I have a love hate relationship with NYX. Some things I love other things I hate but when they do something right they tear it up! The Lip Balm in Obrigado is something that is really right!
Obrigado is a beautiful red shade and at $4 its a deal/steal. The color and moisture level are both right where they should be. Some days I just don’t want to put on lipstick or gloss but I want to “treat” my lips and still look decent. This is what I pull out and use on those days. Take a look at how pretty Obrigado is!
The first time I saw this lipstick I thought it looked exactly like Mac Impassioned. After digging out my Impassioned lipstick tube and putting them side by side I saw that they aren’t exact dupes but after wearing NYX Fire lipstick I must say I like it better!
This color is inexpensive and a perfect pop of pink. I like it better than Mac Impassioned because I find that color to be not as deep as I would like and Fire pops against my skin tone more. I swatched both colors on my hand for comparison.
NYX Fire (approx. $7) and Mac Impassioned ($15)
Speaking of Mac guess what came today, Marilyn!
It’s online (maccosmetics.com) tomorrow and in stores on October 4th! I’ll do a video and swatches tomorrow.
Have you ever tried a NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil? I know the Jumbo Eye Pencils are apart of many makeup collections but the Lip Pencils are really nice too. I love using slim pencil-like lip products because I don’t often use a lip brush. Using something like this pencil makes your lips look perfectly drawn in with color very quickly.
I got Hera #722 and I really like it. It’s a really pretty pink-ish purple shade. I think I used it for the first time right after I got it so I didn’t take a picture of it looking all perfect and brand new. So please excuse the first picture below. Sometimes I get so excited I just start slathering things on my lips without thinking about it.
NYX Hera Jumbo Pencil #722 (approx. $4.50)
Hera is super moisturizing on the lips and goes on smooth as butter. I checked out the NYX website (www.nyxcosmetics.com) and there are thirty shades available. I didn’t even know they had that many. It might be time to get some additional colors. You know strictly for review purposes…..ha!
Let me know if you have tried one of these and what color. I’d love to know!
Here is the YouTube video I showed this color in as well as some other NYX products just in case you missed it.
