NYX Haul! Round Lipsticks and Tinted Lip Spas

NYX Round Lipsticks & Tinted Lip Spas
I recently ordered some NYX lip products and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of these lip products. For mere dollars per lipstick, these are great! They NYX Round Lipsticks are cheap as chips and have amazing color payoff, though the longevity is definitely not the same as MAC or other higher end lipsticks. These are the type of lipsticks that you will have to reapply frequently, and for the darker colors, using a lip liner pencil might be essential.

The Tinted Lip Spas are wonderful, I got Sake and Juicy. They have a light menthol tingling sensation, but not to the point where it burns. I would compare these to MAC's tinted lip balms. They don't have a glossy finish, but leave a nice color glaze on those days where you want to keep things low key, with the added benefit that they are very moisturizing on the lips. They are great to just throw into your purse and use them essentially like a lip balm, but they add a bit of color as well. My favorites from this order are Sake Tinted Lip Spa, and the lipsticks in Thalia, Femme, Georgia and Chaos.

If you want to order NYX products online, I would try out Shop Craze or Ms.Cuppycakes for etailers, both ship internationally and have good prices. I ordered these through cherryculture.com and had to wait a month and a half for my order! Totally unacceptable, I never have to wait that long for orders from the States, so I do not recommend.

  3. I love NYX, but they never sell it in my little corner of Canada. Thanks for the links to etailers, it will definitely come to be useful in the future! (You know ... when I have money.)

    Love the swatches! Just had a quick question, is Thalia comprable to MAC's "Modesty" or "Creme in your Coffee" cremesheen lipsticks? I have both and don't want to purchase Thalia if it looks just like it! Thank you so much :)

  11. I love NYX Round Lipsticks. I ordered 3 of them last year and was really impressed with the good quality. They don't dry out my lips and the colours are pretty.

    I haven't ordered from CherryCulture, always planned to but since you said about their shipping I think I'll order elsewhere. Going to try http://nonpareilboutique.com - they sell NYX lipsticks and jumbo pencils, etc. So we'll find out how long it takes them to send to England.

    Thanks for the video, Julie.
