NYX Fortune Cookie Lipstick

NYX Fortune Cookie Round Lipstick ($4.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a shimmery bronzed beige. It appears much lighter and whiter on my lips–it’s a very, very frosted finish. The shade reminded me of MAC Pretty Please, which is a little pinker; MAC Tanarama, which is more golden; and MAC Bubbles, which is whiter and pinker.

This is not for someone who doesn’t LOVE their shimmer. It’s kind of like a really shimmered/frosted nude. There’s so much shimmer in this that it ends up looking almost opaque on the lips. I like it overall, and I think the effect looks nicer from afar; I’d recommend layering a gloss on top (maybe a red or plum) that’s more of a cream finish. Though it can be worn alone, it also works well as a layering product.

Because of the high level of frost, it is a bit drying compared to other shades I’ve tried within this range. It also wears away a little unevenly, but it does apply evenly from the get-go, which isn’t always true for extreme frost finishes. Mine has no detectable scent, though I know sometimes NYX’s lipsticks seem to be scented with something, but this has been waiting to be tested/reviewed for several months so it may have lost its scent over time (I find that more budget-friendly brands lose their fragrance much faster than higher-end brands). Fortune Cookie wore for about three hours.

I usually don’t like frosted lipsticks, just because I think it ends up looking cheap/like an eyeshadow on the lips. This is actually pretty cool, haven’t really seen anything like it before.

Hi. For the longest time I’ve been waiting for a MAC repromote or a good dupe for a lipstick from the style warriors collx called sunsational. Would you say this NYX shade is the closest?

I see what you mean about it needing a gloss over it, but it looks good on you. Pity that it doesn’t have a creamy counterpart. I wonder if a liner would pop the color any and/or help with the hang time.

This is really such a pretty color. It looks great on you. I can’t wear it though, at my age frosts are verboten. It adds like 10 years at least. But this sure is pretty!

Oh wow, this is a really fun color! I don’t know if I could work up the nerve to rock it, but I want to play with it. I could see this being really stunning with a dark smoky eye, and maybe blended with a bit of lip balm to tone it down a notch…

Oooh, this reminds me a lot of a Maybelline Color Sensational the Pearls shade that I have, but I can’t remember which. Maybe Sugared Almond?

There is such a fine line between frost and shimmer for me in lipsticks, I love shimmers, but if it gets too frosty, it tends to make me feel washed out. Doesn’t matter what the shade, if it’s a full-on frost, it’s odd.

This reminds me of a more silver/white version of MAC’s Beachbound from the To the Beach Collection. Beachbound is more of a golden frost/shimmer. Would you agree?

Reminds me of Maybelline’s Twinkle or So Pearly, if a bit more opaque. I use it a lot for as an alternative to nude lips when I do a dramatic or smoky eye.

looked like MAC bubbles to me..it would indeed be a fun lipstick for layering..i don’t like NYX round l/s because of the short staying power..i like their matte l/s though..
