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.

IMG_4283

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.

nyx liquid suede

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.

nyx matte lipsticks

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.

nyx high voltgage lipsticks

 

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.

nyx wicked lipstick

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!

Face of the Day: Cool Toned Fall Look

colourpop kapow

Hey lovelies,

I know I have been a bit MIA lately, but I promise nothing is wrong. I’ve just been kind of taking small breaks here and there. I’ve been thinking of changing my blog up a bit and doing more lifestyle than beauty posts (I miss doing lifestyle posts) and doing most of my reviews on Youtube. Feel free to leave input, because even though my blog is my creative space, I do value the opinions of you all since I consider you all my friends.

Today’s look is a cool toned Fall look, and was supposed to be a tutorial for my Youtube channel. While I was editing iMovie crashed on me, and somehow while it was crashing it corrupted the files on my memory card. To say the least, I am frustrated and upset about it. I don’t feel I will be able to film this again with Holiday things coming up, so I’m going to try and explain this look to the best of my abilities since it was requested.

If this look is familiar to you, I’ve done it before for an Instagram look. It was actually way more popular than I thought it was going to be.

colourpop kapow

Base: Primer is the Laura Mercier hydrating primer and the elf under eye primer.

Foundation: Tarte Iluminating serum mixed with the Loreal Infallible demi matte foundation. This foundation is super full coverage, and I like to mix it with the serum to take it down a notch so it looks better and less cakey on my dry skin. I always use my real techniques sponge for this as well, as it gives it more of an airbrushed look and takes off any excess product.

Concealer: Nyx HD concealers in Lavender and Porcelain. I do this to brighten my undereyes, but I do not do the big huge triangle thing many do. I just focus it where my dark circles are and use the real techniques sponge again to pick up any excess product.

Powders: I set my face with my usual powder, the Laura Geller balance and brightening powder in porcelain. My under eyes are set with the physians formula correcting powder in translucent.

Contour: I used the Wet n Wild contour duo in Dulce De Leche to lay down my contour and warm up my face just a tiny bit, and then used the Nyx HD blush in taupe to further define my cheekbones using the Sonia Kashuk fan brush. I also used this to contour my nose. I always blend my contour out using the City Color Cosmetics duo ended brush now, it’s wonderful.

Blush: Milani’s “Romantic Rose” blush which is a stunning cool toned mauve shade for fall, and is permanent to their rose blush collection. I used a Sedona Lace 813 brush for this.

Highlight: The new Ofra Cosmetics and Dupe That collab highlight in “You Glow Girl.” Seriously, you need this highlight. It’s a very cool toned shimmery pink shade that looks almost blue in some lights. It’s so gorgeous, and I feel like a Winter Goddess in it. I applied my highlight with my real techniques setting brush, which is awesome for highlighting.

IMG_3273 colourpop central perk

Brows: My usual combination of the Nyx tame and frame in espresso set with their brow mascara in “black.”

Eye primer: The Hard Candy eye primer. I love this, and it’s only $5 at the drugstore.

Palette of choice: Morphe 35O.

I know what you’re thinking, everyone loves this palette for the warm tones. On the left hand side of the palette, there are some incredible cool toned shades that I feel are not hyped up enough.

I used:

morphe 35O tutorial

Those shades with the coffee mugs? Those are the ones I used 🙂

I placed that cool transition shade in the crease towards my brows using the elf cosmetics concealer brush, which is an awesome crease brush for transition shades.

I then placed the lighter taupe shade in the third row a little beneath it, and the darker taupe shade in the crease as well using my Luxie fluffy brush. I love putting 3 shades in the crease, I think it gives a really awesome effect.

I placed the light kinda shimmery white shade up top on my lid, and then placed the darkest taupe shade on the outside.

