Do you like pale pink lips? Or just plain pale lips? I personally don't. It makes me look like I'm sick, or dead. >__<
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Istanbul is a pale pink shade. It reminds me of MAC Viva Glam Gaga I. I personally think this will suit fair-skinned chicas with cool undertones, or maybe at least someone who doesn't have a pigmented lips.

PROS: The formula is great: starts as creamy, then dries out matte. It tastes yummy, too. The packaging is handy and it's affordable.
CONS: The color is not for everybody. If you have pigmented lips (like myself), you might need to pile on 4-5 layers just so it can fully cover your lips.I also think this will suit fair-skinned chicas with cool undertones better.
VERDICT: 3 out of 5 CHILIS! I love the formula, but the shade doesn't suit me at all. My face just looks dull and gray.
Do you like pale / nude lips?? Why and why not?
