I find the best place to purchase these on the web is through Joy's Cosmetics store on ebay- click here- where you can get a bunch of items say 3 l/s for about $7 and I have ordered from her so much &have had no problems at all!
Anyway- onto the swatches =] Pic Heavy so apologies in advance! Also, click the pics to view them larger!
|Harmonica- Frosty, hard to apply from the tube without it being streaky.|
|Strawberry Milk- Matte light pink, opaque compared to harmonica.|
|Narcissus- Matte bubble gum pink|
|Tea Rose- Matte muted pink, great for everyday|
|Margarita- gorgeous shimmery coral colour. I love this over pinky L/L|
|Chloe- umm not matte but not shimmery, fuchsia that pulls more purple. Had to capture in flash pics!|
|Iris- Frosty, pretty much the same texture as Harmonica. Not so sure about this colour on me yet.|
|Summer Love- Not quite matte or shimmery nude. 1st pic looks a little too yucky on me but I like it in natural light/ full face (so if you're only ever going to look at my lips up close with a light then don't :P)|
|Pumpkin Pie- More orangey then summer love, & same texture/ finish|
|Fig- Matte Light Pink, soo pretty! However I didn't apply it too prettily here though :p|
|Spell Bound- One of my faves! Gorgeous Matte Hot Pink. It was hard for me to choose between this & Louisiana.|
|Eros- Vibrant Matte Red, gorgeous! Probably the only way I like to wear it in public though is blotted out.|
*phew* that was a lot! Now- Lip Liners.
|My Faves have to be Rose & Pinky,|
Rose- Gorgeous light pink colour, I got this because I thought it would match a lot of pink l/s
Dolly Pink- I love this colour too but the texture is harder to work with. Makes bright pink l/s look cooler- as opposed to warmer haha.
Pinky- Gorgeous bright pink! Works great with Spell Bound. I love it underneath Margarita too.
Mauve- It is a tad too dark as a MLBB colour however I like to use it to outline my lips with nude lip liner- blended in well.
Bloom- Similar to Pinky but pulls more burgundy, gorgeous under colours like Chloe.
Prune-A dark ummm prune colour lol, I don't think I will have much use for this (I lie- I do have some pruney l/s that would match this) But I would probably use this for a gradient look.
So thats it of the l/l for now,Next on my list is definitely tangerine! I got bloom & prune as a gift from Joy's Cosmetics & probably wouldn't have bought them anyway but I would totally buy Bloom again if I need to.
Lastly- Mega Shine Lip Glosses. As I mentioned I only have a small collection (Working on it!)
Sugar Pie looks good with a darker smokey eye, well same as Smokey Look & Lala is just a gorgeous bright pink lip gloss! I love these because they are not very sticky (I still have the hair in lipgloss problem though -.- but my hair gets in the way all the time) & I really like the smell! Kinda sweet, reminds me of some kind of lolly but I have no idea which.
Anyhoo I hope this is helpful! Well I hope so coz it took ages to do :p lol. Thanks for looking!
Do you have any fave Nyx Lip Products & which? (based on pics, and/or your own experiences)
