Above left is a swatch of Cloud 9 on white paper, above right is manufacturer photo of this color. The color originally looked like an extremely light barely-pgmented pink in the manufacturer's photo, we edited their photo to reflect that it's a richer light pink color.
Above is (left to right, top to bottom) Cupcake matte warm pink lipstick, Shortcake matte coral orange lipstick and Cloud 9. Cloud 9 is much less orangey and more pink then Cupcake or Shortcake and much more muted.
Above is the photo of Cloud 9 matte pink lipstick applied to my lips. My lips are naturally dark, I like this fun light pink color on me though! =)
Remember that this color looks like a muted nude pink in the tube, but on darker lips it comes out a lighter pink =)
Cloud 9 lipstick is what I'd call a medium-light pink matte lipstick. The pink isn't exactly blaring, it's more of a muted light pink, it looks like a nude pink on the swatch and in the packaging. It even looks like a nude / muted pink on my medium toned hand. Some may see this and call it a 'muted pink' and that would be would be good descriptions too. I tend to think of this as 'wearable pink'. This color is fairly cool toned.
I have naturally very dark pink lips, and this color comes out on me a light pink. On me, with my slightly tan skin due to summertime fun, it looks a little like a fun funky 60's color. It doesn't feel 'costumey' however, I would definitely wear this with a natural but black-lined eye. This color will look a little different on everyone depending on not only your skintone, but the natural color of your lips.
If you have darker skin, this will be a very dramatic color on you unless you apply it lightly. If you have light skin, this will complement your skin but will still be a strong pigmented pink matte color (so it's not a sheer color but a luxurious rich light pink)
This color is right for cosplay looks that call for a pink lip that isn't very bright.
Our rich matte lipstick formula smooths on your lips, is easy to apply and moisturizes your lips while you wear it (in these days of adding this line of matte lipstick to our website and photographing them on myself, my lips have never felt softer.
Cloud 9 matte lipstick is packaged in a black color view packaging as shown above left. Wonderful so you can see what color you're pulling out of your makeup bag!
