I went on a quest to find a concealer that wouldn't collect under my eyes and emphasize any dryness. I love this product because it doesn't do either. The colors do run very dark and I wear number 1 although I am a solid NC 25, but I do like the pinkier color since it helps diminsh the darkness under my eyes. Lately I have been wearing this with the Bobbi Brown hydrating concealer and I can honestly say it is invisible. Will definitely re-purchase.
Just a thin lightly colored balm on me. It had zero staying power and just made me feel like my lips were even smaller than without it. In my experience this is not a good product at all...threw mine away :(
I just did not like these at all. They were not moisturizing on me at all and I agree with the other reviewers who say it almost seems to take away moisture from your lips. Also I personally didn't care for the colors I tried, they were either too dark for me or had no color at all. These are no better than an ordinary lower end lip balm and not at all worth the hype they are getting imho.
Unless you really plan on packing on this color it really does not seem to look like the color in the pan. Sheered out it looked TERRIBLE on me and had a kind of blotchy, chunky shimmery texture that did not seemed to be finely milled enough. I personally hated this color (it reflected a weird orange gold on me), but it may be more tolerable packed on. Like another reviewer said, another fail from MAC and this one is going back to the store :(

If you like glossy or slick lip balms you will probably hate this, but this is hands down my favorite lip balm ever. It is very, very waxy and it leaves a nice satin, almost-matte finish on your lips. I wear it just with lip liner and it stays in place for hours. I have them stashed all over the house and nothing works better for keeping my lips from getting dry.
