I got this lipstick in Bare Nude, and it was absolutely the perfect nude shade for my lips! So glad I found it, as I've been looking for a great nude shade forever. The lipstick has great color payoff and coverage, making it earn its "opaque" branding. Close to matte, but not dull at all. Applied smoothly and easily, and isn't drying. Can look a little cakey when you build up layers, but still looks great overall. Would definitely recommend.
