didn't know any better. This color seems to have traumatized me for life and caused me to shy away from pinks up until this day. When applied lightly it didn't even show up - it just added a bit of chunky shimmer to my lips and turned them slightly ashy due to its overly cool undertones and, believe me, this was the only way it looked tolerable. When applied more heavily, it was your worst nightmare. Inititally I got this thinking it would be a nice discrete pale nude, but it honestly didn't do the trick for me. I wore it a few times and got nothing but unflattering comments on it. Won't repurchase.
I kept using up my lipglasses, I needed something for the lips that would last longer than lip gloss and not run outttt!.. so I decided to invest into a lipstick! I bought this color because after trying it on, it was sheer-ish like a lipgloss.. it was the perfect nude on me because I have very non-pigmented lips and it was overall a great pale lip look! I love it! The shimmers are super subtle and pretty! I will re purchase when running out :) it is going to be my nude chapstick that won't run out like my lipglasses do!haha Lasts a decent amount of time and never settles or looks funny after a while like shifting lipsticks or lipsticks that settle into corners/lines/inside of lips! You can apply without looking because it's a lustre and you can just smack lips together to fix up!
When I first saw this at the counter. I was lil iffy on buying it. I went home and I could not stop thinking about it. So i gave in and bought it.When I say I love this lipstick...I love it. It reminds me of there lipgloss oyster girl with out the thickness feeling. It has enough gloss to even look like a l/g. But great enough for a l/s. Its a pale pink that works great for a nude type l/s. I will def repurchase this l/s.
I really love this lipstick! It is a lustre, so it's pretty sheer, but the color is beautiful! It's a light pink, with kind of lavender undertones. I find myself reaching for the lipstick almost everyday now. You don't need a lipgloss over it like with a lot of my other mac lipsticks, because their is already so much shine. This color looks good with a smokey eye, as well as with a more natural look. I would definitely repurchase!
I am in love/not in love with this color. I wish it was more opaque to begin with and that I didn't have to excessively layer this color to get the pretty pink lip. I love the light pink-purple irredescence of this lipstick, but it is so sheer and so glittery at the same time I do not see myself wearing this on a daily basis at work without feeling like a clown. It does remind me of a less purple version of snob, but then again snob has more color payoff being a satin finish. I think this lipstick would be great if it jus had a better finish. Love the light pink color,not the almost frost finish that it gives off.
