NYX lipstick & lipgloss swatches
This is the longest I have ever gone without posting in my blog! I have been so busy lately, and I have really missed blogging and reading everyone else's blogs! I thought I'd do swatches of the NYX stuff I ordered from Cherry Culture when they were having their Black Friday sale, along with the few that I already had. It is a real PITA to try and decide what colors to order, since the Cherry Culture swatches are so incorrect and useless. While I was searching for swatches I found this blog. It's really great, and there are lots of swatches of different NYX products. Go follow! I have 3 of the Round Lipsticks in the colors Georgia (618), Watermelon (616), and Tea Rose (628). I think I used to have a couple others that I either threw away or gave to friends because the colors didn't work for me. Kitty likes lipstick :3 From left to right: Georgia, Watermelon, Tea Rose Georgia and Watermelon are frosty, and I feel like they're harder for me to pull off. I fell in love with Tea Rose though, it is almost an exact match to my natural lip color. I got one Diamond Sparkle lipgloss in Rose Sparkle (01). It is kind of metallic and I don't think I could ever wear it out without using a lip scrub first. All of the NYX Girls Round Lip Glosses I have are very pretty, but they have this artificial lemon smell that I don't like. It reminds me of pledge. From left to right is Strawberry (11), Sparkle (05), Kiss (20), and Ballerina Pink (36). I hope these swatches were helpful, and I'm looking forward to blogging regularly again :) How were your holidays? What did you give/get for Christmas? I got a dolphin Pillow Pet, some Bruce Willis movies (love him), 2 Wiimotes for our old broken Wii I'm taking with me to Texas (the disk reader doesn't work, but my brother just downloads games and puts them on a hard drive ;P) Hello Kitty oven mitts, and these Nikes that I asked for. I even got a cute scarf from my manager, so it was a really nice Christmas! Did anyone get any cool makeup? Are you hauling from the new MAC collections? I haven't been here in a while, I must catch up on everything!!
