I absolutely love this shade! It looks pinky nude on my lips but more on the pink side. I love that it's moisturizing and the smell is divine! I love how this brightens up my face and I like how I do not need to add an additional lip product on top, but it already looks glossy to me. Def a repurchase!

MAC describes this as a mid tone yellow pink but looks like a coral pink in the tube. This one appears as a bright pink on me in natural light. Not super neon bright though but still an obvious pink colour to lips especially in bright daylight. It's a bit more pink and brighter than MAC's Modesty which is a bit more mauve and lighter in tone. Fanfare also has a coral undertone and can look somewhat orange under certain lighting (I suppose due to the yellow undertones in my skin). Rather pretty though and the cremesheen formula is quite moisturising and lasting. I like it and I'd buy this again.

Fanfare has fast become (in less than 1 mo.) my favorite day-, go-to-work lipstick. I generally wear a neutral smoky eye but cannot pull off a nude lip look with it, despite knowing that "the rules" say you should wear a softer lip. Whereas Creme Cup was too pale & made me feel washed out, Fanfare gives me the fresh pop of color that I look unbalanced w/o, As for its color, many reviews here have described it accurately. On my lips it runs more pink than peach; I pair it with cheapie WnW 666 liner. It feels pretty comfortable on my lips, but I do apply a moisturizing balm as a pre-prep step :) As with all l/s it needs to be reapplied after eating/drinking.

Fanfare is the most lovely MAC lipstick I've ever tried! I have a tan skintone and it matches perfectly with my skin. It's a soft, bright rose with a very light coral undertone. II think it's a perfect pink for girls with medium, tan or black skin. You can use day and night. And it lasts!! I would definitely buy it again.

Wearable light pink, not powder pink. It's similar to Hot Gossip with less of the frost. One of my favs =)

OMG, MAC's cremesheen texture is the business! I love it. As a dark and delicious sista I must say this is a medium bold lip on my NW45 skin tone. I tend to wear this with a neutral eye to spice up my look or with just mascara. I would purchase this again if I ever run out (i have many products in rotation). Good staying power too!

I've been on the hunt for an MLBB neutral-warm pink lipstick and bought both Fanfare and Hug Me. Both shades are quite lovely and both complement my medium-tan olive skin tone. Fanfare has a bit more pink to it compared to Hug Me and I have to tone it down with some beige gloss whenever I wear it during the day. Don't get me wrong though -- it's not a bright shade of pink -- I have medium pigmented lips and I find it difficult to find a neutral pink that isn't too light or too dark. Fanfare is indeed a very pretty shade, but I probably wouldn't purchase it again because I haven't used it as much as I initially expected.

I recieved three new MAC lipsticks for Christmas Speak Louder (Cremesheen), Chatterbox (Amplified Creme) and this. This one will probably be used most often as it is the most universal/subdued color. On me, this is a warm pink with neutral (and perhaps vaguely peachy) undertones. While it may seem like it would clash with my cool-toned pale skin, it warms up my face really well without being too fake or garish. I love all three of the aforementioned lipsticks and probably would repurchase, but I am always eager to try new colors so we'll see. Fanfare is an HG for me as it is almost an exact match for my discontinued fave Neutrogena's Lip Boost Lipstick in Petal. Cremesheen formula equal both soft and pigmented.
