I like the color a lot and it feels very comfortable on the lips but what's with the smell..? It fades a bit during wear but when I first applied it, it was so strong and I could smell it when I wore it and it's definitely not something I like in a lipstick. I'm not even sure how to describe it, kind of fruity and sweet I guess? I hope it fades with time so I can use it cause other than that I do like the product and the packiging is very nice for a drugstore lipstick.

Love this nude! It's a great shade for my skin tone. A lot of nude lipsticks give me that "corpse" look, not this one. It feels like a really 90's throwback for me. I wear it with the Milani lip liner in "04 - all natural". Perfect match. Creamy and smooth, great pigmentation. Long wearing.

this matte lipstick has wonderful feeling on lips. on application it glides really easily.
on my lips, it gives nude brown 90's style. i would recommend this to those whose looking for brown nude color with cheap tags. cant go wrong with it.

I love the look of the tube and it's not bad for $6, but it just looks bad on me. I have really pigmented lips and dislike wearing anything lighter than my natural lip color and this is considerably lighter than my natural lips and it makes me look washed out. The formula is weird too. No matter what I do to my lips beforehand, it chaps my lips so bad and makes them look all flaky. I'm going to go ahead and try another Milani lipstick in a different shade and see if I like it any better.

On my NC45 skintone, this lippie is OK,. Although it is highly pigmented, it appears more pink than a nude, which i do not like! It's nit a bad shade, but i wish Milani could have came out with nudes that have more beige with a yellow undertone, and Teddy bare is too chicolate for my taste. Will not repurchase!

This is the perfect nude lipstick for my coloring, Fair to Medium/cool, and it's taken forever and a day for me to discover it. My go to lip colors are usually brights, reds, or deeps. Getting a bit older now those colors just don't work for me as they used to.

Looks very pretty on! Packaging is decent for a drugstore purchase. The lipstick has a candyish scent and taste which disappears quickly. The color initially reads warmish nude/peachy pink with a nice sheen. Doesn't try out the lips and surprisingly, it has staying power. Once it wears off a bit the sheen fades to a nice matte and the color reads a more pinkish tone. YAY for a pinkish nude matte lippie! I'm very impressed with my first Milani purchase.

Oh, how I hate this lipstick! It took me forever to decide whether to buy it or not; the color isn't available locally so I had to order it online, so I was relying on pictures of it on other people, pictures of swatches, etc. It looked a LOT more pinky in pictures, and even the color label on the end of the tube looks pinky. This color looks anything but pinky-nude on me. It kind of looks white, almost chalky! I have fair-to-medium skin, medium blonde hair, cool undertones...and this lipstick looks horrible on me. Add to that, it seems to love to gravitate towards any hint of dryness on my lips and accentuate that. It has no sheen whatsoever to sort of off-put the fact that it looks like flat, white-ish, muddish wallpaint on my lips. And the stink! Whomever on here described it as "old lady" or 1980's perfume or Elnett hairspray had it exactly RIGHT. And unfortunately, I hate those fragrances. You can actually smell this the minute you open the tube, before you even raise it to your lips. And yes, an hour later, I'm still smelling it. I actually am about to wipe it off, after I finish writing this.
I'm sure this color (and fragrance) works for some people, but it looks like death on me.

Great lipstick - I bought this in Nude Creme. Very moisturizing and great color pay off. Like others, I have noticed a slightly artificial watermelon smell which may bother some but it isn't revolting as some other lipstick scents go. Think Lip Smacker's /BonneBell. It left a nice stain and never dried out my lips. It retails for 6.99 in Canada but I would gladly pay more for such an incredible product. Try it out! You won't regret it

First of all, the packaging is beautiful! I love it. Secondly, I don't use this as a standalone nude lipstick. My lips are too pigmented and it just ends up looking like I'm dead if I wear it by itself. I use this as a base for other lipsticks. It's creamy, pigmented and smells delicious. I layer other lipsticks over it, since most tend to drastically change colors on me. This product keeps them looking true to the color in the tube, which I love. My favorite way to wear this is with L'oreal Colour Riche in Everbloom over top, with a bit of Avon Ultra Glazewear gloss in Candy Pink on top of that. The result is perfect for me. I also love layering MAC Lovelorn. Will forever rebuy this 💕

Finally, I have my HG nude lipstick after trying so many. Nude Creme is a beautiful pinky caramel shade which is just inside my nude lip "comfort zone" meaning it doesn't erase my lips, but gives them a nice toned down color for those big ass eye makeup days.

I'm up to two primers, illuminator, three eyeliners, six shadows, two mascaras and falsies on those days, I can barely lift up my head, lol. Anyway, there's no nasty department store basement smell, all noxious perfume and plastic, which I disliked in Rimmel's Naked Frolic (Let's Get Naked? Naked Panic?). I gave that one to my pregnant sister-in-law, forgetting, you know? How pregnant ladies are like all nose? She opened it up and nearly barfed, but said she is keeping the lipstick for the post baby job search.

The formula is super creamy and thick but not in the way that it feels like frosting on a cupcake. Or rather, it does feel that way but you don't want to lick it off. Very awesome formula.

Thank you Ms Milani, where ever you are!
