The new NYX Pin Up Pout Lipsticks are just my speed – not long wear or drying, but not overly greasy/moisturizing or glossy. Just super creamy and pigmented. Are they going to last all day? No. But your lips won’t peel off and you won’t need a piece of sandpaper and a tub of oil to remove them at night either. Sometimes I enjoy long-wear lippies, but it’s all about balance people! There are 24 shades of highly pigmented lipstick goodness. And as of RIGHT NOW (while I’m writing this), they are 40% off! I have no idea how long the promo will last – so go check em out.
I swatched them all on my arm so you can see the shades, but here’s one on my lips so you can see the texture. It’s a shade called Darling which is a lovely light blue-based pink. Definitely going on my heavy rotation list!
Top Row: Smoke Me (pastel lilac grey – SO pretty in the swatch but makes me look dead), Silk (pale nude), Sophisticated (warm nude medium), Corset (cool nude)
Second Row: Darling (soft pink with blue undertone – one of my faves!), Almost Famous (Dusty Mauve – my favorite!), Boundless (deep tea rose with yellow), Opinionated (true coral)
Third Row: Wisteria (neon lavender), Violet Femme (violet), True Vixen (blackened purple), Wild Spirit (dusty navy)
Fourth Row: Individualistic (medium brown with blue), Resistance (dirty deep mauve), Cocktail Hour (wine plum with soft pink), Flashy (deep vibrant purple with blue)
Fifth Row: Savage (true deep brown), Rebel Soul (dusty brownish plum), Revolution (deep reddish plum with blue), Lucy (true bright red)
Sixth Row: Red Haute (brick red), Bombshell (deep hot pink), Dance Party (bubble gum pink), Fiery (medium deep orange – I love this shade!)
