Such a pretty spring/summer color.
It's very flattering on my NW10 skin tone. I think this color would work on a variety of skin tones, from pale to deep & cool to warm. It's not the most pigmented Mac matte lipstick I have used, though it's far from a sheer lustre or glaze. More pigmented lips may need 2-3 layers, but it builds up nicely without looking too thick on the lips. The finish is described as a matte with pearl. The pearl is very subtle, I don't even notice it. I think the finish is more like a satin, without being thick like the satins can be. It's not as drying as most mattes. It wears a really long time too, about 3 hours if I'm really eating & drinking, 5-6 hours without much eating or drinking. It stains a bit unevenly, a pet peeve of mine, & I wish I could give it 4.5 stars for that reason. If I blot & apply a light second layer, it stains a bit more evenly. I really like the formula & the color. Some say this is a cross between a pink & red. On me, it's a deep fushia. I was a bit over bright pinks, but this one has enough depth that it doesn't feel outdated. I hope it sticks around, it's a fun color for spring/summer nights. « less
