You might want to grab a drink and put on some music because this post might as well be a date- it's long enough! I was able to swatch all of my Nyx round lipsticks. I won't go into the recent 12 year anniversary
FAIL sale on this post- which is where I grabbed most of these. Instead I'll get to the good stuff- the swatches!
Here's all 26 lined up and ready to go! If you count closely you'll see there are 27 and I accidentally snuck 2 tubes of Hades in there somehow. Too much Red Bull I guess...I grouped them from light to dark starting with neutrals to coppery shades and then bottom row, baby pinks to bright magenta and orange. I also wanted these swatches to be really comprehensive on the color payoff for each color. I googled lots of Nyx swatches before I purchased these and I couldn't find a single post with more than 10 lipsticks that had tube photos AND lip swatches. Hope this fills that gap. Now let the madness begin!
I won't go through and blabber on about each color. If you have regular eyesight you'll decide in 2 seconds if you like it or not and me calling it baby pink chartreuse with a gold glimmer isn't going to change your mind. However, it will take me 2 hours to finish this post, so let's move along. First up, Opal!
Alright I lied. I'll talk about Opal because it's so weird. It's not like mood/Halloween lipstick. It's a white tube with a violet interference that goes on semi sheer (a bit milky clear) with a lovely pinky purple fire. Okay now I won't interrupt anymore *zips lips*
Sorry, had to say something- I LOVE Gaea and Apollo- rich, buttery metallic coppery goodness! LOVE them!
Fig came from Nyx with those weird color blotches in the tube. I'm sure it's some sort of filling/mixing error but I don't care. Just thought I'd share so you don't think I have these mung covered lipsticks lying around. Nice and fresh round here, it tis!
Whew! Are you still with me? Which ones do you like? I found a lot of the neutrals to be rather sheer and thankfully these aren't super scented (I didn't detect anything) and are a very smooth, slick formula with lots of shine. If Nyx had better customer service I'd really rave. Do you have any of these shades- I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for reading!
