This is a gorgeous dark dusty, dirty cool toned mauve. It’s actually quite unique shade. The dusty lavender w/ gray & brown tone looks awkward & unappealing in the tube, but quite the opposite on the lips. In my opinion trendy looks best on deep dark chocolate skin a gorgeous “throw & go” easy nude that needs no liner/lipstick underneath to look pretty. When I’m going for a warmer/brighter look I just add pinky mauve underneath, will definitely repurchase.

Simply put this gloss is not a universally flattering color. To me it is best suited towards warmer/deeper skintones. With that being said it is fabulous, consider that I am a shade "golden" in bobbi brown or NC45/C6 mac. Its a mauve plum color and its just what you need when you are going for a toned down lip, would be amazing with a smoked out eye as well. All in all great buy and I recommend it with no hesitation.

The formula is creamy but a bit drying. I like how opaque and pigmented this gloss is but the colour is mediocre. In the tube it looks like a wearable plum shade but on my lips it looks like a very unnatural purple colour. Thd good thing about this gloss is that there is no glitter in it.

It's an odd color but paired with a bright fuschia or sparkly pink lipstick really tones the color down to something office wearable. Get this color!!

I have this color and at first I did not like it at first. Well, I did like it but didn't know how to work it. I do love nude lips but thought this was too off for me. I am NW45/47. It is a a greyish purpleish brown. I can't wear it too heavy or else it will look too chalky. I use a bit of a mid tone brown lip liner for definition and its a perfect nude for me. I don't own MAC Spite lip gloss so I can't do a side by side comparision but it reminds me of Trendy.
Edit 1/21/11: I recently purchased MAC Spite lipgloss and NYX Trendy is very similiar. On me Trendy is milkier, making it a lighter cooler color.

I love these glosses, but this is like a dull, greyish-purple-brown, very unflattering to my fair skin. It is very cool-toned, no shimmer, kind of looks like that Hawaiian delicacy Poi- not a color I want on my lips. It might look good on cool-toned deep skinned women, who can get away with cool purples. For me it made me look like I'd been drowned.

This shade looked totally different on the Cherry Culture website than it does in person. It's just a creamy medium brown shade of gloss. It doesn't look like something that would be good on me. :(
