NYX lipsticks

NYX Shiva
NYX Electra
On Tuesday my mum made a cheeky NYX order, and I cheekily added 2 lipsticks to the basket ;) I got a hot pink and a classic red. A girl can never have too many pinks or reds, right? Hehe. Shiva, the hot pink reminds me a lot of MAC show orchard. It has really strong blue undertones, which makes it pull a bit purple. Y'all know how much I love purple. It does have some shimmer, but it's not too obvious. Electra is what I'd call a classic bright red. Very glamorous hollywood. It's not too blue or too orange, so would suit most people. It's quite a glossy finish, which isn't my favourite, but it's very pretty.

Both lipsticks have a very creamy and pigmented formula. It reminds me of the MAC Amplified finish, but without the strong staying power. They're opaque in one coat. They're comfortable to wear, and leave a glossy finish. Because they're so creamy they're quite 'slippery', so keeping an eye to make sure there's none on the teeth is important ;) As an extra plus, a lot of the NYX lipstick names are mythological, which (as an Ancient historian) I love!

NYX round lipsticks are available here for £3.50 - link! NYX has an extensive and delicious range - you have been warned ;)



  1. The colours are gorgeous! I can't wait to try some one day! :p xx

  2. I've never tried NYX lipsticks before!

  3. I've never tried any NYX makeup but been reading some good reviews on it. They look lovely!

  4. Both of these look beautiful, I especially like the red shade! I definitely need to try more NYX make up, hearting some great things recently. xo

  5. These are absolutely gorgeous! I can't believe how pigmented they are.
