My 1st NYX Purchase+Swatches

Hey you's guys. So I recently purchased Nyx stuff for the very first time. *tear* The Ulta down here is kind of far from me & I've never even been there. I've been wanting to order online from the NYX site since Tiffany sent me the Pinky Natural lipgloss that I totally fell in love with. (Still my favorite lip gloss ever btw) but I honestly just wasn't too motivated to buy $4 lipsticks plus shipping for something I had never tried or seen IRL. What a cheapskate!! Yes.. Yes, I am. Haa. Well anywayy! I stumbled across the site & saw that they had the round lipsticks for $1.99 & S&H was $2 something. I now know what it feels like to strike gold. Lol Super exciting. I was really pleased with the shipping & the easy checkout & of course the great prices. I'll definitely be going back to get some Jumbo Pencils & some lip glosses yay!

So here are the ones I picked.. in all their fabulous glory. Haa. I literally spent like two hours trying to decide which to get. I was googling swatches like crazy. Thank God for blogger & all of you ladies who have swatches posted. Haha. You helped me A LOT! Narcissus, Strawberry Pink, & Circe really caught me off guard. I thought they were going to be my favorite & I was going to love the for evarzz. But meh.. Circe doesn't really flatter me, at all. I'm not sure what it is, It looks really nice in the tube & swatched, but on my lips it's not so impressive. It looks kind of dark & makes my whole face look weird to me. I'll try to do a look with it, anyway. The light pinks weren't too flattering on me either lol but I still like them just because they're pink. I had the lowest expectations for Tea Rose & Fig. They're pretty similar to each other, except Tea Rose is a tad bit more neutral while Fig is a bit more Pinkish, but just a little bit. I ended up loving these the most from the rest of the round lipsticks. They're super flattering & give the lips such a pretty color. They're really close to my lipcolor & I find they look good with almost any eye look. Spellbound looks red on me & I thought it would be more Pink. It's the only one I really regret getting. It's a gorgeous color, just not on me lol. I expected to love Hot Pink & Shocking Pink & I really do! Especially Shocking Pink. It's freakin lovely. Fuschia & Matte? Omm.. yes please!

I think the only bone I have to pick with the lipsticks is that the round ones I feel like I have to be careful with them. I'm pretty tosca with my stuff so it needs to be built tough like Ford. & The round lipsticks, I always feel like I'm going to break them. The matte one [Shocking Pink] which cost a little more, is perfect though. It feels like most of my other lipsticks. Sturdy-ish? lol I should report that I've already broken Spellbound v.v It's the one I liked the least & the one I would've picked to take the plunge before the rest but I still got sad. Don't get me wrong though, they're not completely flimsy like the $1 Elf lipsticks. Haa. Oh yeah, & some of them taste like dish-washing soap to me. Like Tea Rose & one of the light Pink ones, I forgot which. Don't ask me how I know what dish-washing soap tastes like -___- lol but I got the slight hint of it in some of them. Other than that, I really love them & am super happy I finally got them!  Btw Check out Mie's blog No Beauty Limits! She was sweet enough to feature me & two other ladies in her Spotlight. She's a lovely girl with a fab sense of style. Thnx a bunch again, beautiful. <3  

Thanks so much for reading

I really wanted to like Strawberry Milk but it was too creamy to the point where it wouldn't stay put. Wish it was more matte >: b/c I love the color
