I would describe this lipstick as a “pale pink”. It is a very light cool-toned, blue-based pink that can look gorgeous on alabaster and fair skins. However if you are the owner of light to medium or deep skin tone, this lipstick can either wash you out or otherwise be non complementing. I ended up exchanging the color, since I have a light to medium skin tone and dark hair and this lipstick simply looked too pale on me.
I did enjoy the formula. Smooth with a beautiful satin finish, it glided smoothly on my lips without tagging or settling in the lips lines. The color pay-off is opaque and the color you see in the tube is the color you get on the lips. It lasted for four hours on me without the need to reapply. It was neither moisturizing, nor drying and did not leave a stain when I removed it. The smell is a very classic lipstick smell–rosy with hints of vanilla.
