Since I already have soo many bright pinks, including Girl About Town, I persuaded myself that I didn't "need" Lickable, also.
My compromise was to make myself wait until I could get Lickable through the Back to MAC program.
Well, not only was Lickable worth the wait, it is not like any other pink I own.
Lickable is very blue-based and it's bright, make no mistake about that!
However, at least on my moderately pigmented lips, against my NW15 complexion, Lickable is a very *deep* pink, as opposed to an almost neon pink, like Show Orchid or Impassioned. Compared to Girl About Town, Lickable is slightly less intense, and maybe the tiiiniest bit more blue. As another reviewer mentioned, Extra Amps Dazzleglass is *gorgeous* over Lickable. Lickable is one of those shades that instantly brightens your face, making you look younger, more alert, and healthy.
Because Lickable is of the Cremesheen formula, it glides on effortlessly, provides opaque coverage, and feels moist and light on the lips.
Though I got Lickable free this time, I would gladly buy it next time.

P.S. I like Beet pencil liner with Lickable. I imagine Cranapple Cremestick would work, as well.
NOTE: Since I obtained Trimmed in Pink pencil, that has become my liner of choice to pair with Lickable. However, don't try this combination at home unless you're prepared for some *serious* PIIIIIIIIIINK. Personally, I love it for summer.
