This is my first mac lipstick, and while waiting for it to arrive (ordered it)., I needed a similar shade and got a tube of NYC at Walmart for like $1.85... Creamy caramel. Well, this came in yesterday and I LOVE IT! But I just noticed that the two are VERY SIMILAR. SO I searched them. Exactly the same color, almost the exact same scent, (both are vanilla-ish) and the finish and consistency are practically exact. It's definitely a dupe. The only difference is the price, by far, the packaging is far superior with the mac, and the NYC is slightly thinner. Only slightly. Both have awesome staying power and are creamy and glide on, feel comfortable and look amazing. They're absolutely the same shade. If I knew how, I'd load the picture of the swatches. Pretty much identical. Still, I prefer the mac for the thickness, the tube, and the scent is a tiny bit different. Just letting y'all know there is a very inexpensive but great quality dupe for half n half. I'd purchase it again, and reccomend this perfect shade, it's beautiful and feels awesome. However, being that it's my first mac lipstick, I will probably try some other colors and finishes next time. But I'm definitely LOVING mac!

LOVE MAC lipstick, super affordable compared to other lipsticks of the same caliber. I bought this color on a whim the other day and its my new favorite color. Only drawback would be that it's slightly drying, but I haven't found a lipstick yet that isn't.

Ummm Half n Half, where have you been during my entire makeup wearing life?! (20yrs already wtf?! Lol). I can't believe this was never recommended to me by anyone at MAC. It's a great color for me. This is a great neutral nudey color that Mac describes as a creamy pink, but I don't really see too much pink...I'm around NC/C30 yellowish golden olive, with dark brown/black hair and dark brown eyes. This is in your typical black case, snaps shut and smells like vanilla. The color is great for any situation- from a work environment to a night out on the town paired with a smoky eye. It has a great smooth texture that doesn't dry out my lips or settle in lip lines. It doesn't make my lips peel or irritate. It faded evenly and I did have to reapply a little after eating or drinking something. It's a cream amplified finish so there's shine and it's not super matte. Super thumbs up and will definitely repurchase!

Really great everyday color! Best for when you don't want to think about what lipstick to wear or you don't want anything high maintenance. MLBB even for fair skin! Very comfortable on the lips.

This is my first mac lipstick. My makeup artist for prom used it for me on the day and when I asked for a swatch just to reapply after a couple hours she gave if to me to keep!!! That was sooo nice of her and I slaaaayyyeddd on the day no exaggeration lol but anyway I would describe half n half as a pinkish nude. It's a nice neutral colour for girls of colour. Before I used to stray away from lipstick cause my lips are quite pouty and I don't want them to look to big but I think there are lipsticks that compliment every lip shape and shade so don't rule anything out! I usually apply this with a pink lipgloss I think by Rimmel I can't remember the name though and I loove it, it's now my day to day lip colour!! I definitely want to get more mac lipsticks but the price is a turn-off, £15.50 for a lipstick for me is ridiculous u could buy like 5 decent lipsticks with that money if u went to boots or Supedrug or your local hair shop. It pains my heart but despite this I will definitely repurchase. My lips looks so pretty in this, like kylie jenners only mine where hand crafted by Jesus himself lol I definitley recommend for everyone it will suits all shades all the way up from porcelain girls to deep deep Choco x

Great nude for smokey eyes for olive/Indian skin.i am n30.i like jubilee. But jubilee does not show up on my lip.it comes as a great alternative for its opaque coverage.its kinda muted pinky brownish nude on me.

Perfect nude shade for me. I'm at an age where veering too far away from my natural lip shade can look harsh. I usually have to stick to plums and mauves. I was worried this one might be a little too light but it's actually perfect for my skin color. Half N Half is kind of a hard shade to describe. Perhaps a light brownish pink. Very flattering. You can change the hue of this lipstick by trying different lip liners. Berry type liners will bring out the pink but a brownish or reddish liner will make it look more brown/mauve.

for me buying this product wasnt worth the price due to me having to mix it with diffrent lipliners and more pinky colours just to get the right colour.
I feel like it makes me look very washed out which I hate.
it wasnt matte enough in my opinion.
I felt that i needed to change my lipcolour half way through the day.

I have pale skin and very vibrant copper hair so I sometimes struggle to find lipsticks that suit my hair colour and don't clash. Half N Half is gorgeous!!! Half N Half is almost exactly the same colour as Velvet Teddy so if you are like me and aren't too keen on the matte finish lipsticks then I would 100% recommend Half n half as an alternative. On me it's a beautiful nude brown with a hint of pink. The amplified finish is my second favourite mac finish (satin being my first). I love that they are completely opaque and creamy without being too creamy. Half N Half lasts about 6 hours on me and I can eat and drink and it will still stay on. It wears off evenly and leaves a natural pink stain behind. I love this lipstick so much as an everyday lipstick and 100% will be buying this again when my current one runs out!!

this is a nice pinky brown a bit darker than cherish but creamier and smoother in texture because its an amplified creme instead of satin.
