Nyx Lip Lingerie Review + Swatches

nix lip lingerie

Hey beauties,

I recently posted a new video on my Youtube channel! I’ve been meaning to do a review with swatches of the Lingerie lipsticks I own, and now it’s finally up! Also, I changed my lighting and I’ve been uploading in HD, which means my videos now show my true skin tone. In case you’re wondering why the sudden weird overall change.

I go over everything in the video, but overall I’m pretty happy with these. Some shades are kinda “meh” in texture, but some shades are fantastic! I like these way more than the liquid suedes. I don’t think these are a “drop everything and buy these RIGHT NOW” type of liquid lipstick, but they’re nice to play around with.

This shade surprised me. It’s called Bedtime Flirt, and I feel this may be the peachy nude I reach for this Spring! Very subtly sexy.

I swatched this shade a few weeks back on my Instagram. It’s called “Honeymoon” and in my opinion, it’s the best shade in this line. I own a lot of greige shades, but this one is actually different than my other ones.

If you’re interestted in watching the video, here it is:

I hope you all enjoy the review! As always, thanks for stopping by! I hope you’re all having wonderful days.

Nyx Cream Contour Palette Review

Hey lovelies,

I’ve been wanting to do more individual product reviews on my Youtube channel. I’ve done a few, but this is a review on a relatively new product. Nyx recently came out with cream contour kits that are a bit reminiscent of the oh so loved Anastasia ones. There are 3 different shade ranges to choose from, and naturally, I have the light one. I had high hopes for this product since I love Nyx as a brand. This product, however, missed the mark for me. Big time.

I do give other drugstore options that might work out 100% better than this one did. I hope you all find this helpful…or at least entertaining.  Subscribe to my Youtube channel if you want to!

Nyx Lipstick Collection Pt. 2

nyx lipsticks

Okay, so it’s time for part two of this giant installment in my “shop my stash” series. More people voted to see my Nyx lipstick collection, and well, I didn’t expect it to be such a huge collection.

If you’re interested in Part one just click here.

Now, today I will be swatching my current collection of simply nude, red, and vamp jumbo pencils, liquid suedes, and my latest additions to my matte lipstick collection. I did a prior post about my Nyx Matte lipsticks that you can ready here if you fancy.

I’ve used the simply vamp lip creams often on my blog, but they’re ones that I always forget to reach for. I own all of the simply vamp lip creams, a couple of the simply ones, and a couple of the simply red ones. The Simply Vamp line is a must have for me. I truly love these, and the shades are amazing! I feel that the shades from the simply nude and red lines can be found in other lines from Nyx though.

I’m not too fond of the packaging, honestly. I feel these could be nicer, but when it comes to Nyx lipsticks, my main concern is the product, and the product is nice.

From top to bottom: She Devil, Temptress, Bewitched, Enamored, Aphrodisiac, Covet, Maraschino Cherry, Leading Lady, Sable, Exposed

My personal favorites are Enamored, Covet, and Bewitched. These are must have shades for me. Enamored and Covet have shimmer to them, so if you’re a vampy soul that loves touches of glamour, these will be perfect for you.

Next up is my current liquid suede collection. I did a youtube review of these that can be watched here.

I added Sway to my collection since that video. However, I forgot to swatch Stone Fox for this post. I knew I was forgetting one. That video includes a lip swatch of Stone Fox though. For the most part, I enjoy these. They don’t dry down completely matte, so they’re not transfer proof, but they are comfortable and the shades are gorgeous. The only one I find to be patchy when applied to the lips is Sway. It’s a very pretty neon lavender, but it doesn’t work well on my lips.

From top to bottom: Kitten Heels, Cherry Skies, Vintage, Soft Spoken, Sway, Amethyst

My personal favorites from this line are Vintage, Soft Spoken, and Amethyst. I have a thing for blurples, and Amethyst is a gorgeous blurple color that makes me teeth look white. Vintage is a shade that everyone needs. It flatters everyone!

Last, I have my couple of soft matte lip creams and new Matte lipsticks. I only have two of the matte lip creams because I’m not a huge fan of them. I find them patchy and I rarely wear them. They also dry up quickly, so if you’re someone that collects lipsticks, you may want to pass on these for that reason alone.

