Normally I'm not a nude lipstick person. It's just not my style. But when I feel like nude lips, this lip color works. It's rosier than most nude lipsticks, and goes well with my fair pink toned skin. When I first put it on it looks way too beige, but after a couple of minutes it looks a bit pinker. The texture is nice and creamy, but it doesn't last long. If you want a nude lipstick that's a true beige, you won't be happy with this shade. Otherwise, I think this would work on most people with fair to medium skin tones.

I like it....its a very nice color....I'm NC20 and I can wear it without looking dead. You can change the tone by using different lip liners. Good price and smell doesn't really bother me.

I had purchased this & not really used it/stuck it in a drawer & today being home sick I decided to break it out coz I had seen some1 on a group (fb) say it was a dupe for a Gerard Cosmetics lippie & I am so happy I "found" this (shop ur stash ladies!), this is such a nice color! It's kind of a fawn color, a little darker than the Kim K concealer lips trend that has passed, but I prefer my nudes a little bit more on the tawny beige side than pink or lavender so this at least doesn't pull grey on me. I love it when I surprise myself by remembering something I had bought & tucked away & actually remember where I put it! If you like this you may want to try elf Party In The Buff or elf Natural Nymph ...also close in color but I prefer the 2 elf to this because they are slightly more beige. I am not a big fan of Loreal lipsticks (sooo expensive for DS, for a few dollars more I can get MAC!), I have a couple others laying around somewhere (Golden Splendor & Mica I think!), Loreal's price is just a sore point for me, I don't know if Loreal is worth the high DS price, I won't normally pay more than $10 for any single DS item without feeling ripped off, this cuts it close. The smell/taste doesn't bother me much, it's kind of amusing sort of like Coty Airspun loose powder kind of a matronly aroma. A good lipstick that looks good w a neutrally smoked out eye something u could use with elf 144 neutrals palette or UD Nakeds Basics. This is close to a few different MAC shades like Blankety & Creme d'nude. (I basically liked it mostly coz it was a dupe for Gerard Cosmetics even if I don't kno the name of the exact GC color.). Nude lipsticks are my fave!!

Fairest Nude is a very pretty beige-pink nude that looks super natural on the lips, if applied well. A lot of people didn't like this color because if applied heavily, it does have that unnatural concealer look. This is one of those colors that sits on top of the lips, rather than sinks in, if that makes sense. I found that dabbing it on the lips looks natural and pretty. This is a great everyday color that I think is probably universally flattering.

People complaining about the smell and texture is what motivated me to write a review on this staple in my makeup routine. How anyone can complain about the creamy and moisturizing formula of this lipstick is beyond me. And the smell--what smell? The faint perfume that has been in L'oreal lipsticks since the beginning of time is nostalgic and not off-putting to my very sensitive nose. This formula is simply awesome, and I am a total cosmetic snob when it coms to high-end brands. Even Chanel doesn't make a lipstick this great. Mac Myth wishes it could deliver half of the color and performance of Fairest Nude. The color is absolutely perfect paired with a smokey eye. HOLY GRAIL NUDE LIPSTICK. End of story.

This product is bittersweet. The colour is super flattering- it's definitely a "your lips but better" lipstick. It has a nice soft pink to it too, but not enough to take away from the nude. It feels creamy but not gooey, applies easily and evenly, goes with pretty much anything and has decent wear. Not all day (I always take off my lipstick if I'm eating or drinking any way), but I'd say a good four hours. Those are the "sweet things".

Now, for the bitter part- the smell. It smells not horrible or disgusting like garbage, but very fake perfume-y. It's distracting and unpleasant, like others said a very "old lady" sort of perfume smell. I recognize the smell from my childhood, but I can't put my finger on what! Maybe the super cheap lipsticks or something I had for play purposes when I was young.

The taste is pretty similar. I've been considering adding a nice gloss or something over top to mask it, but although I do not like these qualities, they won't stop me from wearing the lipstick. I do have to take off a lippie for it though, as the taste/aroma is not desirable whatsoever.

Ok so I have a love hate relationship with this. I used to love it! The color is perfect and the formula is opaque but the smell and taste are just gross. I used to be ok with it but one of my friend's mentioned it to me and now I hate it and just want to get this out of my collection. I need to find a color dupe though because this color is soooo flattering.

Run don't walk to pick this nude lippie up now! Don't make the same mistake as I did and waited after trying like a billion other nude lipsticks before this one. It's simply perfect. I have fair warm-toned skin and it looks amazing. Doesn't was me out at all. It is the nude I have been searching for - pink with some brown to tone it down and just looks amazing. Formulation is creamy and my lips never get dried out. Got it at Walmart for under $6! Packaging is super cute in the matte gold and the square case ensures it won't roll all over the place if dropped. Getting a back up no doubt!
