I'm so happy that I'm not the only one who doesn't think this lipstick is the "perfect nude" after looking at recent reviews. I've actually repurchased this once, since the one I had and was forming my opinion was very old, so I decided to buy a "fresh" one. Well, it's the same.
I find this shade drying compared to some of the other shades, and when I apply it, it tugs at my lips. I can get around that, but it's the COLOR that I think is very deceiving. Everywhere on the web, pinterest etc.. this color shows up brown-nude. On me, and even when I swatch it - it's straight up pink. I'm extremely olive, yellow-toned, so maybe this is why it runs so pink, but it looks like other folks seem to be having that issue as well.
I hate pink lipstick, so this is not for me and every time I think to try it, I immediately wipe it off because it's pink and NOT ME. I also do not think it's the "perfect nude" for everyone. Not everyone's skin tone is blue-based and light.
I did find a Megalast lipstick "nude" that 100% fulfills in my mind and skin tone, my nude lipstick for me - shade 983B Never Nude. Love love love this shade.
