One of the best nude lipstick for women of color. Touch paired with chestnut or plum (mostly chestnut) is perfect. To much on the lips isn't needed as it is nude ladies. It looks so natural on my lips. Very good to wear to work or just down the road. It also glides on very easily and I just love the smell.

This is such a great nude for people with medium to dark complexion OH LORD this is my absolut favourite. This finish is amazing and so moisturizing I've been wearing this everyday for a few days now. It's very creamy and easy to apply.

I absolutely love this lipstick!! So far, it's the perfect nude that I've come across that doesn't wash me out or dry my lips (NC30/NW25). I just wish it lasted longer. But because the formula is a luster, I like how the sheerness also allows my natural lip color to seep through. Would definitely purchase this again....in fact, I'm considering buying multiple backups in case MAC decides to discontinue this gem.

This was the first MAC lipstick I ever bought. I don't have many lipsticks from MAC because I tend to look best in warm toned browns, and they seem to specialize in either bright colors, or pale nudes. I have fair skin, hazel green eyes, and light auburn hair. Touch is a peachy brown that complements my coloring perfectly! It may look dark in the tube, but it is the lustre formulation, so it goes on fairly sheer. I find that I've been wearing this color almost every day now that Fall is here. It works well with a number of different lip pencils,,depending on which color you want to pull out of it. To keep it brown, Stripdown is the perfect warm brown pencil, not too dark. To highlight the tawny peach tones, Hover is slightly darker with coppery brown tones and outlines the color beautifully. For a redder neutral, I use Spice, its the same depth of color, but has a pinky red undertone that brings out the reddish brown in Touch. Touch is described as a peachy brown, but compared to other browns that I have, it does have some pink in it as well. That is why it is such a versatile color. It is beautiful alone, and can be used to match many looks by simply changing the lip pencil you use with it. Good lipstick colors for redheads are hard to find. I thought a company like MAC would have many options. They do not, at least for my taste, but this is a great one, and it has been part of the permanent collection for quite awhile now, so hopefully, it is not going anywhere!!

I was lucky enough this week to find two/three lippies that are really great for me. I suddenly got the bug (again) to find a nude that would work for me. I've tried a few before with disappointing results. The first I found, after watching a few YouTube videos, was Maybelline's Truffle Tease. I wanted a kind of taupy, mushroomy shade, to see how it would look. This was the one out of five drugstore shades that worked really, really well on me! Not as a complete nude, but as a MLBB shade. I look weird with a truly nude lip.

But... it has a chemical smell and slightly weird feel on the lips and I decided that since I'd be wearing the shade a lot, I should find a high-quality dupe that wouldn't inflict this smell on me. (I'll keep Truffle Tease as a backup.) This led me to the MAC counter, where I swatched a lot of colors next to Truffle Tease and found two that I really wanted. One was Touch, which was a perfect dupe and has a wonderful feel and smell (Lustre formula). The other was Tea Ceremony. After wearing Tea Ceremony in different lights I see that it is actually lighter than Touch and is more of a nude on me. And it looks good! This is really great. I guess for my skintone (very fair, olive tendencies, darker when tan), shades that work well on African and Indian skin are good. It's nice to finally know what will work on me -- cool brownish colors. They don't look brown on my lips, just natural. I can get the same shade as Tea Ceremony (which is being discontinued) by putting concealer on my lips and then applying Touch.

In case you're looking for something slightly darker, Spirit tempted me as well. It is a shade or two darker on the same spectrum.

Unless I put on balm under this, I get a white line on my lower lip. I also have to make sure there are no flakes on my lips, otherwise they'll be magnified.

This is an amazing nude lipstick. I'm NW47 and it's hard to find nude lipsticks that fit my skin tone so when I found this I was so happy. I pair it with a dark brown lip liner and it looks perfect :) It's not matte, has the right amount of sheen and is slightly moisturizing as well

This has been my go to nude since 1998. Against my nc45 skintone it compliments me perfectly. Its a lustre formula and its a bit drying on my lips so I apply a lip balm before application. This looks beautiful paired up with lip liner in chestnut (also by MAC as well) for that perfect ombre lip look. I can't remember how many tubes I've went thru of this shade....lost count. So if you're a WOC this is the perfect gateway nude shade. It was the first one that brought me to the other shades such as Mocha. Don't hesitate with this one. MAC better not discontinue this one.

Touch is a neutral brown shade which is a lovely midtone. I am very pale, but have very dark hair and hoped that this would look natural on me, like a MLBB look with a touch of something different. The texture is smooth, as you would expect from a lustre lipstick. Lustre is my favourite finish, which is why I chose it in the first place.

I wanted to love this colour so much but it just wasn't for me. At all. It went on this thick bland brown colour and it made me look so washed out. I hated it, and was so disappointed. I decided to give it to my Hispanic friend, and this proved that it was just my skintone that was the problem. On my friend, it looks smokin'. She looks so gorgeous in it, like her perfect MLBB shade.

I would never again purchase this product but it was just a case of the tone disagreed with me more than anything. But on my friend it is literally the best lipstick in the world. So if you have a darker skin tone, ladies, this is your perfect lipstick. If you are pale like me, avoid.
