NYX lipstick review/swatches!


Hi everyone!

A lot of you may have heard of NYX cosmetics and for those of you who live in the UK, know that they don't sell in local drugstores (as far as I know). I've heard a lot of good things about their LSS - Round lipsticks and I was blown away when I saw their colour range
I was tempted to buy off their official website until I noticed the cost of shipping and realised that the price of shipping rose the more you spent! So I did a little research to find a cheaper alternative to buying these lipsticks and came across this seller on ebay

Basically all you have to do is purchase the order and they will email you to choose 6 colours of your choice. It's so simple and they deliver pretty quickly! The service was great and they kept me informed about my order through emails.

The only problem I had was choosing my colours, normally I complain that there isn't a big enough range to choose from, but I actually found it more difficult to choose from a larger range as a lot of colours looked so similar! As if this wasn't bad enough, after watching a few youtube videos and looking at swatches, I realised that the colours that they show on the NYX website wasn't as accurate as I thought. Of course this is normally always the case when you're buying online but I found that in some swatches the colours are really far off what they actually are! I literally spent a whole day choosing colours, which was a huge pain! Anyway, I choose my 6 which I will show you along with swatches in a moment, but first let me show you how they were delivered.

This package was popped into a small brown, bubble wrapped lined envelope. So it was well wrapped and none of the lipsticks were damaged in any way, so big thumbs up to the seller! And this is how they look..


First impressions, I love the packaging! The fact that the colour at the bottom matches the actual colour of the lipstick is great because I can stack them upside down so it makes it easier for me to pick out the colour I want. The following pictures will have the lipsticks in the same order of: Fig, Louisiana, Flower, Doll, Tea Rose, Spellbound

Onto Swatches!
Fig, Louisiana, Flower, Doll, Tea Rose, Spellbond
To make it a little easier I thought I'd show you a swatch of each individual lipstick for you..





Tea Rose

I don't have a preference at the moment because they all suit different occasions. Flower is the only one colour that has a distinctive shimmer to it and so I only wear that on special occasions. Fig, Doll and Tea Rose are more everyday neutral colours and Louisiana and Spellbound are more pinkier/brighter colours. They all have a nice creamy, almost moisturising feel to them which I love! They're really comfortable to wear and they almost feel like I'm not wearing anything at all which is one of the reasons why I love them so much!

I hope this has helped you, if you have any questions feel free to comment below!
Happy Wednesday
