"Japanese Maple" is clean beige. It enhances my lips and does not make yellowish undertone appear.

My favorite nude lipstick shade. I am pretty pale with dark hair, eyes and eyebrows, so a lot of nude lipsticks look like ridiculous concealer on me. Not this one. It's the perfect shade of pinkish-nude and has a creamy texture, not dry or chalky like some other nudes. I have gone through a few of these already, will keep buying it forever!

***i was afraid it would be too dark for my fair skin (nw15), but it looks so good! It's my perfect nude. I have been wearing it everyday! I don't mind having to reapply after a few hours, but some people might. It last a good amount of time in my opinion. I absolutely love this lipstick!

I have been searching for a nude forever...they always make me look dead or stuck in the 90's...but this is beyond perfect! I tried creme cup because everyone raves about if, but on my medium-tan skin tone it reads pink/ashy...not with this color. Perfect neutral, looks great for everyday and a dramatic eye look, will be using everyday!!

I purchased this product because I needed a muted nude lipstick with was not too thick (as MAC Myth is) or so unflattering. I wanted a neutral base, not too pink and not too yellow. This lipstick really does it. It is soft to apply, semi-sheer coverage and stays put.
The problem is that it's not long lasting and after 3-4 hours you need to reapply it. After this hours it's like the hydrating base of the lisptick just had reabsorbed and you can see the tiny little shimmer on your lips, surprisingly.
All in all, this is a beautiful lipstick, excellent for smokey eyes. I only wish it were more long lasting and with a texture similar to MAC Angel lipstick.

Japanese Maple is a Cremesheen + Pearl finish from MAC. I love the Cremesheens & the Cremesheen + Pearl"ones are really nice too. Japanese Maple is a pearly light beige shade. It is a beautiful muted lip. Whether this will skew peachy or pink in your opinion I think will depend on your lip and skin tone. I love this for a beautiful neutral muted lip (but not dead concealer lips) on my NW20 skin, rosey brown lips, almost black hair, brown eyes. I also have this finish in Peach Blossom and that is gorgeous as well. Japanese Maple really slid in under the radar, but it is my favorite "nude" lipstick now. And come summer, I am probably going to fly through this when my makeup goes more peachy / bronze.
