Woohoo finally got creme cup after wanting it for sooo long! I feel like it's always sold out. I love this color, it's a beautiful light pink! I agree with the other reviews that it is wearable for us warmer toned ladies out there if angel is too blue for you. I tried them both on and creme cup looked more flattering on my nc30-35 skin. I can see myself using this a TON. It just gives your lips this lovely baby pink look but it's definitely not OTT. I would for sure rebuy this one, I'm so happy it's permanent.

Picked this up for my bac2mac after hearing its praises on the board. :) Described as a light blue pink by MAC, I find it's comparable to Angel (soft pink) shade wise but easier to pull off for us warmer toned ladies. It's a soft baby rose pink.I agree that's it's not completely warm, I can see the blue undertones in this but they are not overwhelming which keeps this from being a completely cool shade. I think neutral and warmer toned ladies will really like this shade, if Angel was completely unwearable for you, check out Creme Cup. Also since it's a cremesheen formula, it's more moisturizing than some of MAC's other formulas (like Angel which is a frost). For reference, I'm NC30-35ish (strong yellow undertones) Shell in Chanel T.I., #3 in GA face fabric, #32 in MUFE f & b, and 127 in MUFE HD.

This lipstick is described as a "light blue pink" on the MAC website. When it first came out and I saw swatches on it online I was hesitant to buy it because I thought it would be too blue on my med-fair olive complexion. However, after trying it out I really liked it. On me, it's a rose pink, I can see a hint of blue in that it's not a warm pink, but it's not too cool at all. The color payoff is good and the lasting power is ok. It's not drying, but I usually use a chapstick under it, as I do with all my lipsticks. The only thing I don't like is that it has very fine "glitter" in it, which means that if I don't exfoliate my lips perfectly, or, if I try to touch it up during the day without wiping the previous coat off my lips, it can go on grainy, which is why I'm taking one lippie off. However, this hasn't kept me from reaching for it a lot. I would probably repurchase when I ran out because I really like the color. Wish it came in an amplified creme formula though.

At first I loved this lipstick. The shade is still to die for, if not just a wee bit TOO pink. There is glitter in the formula so the application is a little grainy. I repeat: There is GLITTER in this formula. Grainy. I didn't notice this when I first tried it on, otherwise I would not have purchased. The thing that makes it lose lippies is that it MELTS, if it doesn't melt in the sun or even your pocket, then it'll melt on its own anyway. It gets so soft that when you apply it, you actually MOVE or BREAK the lipstick right off. Sadly, all MAC lipsticks tend to do this to me. You'd think MAC would have found a way to make their lipsticks solid enough to not break and melt so easily.. it does smell like cake batter!

Wow i am so surprised. When i first opened the tube i thought WTF its kind of a peach color. But once i applied it to my pigmented lips, it turned this slight toned down barbie doll pink. Its soo gorgeous & it smells like cup cake batter! I thought adding even MORE pink onto my head would look strange but it somehow works. I will use up this baby super fast.

Just RIS and I am so glad that I did!! At first I was turned off by how peachy it was in the tube, but I tried it any way and it was perfect!!!! No peach showed up just pink....This is what I have been looking for the perfect pink, not to Barbie and not Grandma either. I normaly wear Fabby and Syrup so I wanted to get away from those and I could never find what I was looking for a sexy, clasy pink and this was it.For references I am NW20/25 with blues eyes and blonde hair.Get this color you will be glad you did.

okay, i think only select girls can wear this. i personally love it but i am INCREDIBLY pale with both yellow and pink undertones. the texture is silky and hydrating. have super pigmented lips and this gave me that soft baby pink look. not 80's baby pink. just natural 'its your wedding day' baby pink. its definitely something i could wear everyday and would look AMAZING with a bold eye. with that said, ive tried it on a lot of my friends who aren't pale, and who dont have pigmented lips, and this pretty much didnt show up AT ALL on their lips.

I just bought this one yesterday and already fell in love with it! I was asking the MA to find a lightly nude pink natural color. First she recommended me the Viva Glam but I already have that one so she gave me this. She knows that I have very red lips so I need something that is pigmented enough and would neutralize my lip color. I put it in, and instantly fell in love with it! It just looks so right on my lip, very very natural and pretty. I bought it right away without a second thought! the formula is as great as always, nice smell and moisturizing enough. My HG lipstick!

I bought this lipstick after reading all the reviews cus i was honestly just gonna stick to my Lavendar Whip, but I am so0o0o happy i didnt. This color is a beautiful pale pink. I am a C6 and if i put to much on it will be too nude for my complexion. I put on the right amount and its beautiful. Since it is from the creme sheen collection its very smooth and creamy. I feel like this could be worn along with no l.g cus of the texture. It has the same nice vanilla scent as all the MAC Lipsticks.I put a little Love Nectar on top and im good to go.

I swapped for this based on the reviews here. Several positive reviews came from ladies with complexions darker than mine (I'm NC 20), so I assumed this would be ok for me. Unfortunately it was too sheer, so it became a weird ugly mix of lipstick + original lip colour. I can use lipliner or even concealer to correct this, but I expected this lippie to be more pigmented, so I'm marking it down.Update: I read a few more other reviews and found that buried at the back were several reviews that mentioned that this lippie turns purple on the lips, altho there's no purple when swatching. They're RIGHT. This looks awful on me :(
