The packaging is so gorgeous and fancy, but it is what I love about it the most... I can see why the rouge voluptes are popular as the pigment it is intense and they feel creamy and luxurious. Because it is so creamy it applies well even if your lips are not in peak and moist condition. This is my first and only RV so far and unfortunately I don't think this shade is the best for me. It is definitely not beige but a pretty baby pink nude shade without any blue or purple undertones, which nearly always ruin baby pinks for me. It washes me out and I feel like it would look better on tanned skin. I can only wear it with a darker lip liner and when I am doing a smokey eye, even if it is only a soft one. The colour is so rich and I wouldn't want to swipe this generously on the lips - a few dabs/presses on the lips and some blending is all you need. I barely use any product each application, which means it'll last a good while. I don't know about the other shades but nude beige does not last very well. Well, it is average but as soon as you take a drink, even just one sip it pretty much disappears. I wouldn't repurchase this shade but I would consider purchasing one in a different colour.
