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.

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.
