Mac Naked Liner lip pencil is a light beige nude. It's a little bit darker than my NC10 skintone, but lighter than my natural lip colour. It's very similar to Mac In Synch lip liner, except In Synch is a bit brighter: more peach, less beige.

The pencil doesn't have an obvious scent or taste, and wears well. It can be blended in with chapstick for a sheerer look, or worn by itself it can be built up to an opaque, light skin-coloured beige. It does catch a bit on dry lips, which you can see in the photos, but from a normal distance it looks fine.

I highly recommend this pencil for pale girls looking to mute out their natural lip colour. Mac Boldly Bare lip liner and other "nude" liners (eg Urban Decay Naked) are much darker and more brown; on fair skin Mac Naked is a much more natural looking choice. It's also opaque enough to cover very pigmented lips.
