NYX Macaron Review + Lip Swatch

NYX Macaron

I have been trying to find a black lipstick for quite a while, but no luck. I've searched at MAC Cosmetics and several other drugstores and they didn't have any. The sales clerk at the MAC counter was so helpful he even showed me how I can customize or make my own. Luckily enough I haven't put my mixing palette to work as yet and since NYX has released their bright hued lipstick macaron collection it has been the talk of the town and the shade that I wanted was always out of stock.

I decided to try a few shade while curbing my spending habit and not overdoing it on lippies since I'm a lipstick junkie. So I decided to choose two colours from the entire collection of 12 NYX Macaron lipsticks. A black shade was in my intention to get along with any other suitable colour that I might see myself wearing and beyond reasoning and colour matching I eventually opted for Blue Velvet and Chambord.

NYX Macaron Lipstick Chambord and Blue Velvet

NYX products can be found at drugstores, Ulta, online at Ebay, Amazon or on NYX official website. These NYX Macaron Lipsticks are sold for $6, only a third of their dupe Lime Crime Opaque lipsticks. 

NYX Macaron Lipsticks glides on smoothly to lips, very opaque, creamy and has a satin finish (no shimmer, sparkle or glitter). These colours builds up nicely and doesn't feel heavy on lips. They are neither sticky nor drying but you will need to reapply once you've finish eating or drinking, if you want to avoid having patches of missing lip colour.

NYX Macaron Blue Velvet Lipstick
NYX Macaron Chambord Lipstick
NYX Macaron Blue Velvet is a medium azure blue.
NYX Macaron Chambord is jet black in shade.

What is your favorite NYX product?

Be a Bombshell Cosmetics: Eye Base in colour Submissive (0.09 oz)
This eye base has a brownish colour in the container with very fine micro shimmer and pink undertones once applied to eyelids. This eye shadow base should be used prior eyeshadow application to keep the eyeshadow in place and to build colour, it can also be worn alone. The eye base is highly pigmented and very creamy, but it applies sheer with a lot of shimmer. Apply lightly with fingertips or eyeshadow brush to eye area.

Lip Monthly October 2014 Review

Lip Monthly October 2014

1. Starlooks Lip Scrub
This is an all natural lip scrub that can be used to exfoliate and soften dry cracked lips. Prepping lips before applying lipstick allows the lipstick to apply more smoother unto lips. The container is very small and it does not have much information on the packaging for eg. directions on how to use and the ingredients it was made from. It smells alot like sugar and I know for sure that sugar is a main ingredient used to exfoliate lips.

Starlooks Lip Scrub
How to use?
a. Wet lips with water                                
b. Apply a generous amount of Starlooks Lip       Sugar to wet lips
c. Massage the lip sugar over lips gently
d. Use a damp cotton to remove the product       from lip

Doing this will leave your lips feeling smooth, follow up with a lip balm or lip gloss.

Noyah Vanilla Lip Balm
2. Noyah Balm (Price: $3.99)
This is an all natural lip balm that will help to moisturize, smooth and soften lips. If you are looking for that flawless lipstick application:

c. remove it prior lipstick application

This lip balm is available in 4 different flavours, namely: vanilla, cherry, classic and spearmint.

3. JCat Nude Lipstick - Honeycrisp FL107 (Price: $2.99)
This lipstick is ultra creamy and it glides on smoothly to lips. it has a very pleasant sweet smell and it contains vitamin E which will help to protect the lips and keep it moisturized. This lipstick is cruelty free, hypoallergenic and lead free.
