Oh hey, ready for another Shop My Stash post? I am, I love doing these! I’ve honestly rediscovered a few products doing these posts, so they’ve helped me and several of you all have told me that you’ve enjoyed these posts as well! So, I’m taking on the mother load of all shop my stashes, and posting all of my current Nyx lipsticks.
Well, not all of them at once. Nyx Cosmetics is the one brand that I own the most lipsticks from. They’re the first ones I ever started “collecting” because I would always find them BOGO 50% at Ulta and use coupons on top of that. So, it’ll take me a few posts to get through all of them. I don’t want to overwhelm myself and you all. Today, I’ll be swatching my round case lipsticks, high voltage lipsticks, and my small macaron and wicked lippie collections.
Let’s begin with my round case lipsticks. These are probably the most affordable lipsticks Nyx makes, and the very first ones I ever owned. If you’re new to my blog, I’ve talked about how Chaos was the red that changed my life. I bought it and tried it during a time in my life where I was trying to figure out who I really was (long story short, I allowed others to tell me who to be) and it honestly changed my life. That was the moment I realized I was meant to be bold, and that a shade like that was what I was missing in my life. I was obsessed, and I’m on my third tube of it.

Swatches from the wrist down: Bruised, Pluto, Penelope, Black Cherry, Hero, Snow White, Chaos, Cocoa, Lala, Thalia, Hades, Power
The round case lipsticks are about $3.99 each, so when these go on sale at Ulta it’s possible to get 3 or 4 for under $10 if you use a coupon! These are not matte, and are pretty glossy for the most part. My biggest tips for these is to use a liner to prevent feathering, and use a lip brush to perfect application. I know that sounds almost like a hassle, but I honestly love the shades from this range. My absolute favorites are Chaos, Lala, and Pluto. Pluto was one that I kind of forgot about, and it’s such a trendy shade right now! Lala looks like a glossier version of Jeffree Star’s Androgyny lipstick, eh? I kinda think so.
Next up, we have the newer high voltage lipsticks. These released this past year, and come in thinner tubes than the round case ones. In my opinion, these are 100% easier to apply. However, there’s less product in these and they’re a couple bucks more expensive than the round case lippies. They are very pigmented though, and I recently used one in a drugstore tutorial. I have a prior review, just click here if you want to read it.
From the top down: Feline, Burlesque, Hollywood, Flutter Kiss, Stone
Flutter Kiss is the perfect “my lips but better” shade. Stone is also a very gorgeous greige if you’ve been wanting to try one, but don’t want to spend $20 to do so. Personally, my must haves out of these are Stone and Feline. Feline is the perfect vampy deep purple red. However, all of these are nice and I find the smaller packaging nifty since I can kinda squish them all together to save room.
Lastly, I have swatches of my Macaron and Wicked lippies by Nyx. These are all super fun shades. If you want to try fun shades, but don’t know about spending a lot of money on them, definetely look into Nyx! Neither of these lines are matte like many colorful liquid lipsticks, but you can try a shade out and see how you like it on yourself. The macaron shades are some of the first colorful lipsticks I ever bought. And the rest is history. Let’s be real, I now wear green and grey more than almost every other shade.
From top to bottom: Betrayal (Wicked), Sinful (Wicked), Pistachio, Violet, Earl Grey
I love these, and if you want to see what they would look like matte, just dust some translucent powder over the top of them! My personal must haves are…all of them. If I didn’t have a plethora of colorful liquid lipsticks, I would own all of these from both lines.
Well, that was all 22 swatches that I have for today. I will try to have part 2 up next week at about the same time! I still have my simply vamp and nude pencils, butter lipsticks, glosses, and liquid suedes to swatch. I also own quite a few lip pencils, so I can add those in if anyone would be interested.
I hope you all enjoyed today’s post! As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days!
