This is an ingenius shade!! It is a warm gold-flecked lavender and extremely versatile. The lavender lends a spring sophistication, but because it has a slight warm nude tinge to it, it looks great even if you are going for a nude look. The gold flecks give it extreme shine and allows amazing dimension if you are completing a warm palette. The scent is like tropical fruit and the finish is high shine but low stickiness. It is truly a luxury lipgloss.

Golden Lavender is a very sheer, light pastel lavender (lilac-based) gloss with golden shimmer. If I had to rate color impact, it'd be 3 on a scale of 1-10. Golden Lavender might be a tough shade to wear alone. I tried it a few times on its own and it looked a wee bit lifeless, so test it first if you're buying it to wear as a stand-alone color.<p> I have a different opinion of Golden Lavender when it's paired with a lipstick or other lipcolor. It pairs wonderfully overtop cool pinks, berry tones or plums. The lavender tone softens cool lipcolors without muddying the undertone. It can also slightly cool down neutral lipcolors without adding pinkness.<p> As with all Golden Glosses, the applicator is a brush. There is a fragrance that reminds me of champagne - it's interesting! Texture-wise, it's pretty sticky. I don't find it uncomfortable and the stickiness keeps it put, but it's not the easiest gloss to wipe off. I think it wears well throughout the day, thanks to the texture.<p> Price at time of review: $30.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.<p> Picture of Golden Lavender with YSL Mauve Silk nail lacquer:<p> <img src="http://img.makeupalley.com/0/0/4/5/1527920.JPG" ><p> Swatch of Golden Lavender on hand:<p> <img src="http://img.makeupalley.com/0/0/4/5/1528458.JPG" ><p> PICS ATTACHED - click "continued" to see.
