NYX Loose Pigments are lovely! And only $4!
All the lip products in my purse right now. Idk why since most lip things give me allergic reactions. #makeup #lipstick #nyx #elf #revlon #eos #lipgloss (Taken with instagram)
these are my ‘favorite’ drugstore brands because they’re ‘cruelty free’
but i hate my local ulta
and i dont like shopping for makeup online
The other day I want to Ulta because NYX was having a BOGO and that’s kinda the best. Well it turns out that the soft matte lip creams were excluded from the sale and I didn’t know and had a very unpleasant shopping experience overall so I just left with one (in Stockholm) (and wet n wild color icon single in brulee). I was so upset over the whole thing and wanted to return it immediately just out of spite. I got home and tried it on and I wasn’t feeling it. In retrospective I do realize I was having a bad lip week during this all. Now that my lips have healed (i’ll talk about that later) I gave it another try. I’m not really a nude lip kinda person, or matte, but it was time I tried.
So I put on the lip cream and give it a second. And it was this slow motion glowing light moment where I started to love it. And then I looked at my glosses and saw this super summery/gold/brown gloss I have from Mary Kay and it looked amazing with a light layer of that. And then I looked some more and found a sheer baby pink lancome juicy tube from years ago that I’ve never used and thought, hm, maybe it’s time. So I put that on and bam! It was magic . And now I can’t return it. This is definitely a my lips but better nude wizardy going on. And I don’t even have makeup on, I cant wait to see what it looks like with even skin and a bright eye from mi vida loca palette.
so yea, keeping this lip cream from NYX.
btw the formula on these are amazing. not too drying for a matte and i actually like the smell.
i do realize that putting gloss over a matte product kinda defeats the purpose, but meh. i have to ease my way into the idea.
but probably after today’s haul
i plan on picking up some more elf stuff, and probably finally try nyx
