I just bought this lippie from Mac, and I am so glad I did! It is a pinky-peach on me, and looks great against my skintone(Stila 60 watts). I used it with Sweet as Cocoa blush and all that glitters eyeshadow for a nice, natural look for work. I will repurchase this again.
This is my second favorite lip color from MAC. It's a peachy color with gold flecks throughout. This looks amazing with a tan and is great for the summer but it also wors in the winter when my other colors become too dark for my skin tone. I highly recommend this if you're into the peachy colors or if you like shimmer in your lipstick.
This is a bright coral peach with glitter. Surprizingly, this looks good on my cool skintone. It wears well in the summer months, without looking scary or tacky.
The color of this lipstick is a medium coral-peach with the tiniest bit of gold iridescence, which looks ok but not amazing on my tan skin LOL. It's supposed to be a frost, but I hate its texture as it's really creamy, too sheer and not frosty. It's like if it was a sheer amplified creme lipstick trying to look frost. I actually love MAC frost lipsticks when they're FROST, I like them dry and drying, yeah, and with a matte yet frosty, very frosty opaque metallic texture. As much as I adore MAC and MAC lipstick, I hate a lot how some of MAC frost lipsticks are too sheer and creamy and not too frosty neither metallic or opaque. I don't mind a drying lipstick if it looks good. I hate that about this lipstick, the color is ok but nothing great, lasting power is bad=(
I ask my SA for the lipstick version of Nymphette and got Sandy B. Overall, a pretty peachy-pink-gold, but based on reviews, I expected something a little brighter. I think I have more of a problem with the frost formula than the color though, as I find many of MAC's frosts overly frosty. I definitely need to wear gloss on top. I prefer lustres and glazes, but if you're a frost-lover, this will flatter. MAC/Lauder Group does not test on animals.
At first, this shade seemed perfect for me. The peach was nice and didn't wash me out, and the glitters weren't that bothersome. However, I eventually found this a bit drying on me. So I just swapped it away. Not very fond of the frost formula.
I am NC 30, asian skin with very pigmented, berry coloured lips. I loveeee this lipstick because it really helps tone down my lipcolour to a faint pink. Yes, sometimes the frost emphasizes by dry lips but a bit of vaseline at night does the trick. I do love the light "shell-pink" as described my Mac, and the fact that I can always get one free from the Back2Mac Program. I'm on my 6th tube now...definitely my HG!
Got this with a B2M. It's a very pretty color. It's a bit light on me, since I'm already light with fairly pigmented lips. I agree with previous posters that this color would have been better if it weren't a Frost. In general, I don't mind frosts but I'm finding the lustre formula a little nicer. With this color, it peels a bit and my lips flake a bit (which is why I can't give it five stars). It looks great under Love Nectar lustreglass. I think you'd still be able to get away with this color even in fall and winter, but yes it is much more suited for spring/summer.
If I could, I would give this 10 lipsters!!! I don't know why it took me so long to find this lipstick at the MAC counter (Lord knows I'm there often enough), but I'm glad I finally did. I didn't buy this right away... oh, no. I swatched it on the back of my hand and thought, "Wow! NICE~ but, you don't need another lipstick-- WALK AWAY!" And I did.Happened to find myself in another mall later that week, and there was the MAC counter... calling to me again. Wanted to check out the New Weed Fluidliner, anyway. Wasn't there earlier that week in the other mall I was in. I approached the counter and asked for the New Weed, and "Sandy B." and "Ciao, Manhattan" also popped out of my mouth all in the same sentence! (Dang, there goes the rest of my spending money for the week!) Couldn't wait to apply Sandy B! I did as soon as I got home... and I LOVED it on me! Put a little "Ciao, Manhattan" LipGlass over it and POW! Nice combo! :o) Me likey! Hubby likey, too! Complimented me both days in a row that I wore it! My daughter also said, "Mommy, you look soooo pretty today!"I know it was the Sandy B that earned me those compliments. Thanks, MAC... and thank you, Sandy B!!! I hope MAC never stops making you! continued >>
I got this from MAC's Back2MAC program. It's a lovely peachy/pink colour - exactly the shades I usually choose of lipglosses. The shade matches well with my skintone (Asian C4). The only qualms I have about this are first that the frost formula. The colour seems to sit on my lips rather than look like my lips are that colour. It's too obvious. Next, the peachy colour can be a bit too much sometimes and can make me look dead. I find that Whirl is a great lipliner to give it more oomph.
