Personally, MAC's Hue lipstick is one of my fallbacks.
It has a glaze finish (nice and subtle) and a universally flattering nude-pink colour.
I'm sure that description didn't get anyone excited. This shade has been around forever. New, trendy collections come around every season. Bright fuschias, matte reds they all get swatched and hyped up by various beauty gurus. The internet 'oohs' and 'aahs' over the latest fad (myself included).
After experimenting with beauty sins, sometimes it's nice to have that one wearable lipstick to swipe back on.
