I picked this up at a MAC counter in a Duty free shop and realised that it was part of the creamsheen collection that came out some time ago and it was LE in Singapore. I have never worn lavender coloured lipsticks because I thought they don't suit me but this lipstick has changed my opinion. On me creme cup is a pretty lilac-pink colour, yes it does show up a little lilac on my lips and I really do like this colour and it can go on with any kind of makeup!

I will definitely purchase it again if I can find it after I use up this tube. For reference I'm NC30.

I'm a mix of NC20 and NW20 and have very pigmented lips. I like to tone down the color most of the time so I tried Creme Cup because it looked pretty on the shelves and when I swatched it on my hand.

The sad news was that it just didn't look right when applied. Creme lipsticks usually don't apply "right" on my lips, they get kind of cakey and uneven in texture, and they settle in my liplines and make my lips look streaky. This one was no exception.

I've tried wearing this using a light hand with some lip balm or even gloss underneath and it does the trick! It looks really pretty and natural but polished with some oomph. It looks even better with Pinkarat lustreglass on top!

The downside: I think blondes would wear this particular color better than brunettes like me.

My new favorite lipstick. This is what I wanted Angel to look like and it's not frosty. Creme Cup and Speed Dial are my favorite lippies from MAC. I love that it's a Cremesheen so it's not drying. I have NC40-42 skin (in studio sculpt) and it looks great when I just lightly dab it over my lips, if you swipe it all over your lips it can look too much very quickly so it's better to dab it considering my skintone. This is the only lipstick I would wear without lipgloss it looks that good. I also have tried different glosses with it: Morning Glory, Viva Glam VI SE, and Baby Sparks Dazzleglass when I feel like it. All three look great paired with it!

I like this color, a nice nudey pink it didn't go purple on me like i heard it has for some. It slightly pissed of my anti glitter lips which is the only reason it went back.

This is really unnatural on my lips and coloring but I do like it...just not something I would wear often. It is thick and opaque. It kinda looks messy and gloopy if I put this on my top and bottom lip so I just lightly dab it on a blend with my finger. It's really moist so it works well like that. I am happy with it overall but the light blue-ish pink lip isn't a look I can wear everyday.

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.
