New Lip Stuff

Took advantage of Multiply's free shipping promo and got a few gifts for some people and NYX stuff for myself as well.



  • Slim Lipliner Pencil in Dolly Pink
  • Matte Lipsticks in Audrey (top) and Angel (bottom)
  • Round Lipstick in Narcissus




Dolly Pink is a light purplish pink- very pretty and girly. I like its color on its own but it also looks great with round lipsticks I already have like Paris (helps it last longer, too.)

Narcissus is a shiny pale pink. Needless to say, I love the name. Looks very pretty. Goes on kind of sheer, though. Not opaque like other round lipsticks I own. I layer it over brighter pink and fuschia lippies, and it does a great job of making them more wearable and less drying. =)

Audrey



I finished my tube of Soft Matte Lip Cream in Milan, and since I'm not that crazy about the formulation of that product, I decided to get the Matte Lipstick in Audrey because I remember seeing swatches of the two side by side where they were almost identical. Audrey is less pigmented, I think. And the finish is not as matte. 

Angel

Angel is a kind of reddish coral and so perfect for summer. I thought it would be similar to Antwerp, but from what I've seen in pics, it's closer to San Paolo. 

Let me just say that I am in love with NYXs Matte Lipstick formula. I have three now so far:

L-R: Whipped Caviar, Audrey, Angel

They go on so smoothly and are not drying at all. I love how pigmented they are and the scent is milder and more pleasant than the SMLCs. The ones I have last quite long, too but I think it might depend on the shade. The finish is not really matte, though. Just semi-matte. SMLCs are more matte, which means I prefer them for certain shades.

Thanks for reading, 
Jackie

  1. I've been wanting to try Angel but scared that it could dry my lips since it is matte. But it looks so pretty that I now want to try it. :)

  3. Hi Pammy! I don't think dryness would be a problem with this. To be honest, it really doesn't feel like a matte lippe. =))

  4. Gellie, they're not drying in my experience, pero baka depende din sa shade. Pag mas dark siguro mas drying, but these are moist for a matte lipstick. =))

  8. Nice haul! I only have one NYX lippy. Unfortunately it's not a very flattering shade for me. I should've bought another shade na lang :/
