I currently own only three lipsticks and MAC Taupe is one of them. The formula is light and the smell is so nice. I like to pat the lipstick onto my lips with my finger. I'm NC25 and Taupe is a beautiful all year round color...it's bricky red brown and looks beautiful when sheered out for a day look. It brightens up my face when I'm only wearing eyeliner and mascara, no shadow.
