I just bought this and i'm wearing it. I told the girl at mac I wanted a frosty grey colour. She gave me this. I bought it, not knowing it's a glaze, because I dislike glaze lipsticks (frosts are my favorites). But I like it, very moisturizing and gives a frosty grey colour on my pigmented lips. I'm surprised to read all the negative reviews for this one.

IMO, it is just a very outdated color...very late 90's when people were trying to leave the dark browns lippies of the early 90's behind them and went into uber frosty mode. I am sure, as with all lipsticks, someone could make this look good for a "look" they were trying to achieve. But especially on my NW20 skin this is the anti-perfect lipstick for me. Everything I hate in a lipstick...this color is: Frosty, icy, very dated...not good. Out of all the Glazes, this one is in the bottom two. If you like the Glaze finish, check out some of the other shades.

This is an OK lipstick by MAC...Its best described as a pale, light brown with beige frost undertones. Its considered a "glaze" by MAC, however it seems more like a frost to me. I do wear it by itself at times however it usually looks best layered with other glosses and provides a great base for that purpose.
I wish I reached for it more often as I would probably re-buy if I was out of it.

The only pros are pros of all the other MAC l/s... gorgeous vanilla scent, chic packaging etc...
However this is the least pigmented l/s I have ever tried! When I put it on it looks like a sprinkle of gold glitter on my lips settling into the cracks - it makes me look really washed out..
I don't really see how this would suit any skin colour! (For ref, I am NC20) It's just a "nothing" colour...

i love this one. im really into taupe/greyish lips with a true brown liner lately and this is such a good topping to my liplook for some extra, sexy, interesting sheen.
it's a glaze but it adds a nice silvery (not scary) shine...such an interesting pop of color.
btw, it's pronounced: FROH-OO

Frou is not for everyone, but on the right coloring it is fabulous. I never understood the appeal of this lipstick until I saw it on someone with coloring like mine. For reference, I am LLL w/ warm undertones, dark hair, brown eyes & pigmented pink lips. When I finally tried it, I was skeptical (ugly in the tube, ugly when swatched), but when I put it on it was love! Frou tones down the pinkness of my lips and turns them a pearly light nude. I actually really like that it's not super glossy-- it makes it look more natural and last longer. It's surprisingly wearable and versatile. In fact, it's probably the best "My Lips But Better" shade I've ever tried. I can totally see now why it's part of the perm. collection, but I can also see why so many people hate it! It's one of those colors you just have to try for yourself.

I'm surprised people don't like this more.
This is my go-to lipstick for when I want a nude that's a little bit more dressed-up and un-boring. I hope it doesn't get discontinued because while I wouldn't wear this every day, I would miss not having it.
Also, how do you pronounce "frou"? Is it like the German "Frau" (rhymes with "brow") or the French "frou-frou" (rhymes with "tutu")? If someone knows, please tell me, I'd much appreciate. :)

I used to wear this a lot in the 90's - so much that I bought a second tube. But I never wear it now - it is just too frosty for me, which makes my lips look dry, It also makes them sort of disappear (in the 90's I wore it with mega-liner in Spice of course!)

My first MAC lipstick and I love it!
MAC describes this as a soft muted beige with silver shimmer (Glaze).
By itself, it is probably WAY too light it will wash you out no matter what your skintone.
Layered on top of something else, it is amazing!
I usually wear it on my bottom lips on top of another nude lipstick, and it makes both my lips and hazel eyes stand out. A must for any smokey eye look!
Would repurchase again!

Frou is a very bland sheer pale brown with silver shimmer, very 90's. Not sure why this color is still around and the better ones get discontinued.

Like it, don't love it. It's just too pale for me. Still gave it a 4 because it's a pretty color, just not for me. :-)

Too pale for me. Frou is a pale, sheer light beige-touched-with-gray with silver frost on me...it looks very similar to CG wetslicks gloss in “Shimmershell”. When I was in my pale lips phase I’m sure I would have *loved* Frou which is why I can't give it a bad rating on color. I’ve moved on and am after a different look, so I’ll pass. I'm a fan of MAC's lipsticks (except the lustres) so no complaints on the formula at all. No repurchase. Nw15-20, light green eyes, pigmented lips, blondish/brown hair.

This is probably my favorite lipstick ever. I am PPP. It's a bit light, yes, but sometimes I wear explicit lipglass over it and I just LOVE it. I will be distraught if this is ever discontinued. I always wear a heavy eye and this is just what I am looking for in terms of lips. love love love my frou

I really love this beigy/silver-y color. It's pretty sheer and has a ton of frost in it-which I LOVE! I wear this when I want something neutral to wear with a smokey eye look. Love this color!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Sensitive, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I wore the heck outta this in the late 90's. This and relic and isis were my fave's. It is a great shell neutral frost.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Blue
i love this color! it's a great light beigy peach lip color with just the right amount of shimmer. i have naturally very red lips so colors never look as light on me as they do in the tube, but this did the trick! perfect with a smoky eye. a little on the warm side so it might not go well with purples on the eye. also, the tube broke, which sucked, but overall, it's a great color and product.

I used to love this in high school! It was like the IT l/s. Now Its just to light and frosty for me. Every once and a while I will reach for it to highlight the center of my bottom lip or to lighten a darker l/s but thats about it.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair, Cool Hair: Blond, Straight, Fine Eyes: Blue
Frou is a silvery taupe color on me. I'm on the fence with this color because some days I hate it and some days I like it. I am NW20/LLL. I wear this with my Styli Style Satin Honey lipliner. Seems a little drying. Overall, not a bad color, but it's nothing special at all. When I run out, which will take me a while, I don't think I will repurchase.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Medium Brown, Warm Hair: Black, Curly, Medium Eyes: Brown
I'm a MAC NC35 w/dark hair and eyes. Frou is very frosty, gold and silvery...too frosty. However, put on top of a dark brown lip pencil or lip stick with MAC Shockolate lipglass on top and it looks stunning!
