Lately I’ve been on a weird gold kick. Weird because I usually despise gold. Having skin that’s cool-toned, I don’t wear gold jewelry–I’m a silver girl through and through. So why this gold lipstick?
I have no explanation.
I’ve decided I really like gold if it’s a light and soft gold. Nothing brassy. Like actual gold. I’m even wearing gold nail polish right now, because it’s the right gold. Maybe even… a splendorous gold.
Also, as you may or may not know, I’ve been on a nude lipstick kick. So when I find this super light gold almost kinda nude lipstick that’s technically classified as a brown even though it’s a peachy-gold, do I buy it? You bet your bottom lip I do.

As you can see, it’s pretty much a shimmery nude. Not something I’d wear every day, but on occasion. When I want to feel fancy.
Top: Bare lips. Bottom: Golden Splendor.
Even though this lipstick claims to be moisturizing, I find it really drying. I mean, it feels fine when it’s on your lips, but it doesn’t last that long, and when it’s off, my lips are SO dry. This also smells like a lipstick. You know what I mean? That definite lipstick scent. I’m not totally sure how else to describe it. Like a lipstick. I feel like my boyfriend reviewing perfume. But seriously.
Available in a variety of colors. Apparently it’s up for grabs just how many.
Also, chart not that accurate. The circled color is supposed to be Golden Splendor.
Pros: Great color, wide shade selection.
Cons: Super drying, not long-lasting.
Final Verdict: Would I purchase this again? Maaaaybe in another color. Because I’m a lipstick fiend. You can find it for $6-8 USD at various drugstores and Ulta.
Has anyone else tried this line? I’d love to hear if you had a similar reaction!
