Although Lipstick Luminizer looks bizarre, it magically changes the hue of a lipstick. You can layer it over lipstick to transform any shade. Gunmetal is supposed to turn colors deep, dark, and dramatic. The gold shade, Lamé, adds warmth and a golden finish. There's a third shade, Pearlescent, that lightens color with a pearly glow and adds a silvery finish.
Now, look below, and you'll see what Gunmetal Luminizer did to Poppy Love. It made it mauve, adding a plum cast. Pfew! Poppy Love became a different lipstick when I applied Gunmetal over it. Even if this isn't a new idea, I love it.
Nordstrom's Web site. They are definitely worth your attention. It's a good thing I love pink.
