Obsessed with this colour! It's so in right now and I was worried it would look strange on me since I'm quite pale (NC30) but it is gorgeous. I use it with the matching lip liner and I like it best with a smokey eye for a night out since it's a bit much for the day. It lasts a long time though can be a bit drying and I find that it ends up in the middle of my lips after I've eaten, etc. but I just reapply.

Love this shade and the formula as well. About me NW20, blonde hair, green eyes, very cool undertones for reference. This shade works really well with my colouring. The formula itself is not drying at all. It lasts but not super long like other mattes. I find that with the lip pencil it does last a very long time. It's enough where I am very happy with it. I love the shade it reminds me of the 90's and it's a great shade that works with a lot of eye looks so I'm very pleased. I like to use this when I use my Naked Heat palette. The shades in the palette compliment this lipstick well imo. it's a great shade that doesn't dry out my lips at all. Nor does it emphasize texture on me so I'm very happy with this lippie. Definitely a repurchase for me.

Love the color, dislike the formula. I have several different MAC lipsticks, most of them matte, and this is by far the worst of them. It barely lasts anything, even after three layers of lipstick covered by thin layers of translucent powder, fading around the middle of my bottom lip after about 15 minutes, which is unusual and disappointing for a MAC product. I've been solving this issue by putting on another layer of a neutral coloured matte lipstick on top of it, which isn't a huge problem, but alters the color slightly and it's a bit troublesome.

I love love love this colour. I am an NC15 with blue eyes and it absolutely make my eyes pop. I get so many compliments when I wear this beauty, favorite MAC lipstick ever. I love the 90s Vibe it brings 😍

I was intrigued by the greige and nude lip colours for awhile now, so I figured why not? Although, on most people it would appear like corpse lips, on my NC30-45 skin tone it doesn't look half bad. It's a very interesting shade and not one that most people would like to wear but I am usually draw to the strange and unusual, as I myself am strange and unusual. I usually just wear the lipstick with eye liner on my eyes.
For this lipstick, I use it in conjunction with the MAC prep & prime, stone lip liner. It does last a bit longer with these extra steps but the middle of the lips do need to be touched up after drinking or eating.
Overall, I do enjoy this lipstick and would repurchase if i finished the tube.

I didn't think this would look good on me but it does. For reference I have medium olive skin (runs cool in winter, warmer in summer) and dark hair/eyes. It's a unique (some might say scary...) deep brownish taupe shade but I really think a lot of ladies and gents could pull it off.

In my opinion this looks best with a medium to full face of makeup. You don't necessarily have to cake it on, but a little balance on the eyes and cheeks takes the look from 'holy weird lipstick' to 'damn she's working that weird lipstick.' I like it with a little contour, a done eye, and not-too-matte skin. However, you do you.

The formula is a rough one though...Stone applies creamy-matte and opaque, but it's one of the chalkier MAC mattes and it's pretty high-maintenance. Highly recommend a liner, either MAC Stone or the NYX dupe. I still haven't picked one of those up and have been using a matchy eyeliner but I definitely need to upgrade. Back to the lipstick - if it doesn't fade quickly, it'll dry your lips right up and look like garbage. So be aware of these caveats! Even so, it looks SURPRISINGLY GOOD and you should at least try it on next time you're at MAC :)

Pretty color I fell in love with styled in sepia and since it was LE I now purchase stone as a replacement it looks good on all skin tones.

Love it. Very unique and stand out shade.

Definitely not for the faint of heart. Matte yet creamy.

I only wish it lasted longer. Once i have a drink, i need to reapply so it is necessary to pair it with Stone lip liner. Regardless of that, i would repurchase in a heartbeat.

Oh my yes... I can definitely understand why this shade is an acquired taste, but it just does it for me. I am an NC40, but my girlfriend wears NC25 and it looks just as great on her. I wear this when I'm in the mood for a little drama. This shade can come off a bit goth so it's important to go with a very warm look on the rest of the face if that's not what you're going for (heavier hand with the bronzer.) Love the texture, great staying power, goes on smooth and creamy (all the usual, lovely things you can expect from a Mac matte lipstick.) No base colour/blending of colours, I love it just the way it is.
Dupe Alert: I wear this with the NYX Slim Pencil in the shade 1000 years (more greyish) OR Latte (more brownish) and they both work perfectly. $4 vs. $20 for the matching Mac Stone lip liner puhleeeaase

I am an NC45 and initially I did not like stone after trying it on. I would see other WOC rock the hell out of this lipstick both light and dark, but when I tried it on my darkly pigmented lips, I looked like I had been smoking all of my life. However, I did not give up on this lipstick. I realize my lips can be a little too cool, a little to grey at times; therefore, it made Stone an ashy mess. In order to make it work, I started using Mac's Stripdown as a base and voila, magic!! It warmed it up and made it more complimenting to my complexion without losing its uniqueness.
