NYX Cosmetics’ Dusty Rose Diamond Sparkle Lipstick

I like the shade, and the sparkle is nice…but all of these lipsticks just feel odd on my lips. Don't know quite how to describe it. They don't dry my lips out, but they feel like they probably should. (And yes, I know that makes absolutely no sense.)

The shade is nice, though. Very similar to Dusty Rose in the Round Lipstick collection. The upside of the Diamond Sparkles is that they last longer: there's far less transfer or migration of the color. Once applied, the shade pretty much stays put. The downside…the Diamond Sparkle lipsticks cost more (even from one of the etailers) and the texture is most definitely not my favorite.
