My lips but shimmery! 6$ on sale in Canada. Packaging is a bit too loose compared to the others I purchased in that line
GORGEOUS medium tone pinky mauve color with a gold shimmer. This lipstick looks incredible against my light, cool toned skin. It's my go to color when I wear a mauvy eyeshadow. It feels very moisturizing and the color LASTS. When it does fade it leaves an even stain on your lips that looks pretty nice. Nothing like the lipsticks that fade in blotchy stains or leave a strange ring around the outer part of your lips.
I got this as a freebie as part of a makeup order online, so it was unexpected! I like the colour, it's pretty much exactly my natural lip colour which is great. Unfortunately, I don't like the frost factor. If it were matte or glossy with no frost, this would get an extra lippy from me. It's fairly moist and applies nicely though and because I got it for free, I'm not complaining! I can just apply a gloss over the top to disguise the frost :)
As a lipstick fanatic, Ive easily learned not to discriminate over brand. If a colour is great, it doesn't matter if its high end or a cheapie. This colour is "sensational" but, the smell of the sensational series is terrible. It smells off before even going off. A really annoying smell thus taste on your lips too. A pinky nude with pigment and the tiniesst gold fleck great for light skin, but horrible smell and taste to it.
i loooooooove this lipstick. IMO, this is an identical dupe of MAC Viva Glam V, but better!!!
It's a nude/pink with gold sparkle and super moisturizing.
This is a gorgeous and complex pink. It is a little bit mauve, a little bit tawny and has lots of gold sparkles in it. If you don't like sparkle I'd stay away from Pink Quartz. I love this color, and I agree it is much more wearable than it looks it the tube. I have had a hard time finding colors in the CS line that are wearable on my fair skin tone, but this one works. If you are familiar with the NYX eyeshadow single in Flamingo, this is the lipstick version of that color (I plan on wearing these together a lot). It is a very summery, sexy pink. The only complaint I have about this color is that the gold sparkles tend to travel a bit. But aside from that I love this color and it will be a go to in the warmer months.
I really love this lipstick. It actually looks very similar to one of my favorite lipsticks, Wet n Wild Silk Finish 502A (dark pink frost). Pink Quartz is very similar but better, in my opinion. Pink Quartz is a medium mauve, not really pink, with gorgeous golden shimmer. It really reminds me of MAC frost lipsticks but so much cheaper! I can buy like 3 of these for the price of 1 MAC (although I love MAC, don't get me wrong). It does have a tinge of lavender to it, but it is beautiful on my pale skin and very wearable for everyday. The texture is so smooth and light, almost like lip balm. And it smells faintly of vanilla, very pleasant. I also like the packaging, the sheer maroon case is pretty. This was my first ever CS lipstick and I love it, best part is it cost me less than $5 at Walmart. I'm thinking I just found my new favorite lipstick brand. :)
the pics posted here totally misleading because it looks nothing like that in real life. This is medium mauve with golden shimmer that has a distinctive purple tone to it. On your lips, it does looks bit more wearable and not really purple but medium mauve with definate lavender tone. This is not pink(even though it looks pink on these pictures but swatched on my hand, its straight up purplish mauve). I think it looks rather subdued and natural(surprisincly) which is not the look i usually go for however i can see this looking good on variety of skintones. this is not a repurchase for me because i like colors in the pink family better and this is nowhere near that. For reference, i'm cool toned PPP, dark hair, blue eyes
This is a very pretty mauve color with golden shimmer. Never tried mauve shades before the Color Sensational line came out, but they are so pretty! The texture is creamy like all the CS lipsticks. I also love the packaging. Simple but pretty!
