I wear C3 in the MAC Face & Body foundation, which roughly translates to about an NC30 with light olive neutral undertones.

The best way I would describe MAC's Hug Me is that the colour is very similar to the infamous Velvet Teddy, except that Hug Me is shiny and sheer as it is a Lustre finish. Just like Velvet Teddy, I don't like wearing this without a lip liner as it can wash me out. This is a pretty flattering, slightly cool-leaning nude pink lipstick. As it is a Lustre formula it's quite comfortable to wear and glides onto the lips with ease. The trade-off is that this does wear off quite easily after meals, so expect to touch up (it is basically a lip gloss in lipstick format).

The reason I'm giving it only 3 lippies is that it doesn't really blow me away - there are other MAC lipsticks that I prefer on my skintone over Hug Me, so I would probably not repurchase this if I ever use it up.

Classic Mac Nude Color great for anybody.. I do put two swipes on my lips and I also suggest wearing a lip primer to make it last longer otherwise it’s gone after a few sips of coffee, water, etc... it’s pretty sheer so I will wear while it’s so hot outside and then look for a better nude lipstick for fall..

This is a gorgeous, neutral colour, perfect by itself for a more casual look or with liner (I like it with Whirl) for a fuller look. It's lustre, so pretty sheer. I put on two coats and it applies just the right amount of colour. Sometimes, I cover my lips with concealer first and then the colour payoff is better but more nude. the colour is similar to Modesty but more sheer.

I think Hug Me is universally flattering, it looks great on fair to dark skin... I'm nw25 and it works for me.. I have over 25 MAC lipsticks, but only have 2 from the lustre line, and need to get more, because I didn't realize how much I like this finish... I'm 47 yo, so most of my MAC lippies are satin, creme sheen, or amplified finish. I only have a few matte, as It's not really my favorite finish on mature skin, but I will wear a matte lip out at night sometimes. Hug Me is the perfect nudish/taupey brown that doesn't look too brown. Definitely recommend.

Lovely colour, slightly darker than my own lips, little bit shiny but not overly. Looks lovely with a lighter nude lipstick underneath.

This is my go-to lipstick for work and special occasions. I'm nc42 with rosey/pigmented lips and this gives enough coverage that it's not totally opaque or too sheer. It lasts for about an hour until it fades and I have to reapply which I don't mind. I would describe the colour as a pink beige, it's one of the few nude lipsticks that does not wash me out (yipee!). For more dimension I wear it with a darker lip liner like nyx sandy beige or rimmel tiramisu.

I'm an NC45 (winter) and NC50 (summer) and this is HANDS DOWN my favorite lipstick of all time. I apply this stuff like it's chap stick. It's what I reach for when I want a "nude" or neutral lip. I have two tubes; one for the car and one for the purse.

I will never be without Hug Me.

I love the lustre formula its the only one from mac that doesnt dry out my lips. About the color is a pretty mlbb color but its still a little cool tone for my liking (I'm nc10-15 for reference), i'll go for patisserie next. ;)

NC40-42 for reference, medium dark/tan/dark tan skin with yellow undertones.

I have pigmented lips and the dark parts of my lips are the exact same color of Hug Me which is a rosy, mauvey, brown-pink, nude color. It slightly darkens my lips and gives me a sort of dark nude color that is very natural on me. Many people can get away with this by using it as a 90's lip color. All I have to do for a 90's lip on me is to pair it with a darker lip liner and then it is the perfect brown 90's lip on me. I normally pair it by itself straight from the tube without looking and I know it looks good for it is very natural and goes with any eye makeup. I would call this a "must have" nude from MAC.

It is a Lustre lipstick from MAC and it feels creamy on the lips, not at all drying, with a satin finish(not too shiny, not matte). It is not terribly expensive compared to Guerlain, Chanel and Dior and I would buy this again.