Now, for the burgundy color I had to use Colourpop’s Central Perk shadow. I like to use the Urban Decay brush from the Naked 3 palette for this, because it’s flat and very dense and stiff. I then blended the shape out using my Crown fluffy blending brush, which is my absolute favorite blending brush in my collection.

colourpop kapow

In my water line and lower lash line I placed Nyx Cosmetic’s “Rust” jumbo eye pencil, which is a really pretty reddish color and blended Central perk with it.

Liner is the NYC liduid liner and lashes are the Eylure and Vegas Nay Grand Glamor lashes, which is fluffy and glorious.

Inner corner highlight is my favorite one, Urban Decay’s “Polyster Bride” and mascara is the Maybelline Lash Sensational.

Lipstick is Nyx’s 1000 years lip liner topped with Colourpop’s ultra matte lippie in Kapow. This is limited edition, but it’s so beautiful and it’s an almost spot on dupe for Coloured Raine’s Soul lipstick.

I set everything using the Urban Decay all night setting spray.

That’s it for the details behind this look! I hope I was able to give enough details, but if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask! I love chatting with you all.

I really hope you all enjoyed this look, and I am so sorry once again that I was not able to get the video up on my Youtube channel. Hopefully, the iMovie thing was a fluke thing and won’t happen again.

I hope you’re all having wonderful days, and please find me on social media if you want to!

Face of the Day: Mauve

naked 3

Today’s “Face of the Day” features a few oldies and some newbies.

I love my Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, but I find that I rarely pull it out for whatever reason. I’m trying to use it more, so I decided to do a mauve themed look.

naked 3

For my base I used the new BH Cosmetics HD Studio Pro foundation (review will be coming up soon once I test it out more) and I used the Too Faced HangoveRX primer just to hydrate my face a bit. I actually did powder my face a bit with the Laura Geller balance and brightening powder in “porcelain”

Contour is the darker shade from the “dulce de leche” Wet n Wild contour palette. This contour shade is awesome for pale skin tones, and it’s totally worth the $4 even though I can’t really use the highlighting side.

Blush is “Cameo” by Hikari Cosmetics, which is just a really pretty light pink shade. It’s also matte! I was so impressed by the shade “Tango” that I got from Hikari in my Ipsy bag, that I ended up taking advantage of their coupon code last month and ordered another blush. They’re really buttery and pigmented, and there’s a lot of product in the pan.

Highlight is “Spoon” by Colourpop Cosmetics, and I just did a full review with swatches on the 3 I ordered. Spoon is a lovely champagne shade, which is what I gravitate towards on a daily basis.

IMG_7234

My brows are Nyx Tame and Frame in “espresso” which might be a bit too light now that my hair is freshly dyed black, but oh well.

For my eyes I used “Tease” by Urban Decay as my transition shade, and then packed “Nooner” from the Naked 3 into my crease. I then took “Swan” by Colour pop and put that all over my lid, and then put “Liar” from the Naked 3 on the outer corner of my eye.

Liner is Physicians Formula eye booster in “Ultra black” and lashes are Kiss #11

Lower lash line is “Tease” and “Nooner” blended out with Rimmel Scandal eyes in “Nude” on my water line. Mascara is Covergirl Supersizer (also new to drugstores) “Strange” from the Naked 3 is on my brow bone, and “Swan” is my inner corner highlight.

IMG_7225

My lips are lined with “Lumiere” by Colourpop, with “Lala” by Nyx cosmetics over top. LaLa is like Thalia’s darker sister. A bit more brown toned, but still so so gorgeous. If you haven’t ever tried Nyx round case lipsticks, do it. They’re some of my favorite lipsticks in my collection, and that’s even over many of my higher end lipsticks.

IMG_7229

That’s it for today’s Face of the Day post, I really hope you all enjoyed this mauve themed look!

As always, thanks for reading, and if this is your first time stopping by my blog, I hope you decide to follow me and stay awhile!

I’m pretty bored today, so I’m going to do a quick “face of the day” post since I haven’t done one in a long time.

