I had been looking for a pale pink for a while. I also picked this up because I read that Kim K uses it and I always admired her lipcolor. Well I was not disappointed. The color is a pale pink with the littlest bit of golden shimmer to it. It's not really frosty at all, but the shimmer adds a bit of reflection. The pigmentation is better than with the Lustre line of lipsticks and wears well also. I love this with VGVII SE applied over it, makes for the perfect true pale pink mouth, with some oomph. For reference my skintone is NC25 and I have pigmented lips.
I am probably the millionth person to copy Kim K's look, but her makeup is marvelous...I put this on and then top it with NARS Turkish Delight... it's a beautiful combination! I do see the frost, it's not a whole lot of color on my lips, but combined with the lipgloss it's the perfect pink lip look..I will definately continue to use this.
The colour of this lipstick is quite nice (i find it looks ten times better with a pink lipgloss over it, like napoleon perdis chandelier shine in cupi doll) , but i hate how it drys my lips out, and if they are cracked it makes them look ten times worse. Also, it doesn't last very long. I love the mac range, especially its lipglasses, but i can't say much for its lipsticks. Definitely not worth the $35 australian i paid for it.
Fresh and soft pink... it's a lipstick that can carry you through all seasons.... what's not to love?!
I also bought this because I learnt that it was Kim K's lipstick and I really like her light pink/nude look on lips. In the tube it looks really pink, but when you put it on it is much more subtle. I also wear the Turkish Delight NARS lipgloss over it, and it is very sexy looking.
I love the MAC packaging! This is a gorgeous lipstick that on my NW20 self looks fairly subtle in a complimentary way but on my NC40 friend looks absolutely amazing and bright pink! This is pretty drying and i recommend doing a sugar lip scrub before hand as it dosnt go well with any flakies. But overall i love the colour and its versatility. One thing that is weird in a good way is that its a frost but isnt frosty!
Love this! I bought it after reading that Kim K. used it. Perfect color. Really nice with the Nars Turkish Delight lipgloss over it.
I'm undecided on this lipstick. I don't like how it looks without any lipgloss. It's very flat and looks out of place on my lips. However, when I put a lip gloss over it, it looks really good. It's a little too light pink for my taste, but mixing it or adding a lip gloss really helps. It's not something that I would buy again, but it's not a total waste of money because I'm still able to use it.
Urgh I hate this lipstick! It leaves a mess on my lips and dries them out!!!! I never wrote such a bad review about anything I bought, but this one screams for one!! The color is urgh, the texture is urgh, I hate it.
Don't know about other lipsticks from MAC but if they alle dry my lips out like that, I don't want to buy more!
Yesterday I bought color surge butter from CLinique and what a difference!!!!
It's a nice neutral nude baby pink color, than looks best combined with a light pink lipgloss on top. I wear MAC Slicked Pink Lipgelee or MAC Prrr lipglass on top of this. Alone it looks a bit boring, and it has a tendency to dry out my lips. A good alternative to MAC 15 Minutes lipstick which I love, but was sadly LE. I don't find this lipstick looks frosty on me at all.
