MAC Hue | Lipstick Review

I love lipstick!  My obsession started years ago when I ventured into a MAC store with my sister looking for the perfect nude shade.  
My criteria: easy to apply, moisturizing and doesn't give that 'dead' look.  
There's nothing worse than looking completely washed out by lack of color on the lips.  
Attention:  That is not a cute look!

Hue quickly became my favorite nude MAC lipstick.  It retails for $15 online and at my local counter.
This lipstick is a glaze formula.  It has minimal color payoff and adds a moisturizing glaze to the lips.
MAC describes this shade as a soft pale pink.  That sounds so boring!  
It's so much more than that.  It nourishes my dry lips beautifully whilst muting out the natural red undertones.  

The staying power varies depending on how much talking I'm doing.  It lasts an estimated 2-3 hours.  
You will need to reapply after meals.
I don't worry about needing a mirror when applying as I'm out and about.  
It's simple when you're on the go and can't be bothered.

This has been my most worn lipstick of all time.  That's saying a lot considering how many lipsticks I own.
Hue isn't too pale, adds the right amount of color and is wearable for a variety of different looks.
It's versatility won me over.

Would you give Hue a try?

I would love other nude lipstick recommendations from you all.
