I would have NEVER thought this was a color I could pull off, but it actually looks nice against my super pale (Bobbi Brown Alabaster) skin. It has just enough pink in it that it doesn't clash. My only issue is it is really difficult to get it even on my lips in one layer. I have to put some on, blot, and layer on more to get even coverage. I have found that if I use MAC Lasting Sensation lip pencil under it, then it goes on smoother. The color lasts quite a long time on me too, but it can be a bit drying.
