I saw this lipstick in a blog once I passed a long time wanting it, and now that I have I can say that it's a very weird lipstick. But I like it. At first the orange tone is a little bit off, but not enough neon, a very cold color, but then you blend it a little bit and pink comes out - and in pictures it looks great! So I'd say this color is on the orange-pink verge, very unique. As I said, it's a nice lipstick for when you are going to take lots of pictures.

I love this lipstick. Its my favourite for day to day red wear, still true red but somehow more subtle, maybe its the warmer tones. I can wear this to work and it will stay on all day as long as I don't eat something too greasy. I have very pale pinky skin and this looks just as good on my dark olive skinned friend as it does me.

This is my perfect nude. Never have I ever encountered a lipstick that fit me so much; fit my lips so perfectly that it left me in total awe. I just started getting into MAC lipsticks this year and I thought after Fresh Brew, there couldn't be a more perfect nude for me until Crème Cerise came along. I hate that MAC made this limited edition. I've fallen so head over heels in love with it that it hurts me to even use it now, knowing I'll have to scramble to find another seller of it. Definitely worth every dollar and cent I paid for it. Bring this back now, MAC! I neeed it!!

I love this lipstick! It's really easy to get a crisp line straight from the bullet with this formula. It never gathers or looks dry. It's not moisturising, but it's not drying either. I always prep my lips with MAC Lip Conditioner before I wear their mattes, blot my lips then apply the lipstick. After about 4 hours of wear I dab a tiny bit of Lip Conditioner over the top and that keeps my lips happy. I can skip that step without On my NC20 skintone (I have neutral-to-warm undertones) it looks like a warm-toned red, super flattering and lovely. However on my NC40 friend, it looks straight orange (though just as lovely)! I was shocked to see it's such a chameleon!

I got this as a Back 2 Mac shade, almost as an afterthought - and I am impressed! It's crazy pigmented, and the shade is so flattering - much more so than I expected. It can be hard to get a crisp line straight from the bullet, and one does NEED a clear line with a shade like this. The upside is, it's so matte that I can go outside my natural lip line and it will stay there. It's not drying or hydrating - I dab a little lip conditioner over the top after about 4 hours and I'm good. It really creates a classic, pin-up look - AND it does actually makes my teeth look whiter (no, really!!).

I feel like this IS a pretty lipstick, and the consistency and colour in the tube is lovely. It also seems to look great on everyone else... but me!? It just makes me look a little alien (in a bad way - not a Scarlett Johansson way unfortunately) so for that reason, it's a little regret in buying it.

Lustering has to be one of my favourite lipstick colours from MAC. It is such a perfectly pretty berry-pink (as opposed to a milky pink) that I just love wearing. My only complaint is that as it is a Lustre (not a Frost, as it's described above), it is not all that long-wearing. But I love it so much that I can overlook that one flaw a bit, though I am always on the lookout for something like Lustering but in a more long-lasting formula.

I found that this shade washed out my skin, just too pale for my liking. Not very long wearing at all and found it to be too drying on my lips, so I would recommend a lip primer or moisturise lips with a balm of some sort. Heard so many reviews boosting this shade so wanted to jump on board and try it for myself, now regretting my purchase.
