eh....
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, sheer
I was super excited to get this product. I love all things MAC.Because I have gotten really fond of nude lips, I thought this would be great for me. I'm pale (NW15) but have very pigmented lips. I tried this and it did nothing. My lips had an almost invisible speck of beige but that was it. The only reason I'm giving this a 3 is because a.) it serves as a nice lip balm/base for your lipstick and b.) it holds lipstick really well. I'm not sure I would buy this again. One last thing: the container is of fairly good size, so that's a plus.

Lip Erase where have you been all my life! This is an absolute must have!! Is perfect at neutralizing my lip color and creating a blank canvas for lipglosses and lipsticks. Not drying or cakey. Wish I would have discovered this sooner. Am considering getting Pale as well as it might give a different effect. Please do not ever discontinue!!!

Amazing.....
Tags +Long wearing, Color true
When I ordered this product, I had never used it before and was a bit hesitant. But since using it, I will not wear my lips without it. Also works great when just used on the lips, then fill in with an liner and apply a sheer gloss on top for that natural look. Prolong wear lipliners are great for this. I love it with "whirl". For me, I find it works best with matte finish lipsticks. When I used my "cremesheen glass", it doesn't seem to last as long. But it does make the lips "pop" more because it allows the color to be more true.

Not worth the hype
Tags +nude gloss
I got this product thinking it will conceal my natural lip color to apply nudes. It went on pretty sheer and glossy. I think just putting foundation over your lips will do a better job.

Perfection

I bought this especially for the Fall and Winter seasons to try out darker lip colors such as Merlot, plum, burnt orange, dark coppers and etc. I love how it makes those colors POP even on my golden brown complexion.

Dark lips, fair skin.
Tags +color erase, lip foundation, Non-Drying
This product is just what I needed to pair under my fairer lipsticks and glosses.
The problem I was having was that my lips were too dark for the pink lipsticks I enjoy. In order to get the shade I was hoping, I'd have to apply 5-6 layers of lipstick just to cover my natural lip color (dark mauve-y/purple), and when you are wearing that much product it's easy to tell that it is just caked on unnaturally.
I ordered the fairer of the two shades and it was just about a perfect match for my skin tone (I haven't tried their foundation yet, so I don't have number for you to compare). It accomplished exactly what I was hoping for! It gave me a much fairer foundation for the light lipsticks, making the pinks look utterly effortless (have not tried it under a dark lipstick, don't really see the point there).
About the product:
Color: as stated above, the color was perfect for me.
Moisturizing: It didn't leave my lips feeling dry or chalky.
Texture: the product in the tub is really, really hard. Kinda difficult to apply with anything other than your finger. I prefer to use a brush for anything with color, just because I don't like the color transfer on my fingertips, NOT enough of a complaint to keep me from using the product though. When applied with my fingertip, the color goes on really fast. It almost reminded me of using a powder in the way the color deposited.
Smell: doesn't smell like anything. Literally just, like, nothing.
My process: apply balm first (keeps the pigment from sinking into any creases or cracks in your lip), blot on with fingertip. Let it dry. Touch up with desired lipstick.
Last minute advice: if you choose to try using this product, learn how to "sculpt/shade" with your lipsticks for a more natural look. This does it's job well and makes upper and lower lip utterly the same color, if used unwisely it can create a flat dimensionless color.

Bought this to create a blank canvas so that whatever shade lipstick I chose would be true to color. I've been happy with this product it goes on slightly moist almost like a lip balm and it's not drying.

Tags +Creamy, Color true, Long wearing, nude lip, wipe away highly-pigmented lip colour
I originally bought lip erase to take away the pigment in my lips and have my lipstick show it's true colour. When I got it however, I was eager to try it right away so I applied it over lipgloss that I already had on. After a while I looked in the mirror and my lips were a light, soft pink-nude (a look I've been wanting to achieve for quite some time!) I have very light, pink-toned skin and this compliments that on its own very nicely. Lip erase also keeps my lipstick it's true colour and keeps my lips moisturized even with lipstick that tends to dry them out. Overall I'm very impressed! A must have for every makeup bag!

I like this product, it's not what I reach for everyday but I tend to use it with lighter colors than with dark ones. With darker lipsticks I notice it brightens them a bit and that's ok, if that's what I'm going for but what I want most of the time is a true color which is the purpose of this lip erase. I do like it, it's smooth, it's moisturizing, works great with sheer colors. I do recommend it but not for all shades.

LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!!
Tags +Creamy, Color true, Long wearing
I ordered lip erase in pale hoping that I would like it. It came today and I absolutely LOVE it! It works just like its supposed to. It makes my nude viva glam lipstick look so great! Also I like it just with my pretty plush, plush glass. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to cover up the rosy color in your lips.

Love it
When I got this I wasn't wearing it to have nude colored lips. I got this so that I got make my lips a blank slate before putting on lipstick. I have dark skin with red undertones so if I were to just wear lip erase I would look crazy. But I love it because it allows me to wear whatever shade of lipstick I want without the natural tone of my lips coming through.

Question
I'm an NW 45 so the color selection is disappointing. MAC could stand to have a couple of more darker tones available. If I were to wear this alone or under lipgloss it would be too light. Also, it doesn't mention whether the product is water proof or not. In the past I would prime my lips with a concealer all for it to mix in with and change the color of the lipstick I was wearing.

Tags +Creamy
I've used this both on its own and under lipstick and I have mixed thoughts about this product. On its own the colour does not look even, and often makes my lips look dry. It's good underneath dark lipsticks, but under a cremesheen lipstick it's awful. I tried it under the limited edition Lavender Whip because it doesn't show up terribly well on its own because I have highly naturally pigmented lips. It made the lipstick sticky and I couldn't wear it for very long.
Overall, I may need to try the darker shade, but I'm disappointed for the most part. I am however impressed with the quantity, a little goes a long way and you get A LOT in the pot.

Dewy, Creamy, Looks Good!!
Tags +Long wearing, Creamy, Color true
I was very skeptical, I decided to try it. Honestly, I am very happy with how good this looks! Dewy, creamy. Easily wear this lip cream at work, outdoors, I was not disappointed. Nice feel, did not dry my lips out, although I use a moisturizer before applying. Oh yea, when the product describes itself as it will "erase", it really doesn't make you lipless. It instead gives a POSH look, that you see in hign end fashion magazines. I hightly recommend this lip product. It is not a bold product, I love it and I am a MAC fan.

The lip erase does a good job of taking away any discoloration on the lips to have an easy canvas to work on, however, it leaves the lips very dry and it is pretty hard to spread over the lips.

This product is awesome! No matter what color lip gloss I wear (clear,nude, tans, pinks) my lips always look the same shade of pink on me UNTIL this. I love just wearing it with clear on top makes a great nude lip and lasts for hours without having to reapply. Very happy with this.
