No idea why on earth I bought this for myself it is horrendous with my skin tone hahaha but I liked it :(.
It is a very light milky pink that is not at all flattering on the lips. It accentuates any type of dryness or lines on the lips. It looks very garish and gross. The consistency is almost like you mixed a stick concealer with Vaseline. Not a pretty look.

This is a light strawberry pink. It's really moisturizing and pigmented. I finished a tube of it up pretty quickly. I enjoyed the color but it's floral scent keeps me from repurchasing it. Lovely packaging and price.

I guess I am a lone dissenter here but I just adore this shade! It sort of reminds me of MAC Behave Yourself or MAC Creme Cup a bit. If you like pale opaque colors this is something u might be interested in. It is a silvery baby pink lilac pale opaque color that can be bought at Ulta (some Targets & 1 of our Meijer's also carry NYX; check around, also Ulta.com or NYX's website) w Ulta u qualify $3.50 off $10 DS side of the store almost always so I like buying from Ulta. I don't have a ton of NYX stuff but I'd be so interested in buying more some of it is a little $$$ but then again Maybelline or Loreal or Revlon are similar price pointes. And NYX is cruelty-free! Yay! I think this color looks good w the rest of ur makeup in soft focus (keep eyemakeup nudes-brown eyeliner/mascara & some shimmery bronzer, brows u can do them w an NYX eyebrow powder cake).i love the NYX brow powder cake; round lippies; soft matte lip creams, butter/xtreme butter glosses, plumping glosses, slim lipliners (pretty much lurve all NYX lip!). I am NC15-20 but I don't agree that u have to be cool toned to wear this nor under 21. It's a fun color maybe not office appropriate unless ur an adult film star or dancer, but I find this super cute girly feminine, a refreshing alternative to the vampy dark Transylvania/Copenhagen SMLC colors on the other end of the spectrum.

I was worried about how it would look on me but I wasn't disappointed with this lipstick. It wasn't too pale for me and didn't wash me out it was a vibrant bubblegum pink on me. It is blue-toned but not too blue-toned. The formula was very creamy but it took a few swipes to get an opaque color, I think it lasted almost 2 hours on me before it started wearing off my on the inner part of my lips.

Not jumping for joy over this, although some people may love what I'm not happy with.

Packaging: The tube is round like you would expect haha. Sleek, black, and functional. Good packaging.

Formula: Not a fan. Too creamy and slick. Glides on very smoothly and creamy during application. But the formula is way too slippery and won't hug the lips.

Longevity: About an hour. Not thrilled about that.

Scent: The scent is odd, but I kind of like it. This smells like a floral hand cream or flowery conditioner. Something like fabric softener.

Color: Was not expecting deathly light lips when I purchased this. Veryyy light and white based color. It'd be a great mixing color for other lipsticks, lip liners, lip glosses, etc. If only it would last longer...

Overall, I don't recommend. The formula is too thin, slick, and slippery, which effected the wear time. I blame myself for buying this color because the name was appealing haha. I don't recommended this formula or this color. Get more bang for your buck with the NYX matte lipsticks.

I bought this with the hope of it being the perfect light/nude pink. I found it was way to light, almost white. I could never wear it alone with out looking like the walking dead.
However I really like using this in the center of my lips over another color lipstick to make them apper fuller.

This definitely looks like strawberry milk on the lips. It is not sheer, so it looks terrible on me (NC15-20). It also seems to be a little drier than the other round lipsticks, but that may be my perception because it will show any dryness on the lips. I plan to try it with a darker lipliner or pinker lipgloss on top to see if it can look any better.

I am very fair (nc15) with light blonde hair and green eyes, and I bought this on a whim for $3.99 at target because I thought the light bright pink was perfect. When applied however...it's ALOT lighter than it appears in the tube. And it is very pigmented but shows every dry spot and imperfection on your lips. It is really really creamy though and I love the way it goes on. It looks decent on my skin because I am so pale but I feel like a pornstar if I don't blot and blend it out or tone it down with a gloss. The color is really beautiful for fair skin though.

Like others have said, this is definitely made for a very light skin tone. I am a nw20 (cool-fair) and I am even borderline for this shade. It is very pale pink, so pale it hard to pull off straight out of the tube. What i have found works best is to use a brush or my fingers and put it on for more subdued look. If I use a natural liner it looks very nude.

I wont be purchasing this again simply because it takes too much effort to use it. The packaging is flimsy, as with all of these lippies from this line, and the formula is drying. I would go with something else similar from Revlon's lustrous line or L'Oreal in their pale pinks.

Oh boy, when I was buying this lipstick I was looking at the color in the tube and thought it looked pretty but its actually a very pale pink color and it looks awful on my skin tone. This is also way to pigmented that it looks cakey on the lips and makes wrinkly or dry, crusty lips look awful. Don't get me wrong I love NYX lipsticks but this color looks horrible on me. On the bright side the lipstick is very creamy.

EDIT: Horrible lip color for me, but it makes a nice cream blusher! I tried it as a blush and it looks nice on me. At least I could use it in some way.
