My skin tone: light/medium, neutral-cool. Superb formulation, and absolutely beautiful color (probably the prettiest of all the PC sheer cream lipsticks) but too warm (peach/tan) for my cooler skin tone. I should add that the PC description fails to mention that this particular color has a very subtle shimmer (it's gorgeous!). I wish all of the colors did, but unfortunately, those that are described as "shimmer" are actually quite "frosty," and consequently are not so beautiful, nor wearable as is Nude Illusion.

I'm giving this product four lippies because overall, it is a nice lipstick.

I like that it doesn't have a strong smell and applies nicely. Doesn't dry my lips out either.

I have fair/light cool toned skin. This colour is too brown for me. On the website, it came across as being more pink, but its more brown in real life. Its also a very small lipstick, so not much product for price. So only four lippies. I would give it 3.5 if I could.

Wow, I'm so torn! This is the perfect nude color--I really, really like it. Most nudes wash out my brown skin, but this one has a teeny pinch of rose, peachy sheen. BUT, I agree with the previous reviewer about how it sits on the lips. I applied it after the Paula Invisble lip liner and it does look a little tacky--for some reason it won't sink in. If I can find a way around that, I'll buy the full tube (had sample). If not, well, back on the hunt...too bad.

Just like Paula's other Sheer Cream lipsticks, this one isn't sheer and is very drying. I thought this would be a perfect pale nude pink shade but it was too orange. The color has way too much shimmer and is unflattering against my pale skin. I only bought a sample (which is a great idea, wish other companies would do the same) and I am so glad I didn't waste my money. Wouldn't buy a full size but I am going to try the clear version of this lipstick.
