I love this shade! I got it in MAC's s/s 2012 collection! Its a beautiful soft coral & is great for everyday wear. I love that it's not sticky, its also has a gorgeous vanilla smell to it, would highly recommend this!

This is such a natural and beautiful color I could wear it every day. it really brightens up my face. it is a soft coral - meaning it is not bright or garish - but very natural. It's as close to a "nude" lippie I can go. I am NC 15 to 20 with brown hair and it works very well with my coloring. I also love the texture - it applies smoothly and evenly, does not highlight dry spots, and in fact is very moisturizing. if my lips are dry and looking bad, I can put this on and they look luscious! I also find the staying power quite good. it lasts until I eat (for several hours). A++ product and too bad it is limited edition :-(

I love the texture of the kissable lipcolors, and I love how it moisturizes my lips as well! The texture was in between a lipgloss and a lipstick, not too drying and not too shiny/glossy. However, the staying power is not good at all. I felt like it was gone in an hour! The color is beautiful though if you want to achieve more of a coral, pinky lip.

Last year I was looking for a coral color and this would have fit the bill nicely. Unfortunatly when I purchased this, I was looking for something more natural and as mentioned before this has obvious orange undertones which look somewhat silly in the winter. I am going to save it for the summer.

the long lasting lipgloss idea for me sounded better in theory than it actually came to be in reality.

If I want a lipstick, I will just get a lipstick and same for a gloss this trying to be both kinda fell short on both sides. Not as much control in application as a lipstick, and not as shiny as a gloss

I bought this online on a whim but I probably should've just went to the mall and looked at the color in person because I probably would've bought Woo Me instead of So Vain. This color is darker than I usually like my lips to be- I always wear light nude lipcolor and this is more of a medium-toned warm pink/coral color. The orange tones can make teeth look yellower because blue-based lip color makes teeth look whiter and this would be the opposite. I wouldn't wear it alone but it looks okay under light-colored nude gloss. The formula can accentuate dryness or lip lines so I would definitely recommend layering this under a gloss anyway. It tastes really good and lasts pretty long, so I would still give this 3 lippies. I just wish I bought Woo Me instead.

Beautiful coral colour that isn't garish. Goes on like a dream and stays. The texture and colour are lovely. I wish these were core.

Its a beautiful peachy color, but there are quite a couple of flaws I find in this gloss: 1. Can accentuate lip cracks/lines 2. On my skintone, it has a strange neon orange undertone. It looks great as a spring/summer lipgloss, but not for me - wayy too bright and orange. I am between an NC 35-37 right now btw.
