This is a great browned-bronze on my NC42 complexion. It is pretty opaque for a glaze formula and I think in many ways it looks like a medium frost formula. When it catches the light I sometimes see a hint of berry underneath the brown. I'm a neutral leaning NC42 and I don't feel this colour pulls heavily cool or heavily warm.
It's a nice shade that lasts well on the lips …

On my NC42 complexion, this is a warm, very frosted, very golden bronze with barely discernible peach undertones. I like it but it's less versatile than some other MAC Frosts, simply because it's a very obvious, striking shade. You need to be in the mood to wear it, and it's not a 'no-brainer' lipstick - it does stand out.
Applied sheerly, I can see this working as a …

The description below of this being a mid-tome brownish taupe with slight plum undertones nails it. That's exactly how it looks on my neutral leaning NC42 complexion. The plum tones stop it from looking too ashy or grey.
I can see how this might not work on some skin tones, because the brown makes it a little more challenging to pull off.
On me this is a very natural …

On my NC42 complexion, this is a golden-browned-bronze with a hint of pink, that leans towards the cool side. Keeping in mind that I'm more of a neutral NC42, I would say that this is a great MLBB (my-lips-but-better) shade with a medium amount of frost -- i.e. with more obvious frost than MAC Frenzy, but not too much that it looks very metallic or really unnatural.
I have trouble …

This is a very pretty golden pink shimmery lipstick on my NC42 complexion. It's a MAC Frost lipstick, but it does not look too frosted or dated on my complexion - it's more 'glow-y' than 'frosty'.
It's excellent as a nude lipstick, or a 'my lips but better' (MLBB) one even though it's a frost. I have trouble finding wearable nudes or MLBB …

This is a mid toned, neutral red on my NC42 complexion. It doesn't lean too cool or two warm, which makes it a great red to match different eye makeup and so on. It's a matte formulation and kind of retro looking and lasts better than a glossy shade might, which is great.
I think this could be worn by people with many different complexions / colouring, simply because it's a …

This is definitely a mid-toned berry with brown undertones on my NC42 complexion. It's quite a sheer product, from the 'Lustre' line of MAC Lippies. I think it's a good every day colour because it's a subtle, toned down red. It feels very nice on application and doesn't dry out my lips.
I think you'd have to reapply this more often than a Cremesheen or a …

This is a deep brick red with berry tones on my NC42 complexion. So many reds in MAC's permanent collection suit me, that it's easy for me to say they're all 'classic reds'.
My complexion, although warm, is kind of a 'neutral-warm' -- and this colour doesn't pull either hugely warm or cool on me, so it's a very wearable red.
The texture …

Jan/03/2017

I'm an NC42 and on me this red is a bright 'poppy red' that's slightly glossy. I can't really see any obvious yellow / orange in it, but it does lean towards the warm side. However this is not all that obvious on my complexion -- I don't think it's as warm as an actual poppy flower, it's more neutral than that.
I wouldn't repurchase because I …

This is a deep red with very slight brown undertones (not at all muddy) and a barely visible sheen/shimmer. It's quite a classic red on my NC42 complexion. I can see why some people describe this as a brick red, but on me it's a brick red with no orange or muddy tones, nor is it magenta or pinkish.
I like the cremesheen formula, it's not as drying as matte MACs. This colour is …
