Lipstick Crazy: NYX UPDATE

I recently purchased all of the NYX soft matte lip creams( all 22 colors). I did an initial review on them before http://aprettythought.org/2014/03/13/lipstick-crazy-nyx/

After playing around with them I have a few updates. Below are a few pictures. I only did 6 because after a while all the colors start to look alike. There really isn’t a clear difference between the nudes or pinks.

  1. All of the lipsticks are nude, or pink/coral. There are really no purples, or reds or any dark colors. So if you like light lipsticks then this is totally for you!
  2. The lipstick is very opaque. It has high color pigmentation but it’s thin. Keep in mind this is a cream. It will not lay on thick like a normal wax lipstick would. So if you need a base lipstick that is moisturizing and creamy then this lipstick is perfect for you. These will not serve as a great lipstick alone; but they are good colors to build on.

ImageAmsterdam

ImageStockholm( looks just like Amsterdam)

Image Tokyo( Nude ish color, faded really easily)

ImageLondon: I wanted to show you all what i meant when i said the colors were opaque. It was so hard for me to get the color to even out properly. In this photo applied this at least 5 times and still couldn’t get it right. And the creams are very messy. They spread all over your mouth making it really difficult to apply properly.

ImageAntwerp: Hard to achieve proper color distribution. You can see its pigmented on my bottom lip and mute on my top. My lips were not dry or cracked. The color was just not distributing properly. I also applied this 5 times and this was the best i got.

translyvaniaTransylvania: addded this one per request. Its alot darker and more manageable for my skin tone.

Overall I wouldn’t really recommend these for everyday lipsticks. I like my lipsticks to have easy application. At best the only thing I want to do to it is add lip liner or lip gloss. These lip creams require a lot of work in order for the color to be right. I also bought the full set and the colors are not diverse enough. For a set of 22 they should all look different. Most of the colors look the exact same and I had hardly gotten through the full set.

If you have any questions or comments please let me know! If you have any personal swatch requests i will be more than happy to sample them for you!

XOXO

    I have Tokyo and Sydney but I’ve been dying to get my hands on Transylvania. How did that one turn out?

      Its great! Alot better than the other oens. Its darker so it makes it easier to hide the flaws that i had with the other lipstick. I added the photo to the post! Let me know if thier are any other swatches you would like to see! Thanks for reading =)

    I haven’t tried NYX lip products yet. Might give them a whirl, as these are really pretty colors.
