NYX 24 Karat Lipstick

The Summer Season: NYX 24 Karat Lipstick

NYX 24 Karat Lipstick ($5.50) is an ultra shimmery, borderline glittery metallic copper with a copper-brown color base. This is a very, very bronzy shade, and I definitely think it’s more suitable for tanner skin. It has a high-shine that’s more metallic than shimmery. I love that the color is entirely opaque! I get about two to three hours of wear with this particular lipstick, and I didn’t notice any scent other than waxiness of the lipstick itself. No real taste, either!

Is this the right bronze for you? Would you wear it?

The Summer Season is a series of posts featuring bright, vibrant shades of coral, orange, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for a summer of fun — that runs through July 2010.

    It may just be me, but this kind of reminds me of thrills from the To The Beach collection but with a lot more shimmer to it. hmmm could just be me though lol : )

  10. Is this a dupe for MAC’s Thrills l/s?

    i have a thing about buying lipsticks from drugstores .. that would be NO!
    Im highly picky about formulation and texture as well as color and i would spend the luxury of a well formulated lipstick than a drugstore.

    I’m shocked a lot of people don’t like it… I LOVE IT! I like it when you wear colors outside of the red or pink range…. especially the ones that warms up your face. Cute
