My absolute favourite lip colour with tones of brown to it was Bonne Bell Clic It in "Bliss"(have pics in review for it), once that was discontinued I searched high and low for a replacement- well okay, I just walked straight into MAC;obviously I wasn't too broken. Hug Me fit the bill. Beautiful nudey/beige/peachy/brown, wonderful moisturising texture and long lasting too- I went for Mexican-and you know how messy that can get!-and I was surprised when I went to freshen up it was still on perfectly. I wouldn't accentuate my eye colour with this one as I don't think it is "that" light (for me) to do so, but I really love this colour for a polished look.

I was really excited to buy Hug Me, but my happiness did not stay for long..just like this lipstick.I found it to be truly unfortunate that MAC luster lipstick do not have lasting power even an hour.It is a beautiful color...only if it could stay little longer.Re touching every hour does not seem practical to me so not purchasing it again.

I love this lipstick! It lasts very long and it's great for everyday use since it's not bold or daring at all.

On some days this is really a true MLBB for me. What i love about it is it's hydrating and the color is very versatile depending on the lipliner you use. I recently discovered that lustre lipsticks are the most worth it for me because i love applying them hence i can finish a tube for sure! some lipsticks last for YEARS on my train case and i end up just tossing them or b2m'ing them which is a waste. however, as with lustre lipsticks, lasting power isn't that long. i will probably buy another of this when i'm halfway done the tube. :)

This is a great product for someone with a dark complexion who wants to create a nude lip. I have pigmented lips and this is the only product that works for me. However I do find that it settles a lot in the lips and creases in my lips but this won't stop me from buying another stick :)

I'm absolutely thrilled with this lipstick!!! Being fair/pale (MAC NC15) it is a personal struggle to find a "nude" lipstick that doesn't make me look like a corpse or that I don't have lips! On my recent trip to the MAC store I was recommended this shade, but skeptical as my three other trials as MAC "nudes" failed me (Blankety, Creme D'Nude, and Myth) as they left me disappointed and looking dead.
After a few days of wearing Hug Me, I'm absolutely enthusiastic and a believer of "nude" lipstick. This shade is perfect as I don't look like a corpse and my lips are visible and distinguishable from the rest of my face. The colour shows up on my lips as a creamy slightly pink with a hint of peach. It's moisturizing and feels so smooth and rich on my lips and with the lustre finish it looks glossy and gorgeous. It's the perfect shade for me and I would recommend it to others who struggle finding a nude shade without looking dead or lipless. The only con for me is I am constantly reapplying as the formula isn't long wearing.

Are there two versions of this? The reviews seem to be split between a nude/beige description or a pink/mauve color. My lips are pinky-brown and on me, Hug Me is a sheer, slightly glossy mauvey-pink. The formula is surprisingly non-drying and the color wears away evenly. It brightens up my C3 complexion and is safe and appropriate for all occasions. I'm glad I bought this and will happily use it until it's finished, but will continue my search for the perfect MLBB in the meantime.

East Indian/Desi/NC40 skintone, with pigmented lips
Love love love Hug Me!! Its my absolute favorite, the one I always come back to.
Finding a good lipstick shade is always a huge pain in the @ss for me, b/c even if a shade seems to work with my skintone, it often looks gray or purplish on my pigmented lips. Or its too drying, and I end up with chapped lips that I constantly bite.
Hug Me not only successfully and beautifully colors my pigmented lips, but it also is one of the more moisturizing lipsticks I've tried. It looks really great with my olive desi skintone, and pairs well with a stronger eye. The only weak point is its lasting power. The color doesn't fade all that fast on me, but the creamy, "moist" look disappears quickly.
I imagine this shade would work well on many olive and/or tan skintones. But especially if you are Indian/Desi, I would highly recommend checking this lipstick out.

This is pretty much an HG status lipstick for me. It's a great MLBB color, a nude-brown toned pink. The color is very soft on my lips, giving it a slightly lighter look than my normal lip color without washing me out. I also love how this feels. It doesn't feel like a lipstick but instead a moisturizer. This is an absolutely lovely product. It's easy to wear, very subtle, and really sharpens a smokey look.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Dry, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I really love it. Great nude color. I wear it with love nectar lustreglass to go to work or to wear with flashy eyeshadows (like shimmermoss) or smokey eyes look. I really love it.

This is a lipstick that won't frighten the horses. I got it specifically for a nude/"minimal makeup" look for work and for when I'm hanging out with my nature-girl-no-makeup friends. I'd also wear it on a date when I want to look very demure.
Have noticed through the reviews overall that this is a color that suits darker skin as a contrast and PPP's (that's porcelain pale princesses) as an attractive natural/neutral, and that ladies in the midrange find it blah. For me, like a perfect vanilla ice cream, this color really is an accomplishment. A lot of would-be neutrals either go strangely ashen on my mouth or reveal fake-looking orange or lavender tones. But Hug Me gives me a "like my mouth, just a bit better" set of lips.
Like other lipsticks in the MAC Lustre range, this formula is kind to older mouths with some lines/dryness.

included a swatch, look above. I wanted everyone to see what it looks like on pigmented lips. Hug me is a great nude but i personally won't wear it without a pink lipglass on top. On my cremesheen " partial to pink" review i did a swatch of the two together. I would buy this lipstick again, its great as a base for pinks that would usually be too sheer for me to pull off.
update: try this with Nyx mega lipgloss in "trendy" and it becomes the most incredible sexy nude lippie ever. i'm nc50 for refferance.

