I've been wearing this lipstick (Rouge Pure Shine No. 34 - Metallic Gold) for a few weeks now and yes it's metallic gold (second photo below), but it wears very sheer. It looks amazing with my haircolor, and I love that it's buildable. But my favorite look (third photo below) is layering the lipstick above with Yves Saint Laurent's Golden Gloss No. 36 - Golden Chocolate. The gloss layers nicely, isn't sticky and is full of shimmer, shine and sparkles. So, what do you think?
