In the next few posts I will showcase to you my NYX lip product collection. I have accumulated these over several purchases in random stores or off www.cherryculture.com during sales of 30% or 40% off.
For reference I am NC35-40 in MAC and for Face & Body foundation I am C4. Right now I am leaning toward the end of that spectrum because I have some color from the sun.
NYX Round Lipsticks:
When B52 is applied less opaque but not too sheer it can achieve the my lips but better look for those with pigmented lips like mine. If applied opaquely you can see it has a very purple-ish tone to it which I think would make it great for Fall! Despite the tone it is very wearable.
Tea Rose is a very pretty, soft pink that can be used in any look any time of the year. It can tone down a smokey eye or complement a natural day to day look.
When I first got Indian Pink I was disappointed because I didn’t realize that it had gold shimmer in it. I am not a fan of lip products with shimmer and/or especially glitter! (It tends to get all over my face lol) This is the only lipstick in this post that has shimmer. But I love the coral color it gives and for the Summer it is a perfect color to complement a tan and I’ve begun to like the gold shimmer because it is not to noticeable.
Femme is definitely a neon coral! I think it’s perfect for Summer and sheered out very wearable.
Chic Red is a blue undertone red-pink color. I’ve worn this on New Year’s Eve and to a bridal shower and got many compliments! I think this color would look great on any skin tone and is the perfect modern red! Also, because it is more blue toned it doesn’t make teeth look yellow at all. If you are planning on getting a red lipstick but are clueless as to which and don’t want to shell out on higher end brands I think this is a GREAT pick! Applied with lip liner underneath and blotted it can last all day (without disturbance like eating/drinking). Even if it does fade its easy to reapply and not drying on the lips which is very comfortable to wear.
Snow White is a classic deep red which is neutral in tone. It will definitely suit any skin tone. I think this would look great on during the Fall when people tend to go for the deeper lip colors. If blotted/powdered it can look like a retro red look.
Black Cherry is a deep red-burgundy color. It is beautiful and would be great for Fall.

I put on more powder than I would normally wear because in the photos the flashback would make me look sweaty. lol
I think these lipsticks shown would suit any skin tone and I took a long time to pick the colors based on many people’s swatches and opinions. All the lipsticks generally last a few hours but because of their creamy, smooth nature they can fade easily. They come off very easily when eating or drinking, as well. To help these lipsticks last I usually wear a lip liner underneath. For long lasting coverage I use the Lisa Eldridge method where you use a lip liner to fill in the whole lip, lipstick, blot, lipstick, blot, and lipstick again. This really does work! And it works for any lipstick!
Hope you liked the post I included many pictures showing my whole face and up close with teeth showing because I hate it when I can only see one or the other! I like to see a well rounded look of the swatch haha. Make sure you come back to see the next posts for the Jumbo Lip pencils and the lip liners.
