HG HG HG STATUS. I have been searching high and low for a comfortable lip color that wasn't thick and gloopy (lip glosses/lipsticks) This (on my NC25/30 skin) makes my pale red lips look polished, natural and effortless, yet incredibly put together. I tried Revlon's balm stain in 'Sultry' but the look was very intense and pigmented, more of a mauve/brown. This color is absolutely perfect. I find it most comfortable applying this over a thin layer of clear lip balm. I was in between this and 'Nude Pink' but after a quick google search in the middle of Ulta, I figured this shade was a smudge darker and more suitable for the color of my lips. Of course I will repurchase for the price, but if they made a jumbo lip pencil in this shade I'd buy it ASAP.
