|NYX lippies! / Outdoor, overcast|
Let me get this out...I am addicted to NYX lip products. They cover quite a range of products, finishes, color ranges...they just get it! Here is what I picked up from Ulta a few weeks ago. Do note that some of these are repurchases, just in different colors. I will continue to go back to all of these formulations.
|Lt: Scarlett, T: Bonfire, Rt: Tea Rose|
Left: Pump it Up lip plumper in Scarlett. A sheerly tinted, lip plumping gloss that works! The color Scarlett is just a tinge of a pinkish red. This is in a tube with doe foot applicator and can be found for around $5.49 USD. The formula is not sticky whatsoever. It adheres nicely to the lips without causing anything to get stuck to them :). This does sting people. I am not a wimp, especially for all things beauty, but it does have a bite. Licking this is not advised...but I can tell you, after my burny tongue, this does not taste like anything. You just get the tingly sensation and that does not last very long. A slight flush does occur on the lips...natural, and no ring around the mouth looking painful thing either! Double yay!
Top: Xtreme Lip Cream in Bonfire. Thick, matte, long lasting, staining perfection in a bottle! An intensely pigmented product this is a gloss, cream, and stain in one. I would call this one a bright reddish rose. It comes in tube packaging with a doe foot applicator and usually retails around $5.99 USD. The lip creams are thick...really thick. They have a nice glide on the lips and play well with other products. Upon application, the formula is very creamy and shiny. After a few hours of wear, it dries down to a comfortable matte. And even longer into wear, it thins out to a stain. The wear is very comfortable in all of its incarnations.
Right: Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Tea Rose. A sheer, non-sticky gloss with milky attributes. Like the others, it comes in a tube with long doe foot applicator. I have found this at retail for $5.49 USD. Tea Rose is a very MLBB color. A mix between a bubblegum pink and healthy beige. This formula is light on the lips, and though it does wear away after about 2 hours in my experience, it leaves a nice non tinted sheen on the lips. Very moisturizing and an easy choice on days when I want a quick, no fuss lip.
