*Teak Rose* is a creamy deep rose with mauve & brown hints to it, a non-shimmery color that can do wonders for people with cool and neutral complexions. Unfortunately, not the case with me :( This particular shade looks beautiful like a deep YLBB in the tube, but the mauve undertones come up richly upon application, at least on me. I'm very warm-toned (redhead, brown eyes, fair/light skin w/ yellow undertones) and often have this problem with lipsticks that seem to be YLBB shades (same happened with *Smokey Rose*). On the other hand, *Rosewine* turned out to be what I was expecting from *Teak Rose*, a true creamy warm rose :)
UPDATE 08/26/2009: Well, I was experimenting with this lipstick and several lipliners and finally made it work for me :) If I apply (softly) a redish-brown lipliner (I used Rimmel's 1000 Kisses in Spice) and than follow with the lipstick and blend well, the result is a beautiful earthy rose, so creamy and rich. I'm now giving it 4 points and not 5 because I can't wear it on its own, but with this trick I'm totally loving the new color, so perfect for fall/winter!
