Zuzu Luxe Patina Lipstick Swatches

Zuzu Luxe Lipstick in Patina is... exactly that... A stunning Patina for your lips! It looks delicious on the lips and makes for a yummy topping of golden champagne goodness over any other lipstick... from bare summer nudes to winter cherry reds! 

In our last post, we reviewed Zuzu Luxe Ultra Suede lipstick, a gorgeous peachy-nude creme. If you missed that post, I'll link it here.

Zuzu Luxe Patina has quickly become one of my most reached for lipsticks. It also replaced my old favorite MAC Gel, which was my very first MAC lipstick and most repurchased lipstick of all time. Unfortunately, MAC is no longer cruelty-free, so I quit purchasing and using MAC Cosmetics. Shortly after I finished my last tube of Gel, I discovered Patina, a stunning, cruelty-free, vegan dupe for MAC Gel lipstick!

Patina is a warm golden champagne frost. The warm undertone and light reflecting sheen softens your natural lip color, creating an effortless glimmering nude lip.

Zuzu Luxe Patina feels lightweight and satiny on the lips. The all natural oils and extracts in Zuzu Luxe lipsticks help to moisturize and condition your lips.
