I LOVE this lipstick! I never thought I'd find a good MAC lipstick color that I'd absolutely fall in love with (everything I've owned from them is only so-so)... but this is it! On my NC 30/C3/medium beige asian skin, this lipstick shows up as a very pinky nude with slight peach tones. Looks orange in the tube but not on my mauve-y toned lips. I believe this does for me what most of the more raved-about nude lipsticks do for other people... mainly, it doesn't wash me out. Gorgeous! I top it off with Richer, Lusher cremesheen glass for a brighter pop of coral. I had to stock up on 2 extra tubes - hope MAC decides to make this permanent! For those that are having trouble with the patchiness, try using MAC's lip primer first. Cremesheens are my fave formula and everytime I use a primer, it glides on smoothly and doesn't ever cake up. The lipstick lasts a lot longer too.

this product is horrible compared to the retroactive day defense one! i cannot believe how oily this product is! it literally makes my hands slick and my face so shiny, it's disgusting. It doesn't even make me feel like my skin is moisturized even with all that oiliness because it doesn't absorb into the skin. I have normal/combo skin and loved the day defense because it was light. but wow, youth extending is way over the top.
