I love this lipstick, the color is really unique. I don't mind the shimmer too much, it's a great everyday shade that makes a smokey-eye pop!

I really wanted to love this shade. The color is ok...I can see how it flatters so many women, but it just does nothing for me. It's a neutral-warm caramel pink with fine gold shimmer. It's heavy on the fine gold shimmer though, so it's really bordering on a frost lipstick. My lips are naturally light mauvey pink, and when I apply VGV it turns a bit reddish/ brownish on me; a bland cinnamon pink that's isn't quite nude or MLBB. Not flattering at all, and there is nothing I can do to save it. The formula is drying as well. It's a shame, because this lipstick is for a great cause and I really wanted a perfect neutral pink lipcolor with gold shimmer. If this shade doesn't work for you, I've found that MAC's "Bare" Slimshine and Laura Mercier's "Tea Rose" are everything I wanted this to be: Bare is a truly neutral pink with gold pearl, while Tea Rose is a neutral MLBB nude with pink iridescence. NC 35-40.

I bought this and when I first put it on, I really liked the color. However, I started to notice the large amount of shimmer in this lipstick. I read that many people like this for a nice natural look, but if I would be terrified to wear this to an interview or work because of the amount of shimmer. I wiped off the lipstick, and there's still shimmer on my lips. I wish I could find this color without the shimmer. :(

Very nice nude color w/ subtle shimmers. It was my very first lipstick I purchased from MAC. Very nice color for any event and everyday looks. I would repurchase if I every use it all up. Also the Viva Glam is for a great cause too! So you would be contributing for their cause while getting a very nice lipstick!

OMG this color is perfect. I have naturally "alabaster" colored skin but tan easily too. anyways. i was wondering if it would look flattering on me when i am pale like some nudish colors do. Nope it is awesome. have you ever seen those porcelain dolls they have this lipcolor that is so perfect and natural this is that color. pair it with spice lipliner. Just gorgeous.

This lipstick is awesome. It is the best for nude, sexy lips. I like to line it with either subculture or stripdown. Gigglefest lipgloss to finish the look. A must have lipstick for every girl!

Great everyday lipstick! I would have never chosen this one by myself but the makeup artist suggested this one when I was buying makeup for my wedding.

This is my HG nude lipstick. It does have a bit of shimmer to it, which i could do without... but overall i LOVE this for me. I know every girl out there spend their lifetime (ok maybe not their lifetime) searching for the perfect nude lipstick... this looks great as an everyday natural lip colour or with a dramatic smokey look. I've only had it for a few months and am ready to purchase a new tube... absolutely adore it =)
