Unfortunately for me I find the colour a bit stark against my skin tone and I always feel the need to tone it down slightly when I wear it. The shade is described as a ‘light neutral pink’ which I would say is pretty accurate for MAC as sometimes they tend to use some cryptic sounding shade descriptions! On me, it looks very cartoon like so I definitely have to layer it with something else to make it less in your face and barbie looking.
The finish of this lipstick is satin which seems similar to matte but with a bit more of a sheen to it. This is definitely one of the most pigmented lipsticks I own, although I do find it quite streaky when you first start applying but it does seem to even itself out eventually. I found this colour very similar to Saint Germain lipstick just a lot more matte looking. I think this would suit paler skin tones a lot more than mine, but I have found layering a another shade on top works perfectly. ♥
