NYX Cosmetics’ Velvet Diamond Sparkle Lipstick

I couldn't find swatch photos of this online, so I wasn't really sure what color it would be. It looked a little like it might lean purple, just from the various product photos (which, I have learned, are sucktastic and not really representative of the product.) Velvet Diamond Sparkle is a kind of cool taupe / tanned lilac-ish shade, with (of course) plenty of sparkle. I wish that these lipsticks didn't feel so unpleasant when I applied them, or I'd wear Velvet more often!
