Was I the only one not impressed with this? It looks like such a gorgeous color. When i was at the MAC counter, I rubbed a little on my hand and it looked way too pretty not to buy. I guess I thought it would be a little more opaque. This is really sheer.. I have to dab concealer on my lips before I apply this to get the true light pinky/frosty/coral.. On pigmented lips the color pulls more golden coral. I like it, but I don't think I'd repurchase.
I love this color! I think the other reviewers summed up the color quite well, light peachy pink with gold frost, very beautiful. My only gripe with this lipstick is that it can be drying; I wore it to work one day, and after my lunch break, my lips looked a dry,flaky, frosted gold mess. I definitely think this should be applied to well moisturized lips. Other than the dry factor, I think this is a lovely shade, one of my favorite MAC shades, and I would definitely purchase when I run out.
Got it as B2M w/a help of a lovely lady, I love this frosty light peachy pink colour (golden frost), love the vanilla scent and the packaging, but it's SOO drying that I have to be careful when I put it on my lips (just on the "good" days). The good part is that it's my "slick-on and go" lippie.
Like a lot of other reviewers, I chose Sandy B. as my B2M lippie. I wanted one that I could kind of have kicking around in my purse that I could throw on without being too careful. On me, Sandy B. is a frosty pink with a little peachy tone that I think keeps me from looking like a Barbie doll. I use it under Mark Glow Baby Glow gloss in Pink Crush, or sometimes even Vaseline to give it some shine. If you don't put something either over or under it, it will really dry out your lips. I took off a lippie for this reason.
I got this as a B2M lippie.I heard raves about it on the mu board from krakow and many others,so I finally caved.It's beautiful!A very,very light peachy pink,heavy on the gold frost.This lippie will be considered too frosty on it's own for some ppl's taste,but I like it.It looks amazing under Love Nectar lustreglass,but I prefer to just slick a clear gloss over it for shine.Looks great with a tan/bronzer.Would repurchase.
I love it...i tried lots of colors at MAC counter...Was not sure which color to get..cause' my lips were so dry..everytime i try it on, they look ugly..
But i was thinking to get one anyways because it's FREE using back to mac ..
I was so not sure when i tried all the colors so i just pick one that i feel i like the best...
it ended up looking really nice on my lips when i get to try it on at home...
I first applied some lip conditioner (burt's bee's) that makes my lips look smooth and then i applied Sandy B......it looks awesome...i have dark lips compares to a NC 25 person has....it really tone down my lips to a lighter ones...the shimmer in it makes my lips look shine....not too shine..but just enough to brighten my lips a bit...this color is good for summer because of the shimmer.....it looks organy at the counter..but when i open it , it matches my lips and a bit pink...
Good for ppl who have NC 25 tone...and for those who have medium dark lips...
it really tones ur lips to a lighter pinker color...make sure u try it after u apply conditioner at the counter....
glad i tried this at the mac counter first. i'm an nc25. black hair/dark brown eyes. i was excited to try this infamous color...sadly it just washed me out and made me look sick. fyi..my lips are a little pigmented.
Washed me out. Pretty in the tube though.
The description sounded better than the real colour. Mac: good quality; but I didn't like the colour at all, too frosty , ending looking like a very cheap lipstick on my lips. Yuck.
i love love love this colour, the gold flecks are simply the best and this lipstick looks good on everyone! this is my staple lippy and i love pulling out the bullet shaped case to apply! one gripe only is that the formula isnt as moisturizing as i would like however i am in roaccutane at the moment so my lips are unusually dry, so i dont think i will have this problem once i get off the medication.
EDIT: my boyfriend goes mad for the smell of this lippy! the colour is a sex kitten shimmery pink that looks great on everyone and i dont find it drying anymore either
