I was organizing my stuff yesterday so I decided to do a quick lip swatch of some of my recent NYX round lipsticks.
Here is the arm swatch. This is without flash and the colors actually look closer to this than the lip swatches.
Here is Orange Soda. I forgot to get one with flash but basically it looks white on my lips.
Here’s pumpkin pie. It’s like orange soda but much more wearable.
Here’s Thalia. In person it’s darker. It’s like a purply, grey brown.
Here’s Power. It’s like a crazier version of Thalia. It’s like a light purple with brownish undertones.
Here’s Frappucino. I didn’t swatch b52 because it basically looks the same but a little more dark. In person Frappucino looks darker than this. It’s a brownish nude.
Here’s Iced Coffee and its actually a jumbo lip pencil. In person its not so pink. Its very nude brown.
Next is Tea. It actually looks pretty close to the flash one. It’s just more brown.
Here’s fig. I don’t have this on the arm swatch but this is a really cute bright pink.
And finally here’s electra. Neither of the pictures below really show how it is. It’s a classic red with a slightly darker tone. I really like it!
Again, these pictures don’t really show the true shade of the colors because my camera and lighting are not great but I tried my best to describe the shade and tone of the colors. My favorites are fig, iced coffee, thalia and frappucino.
I did a little ulta exchanging today because I decided not to try the bio oil after reading more reviews for oily skinned folks like myself. I also had to exchange my other Revlon colorstay foundation because I held my first bottle up next to my Revlon photoready and they were completely different, the colorstay was much too light so I brought it back in to find a darker match especially since summer is fast on the way.
I got a darker shade of the foundation and exchanged the bio oil for more nyx lipsticks.
I got the colorstay foundation in natural tan. I think its like the third darkest color they had.
I got four lipsticks from Nyx:
L to R: Orange Soda, Pumpkin Pie, Electra, Tea
As you can see, I’m into nudes and browns and orange nudes lately. I’ll do lips watches in another post. Orange soda is very pale orange on my lips and does not look good at all. I’ll probably return it. Pumpkin pie is cuter and more true to the color. It’s a nudey orange but doesn’t appear nearly white on your lips like orange soda does. Electra is a darker matte red but I haven’t tried it on my lips yet. Tea is a brown that actually is quite cute and wearable.
So far of all my NYX lipsticks I’m really digging Frappucino, Power, Thalia, Tea, and Tea Rose. I plan to get femme next, it’s a bright orange sort of like MAC’s Morange but neither of my two regular Ulta’s have it so I’ll probably have to go out to a further location to look for it.
