Paris and Milan: A Tale of Two Lippies

Three Things I Love:
  • themed posts
  • lippies
  • lame puns
Nyx RLS Paris

Nyx SMLC Milan

I got Nyx Round Lipstick in Paris and Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in MilanDigital Traincase at the booth during the Philippine Cosmetics Expo a few months ago along with Nyx Round Lipstick in Pink Lyric

Price:
  • PHP 150 for RLS
  • PHP 320 for SMLC (they're cheaper now @ PHP 280)




Some info:

Paris is a lovely pale pink and it seems to be very popular with bloggers I follow. It is one of the only two round lipsticks I own.  Milan looks very similar but brighter and redder.  It's my first Soft Matte Lip Cream. I planned to get Addis Ababa but I wussed out and got a safer color.

What I Like

(Paris)
  • It goes on smoothly and has a beautiful finish.
  • It's not drying
  • The color is really pretty.

(Milan)
  • Goes on smoothly when first applied.
  • Very pigmented and has a nice finish (I love matte lippies the best!)

What I Don't Like:

(Paris)
  • Gets kind ofmushy in our climate
  • The soapy smell NYX RLS is known for is pretty strong.

(Milan)
  • The cream dries out after a whileand settles into the lines of your lips (can be avoided by using lipbalm underneath.)
  • The vanilla/buttery scent is kind of strong (like original Carmex.) Not that nice, but tolerable.

ETC.
  • Paris doesn't look that nice on me. It makes me look a little ashy. It's pretty,  but I really like brighter colors.
  • I didn't like the SMLC's at first, but it has grown on me. Looks like I'll be getting Addis Ababa after all!
