I'm East Asian (yellow toned skin) and fairly light. And this is my favorite lipstick.
Color: It matches my lips almost perfectly, but since there are little speckles of gold it gives my lips another kind of dimension. It's the perfect everyday lipstick
Coverage: Sheer. I don't usually wear full-coverage lipstick, hence the "crystal" in the name.
Price: $22 is not bad considering you're getting a nice designer lipstick. Then again, I don't do well with drugstore lipsticks, plus i'm the type who doesn't mind paying a little more for a quality product
Taste: Doesn't taste like @$$ unlike other lipsticks like Lancome's lipstick. Ick.
Longwearing? It's not too bad. It's very moisturizing so I usually don't put a heavy layer of gloss over it. But I have found the more moisturizing the lipstick is, the less longwearing it is (since it's slippery, you tend to eat it faster than those dry longwearing lipsticks).
I'm still not sure about this one. The color looks like a coral/gold in the tube, but on my lips, it comes out a bit too dark/pink for my liking. Feels great, has the typical EL fig scent (yum), but not very long-lasting. that's to be expected, though, with these types of formulations. I still may put this up for swap, seeing as it just doesn't "WOW!" me.
This is a VERY sheer lipstick but it's perfect for wearing everyday. It has muted gold shimmer that makes my lips more pouty (but not overly so) and the shine lasts a decent time on me. The scent is also nice.... it doesn't smell like a typical waxy lipstick. It goes on very smooth but I did notice that once applied, I could feel the glitter/shimmer on my lips very slightly. Still, not enough to really bother me or keep me from wearing this often.
This is actually one of the best lipsticks I've tried. It doesn't dry out my lips like pretty much every other lipstick does. However, it doesn't moisturize enough, not like my glosses (Chanel jaipur glossimer, MAC lipglass in prr, Estee Lauder highgloss in Coral). It also isn't a very exciting color, it's sort of mauve with a slight gold shimmer. It's very sheer and melts onto the lips easily. It has a nice texture but I just don't use it very much. I'm a gloss girl. But I recommend these--they're the best lipsticks I know of.
Wow...I thought I found my HG with Anna Sui lipsticks, but this takes the cake. A beautiful pinky nude.
I've been looking for a warm nude that compliments my skin tone (NC42, GA8) and because of the great reviews here, I bought this (got a bonus too). It's a great, subtle wash of color, and very moisturizing for my dry lips.
Beautiful lippie for summer. My lips are pale, so I need a lippie with some warm color to not look washed out and this nude-apricot with a gold sheen is perfect. Very smooth and moisturizing feel, so I don't mind reapplying it--like most sheer lippies, it doesn't last super-long, but long enough for its type.
WOW!! This is a good nude HG lipstick for sure! Feels light on the lips, gives a glossy look, has a slight shimmer, and even tastes good! I love this color since it complements so many skintones, and you can even change the color by using different lip pencils underneath. This is a must-have in any makeup kit!
This is my favorite lip product. The color and shine are great. It gives a "finished" but not overly made-up look. It's great for any occasion. I appreciate that it's in a tube. Love this--will repurchase again and again!!!
Lovelyyyyyyy nude color, brownish pink with gold, beautiful on NC42 skin!!!