Review and Swatches: Nyx Intense Butter Gloss and High Voltage Lipstick

IMG_4337

Before I start this post, I just wanted to say that I had typed out most of this post once before…and wordpress decided to magically eat it and it disappeared into the blogger’s graveyard that’s laced with our tears. I was so livid, and decided to step away for a day and just recharge a bit and type this back out once I had calmed down.

Now I have calmed down 😀

I picked up 4 of the new intense butter glosses and 2 of the high voltage lipsticks at Ulta a few weeks back. My local Ulta had just sat them out and I still had my 20% coupon to use, so that’s what I used it on. They were also BOGO 50%, so it made for a great deal! Anyone else do this thing where you don’t even care to drop money on high end products, but when it comes to drugstore products you are cheap as shit? Because I do that.

Anyway, the original Nyx butter glosses are some of the only glosses I own, and they are incredible. I usually have one (creme brulee) in my purse at all times for emergencies, and I adore the formula. And the smell…it’s like they put the essence of a cupcake inside of every tube. The butter glosses are pigmented, but I guess Nyx wanted to take it up a notch and intensify it (har har har).

First, I noticed the packaging is about the same. The tubes are the same color as what’s inside of them, which is nice. I don’t have to look at the bottom of the tube to figure out which color it is. Second, they still smell like cupcakes. #hellyes

Third, these are freakin’ amazing. I am in love with the new intense butter glosses. They go on so smooth and are so opaque. They feel very nice on the lips, and wear very well throughout the span of a few hours. Now, because these are glossy glosses they do not have the most intense staying power, but I have found that they wear off nicely. One of the things that I usually hate about glosses is that they wear so badly after a few hours. I put it on and next thing I know I have gloss on my teeth and somehow it’s on my face because my hair gets caught in it…it’s just not a good time. I don’t have too many issues of that nature with the original butter glosses or the intense ones.

They do feel slightly sticky (typical) but nothing that gives me the heebie jeebies and makes me want to remove it immediately.

IMG_4321

Chocolate Crepe- A very true brown gloss. I love this color so much, and it seems that many others do as well because it sold out online pretty quickly when these released, and I snagged the last one at my Ulta.

IMG_4322

Toasted Marshmallow- a very dark plum color with a bit of a brown undertone. Probably my favorite color in the entire line. I have a photo of me wearing it on my “favorites friday” post, and I meant it when I said I am going to get a back up. My love for this color is legit.

IMG_4243
(another view of toasted marshmallow)

IMG_4323

Spice Cake- this was a purchase a bit out of my usual comfort zone. This is a very dark raspberry color, and I have to say I love it. I think this would be a great color for the transition between winter and spring for those into that kind of thing, but this is a color I can see myself rocking all year.

IMG_4324

Apple Crisp- a shiny true red. Another beautiful shade in this line. I love red lip products, which should be apparent by now. I knew I had to have this color when I saw them being swatched online by several youtubers. If you love red colors, get this. It’s super pigmented and a great color to keep on you for touch ups, if needed.

Now, on to the two high voltage lipsticks I picked up. These remind me of the original round case lipsticks in the sense that they are creamy still, but I have noticed that the high voltage line is very pigmented. If you own a lot of the round case ones like I do, you may know what I’m saying when I say that sometimes the darker colors from that line can be a bit patchy and uneven while applying. The high voltage ones are not patchy at all, in my opinion, but they are smaller than the original round cases.

I’m also not as fond of the packaging…it seems a bit…cheap. However, I’m not too much of a packaging snob, it’s the product inside that matters the most to me.

IMG_4325

This color is “Burlesque” and it’s another true red (surprise!). I love the way this one applied and the color pay off. It reminds me a lot of Chaos, which is one of my all time favorite lipstick colors in the world.

IMG_4326

The last color I have to swatch is “Feline” which is a dark brown toned red. This is a very beautiful and vampy color if that’s what you’re into (which I am all about that vamp life). There seems to maybe be a bit of a purple tone to it, but it pulls a bit more on the brown side on me.

