|Nyx Lip Colors|
I went for a little shopping the other day and got a few NYX lip colors. This is the first time I try NYX products and I am very excited about it. I picked up two of their hydrating lippie and two lip glosses. Keep reading for swatches and my thought on these beautiful colors.
I got two Chunky Dunks Hydrating Lippie in "orange splash" and "sex on the beach". The "orange splash" is a very natural peach color, perfect for everyday wear. I was a little disappointed because I thought it's going to be a bright orange. But, it's so wearable I wear it almost everyday. The "sex on the beach" is a bright red color which I love. The pictures above didn't do justice of this color. It's actually a really opaque, warm, and bright red color.
The formula of the Chunky Dunks Hydrating Lippie is very creamy and easy to apply. Also, it is very hydrating and can be applied without using lip balm first. After the lippie sits for a while, it leaves a beautiful natural stain. It is very long lasting and doesn't leave color on coffee mugs after it sits. The downside is that it is quite pricey. Don't let the chunky look fool you. It's a normal 3 g/0.11 oz.
Another product I have here is the Butter Gloss in "strawberry parfait", a purple pink color. There is no sparkle in it. I like to pair it with a pale pink lipstick to add more color. It has a felt tip applicator. The formula is very creamy and buttery (hence the name). There's a line on it that says: "Butter me up with divine gloss that feels like it melt on lips". I think that's really cute.
The last one I bought on a discount, because they are discontinuing it in the US. So, I am not sure if you can still get it. But, I will include a review anyway. I think the name is Girls Gloss in the color "strawberry". It's a very sheer color, so I wouldn't recommend wearing it alone if you have pale lips like mine. There are beautiful sparkles, so it can add more shine on lipsticks. It also comes with a felt tip applicator. This gloss has a candy scent to it, which I am not a fan of.
Hope the swatches and reviews are helpful. Since everyone has different natural lip colors, how the lip products look on my lips may be different from yours. And, the screen setting may differ the colors as well. So, it's still better if you can test out the colors at the drugstore.
