The make up artist whom I had a consultation with recommended this color for me. It`s a lovely purply-rose, very moisturizing on my lips. The color stands out nicely against my fair skin, and it works great with strong eye make up. The only complaint I have is that it doesn`t stay put too long and needs constant reapplying. However, being so sheer it is easy to apply straight from the bullet.

Don't buy this if you are looking for anything more than a lipstick version of a nice gloss. This is exactly what I wanted, so it works though...a glossy, sheer lipstick. If you are looking for a lipstick to make a difference, this isn't the one. Sweetie is a purple tinged pink shade, sheer and glossy (lustre finish). It actually reminds me of a more sheer glossy version of Hot Gossip. It is one of those uber neutral colors like Syrup or Patisserie on me, but does provide a bit more color than those two did on me. This is not the shade to buy if you want dramatic (bright or dark) color on your lips. I have very mauvey leaning brown toned lips and Sweetie is great when I want to soften up the look. Sweetie is not MLBB, it is a bit more, but hardly a "wow" color...more of a workhorse on me. It can work with both my summer and winter looks. One of the safest, no brainer shades I own. It sounds kind of boring, but it just works when other shades over complicate things, but you want more than lip balm. I was so "eh" about it at first, I almost returned it, but then I just kept grabbing it on running out the door days for a quick polish. Next thing you know we have been together for a few months. :) FYI-I am NW20, deep soft winter, brown eyes, mauve lips.

I wanted a sheer pink lipstick, so I decided to try this lipstick out. MAC describes this as an "ultra sweet pink", whatever that means.. First, I have really pigmented lips, and I know this is a Lustre finish, but I honestly couldn't see anything on my lips, no color, no shine, no shimmer..nothing! I have a lot of MAC lipsticks that I have and love, but I was really disappointed in this shade. Unfortunately, I'm going to return this for something else.

Lovely pink, sheer shimmery shade, very natural and creamy, just wish it would stay put for longer!

I went to the nearest mac store and bought this lipstick today based off the reviews I read on here and on other sites so this was a blind buy for me but it was definitely worth it. I was looking for a lipstick that I could wear to work and school and for an everyday lipstick that wouldnt be too much because most of the l/s i own is a bit too loud to be worn everyday. I'm medium brown and I have pinkish lips already and this is definitely a MLBB lipstick because it's nearly the same color as my lips it just gives them a little pink pop without being over the top and it matched my skintone perfectly. This is the kinda lipstick that works with just about every skin complexion out there. I love this lipstick and definitely will be wearing a lot.

I'm not really a lipstick person,but the closest Mac to me is a counter. Therefore I can only B2M for l/s. A yr or 2 ago I had quite a few empties so I looked online,YT for colors(every day shades pink,nude) that were Wove friendly. Sweetie was one of those colors. As soon as I told the sa it was the color I wanted,she said it would look good me,Nc45 & that its a pretty color. Sure thing,I luv this color on! I usually use it for my neutral lippie. I've worn it with pink Rimmel gloss,Galaxy rose Cremesheen...which is Gawjus! And whirl liner. For me its a nice pop of color. As long as I can B2M,this will be my choice.

For years I never had the need to splurge my money on high end lippies, since I'm a complete drugstore junkie. But after hearing nothing but good things about MAC, the craving FINALLY kicked in. Sweetie was the first one I tried on and gorgeous! I fell in love instantly. It feels very comfortable and moisturizing on my lips. It's a lustre finish so the color is on the sheer side, but it's very buildable! The name basically describes its color in a nutshell..a light pinky-berry shade with slight shimmer. I personally think that it's a versatile color and can compliment just about any skin tone. So if you like a bit of color on your lips that's not too overwhelming, that gives you a fresh pretty glow, I def recommend sweetie!
Love love love! <3

Beautiful pink lipstick! I have medium-brown skin, and this pink is absolutely gorgeous. Better yet, it looks equally flattering on fair skin. It's a medium pink with the slightest bits of shimmer. The consistency is very smooth and application easy. It can be worn in a light layer so it's just pink enough to brighter your lips and glisten in the light. Or it can be built up for a more noticeable color. I'm sure it can be closely duplicated in color but this one is worth it. Definately a throw-in-your-purse shade.
