Haul: NYX Round Lippies from Digital Traincase + Swatches

4/13/2010Shen



There is just nothing too much when it comes to lipsticks!!

So, when a beauty enthusiast and blogger turned cosmetic seller, Lelila, brought NYX to the Philippines with an affordable price tag, the addict in me couldn't resist. I ordered a few lippies from her that I wasn't able to from my Cherry Culture ultra mega haul.

And boy did I miss a lot of really pretty colors!


Paris, Fig, Spellbound, Lousiana, Eros

The thing about NYX lippies is that it's sooo darn affordable, you can't help but haul. Unfortunately, staying power is not all that good and many considers the consistency too thin for their taste. But like everything else in life, we make do with what is handed to us (given our budget) and maximize it to the fullest. The beauty of being a beauty enthusiast is actually finding a diamond among the things that we thought won't work. But only those who are patient can accomplish such feat.

Personally, I don't find anything wrong with NYX Round Lippies. I love them to bits. With some lip liner and a lip brush, NYX Lippies can rival the big brands out there with fraction of its cost. Wouldn't you just love that? Once I've primed my lips with a lip liner and brush on the NYX Round Lipstick on my puckers, staying power is pretty decent.

This haul is definitely a haul I don't regret doing. I love love love each and every single color. It's like I got a color for each day of the work week. :D Snow white definitely goes on casual Friday look. :)



here are some quick lip swatches:






colors may appear lighter due to flash


Excuse the uneven application. :)

Author's note:
Paris - Reminds me of Denise Laurel's lippie on the Sunsilk commercial with Sarah Geronimo and Anne Curtis' lippie on her new ad for Folded and Hung
Fig - This goes well for really really smokey look. I love the muteness of the pink and yet its still striking.
Spellbound - I could use this everyday of the week. But I'm scared the other lippies might get jealous. It's just a fab pink lippies that is safe for work and play.
Louisina - Reminds me of Schiap and a MAC Hello Kitty lippie. It's a bright pink lipstick that takes a certain amount of confidence to wear. But definitely, anyone can pull this off. If I can. you can!
Eros - This interpretation of the god of love in a tube of lipstick is exactly apt. I love the bright red.. like love emanating in splendor. This is such a good lippie for going outside the box, something we all should do sometimes.

There you have it. :)

Til next haul/review post...

much love,
Shen
