NYX Lipsticks

Another small haul from Cherry Culture: NYX Round and Black Label lipsticks. I have been hearing that these were really good and very inexpensive. I got the round lipsticks for $2 each and the Black Label for $7. I have to say, I love them all. I was going to go to Mac to get me a fuschia color, but decided to get NYX instead. Great move....saved me alot of $.

I have tested out a few of them and they last about as long as any of my other lipsticks. NYX has tons of shades to choose from. I will be placing my orders with them when I need new colors.

Here are some swatches:

In case you can't see the names, in order, they are: Nude, Chloe, Fusion, Pandora, and Lousiana. I love them all.

Here is a look with Chloe (and more Nixie shadows):

I lined me lips with Mac creamstick liner Velvetella and filled in with NYX Chloe. The lipstick was very pigmented, so it only took one coat. I didn't use a gloss since it already had a little shine.

For the eyes, I use Architecture paint on lid and Fawntastic cream color base on the browbones as a base. Then I applied Nixie shadows: Burlesque on lid, Champagne at the browbone and swept it down, Amber to the crease, and Mac Sketch in the outer V.

For the face, I used the same steps as my everyday look tutorial, except I contoured with Cargo Matte Bronzer in Medium and used Mac Blush Afterdusk (this was a limited edition).
