NYX Lip Haul

Recently at Ulta, I noticed NYX products were buy one get one 50% off, so I picked up 4 different lip shades. 3 round lipsticks, and 1 NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream.

NYX Round Lipsticks are a velvet textured lipstick formulated with mineral oils to provider moisturizing benefits and rich colors. Let me just say, I love the amount of moisture in these lipsticks. They also sell for the fabulous price of $3.99 They aren' drying and last for at least 3-4 hours. That's the up side.

The down side for me is the amount of shine and pigment. Yes I LOVE pigment, but these lipsticks are a little too shimmery for my liking. The colors are a bit hard to apply, and I'm not too fond of the colors I chose after seeing them on my lips.

Baby Pink, Harmonica, Jupiter

Although I'm not too fond of the round lipsticks i'm LOVING the soft matte lip cream (seen above) Each color is listed by a foreign city, and I'm wearing Tokyo. The color is a fabulous matte, and I was surprised to see this is under the "gloss" category, and it has a doe foot applicator.

I'm a little dissapointed these don't come in more colors that I like. I'll be heading over the Ulta again very soon to purchase more of the NYX Soft matte lip cream. It's got the formula and long last wear of a lipstick, but the shine and feel of a gloss. LOVE! It's a little more expensive then the 3.99 lipsticks,I think I bought this for $5.99, but it's well worth the extra couple bucks!

Have you tried any of the NYX lip products? I won't be buying anymore of the lipsticks, I will stick to the lip gloss and sheer matte cream.
