This color is beautiful. The finish is smooth and moisturizing without being overly “slippery” and shiny. I think it will be fairly long-wearing, which is nice. I have very light skin with blue eyes and red hair. For me, it’s darker than a nude shade but still very subtle and flattering. On me, it reads a bit more pink without as much coral as in the pictures. It brightens my complexion but looks very natural. It will be a good “everyday” color for me. I also have to add that I had a slight problem with my order, and Red Apple was very responsive and fixed the problem immediately. Thank you to Jay Harper for being so helpful and kind. I’m very grateful for Red Apple. I’ve always loved lipstick, and when I got my celiac diagnosis four years ago, I felt compelled to toss all of my old ones which might have contained gluten. Being able to purchase high-quality lipstick that is safe and cruelty-free has made celiac easier to handle.
