At first, this seems a little too "porn star" pale pink & glittery for me. I had the same reaction to MAC's Charm Factor & Dainty Cake (but now I want them back lol). Once on, this becomes a lovely frosty pinky peachy color. Still very frosty, so great for a night out or the summer (at least for me).

The frostiness is hard to describe -I see iridescent silver …

This is my HG, go-to color!! In the tube, this looks like a glittery brown with a hint of pink. A good summer color, but a tad muddy looking. I almost passed it up for that reason - wrong!! The gold glitter becomes a lovely shimmer. The muddy brown becomes a muted brick-bronzy color. Not red, not brown, but a gorgeous combo, great for a date night with my honey, great with jeans for the grocery …Read more

For me, I would not repurchase simply because I don't imagine ever using it up, but I would buy it again due to color & texture. Clear as mud, right?

As others have stated this is a pinky brown neutral with gold glittery. Some Chanel "glitter" lipsticks are simply shimmery on the lips, this one is more obvious. Not disco glitter lips, but definitely more noticeable …

I love this color!! In the tube, it looks like a shimmery generic slightly coppery pinky-brown. A nice summer neutral easily overlooked. On my lips this rocks! It becomes a slightly shimmery (not glittery) bronzy pink that is tough to describe. Brightens up my face but isn't bold. Neutral enough for day, but applied a little heavier, looks sultry at night. A gorgeously rich, shimmery MLBB …Read more

I love Chanel lipsticks, but not all colors. I was afraid that this would be too Pink. I also have an issue with many pink shades turning BRIGHT pink on me after 10 minutes, so I tried this on in the store, walked around & shopped for a while, then came back to check. I bought it right then.

A lovely MLBB plummy/mauve pink, with a very slight brown undertone to keep it from being …

I like this well enough to keep it, but I would not repurchase. Too many other similar colors out there... The Rouge Hydrabase line is a little too thick/heavy for me, and luckily it's creamy enough to not cake up.

In the tube, and on my lips, this is a pretty browned pink. Slightly shimmery, but not frosty. It's a generic MLBB kind of color. It's a pretty every day use …

On me this is a very pretty coppery brick red. Bolder than MAC's Luv & Lust, as it is a little darker and a little frostier. The frost is NOT over the top. This is a great color for summer with a tan. I wear it a lot at night, not quite as much during the day.

On me, this is a MLBB color. Almost exactly the same shade, but just slightly browner. This is a muted brick, very pretty, with very slight brown undertones. This is very creamy, but has great staying power. Someone called this a "serious" color... I would consider it more "every day"... nothing fancy, nothing frosty, nothing that screams LIPSTICK... but it gives a great …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Slimshine in Lovey-Dove

On me this is a SLIGHTLY more red version of Luv & Lust. As others have described, a muted brick with gold frost. A very natural look, the Slimshines are naturally a bit "gloosy" looking, but they don't last long on the lips. I wear this year round - great in winter with darker clothing, a great look in spring & summer for a pop of color with a neutral face.

One of my HG colors!!! I have issues with some red/pink shades turning BRIGHT on me after about 10 minutes. This one does not. Gorgeous hard to describe color - a frosted bronzed muted maroon/plum. The frost is just right, not too much, but it's there - nicely subtle. Lovely for day, but also striking at night. I'll be sad when this is gone...
