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. =)
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 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,
