This makes me feel like Snooki when I'm wearing this a bit lol it's a bit OTT but I love it w my pink MAC lipstick/Lipglass like Creme Cup, Angel, Snob, & St Germain. It is a very pale baby pink opaque no shimmers nor glitters (um, hi, Chanel!). This cancels out my entire lips if I want them to be & to do the pink Kim Kardashian's lips (or Snooki), but u can sheer it out a bit too & not have concealer/dead lips. It's not for ev1, I don't see why buying it if it's not ur color then do a negative review. It is what it is. Grain of salt time. Like I said this isn't ev1's cup of tea. Rather silly to buy it when you know you hate concealer lips or don't own any icy blue based white flash baby pink lipstick/Lipglass. I'm not singling any individual out but caveat emptor is always the rule in buying makeup. & if u can't afford MAC gr8 but don't post here saying how ELF or wnw is "better" simply based on price pointe alone it's not fair to this wonderful lipliner! If you liked this u will prob also dig MAC Naked l/l it's more peachy. I had problems finding In Synch. First off Maccosmetics.com didn't have it. I called them. Then i paid a visit to a local yocal MAC counter no such animal. So finally I got it off Macys.com. That's a good site for MAC makeup (& u can get a Macy's credit card yay!). I'm soooo glad this l/l made its way into my life. MAC lipliners are lyfe not some janky drugstore lipliners! :-)

I do really like this lip liner since it is a very nice nude color but still a lot of pink in it.
I reviewed it together with some photos here;

and here http://www.louiseadolphson.se/simple-make-up-look/
I think it looks great when you have a bit of a tan because it can look a bit too yellow/orange otherwise.
I also like to apply it in the middle of the lips to make the lips look a bit more plump. I would imagine this lip liner would be gorgeous also with a darker skin tone!

basically its a "concealer lip liner" (im nw15 -nw 20 for reference). im really disappointed. its really drying, you cant fill your lips evenly and its color makes the natural color of your lips disappear..
of course i wont be bying it again, but since i have it, i tried to find a way to use it. so far, the only way i found to apply this (fill your lips) evenly is: if u apply it and then rub your your lips with your finger, the way that you would put a lip balm / lip gloss (in a pot) with your finger, it blends and the color is distributed equally -there are no patches with more or less color. then you put on a bit of a lip balm, because it leaves your lips really drying and you can pair it with your lipstick (it goes well with creme cup and sweetie) and if you want you can put a bit of lipgloss on top. since its kind of a "concealer lip liner", it accentuates the color of the lipstick so it would be better to use it with a light color lipstick, or if you want your lips to "stand out" with a brighter color.

I really enjoy this lip liner. I have very fair skin and blue eyes and this colour looks pale and peachy against my skin. I could see this looking totally white or darker skin tones. I pair this with myth lipstick and I get a gorgeous pale, peachy nude. It's expensive but I have yet to find any comparable products/colours. Thumbs up!

Ehhh could take it or leave it.. Nothing great about this.. It looked a lot more baby pink in the store, in natural light, it leans a slight bit orange (if you're cool toned like myself). Have a drugstore lip liner that's the exact same color but better; won't purchase again

I have pale skin in the winter, NC15 and this liner pulled very orange on my skin. I would recommend this to anyone darker than me, I'll get more use out of this in the summer though for sure. It is very creamy

While I was swatching liners at MAC, I was automatically drawn to In Synch. It's a bright, yellow toned pink. It looked like a liner that would be perfect for my peachy pink lipsticks. Upon bringing my nifty new purchase home, I realized the color is much lighter than I thought it was. Darn that tricky department store lighting! I thought it would be something like Illamasqua Obey in Lip Liner form, but there are absolutely no coral tones present in In Synch. The brightness and yellow tone give the illusion of a coral tone, but nope - it's simply pink. In fact, the color is actually lighter than my lips. Speaking for myself, I don't have a very distinct lip outline, so lip liner is a necessity for me. I typically like using liners that are a bit warmer than my natural lip color, or a color very similar (mocha, caramel pinks & nudes, etc.) Considering this shade is actually lighter than my lips, it's not going to provide me with that slightly darker border for my lip that I like, but it does work well in a couple of other ways. It's a pretty good color for those who wear very nude lip colors. If you like Creme d' Nude, Myth or any similar shades, this may be a good choice for you for a subtle liner. It can also be applied slightly outside your natural lip line to give the effect of fuller lips. The lip liner itself, is a beautiful color and the way I like to wear it, is all over my lips, with a nude, pink or peach lip gloss over it. For my skin tone, it makes a great pinky-nude lip. When using this lip liner, I do suggest applying a coat of lip balm prior (or on top) as the texture is a bit dry. Even though it's slightly drier than other MAC Lip Liners, I don't find that it dries out my lips at all. I always wear lipgloss over it and it works great. My fav combo is In Synch all over my lips with MAC Prr Lipglass on top!

This is a pretty pale pink (almost whitish) liner that I use mostly when I want bubblegum pink lips. I use this mostly with Viva Glam Gaga, Of Royalty, Pretty Please, Nude Rose, Saint Germain. I feel like Nicki Minaj when I wear it. Has ok staying power. I just got it because it's such a unique color.

i went to MAC a year ago to get my makeup done and the make up artist used in synch in my lips with viva glam gaga (pink) and baby sparks dazzle glass, I was automatically in love. It's a bright, yellow toned pink. It looked like a liner that would be perfect for my pink lipsticks.. It's a pretty good color for those who wear very nude lip colors. If you like Creme d' Nude, this may be a good choice. its beautiful color and the way I like to wear it, is all over my lips, with a nude, pink lipstick. Even though it's slightly drier than other MAC Lip Liners, I don't find that it dries out my lips at all.

Why purchase if it's not you color? I don't understand some reviews here. I always make sure that I like the color and that it matches me before I buy it.

Anyways, this pencil is perfect. I mainly own nude lipsticks just like Myth, Viva Glam Gaga, Angel, Creme Cup, Shy Girl etc.
I love it so much because it works for every nude lipstick I own.
Sometimes I even use it on it's own. It's not as creamy as other liners by MAC but it looks just as nice on my lips. But I have to say that I actually prefer creamier lip pencils. It can emphasize dry lips but I don't have that issue since I always use lip conditioner.

I'm pretty fair, around NC15-NC20, so it doesn't look too light on me.
I wouldn't recommend it to darker skintones unless you want to look like Nicki Minaj.