However, Copenhagen and Cannes are two that I have kept, and are very pretty shades. As for my matte ones, I recently added four more, two of them being from the 2016 line! That’s right, Nyx is releasing a plethora of new shades to their matte lipstick and soft matte lip cream line.

Top to bottom: Ultra Dare (NEW!), Up the Bass (NEW!), Aria, Siren, Copenhagen, Cannes

Up the Bass and Ultra Dare are my favorites, as well as Siren. However, I’m a huge fan of all of the matte lipsticks by Nyx. I will probably end up adding most of the new shades to my collection since I already know I love the formula. Not too sure about the soft lip creams. If anyone tries the new ones…let me know if there’s been a formula change!

Anyway, that’s it for today’s shop my stash post! I didn’t include my glosses and lip liners since they’re technically not lipsticks, but I can add another post with those if anyone would be interested.

I hope you all enjoyed this, and as always, thanks for reading!

Oh, and Happy New Year! I hope 2016 is swell to each and every one of you, and please be safe tonight. If you have too much fun and you’re without a ride, you can download Uber and get a discount on your first ride I believe.

Until next time, beauties.

Shop My Stash: Nyx Lipsticks Pt. 1

Nyx Lipsticks

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. If you want to read my prior post just click here.

 

nyx lipsticks

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!

Quick Review: Nyx Lip Color Remover

nyx lip color remover

Hey lovelies,

Today I have a quick review for you all! I feel like I haven’t done one of these in awhile, as I’ve been doing more lipstick/palette reviews than anything else lately. A few weeks ago, Ulta had a buy 2 get 1 free sale on Nyx cosmetics, so I got a few things that I needed, and snagged this for free. It’s a newer product that Nyx came out in lieu of the liquid lipstick trend.

I was waiting for an affordable brand to come out with something like this, it’s genius. I own quite a few liquid lipsticks, and there are a few that are a pain in the butt to remove without also removing half your makeup. I’m someone that enjoys wearing several lip colors a day at times, so not having that option without reapplying all of my makeup is disheartening.

So, now this product is in my possession and I have tried it out enough to let you all know what I think about it!

Price: $4.99

Amount of Product: 0.43 fl oz

What it claims: “This remover thoroughly conditions and pampers the lips while effectively wiping away long-lasting color.”

Consistency: This is a pretty thick formula. I actually wasn’t expecting this to be so thick, but it did take a bit for me to squeeze the product out. It’s thick and has a very slight pink shade to it.

How it works: You don’t need much of this at all, and what I do is just dab it on the top of my lips and then use my lips to work the product around. This doesn’t taste bad or have an intense scent, so that’s a good thing. It does have a bit of an oil to it though, and you’ll see the lipstick you’re wearing start to slip off gently.

I then take a wipe of any sort and gently wipe the color off my lips.

My general thoughts: This is a pretty nifty product, and one that is worth the $5 if you wear liquid lipstick often. It did remove some of my heavy duty shades like “Dr. M” by Colourpop and my LaSplash ones and kept my lips feeling smooth instead of chapped. If you recall my Colourpop review, I was having a hard time removing Dr. M (bright green) without looking like the Hulk had a makeout session with a green alien.

I will say that because there is an oil in this, it can slip around and darker shades can then feather out and get around your mouth. I fix this by putting concealer around my mouth if I’m reapplying lipstick directly after.

The littlest bit of product goes a long way, so this tube will last you a bit. I did notice that with red and berry shaded colors this product will not fully remove any staining on your lips. However, I do feel this product is meant more for the Nyx Liquid Suede lipsticks, which makes sense.

In that case, this product works phenomenally, but the Liquid Suede lippies are not too difficult to remove to begin with. I have never had a problem with any of them, even the red ones, staining my lips at all. So, if you get them for those, this product is perfect.

I still don’t know if this product makes it possible to switch colors easily since it doesn’t remove staining, but it does make it easier to remove liquid lipstick without smearing it all over my face, thus giving me the appearance of a glamour-clown.

What are your thoughts on this product?

I hope you all enjoyed this fairly winded, yet short review! As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you stop by my blog again soon!

