NYX lippies haul!
NYX lippy haul! YAY! this is my very first NYX purchase and I must say, I'm VERY impressed with the lipsticks :) The lipsticks are very creamy, moisturizing, long lasting, and most importantly, pigmented and not at all drying-simply amazing!
So lets start off with the basics-I ordered these off of Cherry Culture. Cherryculture.com is a website that sells a variety of more lower end brands. I'm not too familiar with the site products because i've only ordered once from there, but I hear people talking about them and they all love it. It seems they always have some sort of sale going on and one happened to be going on when I made my purchase! :) so I got 12 lipsticks and 1 lipgloss. Each lipstick was $1.75 and they are originally $3.00 and they are actually still on sale so go check it out! The lipgloss was originally $3.00 and I got it for $2.00.
I've only used a couple lipsticks so far and have truly liked all of them so far. Normally, I don't wear lipstick besides the occasional amazing nude color Darling by Gosh. But lately, i've been finding myself picking up one of these lipsticks and applying it :)
The lipsticks have a floral scent when you smell the stick but once you apply it to your lips(which to me smells quite lovely!), it really has no smell.
As for the lipgloss, it is not at all sticky but I really don't like the smell. It has a ginger type smell to it, which I was never too fond of ginger in the first place.
anywho, here are all the lippies:
(L-R): Louisiana, Femme, Georgia, Fig, Electra, Snow White, Milan Pumpkin Pie, Peony, Tea Rose, B52, Thalia
Louisiana, Femme, Georgia, Fig
Electra, Snow White, Milan Pumpkin Pie
Peony, Tea Rose, B52, Thalia
lipgloss in Apricot
If you haven't tried NYX's lipsticks then I strongly reccommend that you do because they're really great and so so cheap! I payed $24.35 for 13 lip products and thats including shipping and handling fees.
*sorry for no swatches, but I will put them up ASAP! and I will describe color and more details about the lippies once i've got them swatched.
