I was given this as a friend who found it wasn't the right colour for her skin, and alas it isn't the right colour for my skin either. This looks a strange pinkish grey colour on me, making me look like a corpse. The texture's a little drying and I can't comment on the staying power as I've never kept it on long enough to find out. Beware all of you with yellow undertones …Read more

I completely agree with a previous review: this is meant for warm complexions with darker skin and not for cool toned PPP's. I'm a PPP, neutral/cool and it looks muddy/orange/beige and like death on me. It also was quite drying and not smooth when trying to apply.

I just bought this color and I looooove it. The color last a while and it's very moisturizing. Not drieing at all. Great formula and I'm pretty sure that i'm done searching for a nude lip color. It's not shimmery at all, it's very matte. Only $5 and if you can get buy one get one free that's a better deal! I got mine bogo and I got Brazilian. It's a dark brown …Read more

On my lips quite natural and quite "angelina" nude. I'm fair with yellow undertones and my lips are more on the brown side (but just a bit). And f.e. Airy fairy looks too pink on me. Formula is a bit sheer and a bit dry (which suits me because my lips are moist).
It's a bit too shiny for my taste and it seems that color got darker after few months...

It's really lovely, cheap and lasts quite a while nor is extremely drying.
The color looks pretty neutral on me, really pretty with slight peach undertones. For the price it's a good product.

This lipstick absolutely did not work for me. I'm NC25, light olive, dark hair, pigmented lips. Since I'm warm, I figured this would be a nice nude. Unfortunately on my lips it was a shimmery orange-brown brick mess. Ick. It was also a quite drying, as Rimmel lipsticks tend to be. Nudes from Rimmel that I love are Provocative Nude & Boudoir [both LE].
It's too bad …

Wow, I have to thank the board for pointing me in this direction. This is the first time I've tried Rimmel and probably wouldn't have it some of you ladies hadn't taken pictures and shown how pretty this color is on!

This is THE perfect nude for warm skinned ladies out there...I can see where it would turn too orangey on cool skinned women (check your veins ladies …

This looked like a nice light neutral. It went on darker than you'd think by looking at it in the tube. I still like it. It wears ok for such an inexpensive product. Since it's a longer wearing lipstick, it is a bit drying. Applying a balm first really helps.

I needed a nice neutral lippie easy to stick in the purse and this is it! Lovely soft hint of color, moist & not waxy, & has a light flavor/fragrance/something, that reminds me a bit of MAC lipsticks.

ETA--not as happy with this after a while--it dried out quickly. :-( Changed my mind, would prolly not buy again.

Picked this up for the very reasonable price of $2.99 at shoppers. A great neutral or everyday colour as implied by the name. It looks like a brown slightly peach lippie with shimmer. Good everyday colour but you might want to add some gloss on top of this because it's not very moisturizing.
