I might be way off the mark here but is MAC's Sol Lipstick from Belle Azure anyway like MAC's Brew from the High Tea collection? I've seen swatches & some pics but i havent seen it in person myself.

My sis is going to Brown Thomas tomorrow so she'll be passing MAC. I was gonna get her to pick this up for me coz i've a few B2M's at home. Yay or Nay?

Keep in mind, i LOVE MAC Brew and anything that slightly resembles it!!

I love Sol, but didn't buy Brew. However, IIRC, they're not similar at all. Sol is a bronzey orange, but very wearable IMO. I've also heard very good reviews on Sol, so it's a yay!

sol is definitely a bronze color. i didn't like it. i ended up getting expensivo, but it's more of like a frosty color. so not a nude thing going on with either one.

I got expensivo too. At first, I thought I like expensivo better and didn't like Sol much. But then I started wearing Sol a lot and realized that it was actually a very nice color. I love expensivo too but I already have ones like it, such as Oh Sheer Up and Rags to Riches

I personally love high tea as a nude color.

Midimauve is not a nude,its a YLBB muave/pink xx

oops. my bad. midimauve is a mauve/pink color. duh, the name. lol. i was thinking of it as like a light lip color compared to other mac lippies that are bright or too pink.

i've never come across a lipstick like it - ever!

high tea, flutterby, etc. are nothing like it.

brew is a light beige. if you put it on, it'll cover your lips completely, but then it doesn't. it lets a little of your natural color show so you don't look washed out and gives it a little pink hue to it. that made no sense, but you know what i mean LOL

It really depends on the level of pigment in a persons lips, mine are very pink naturally xx