Anyway, that is all the ones I have for now, but there are definitely more from the high voltage line that I want to pick up. If you have also tried these out, let me know what you think! Link me to your blog posts if you have one, I would love to read them 🙂

Face of the Day/Quick Halloween Idea

IMG_2473
IMG_2475
I know that not everyone procrastinates, but some people do. I am doing a “face of the day” post today that will double as a quick Halloween idea for anyone in a rush this Friday. It’s not exactly a “Halloween” look for me since I love pin up and rockabilly makeup and fashion. I will include products used, a quick hairstyle (hair is not exactly my forte) and a few outfit ideas. I hope you all enjoy ❤

I am doing a more Rockabilly type of styling today, but this look can easily be a vintage pin up look if you curl your hair and wear a vintage fitting (think cinched waist, flowers etc) dress or pencil skirt. I chose this look to do as a "last minute" look because typically many people have the items and makeup needed on hand or can find very quickly and for very cheap last minute.

Rockabilly makeup is typically very matte. The eyes, the face, and the lips…matte. So, you're going to want to possibly exfoliate and moisturize very well before starting this look. I also put on lip balm before starting on anything because matte lips can be super drying.
Products used to create my look today:
Anastasia Dip Brow in “Ebony”
Nyx Jumbo eye pencil in white- used as an eyeshadow base
Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette- Heaven all over the lid and Cashmere Bunny in the crease
Physicians Formula eye booster pen (holy grail product) in ultra black
Red Cherry Lashes in #605
Wet n Wild Mega Length Mascara on bottom lashes and to blend false lashes
Body Shop tea tree face primer
Elf acne fighting foundation in “porcelain” with 2 pumps white manic panic mixed in
La Girl HD pro concealer under the eyes
BH Cosmetics Studio Pro powder to set and further mattify look
Kat Von D blush in “Essex”
A little bit of Nyx matte blush in “light” to contour a little, but not too much
I wanted to give a little bit of dimension on my face, so I used the Mary Lou-Manizer highlight on the very tops of my cheeks
Nyx Matte finishing spray to set everything and make the look last
Nyx soft matte lip cream in “Monte Carlo”

IMG_2474
IMG_2472

There are so many different ways to style this look, which is why I love it so much.
If you’re in a hurry, you can do the “poof” thing with your hair and place a bandana in it. You could pull it back into flowers, curl it, do victory rolls if you’re daring. It’s honestly up to you and your preferences. Personally, if I am in a hurry I love how a cute bandana and earrings pulls the look together instantly.
IMG_2477
Here are some more ideas. These are all things I already own. As you can tell, the possibilities are almost endless. If this is a look you want to recreate one day, or even for Halloween, be creative. Interpret it as you wish.

Fall face: rainy day vamp

IMG_2070.JPG

It’s a very dark and stormy day here in my city. One of those chili days where it’s taking 2 cups of coffee just to wake up and all I want to do is cuddle with my babies and sleep. So, I decided to play with my makeup a bit to keep me busy. I tried something new and used colourpop cosmetics eyeshadow in “cheeky” as a transition color, and I love it! It’s a really peachy color that I feel would work for most people as a transition color. Other than that for my eyes I used the coastal scents revealed 2 palette, which is probably my second favorite palette to use. I used the wine and matte brown colors on the outside and a shimmery bronze on my lid.
I also tried out my coastal scents contouring brush I got in the mail. It’s way smaller than I expected, but it does work. It’s not great at blending the contour, but it’s great at laying it down and creating the line itself. I have Nyx simply vamp in “enamored” on my lips, and I’m in love with this color. I’m more of a matte lip kind of gal, but there’s just something about the rusted look with this lipstick that draws me in.
I’m off to enjoy a lazy rainy day with my girls. What are some of your favorite rainy day activities?
