Lip Swatch Spam with NYX Round Lipsticks

Disclaimer: As you are probably aware, there was a big incident involving NYX Cosmetics.  Due to their lack of customer service and questionable business practices I cannot recommend buying directly from them.  If you wish to purchase NYX products I would recommend Cherry Culture, Beauty Joint, or Ulta.

I bought this lipsticks (and a ton more NYX makeup) before the big incident. I struggled with showing it or not on my blog for awhile, but I figured all of you are big girls (and guys!) and can make your own decisions on what companies you want to buy from.  I spent good money on these things and I'll be damned if I'm not, at the very least, gonna use 'em.

Now enough with the drama, and on to the lippies.  At $4 each, and frequently on sale at Cherry Culture, I think these lipsticks are a good deal.  They are really creamy and glossy, but still manage to stay pigmented unlike some glossy lipsticks.  You know with some lipsticks the color really clings to your lips and almost seems to become a part of them?  Well, these are not really like that.  I think because of how creamy they are some of them seem to sit on top of the lips and don't really sink in.  Due to the glossiness/creaminess they aren't really the longest wearing lipsticks, but like with most, the darker and bolder colors will give you a longer wear time.  It sounds like I have a lot of complaints about them, but I actually really do like them.  I really like the colors I have and I think they look great layered with lipgloss.  For example, I don't really care for Pumpkin Pie on it's own, but it looks amazing with a peachy coral lipgloss on top.

Aaaand, I've run out of things to say, so on to the pictures!

  10. @Sakura- Thank you!

    @frugalspender19- The more I use these, the more I like them. And you're welcome!

    @Makeup Zombie- You have the most amazing lips/lip swatches so that is high praise. Thank you!

    @Baroque in Babylon- I like Pumpkin Pie way more than I thought I would.

    @Vulcan_Butterfly- There are so many colors I had a hard time decided which ones to get it. I really like Rose Bud too. It's almost a frost, but it has gold shimmer instead of silver/white shimmer. It's pretty.

  11. The swatches are great! I wish I remember which lipstick(s) I ordered. I have to wait until Monday for the things to arrive (I had them shipped to my work, so I'm hoping they come early so I can play with everything during my lunch break)

  14. My sole makeup item this month bought was a lovely pink lip gloss called Love Struck from Marie Natie Natural Cosmetics. I want to buy a natural cosmetic line lip gloss of stellar, but my initial thought of Love Struck is very positive. http://umakeup.com
