NYX Cosmetics’ Cashmere Black Label Lipstick (119)

A very soft nude shade on my lips. I honestly don't know if this has the same staying power as the red and pink Black Label lipsticks, whose color I can actually see, or if part of the suspected “fade” is the shimmer blotting off over the hours but the color remaining behind. At any rate, I give it a 3/4 longevity, and part of that is honestly benefit of the doubt. I only wore this lipstick twice, and I don't know how often I'll wear it again - only because the color doesn't work too well for me. Application was fine; the feel of it on my lips was no problem; the scent was grapeseed, and very faint; there are just other lip colors that I prefer to wear.
