MAC Nude Lipstick ($16.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “cool nude cream [with a Matte finish].” It’s a medium-dark brown with a gray cast–almost slightly rosy-toned at certain angles–and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage, and it felt very creamy, even for a matte (which is different than a Retro Matte!). It lasted for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Shitaki is warmer, shimmery. MAC Double Shot is warmer, richer. Guerlain Giny is much lighter. Bobbi Brown Uber Nude is rosier. See comparison swatches. I think MAC’s permanent range may have some similar shades to this, but I’m not familiar enough with some of the browner shades to say for sure, though.
