They say the more you give the more you receive. My friend Nicole of Axons and Dendrites won several giveaways last month and decided to share some to me. She is so kind and generous. She also knows that I love any lip product.
She gave me a NYX Nail Polish, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Istanbul, and NYX Round Lipstick in Louisiana. I told her a bad story about NYX when I bought online a year ago and sad to say I still don’t have my items. I bought in an online store NYX COSMETICS PHILIPPINES – WHOLESALE and the seller CHARMIE TAPING JIMENEZ went missing in action after receiving my payment. She said that the packages encountered problems in customs and whatsoever. She gave me her new number but she didn’t reply at all. I bought the Box of Smokey Collection, NYX Matte Lip Cream in Addis Ababa, and a Matte Lipstick for my friend which costs Php1,440 she even said she’ll refund my payment but until now no items, no refund. She closed the store last January 11.
Oh well I didn’t purchased NYX online since then even though I really want to have the Lip Crème in Addis Ababa.
Maybe I will still get one at LEGIT sellers available. Any suggestions?
Anyway, Nicole said that the Louisiana don’t match her skin stone while Istanbul is like the Miners Matte Lip Crème in Light Pink she got from Kim.
I bought NYX Round Lipstick in Narcissus before from a friend and I looked like Nicki Minaj (Kirara, as told by my colleagues) so I gave it to my sister and she looked like Barbie Doll maybe because her skin is whiter and yellower than I do. haha
According to Helen (Lucky Citrine), NYX Lip Products are always HIT and MISS, I agree with her. I like the results on the new lippies I got, so I did an FOTD to show you how I look like in these new babies.
A pop of color on the lips during the day is my thing. Oh by the way I am under my night lamp again and I am having my worst skin ever (lack of sleep). It’s dry and flaky and yet with zits here and there. See how dry my skin is? My foundation cover it well enough for the camera.
The lip crème will not stand out if I will not wear a Smokey eye. I was trying to recreate my brows and covered it with a foundation stick but I failed. MAJOR FAIL. It looks sticky, yuck! I used the Ever Bilena Foundation Stick here and I like the result. I also put upper and lower false eyelashes. Still under my night lamp and mind you I was the one who took this photo.
The boyfriend do not like this photo because of my brows, so I will return to my regular brow when doing this makeup.
Istanbul lies between pink and nude really perfect for Smokey eyes.
I will write a separate review for these lip products. Nicole and I is planning to do a collaborative/comparative post on Miners Matte Lip Crème and this NYX Soft Matte Lip Crème in the future so watch out for it.
I wonder if negative comments will be punishable by law. *sigh*