This is a product that I wish we could do half ratings for. I would give this a 3.5. For reference, I am NC30 with brown eyes and dark blonde hair. This showed up a little more on the pink side than I like, but after dabbing it slightly to fade out some of the pinkness, I really like this color. The lasting power is incredible too. I believe I would repurchase if I could not find another nude/natural color before this is gone.

This is one of my favorite MAC lipsticks. I am a NC45 and it compliments my skin in ways I could not imagine. I definitely recommend this lipstick to people of my skin tone or with tanned skin. It is a mauvey pink color & is very pretty on the lips. I love the vanilla scented smell of MAC lipsticks. You do not have to apply this lipstick because it has a gloss to it. I purchased this lipstick 3 times & I will continuing purchasing it . THUMBS UP!

This was overall a nice lipstick, but didn't impress me much. Could have stopped at a local drugstore and bought something much like this color. Typical shade, I'd say. It does look nice though. Very natural! Would look great with a brozed look. I have to give thumbs up for such a wonderful formula! It's so smooth, and creamy. The only thing I don't like is how it looks like I applied lip gloss, but that is to be expected with a lustrous lipstick. I would recommend this to a friend.

I have finally found my HG everyday lipstick.
I was surprised because the mac mua told me not to get it because it will not show up on my lips and she suggested to just get honeyflower. I HATED the way honeflower looked on me so i went back i got the hug me. im glad i did because i love love love this for everyday use. even when im feeling bummy i can just throw it on and not look like im overdoing it.
I'm nc45 with brownish lips. I first line my lips with stripdown liner and then use this lipstick.

Hug me I wish I could Hug you! This is the lipstick I have been looking for: not shimmery, very smooth, a nice shine and adds to the pigment of my lips without overpowering. I great every day, wear to work shade.
With my fair skin, blonde hair and blue eyes it works well with many makeup color schemes.

This is a creamy, warm, mauve-y lipstick with some pink undertones to it.
I have fair-medium skin, and this went on a little darker on me than I expected. No frost or glitter. It has sort of a light vanilla smell to it.
If you're looking for a nude lipstick with some light hint of color in it, then you might like this. It was a little more "mauve" than "pink" on me. Actually, the color seems to match the most pigmented part of my lips almost exactly. I prefer lighter pink and peach undertones when it comes to nude lipsticks. Personally, I think this would look better on people with medium to darker skin tones.
It's a good quality lipstick, as far as texture, lasting wear, and pigmentation goes, but it doesn't suit me personally the way I had hoped. I'll use it up, but I probably won't repurchase. Recommended for others though.

Just bought Hug Me yesterday as i was looking for a shade for everyday wear. i love the texture of this lipstick as this is a lustre, and it is defintiely much easier to apply compared to my Creamsheen Creme d'Nude. This is definitely a MLBB shade, so if you are looking for anything that is dramatic, Hug Me will not satisfy you, as it will only make your lips look more polished and healthily pinkish (in my opinion). i can foresee that i'm going to reach for this very often, especially on casual days when i don't want to appear too made up. love the trademark vanilla smell of MAC lipsticks! lasting power is towards the shorter side though, i find myself reapplying at least 3 - 4 times a day, but i'm pretty okay with that. Another winner from MAC. :)

MAC's "hug me" lustre lipstick is a creamy, warm beige almost putty colour, and it is deep enough in winter to make me look alive (I wear MAC NC20 concealor). If I am having a pale day it can look a little too peachy, but otherwise it is a my-lips-but-better shade. I don't wear this lipstick in the summer when I am more naturally tanned (NC25) because it washes me out.
The price of this in Australia is $35AUD, a little too dear for me to buy back-ups. Besides the price, I have complaints about the formula of this shade. The texture of the lustre lipsticks tends to emphasise the lines in my lips, this is particularly a problem if the shade is one-dimensional rather than irridescent. I'm in my mid-thirties and the last thing I want from a lipstick is for it to make me look like I have lip wrinkles. Also "Hug Me" only lasts thirty minutes after application even without eating or drinking. I am too busy to reapply lipstick every thirty minutes. Finally, the lipstick leans against the side of the tube when I apply it, creating ring marks all over the stick. I am afraid the stick will break off at the base. Perhaps MAC can solve this problem by packaging the lustres in slim tubes rather than traditional lipstick bullets?
I won't repurchase "hug me" but I might consider other lipsticks in the lustre formula because I've tried MAC lustre lipstick in "touch" and it was not as soft as "hug me" and also had better staying power.
