NYX Cosmetics’ Apricot Diamond Sparkle Lipstick

There's enough red in this that the color is actually wearable (well…that might be the combination of the sparkle and the color.) This is more of a “dark dried-apricot” color under a red bulb, than a straight orange that one might expect from something named “Apricot”. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, seeing how red Peach Round Lipstick is. NYX seems to have some interesting ways of either naming or perceiving color.

It has the same issues as all the Diamond Sparkle lipsticks do: the color applies well, but the formula feels dry and a touch uncomfortable to me; the color lasts longer than the Round Lipstick shades; and unless you REALLY want sparkly lipstick, this probably won't work for you.