Shop My Stash: Nyx Matte Lipsticks

nyx matte lipstick

Hey beauties,

I have another Shop my Stash post today! I’m still going through my things and finding old favorites to share with you all. Today, I’m sharing my little collection of Nyx Matte lipsticks.

These retail between $5-6 at most places, but I typically snag these on sale at Ulta. I believe there are 33 shades total in this line, which is awesome! There’s a good range of nudes, pinks, and some purples, but what’s really worth noting is their range of red shades. Are we surprised that I find their reds to be the best in this line?

Seriously, there are quite a few shades and I have 6 to share in this post.

nyx matte lipsticks

First, the packaging of these are really cute considering the price. I actually like that the color swatch is in the middle, so I can see them when they’re standing upright in my acrylic organizer and I don’t have to look on the bottom. What’s even better is that the middle is clear, so what you’re seeing in the middle is the actual color of the lipstick. It takes all of the guess work out of these from buying to applying.

Formula wise, these are very pigmented, yet very comfortable feeling. If I had to compare them to any other drugstore matte lipstick, it would be the Milani Moisture Matte formula. These apply so easily, and I can typically get the desired color I want with one pass on the lips.

I have mentioned a few of these shades before in previous posts, and I do highly recommend them. I have never found these to dry my lips out or look too crumbly throughout the day unless it was after a meal.

I would say the lasting power is pretty awesome as well. They last longer than say the Colourpop mattes, and probably last a little longer than even the Milani ones, because the Milani ones tend to slip a bit because they’re so hydrating.

From the wrist down:

Merlot: A deep wine shade with a bit of a purple tone to it. I think this shade is absolutely stunning in the Fall and Winter. It’s not too pink for my taste, and not super berry toned either. It’s a perfect in between for people with a love for vampy shades like myself.

Perfect Red: I have mentioned this shade on my blog before, and I will say this again…this is absolutely the perfect red. It lives up to its name. It’s very neutral toned, so it’s flattering on everyone. This is your ideal 1950’s bombshell red if you’re in the market for an affordable one.

Alabama: I did a lip swatch of this during my Fall lipstick challenge in September, and I fell in love with this. It’s a deep brown toned red, and it’s so beautiful. This is a shade of red that I wear so often in the cooler months.

Eden: This is more of a bright, blue toned red. Blue tones are going to make your teeth look whiter, and this shade is a beautiful red as well.

Whipped Caviar: It took me so long to get this shade. It was sold out for the longest time because it was a “Kylie Jenner” shade. I’m not into it for that, but on me it’s a “my lips but better” shade. This is a muted mauve shade that is the perfect nude for fair skin tones, in my opinion.

Tea Rose: This is my latest addition, and I am so in love with this shade! I love mauve shades in general, and this one almost looks like a muted plum shade on me. I think this is the perfect shade for anyone that wants to darken up their Fall makeup wardrobe but doesn’t enjoy very dark shades or reds.

Well, that’s everything in my little Nyx Matte lipstick collection! I really hope you all enjoyed this post. I love this matte line, and I find they are very underrated.

What’s your favorite shade? Do you own any of these? Talk lipstick with me in the comments!

As always, thanks for reading,and I hope you’re all having wonderful weekends!

FOTD: Fall Inspired (Video Tutorial Included)

IMG_1906

Hey lovelies,

This week’s face of the day post is actually a video tutorial! I really wanted to do a fall inspired tutorial, and I’ve been feeling these wine and plummy red shades lately, so I decided to just smack those colors right on my eyeballs and lips.

Ever have one of those days where it’s just not a good selfie day? I was having one of those days, but I’m overall happy with how this look turned out, other than the fact that I somehow forgot to include an inner corner highlight. I wasn’t going to not upload this based on just that, but it’s all good. I think it looks fine without it.

Anyway, I really wanted to do a video tutorial using the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 palette. It’s one that I use so often, but so many of the shades remind me of Fall. That and many of the shades in this palette are reminiscent of a few Lorac palettes and the Naked 3 palette, so it’s an awesome money saver without skimping out on quality! I always talk about how amazing it is, so I decided to put my brush where my mouth is and show you all. Okay, I put my brush where…my eye is?? You know what I mean.

Products Used:

Maybelline Blur and Illuminate Primer
