Love this color! It's a perfect pinky nude color on me. I'm almost on my 2nd tube of this. I love that it's very moisturizing and lasts quite a few hours. It doesn't dry out my lips or anything. Some time's I wear a gloss over it but it's soo pretty as is. My lips aren't very pigmented but this lipstick gives them the perfect shade. I will be re-purchasing this lipstick again! I'm NC37 for reference.

My new love as far as lipsticks go. Quite honestly I wouldn't wear this alone, because it makes my lips disappear but layered underneath a nice gloss - doesn't really matter what, it looks good with all the glosses I've tried - or over a deeper lipstick it is just awesome. I never wear a gloss on its own, as my unevenly pigmented lips (darker on my upper lip, kinda red on my bottom lip, and 'naturally' lined on the sides - sheer lipsticks? Forget it!) but Half-N-Half covers the imperfections really well and lets me wear lipgloss which I wouldn't be able to wear on bare lips.



It lasts a good few hours, too, - which is a good thing because reapplication dries up my lips even when worn over a lipbalm (but then all MAC lipsticks tend to be drying on me).


Shu Uemura Nobara stick in 754 for ref (NC35)

on my Nth tube of this color. It has worked for my blonde hair, for my red hair (all tones) and for my daughter's brown/blonde streaked hair. It even works with my mother's grey hairs..lol.

This is a great browned/beige/nude/pinky tone which will cover most pigmented lips and work with most skin colors.

I love the texture and usually use my Spite gloss on top for a really neutral look.

This color is my go to lipstick for everyday wear to work. I love it. It is a nudey/pinky/mauvey color which really changes based on the pigmentation of your lips and the tone of your skin. It is a definitely a tricky color to pull off for some people. You should definitely go to MAC and swatch in advance prior to buying. As far as cons, I wish this color stayed on my lips longer. It wears off very quickly so you have to reapply constantly. Having said that, I love it and will continue to use until I find something more compelling. I am on my second tube and will be buying a back up soon.
Hope this review was helpful.

I love this lipstick!!! I will definately be wearing this alot!! It is the perfect nude. The MAC website describes it as a "creamy pink". My lips aren't very pigmented, so this looks very nice. I can see myself wearing this a lot during the week for work. It is an amplified creme, so the color payoff is really good as is the lasting power versus the lustres. NC44/C6/C7

LOVE the color, I'm an NC45 at MAC and this lipstick has great coverage, true to its color but also goes on smooth and not sticky at all...the lasting power is medial but its worth it for the color payoff. Its my go to nude lipstick!

Just bought this yesterday and am in love with this lipstick. I cant stop reapplying through out the day! Love the nude look but not over the top. Will repurchase...

I got this today in a B2M and I love it so far! I spent about half an hour trying to find a good nude shade which I could wear with my peachier blushes (I already have Midimauve which I wear with my pink and plum blushes).


I have pigmented lips so Half'n'Half is just ever so slightly lighter than my natural lip colour. I'd described it as a beige-nude-brown colour. I don't see much pink in it, but I'm still getting used to it.


It looks gorgeous on and I loove the consistency of it; this is my first amplified creme and I know it already lasts longer than lustres.


Love it so far, may update if this changes! NC44 in SFF for reference.


EDIT: Still loving this, actually I think this lippie has become my HG. There are slight pink tones in it, but it's mostly a nudey-brown on my pigmented lips. It is so MLBB, the consistency and colour make it seem like I'm not even wearing lipstick at all sometimes if I only put a swipe or two - my lips just look fuller, smoother, and much much sexier with this on. It gives me a polished look.


I carry one with me in my purse, and may have to buy some more backups because I fear it may be discontinued?! (I couldn't find it on the MAC website anymore...).

I like it. It's best to make the eye area dramatic. A great nude color for AA women.

This color completely disappeared into my lips. I suppose some people would want that look for a nude l/s, but this really looked boring on me, as if I just put some chapstick on. I haven't really found the perfect "nude" lipstick yet. I ended up returning it and got Modesty instead which looks so much better on me. For reference I'm Buttered Tan/ NC35 studio fix.
