MAC How Tropical Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "nude beige." It's a yellowed, peachy-beige with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a consistency that applied easier after a couple of seconds of warming-up against the natural lip. It applied somewhat unevenly and looked streaky, while the color settled into lip lines from the get-go and only worsened over the next two and a half hours. It was slightly drying as well.
