    MAC Speed Dial lipstick

    So I recently posted a thread about cool toned pink l/s for WOC. Many people helped recommend colors that may work for me. I have added five pinks to my wishlist thanks to you all. Thank You but today I came across the color Speed Dial on Temptalia's website (The Summer Season: MAC Speed Dial Lipstick) and fell in love.

    I am NC50 in the summer NC45 in the winter and I wanted to know if this is a good buy for my complexion. I appreciate all suggestions. Thanks =)

    i think it'd be beautiful!! i'm NC15/20, so i can't say.. but on me it's a really nice medium bubblegum pink. it's definitely worth a shot to try on at the counter/store!

    This might be a tad light for your skin -- but you should try it as it is a gorgeous blue based pink .. gorgeous!

    Yes I'm afraid it will look to light for me. I don't wanna look like a zombie lol

    I am NC15/20...so I can't really say , but I saw that same post and fell in love, but it didn't look like that at all on me . I found that my cool undertones made it look like an odd pink beige ...but you may have better luck . But I'd still go to a counter and try it on if you're close to one . I personally think Saint Germain l/s will look great on you <3 or even Snob l/s and if you want something a bit brighter try Pink Nouveau l/s.

    Hope this helps

    It's a beautiful color, but it doesn't look like it would flatter your skintone. There are better pinks out there that would work for you!

    Thanks much! Snob was the first I wanted before them all so I am gonna try them all at the counter. Pink Nouveau honestly does not work for me. Idk what's up with me and pinks but on my wishlist for pinks lippies are: Girl About Town, Show Orchid, Lickable and Please Me.

    I know it's LE, but Strayin' would be an awesome pink on you.

    Maybe you can find it on evilbay? Or if it gets repromoted, I definitely recommend that one for you!

    Have you thought about impassioned?

    you should try Ga Ga lipstick... with ample pink lipglass.... see if that works for you! (but dont pack on ga ga lipstick.. may tend to look tooo bright) Snob, blankety, velvet teddy and Honey love.. veryy soft pinks.

    I been wanting to try GaGa for a min now so I will go try the combo you suggested. And I really do want Snob I been eyeing it for about a month now, I own Velvet Teddy its my favorite right now I love to pair it with Boy Bait Cremesheen I will be hitting up MAC very soon with my B2M items and I know I want Girl About Town and Snob.
