First, I adore super matte looks (and boy, is this MATTE). Second, I like lipsticks with a delightful scent. BUT: I hate colors that are so far from what they should be they are not even CLOSE! This is the most horrid color I think I have seen. It is a bright, almost glow-in-the-dark coral. It is so awful, I cannot even think of something to compare it to (perhaps the flesh of a watermelon would be somewhat similar). I will be returning it for a full refund. No wonder no local stores keep this item in stock. Whoever thought of this... NOTHING in nature would ever give the impression of "naked" to this color. I am so disappointed because I really was seeking a deep, matte lipstick to wear under my various glosses.
I like this, but the color is a little different than it appears online. On my lips it looks very similar to my skin color, & I like it to top it w/a raspberry lip gloss. It is great for when you're not wearing a lot of make-up, so you want a more neutral lip tone. I'd say the color is a pinkish cantaloupe tone & it's extremely matte. Topping it w/a shiny gloss gives you the staying power of the matte plus the pretty-ness of the gloss!
