Let's not prolong the suspense. I love this lipstick. You probably already love this lipstick. My boyfriend doesn't like this lipstick, then again he doesn't like wearing lipstick full stop. He does however love it on me.

I've avoid pale shades in the past due to my extreme whiteness (seriously I've had Japanese tourists have their photo taken with me because of it) as I don't want to look even more washed out. However I think the slight apricot tones encourage warmth in my face, rather than waxy vamp skin. It didn't dry out my lips, but in return need to be reapplied several times throughout the day as it melts into my lips.
There is a slight sunscreen smell when applied, but it disappears for me within a few minutes.
Adding to the lemmingness of this lippy is the great posts some of my favourite Aussie beauty bloggers are jotting out on the subject.
Rosemary from Lashes & Lattes did an enchanting Disney Princess homage to Beauty and the Beast's Belle, with the subtle colour complimenting her wide eyes and the best brows I've ever seen. She's also pulled it off with a tan!
Tegan from Tegania's Thoughts used hers to enhance a mid-holiday glow (and boy, does she glow! Gorgeous.) and peachy cheeks.
Stacey from Add to Cart gives some helpful examples of similar shades from other brands if you're still on the fence about going nude and need a point of comparison. She has great shots of the product, much better than my hack efforts.
