Somehow I was expecting Sandy B to be a paler shade of pink. In reality, it's a mid-toned pink, about the same darkness as my natural lip. In fact, I had trouble getting the color to show up on me--all I got was a ton of gold frost (even if I didn't put much) with no actual pink/peach color pay-off.
It looked terrible! It looked like I tried to put some gold-toned eyeshadow on my lips and call it lipstick. Way too frosty, even for a frost shade, and not flattering on me at all. It looked very streaky and uneven on my lips. If it were more opaque and less frosty, it might make a nice MLBB shade but, as it is, I'm definitely not a fan. I like MAC's Plink! lipstick much better.
it is very frosty, but i found that to be ok, bc its not white frosty, but it has a lovely golden frost to it. im a pale asian, with a cool undertone.. i think.. and this looks lovely, almost has a nude look, but the golden glow creates glamor to this lipstick. it looks pink, but goes on pretty peachy golden. although i love this colour, i dont think i will buy it again... im getting sick of the mac l/s smell. Oh, and i found that you dont need to put on extra lipliner or gloss.
This lipstick is so sexy!!! I think this is a great color for olive skinned girls! I use it for a more neutral lip. I like to line with subculture and and then use gigglefest lip gloss.
I really don't like this lipstick,it make my lips look very dry and chapped and is way to frosty.
I can't believe I've never tried this ls before. It looks just like Orgasm lg but in lipstick form. Because it's a frost, you definitely need to have soft, chap-free lips. It's beautiful alone or with a gloss over it (NARS Orgasm or MAC Nymphette). Sigh...another nude, pinky, peachy lippie to add to my growing collection of light lipsticks and glosses.
I love this lipstick! It's a beautiful frosty light peach/pink color! I adore it. I put a little gloss on top of it and it's perfect.
This is a pale peach color on me, kind of like a nude peach. It is pretty frosty, though.
EDIT: I have taken off two lippies because this lipstick is too frosty for me. Lollipop Lovin' is Sandy B without all the frost. I prefer that one.
This is indeed a very frosty light pink/peach lipstick ( more pink than peach on me). If you take the frostiness out, it would make a nice nude, but I suppose it is meant to compliment a different look. I think it can look kind of 80s and tacky if you won't pay attention to the rest of your makeup-I would say that subtle peachy/bronzey eyeshadow and bronzer is the best option-nothing too harsh or too colourful! It looks good on me now that I am tanned ( NC 25/30) but I am almost certain that I could not make it work during wintertime when I am really fair ( NC 15/20). Overall, it is a nice addition, but nothing spectacular or a must-have.
Sandy B. is a frosty/metallic peachy-pink. On me (NW15) it looks good with Dervish l/l underneath. The color is very pretty but there is one big drawback with this l/s that I've noticed - your lips must be perfectly smooth and moisturized to wear this. If not, every single little flake and dry spot will be magnified 100x over because of the metallic/frosty finish.
Hate it. I have medium-toned, yellow-gold-undertoned skin. Sandy B is a peachy-champange frost lipstick that makes my skintone look dirty. The overall look was "cheap 1980s asian chick". I can't explain it better than that. I think it'd look best on someone fairer or with pinky/peach undertoned skin. Oh, and did I mention it has almost no moisturising effect? It's incredibly drying!
