This is a very light pink. On the day I bought it I ran around Sephora looking for anything that came close--nothing did. Every other very light pink was darker and/or more coral-y and/or pulled peach on me and/or was TOO nude. I think this pink is pretty darn neutral in undertone--it's way cooler than comparable shades (of which I can't name, because nothing came close enough to remember). NW13/15, YSL TE B20, Soft Summer (cool/neutral/muted) coloring, and it looks right and doesn't wash me out despite being lighter than my natural lips. I would love a similar shade that is just a HAIR bluer--but everything else on the market (...at my local sephora) at this color value is redder, yellower, or both, never bluer.
Anyway so i love this color. It wears well with a balm or thin gloss, I like it with YSL Rouge Volupte Shines but it might be too diluted in a thicker gloss and become streaky. It is very comfortable but not super longwearing. Medium wear? About the same wear as MAC St Germain. Similar texture too. No feathering.
The finish is luminous, idk how anyone would call it matte, even Bite with their "matte" amuse bouches.
