I love this lipstick, it's a beautiful pinky nude which I love to pair up with NARS Turkish Delight! Really beautiful, kind of reminds me of the whole Mac Angel look!

It's not bad. This nude shade doesn't fit everyone if you have fair skin it would fit you. Has a Satin finish with little bit of shimmer.The formula is creamy but it dries my lips when i take it off. It accencuates creases.

This came off a medium nude color on me despite so many recommending it for my pale skintone. I'm sorry, but it's ugly. This isn't a MLBB shade as I don't have that much brown pigment in my coloring. The only reason I won't throw it in the trashcan is I want to give it another chance when I have a spray tan on before deciding its fate. The shade applies a smidge darker than in the tube!

What saves this lipstick from getting 1 star is the formula. The formula is AWESOME. It's very balmy/hydrating, lasted on my lips for 6 hours, super pigmented, and there was no nasty shimmer. Nothing kills a lip product for me more than when cosmetics company put glitter or shimmer in the product. So that was a big plus. Additionally it didn't have any taste. I've noticed a lot of companies are putting peppermint oil in their lip products for a plumping effect, and I'm sorry - but that's a deal breaker for me. It dries my lips out. So thank you Rimmel for not doing that.

The smell really gets to me every time. Makes my stomach turn.
The color looks like a zombie shade to me lol.
I find the texture and look on the lips to be very cheap and tacky looking.
Not impressed with this product

Bought this after reading so many great reviews

Bought with Rimmel East End Snob which I like

1). Dirt Cheap
2). Very versatile nude
3). Can wear alone looks but looks best when I have some bronzer on my N20 cool skin
4). Easy to brighten up with a liner or gloss or blush on top
5). Easy to tone down with a flesh colored liner or lipstick or pencil
6). Easy to make matt by tapping some blush ontop and blotting
7). Works as a cream blush for a very natural look

1). It does have a scent, I prefer no scent
2). Texture, not sure feels thick, so I blot with tissue
3). It is not my perfect lip nude MLBB, it is slightly warmer and slightly darker


Revlon PrimRose

1). It is a bit lighter and cooler than airy fairy
2). For me, is the perfect MLBB and for me it works best on its own
3) I also can use as a cream blusher
4). I can also add gloss on top
5). I can throw in bag, and need no other make up other than mascara
6). I like the texture no scent (I still blot to make it look natural)

Had I bought Primrose first, I would have skipped Airy Fairy but Airy Fair does work fine, it is just not as perfect as Primrose

Love this color! Natural looking but with a little more oomph. Not so much color that your boyfriend doesn't like it lol...

Neutral medium mauve beige with gorgeous gold shimmer. I am NC 20, but I think it will work for everyone with fair/light or even medium(?) no matter whether cool or warm. Not exactly moisturizing but not drying either. Staying power is pretty good too. Just try; too good not to.

Love it! I'm roughly an NC15 to NC20 and this is the perfect nude for me. I have a drawerful of nude lipsticks and this is by far the best due to the touch of pink it has. I love the creamy texture and it does not sink into lip lines. I also like that it doesn't make my teeth seem yellow, like some nude lipsticks do.

I have NC20ish skin and it's really hard to find a nice pinkish nude. most are too brown toned or too dark but this one is perfect.

I avoided this color for so long, afraid I couldn't wear it. Today, though, I was in the drugstore and saw it again and decided to give it a go. I've had it on ever since I got in the car to come home. I think it's going to be a keeper. It's a pretty, neutral pinkish tone on me, a very good nude, actually. I had been wearing Lasting Finish in 104, which I also love, but this formula is not quite as dry-feeling on. I always prep with balm first, but this feels very nice and seems to be wearing just fine.

I'll update if I have any surprises in the next few wearings, but I have a hunch I'll be buying another.
