Ugh, what can I say? I got this amplified creme lipstick when it released a few winters ago in the "Style Curve" collection, because the original color I wanted (style curve) was sold out at my local MAC counter. I don't know if it was the lighting in that particular dept store or what, because it was beautiful when I tried it on. Its been quite some time now and I STILL cannot find a good way to wear this shade. HELP PLEASE!!
