I love this nude lipstick! It glides on great and has a great shine to it. I usually use it with MAC's 'Stone' lipliner, but its also great by itself. My skin is a darker brown shade, so it looks awesome alone or with a full face of makeup. If I dont have some chap stick on days I dont have makeup on, i usually just use a little of this to keep something on my lips throughout the day.

I say I wouldn't buy this again simply because it is one of my first nude lipstick purchases and I will continue changing to different ones instead of sticking to one. New to the world of nudes, I bought this on a whim whilst looking for something other than a pink shade to compliment a smokey eye. It didn't really work the way I wanted it to or thought it would - it was a bit too brown on me. it looks too dark with a smokey eye for me, I am very pale. I was disappointed as I really like the colour. i find myself putting this colour on before a night out, looking at it for a few moments before wiping it off to change to a more subdued colour. Doesn't really work by day either as it is quite dark unless that's the look you're after. makes me look like some kind of vampire i think with the extra dark lip and the pale skin! prob look nicer on people with darker skin than my milk white skin! worth a try all the same because it still beats those extremely nude nudes which make it seem like you have no lips at all. Buying it again, probably not but it is worth a try.

HG lipstick, hands down.

I searched forever - anything that looked good in person looked terrible in pictures.

I use MAC lip liner (or annabell) called spice with this lipstick and it always looks great. In person, in pictures. I dig the nude / not trying too hard look, and this does just that.

I wear it to work, and even out if I am going to the bar. It just suits my skin very well (NW 40 former NC 32 as per a wrong decision for a lot of years).

It doesn't stay on if you eat anything, it gets on all my clothes if I have it on my hands, I do not kiss my boyfriend without messing him up and it costs like 18 dollars plus tax. Having said that, I don't care. It is not a lipstain and it is not expected to be anything more than a lipstick.

It is creamy, but not wet. I find some MAC lipsticks are, but this one is not. I do not even wear chapstick underneath and my lips always look juicy.

If you are looking for something super versatile that is really easy to use, not overly pigmented but provides nice colour and coverage for tan skin: this is it.

MAC Half n Half is a really great neutral/ nude color for gals who have a tanner or darker skin tone. This lipstick might look too brown and muddy on girls with fairer skin tones. Half n Half comes off as a nudey pink color. Because of the pink undertones in this lipstick, it isn't too hard to pull off. This doesn't make my lips look like ghost lips and compliments my skin tone and any eye makeup I wear. It is an amplified lipstick so it has great color payoff. The scent of this lipstick is amazing, it smells like sugar! The consistency is really creamy and glides on the lips with ease. This the perfect nude color for my lips, and this is the lipstick I reach for the most.

This is a nude shade on me, it just takes the pink out of my lips and is great with all my tan and brown fall clothes.

Folks with darker pigment in your lips take heed-this IS your perfect nudey color. It is exactly the color which the name implies- the color of a cup of light coffee with creamer added. This color is in MAC's Amplified line-essentially the same formula as the Cremesheen line but with a little more pigment. (If you are looking for a nudey pink-check out Cosmo.) This is a perfect go anywhere anytime neutral-perfect when doing a bolder eye/blush as well. Currently retailing at $14.50 USD. No concealer-lips color here-just a perfect creamy beige/light caramel nude. Recommend!

SA recommended half n half for a mlbb lipstick. I decided to trust her and just bought it on whim since it was a freebie. I only swatched and left the store. I applied a small amount when I found out its amplified. I thought it was a bit brown at first, then when I got to my car after two hours, I was in for a surprise! Loveliest mlbb I've seen thus far. Now I know to listen to MAC artists LOL. This is foolproof and easy to wear for work. Just when I was about to swear off MAC I find this. I guess its a repurchase for me in the future!!

My new favorite lipstick! This is a gorgeous color--perfect for daytime or evening to accentuate dramatic, smokey eyes. Picked it out on a whim at the MAC store and so glad I did. A great nude brown lipstick for my pigmented lips that isn't dominated by pink or coral undertones.
