I really like this color a lot, but I find it more difficult to apply than the others that I own. For some reason, it tends to be more splotchy, and only tends to pick up on certain parts of my lips.

This color makes me look younger and also can mix with the other one

I'm surprised of all the negative comments on this. I really like it! I don't get the "silver" looking people are saying. Its a really pretty light shimmery light pink. I put MACs oyster girl lip gloss over it. This doesn't dry out lips either which I was afraid of cuz most inexpensive lipsticks do. First NYX product. Looking forward to experience with more of their stuff!
**UPDATE** Ok, make sure u put this on LIGHTLY. I saw my lips in a different light and see what others mean with the silver look.

I've never had success with nude lipsticks in the past, but I love frosty lipsticks. This gives the perfect 'Ganguro' girl look and as it wears off it turns to just a light frosty shimmer.

I agree with everything in the review before me.. it's basically just extremely silvery and frosty and I can't really see anyone wearing this on it's own, not even me and I normally love very light lipstick shades and don't mind a little frost, but this is too much.

At least it doesn't dry out my lips and doesn't have any annoying smell or taste, that's a plus, but the only plus I can think of unfortunately.

This is pretty horrific on me. I was hoping it would be the pale pink shimmer/frost shade it appears to be in the tube. Instead, it's basically a metallic/frosty silver shade. There's so much of the silver that none of the pink shows through. This is similar to NYX's "Sash" lipstick but with way WAY more silver, and it's much more metallic. At least with Sash, you see some of the pink, too. I really can't see *any*one being able to wear this alone, unless that's the kind of look they're going for. I don't even think I'll be able to figure out a way to make it worth with other products, like a gloss or a lipliner. I'm not really into having to apply two or three different products just to make one work, so I doubt I'll ever be wearing this. Would definitely not repurchase and I really can't recommend it.
