Get Kissable Lips with NYX Lippies !!

Im sure you've already heard everyone rave about these little lippies.. here is one more to add onto that list! :) I am just loving these! they are cheap, pigmented, and the colours are gorgeouss! I picked up 5 of the NYX Round Lipsticks during my cherry culture haul, but im seriously considering some more!

Left to Right
Thalia, Tea Rose, Fig, Watermelon, Ceto

Prior to purchasing, thalia and tea rose always looked similar to me. So heres a picture showing them up close. Now i can definately see the difference, can you?

Muave with slight brown undertones
I have to admit, in swatches, this colour intimidated me abit. it seemed almost TOO dark and TOO purple to wear. but that was not the case. Thalia is gorgeous when applied on lips and is actually quite wearable. I can now see why this is a favourite among NYX lippie wearers.

Tea Rose
Gorgeous warm pink.

Tea rose is similar to Thalia but instead of having mauve/brown undertones, this is more of a warm toned pink. This is a really pretty pink for everyday wear, very natural looking.

Gorgeous wearable vibrant pink.

Oh my, fig is amazing pretty. I've always loved bright pinks but could never wear it. Fig changed all that. Although you cant really tell in the picture, this is probably a shade or two brighter+lighter than tea rose. Its more vibrant looking in real life and i am lovingg it :)

Frosty, shimmery, slightly sheer red/copper.

Watermelon definately is a frost lipstick. Although when swatched, it seemed pretty sheer and lighter in colour, when applied on my lips, it was darker than expected. I find that the formula of the frost lipsticks are not as pigmented as the others though, but saying that, the sheerness does make this quite a wearable red.
Frosty, shimmery, slightly sheer copper/bronze.

Ceto is another frost lipstick, but unlike watermelon, this is more of a copper/bronze so it has more brown undertones. I never really though i could pull off brownish lipsticks, but its actually just more of a deeper nude shade. WIth the shimmer and frost, it actually looks not bad! if you`re a fan of nude shades, this one`s for you!
If i had to rank these in order of which i liked best:
 Tea Rose, Thalia, Fig, Ceto, Watermelon

overall: im in love  with these lippies! they are all very creamy and texture is really nice. Only thing i have to say is that there is a slight fragrance to them, its not a horrible smell, i just cant put my hand on what it smells like... but just a warning in case you dont like fragranced lipsticks. i really wish they were easier to get a hold of! i MUCH rather have NYX in my drugstores then a lot of other brands... now if only someone heard that and did something about it!

UPDATE: I found out that certain Rexall carries several NYX products! YAY! Unfortuantely, the prices are also DOUBLED and the choices are quite limited. Still, i am happy because if I ever have the urge for a new NYX lippie.. Rexall, here i come! :D
