I tend to be leery of nude lip colors. They sometimes work well on me, and sometimes just disappear. This almost disappears, but does leave a slight tan-gold shimmer on my lips. It's similar, in many ways, to the Iced Mocha Round Lipstick and the Chrome and Pearl eyeshadows of the same name. I don't think that I'll replace this when it runs out, and I don't use it all that often; but I don't regret buying it. It's like some of my gold-brown Buxoms, in that it adds the shimmering sparkle without putting down too much color.
