Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick - Limited Edition Porcelain Collection in Nude Nuances

After I saw all of the great things the beauty gurus on YouTube were saying about the new Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Porcelain Collection, I had to pick up Nude Nuances.  Everyone was saying that it is a great dupe for MAC's Hue.  Since I don't own any MAC lipsticks and everyone seemed to love Hue, I decided to grab Nude Nuances at Walgreens.  It seemed to be the safest color in the collection.  All but one of others seemed WAY too pink for me.

My entire lipstick collection is made up of nudes, so this would be like all of the rest, right?  WRONG!

First, I do like the packaging.  The purpleish cap feels rubberized.  Overall, it is very cute.

The formula is smooth just like the regular Color Sensational lipstick line.  I really like the Maybelline lipsticks that I own.  In my opinion, Nude Nuances smells a little bit more like lipstick than the regular Color Sensational line.  Maybe more of a plastic smell? 
Unfortunately, this lipstick looks like concealer on my lips.  With my pale complexion, Nude Nuances makes me look positively ill.  I think you have to have a darker complexion to be able to pull off this lipstick.  I just can't pull it off at all.

That being said, I have layered this lipstick with another lipstick that was too dark brown for me.  This lipstick tones down the brown to a much more wearable nude.  I don't entirely regret buying this, because now I can wear the other lipstick that wasn't getting any use.  However, I have enough colors in my lipstick collection that I DO enjoy wearing alone that completely compliment my skintone... so maybe I still regret the color.  I'll just stick with the regular Color Sensational lipstick line.
