MAC Little Buddha Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "bright peachy pink." It's a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a silver pearl. It looked warmer swatched than applied, even against my skin tone. The texture was noticeably gritty from the amount of shimmer in it, and it tended to emphasize lip lines and settled into them two hours into the four hour wear time. It was semi-opaque, and it was more opaque than most of the other shades. It was slightly drying as well. Bobbi Brown Pink Flush (LE, $25.00) is lighter. YSL Caress Pink (9) (P, $34.00) is less shimmery, brighter, warmer. MAC What a Feeling! (LE, $20.00) is lighter, glossier. Givenchy Rose Taffetas (201) (P, $36.00) is less shimmery, warmer, glossier.
