I've been curious about Paula's Sheer Cream Lipstick for some time now, so I finally just ordered samples of all the shades to try them out before committing $10 to any of them. Nude Illusion is the perfect sheer blend of pink, peach, and tan, making it the best nude lipstick I have ever tried. Nudes lip shades are hard for me with my very fair, cool-toned skin and pigmented lips, but this actually works. It's a great everyday color, and I think I'll probably purchase it.
UPDATE: Upon testing it a bit more, I'm not so sure about this shade. It becomes too warm for me rather easily, and it doesn't meld with my natural lip color well--it looks like another color sitting on top of my lips. I don't think I'll purchase this now.
