Any beauty blogger, reader, watcher or enthusiast who has seen American beauty videos will know of the brand NYX. NYX is a drugstore brand with great quality products at amazing prices, and sadly predominately available in America. I grew greatly jealous over time of the products people had, so finally, I set out to buy some. I found a seller on eBay who offered a bulk deal of 6 at an extremely reasonable price and set off. When they finally came in the mail, I was ecstatic!
Let me tell you, from what I have seen, these lipstick do not disappoint. The light fruity smell, smooth consistency and amazing variety of colours can do nothing but invite people in to want the whole collection!
I ordered 6 colours, in a variety of shades. I bough a a few brights, a nude, and a darker shade, and overall, I am quite happy with them.
Spellbound is a gorgeous blue toned muted fushia pink. It's not dramatically bright, but its wearable enough to brighten either a day or evening look. It's different to any other pink I own, but I can imagine this getting more use than many of the others.
Pumpkin Pie is a gorgeous light peach toned neutral colour. I picked this believing it would be a nude colour, but being a colour only a few shades different to my natural lip colour, it is a beautiful colour for the spring and summer.
Femme is a bright, red toned coral shade. At first thought it slightly resembled and orange-toned red I owned and thought it clashed with my skin tone, but after some coaxing I believe it will certainly get some use.
Tea Rose is another blue toned pink, but rather more of a soft pink. With the brighter, deep blue undertones, it is a colour that is not soft enough for a nude, but still a good colour to spice a day look. This is definitely one of my favorites.
Herades is a red brown shade - a deep colour that is more red than brown. This was the colour I was most surprised by, as it was much darker than I expected, and not something that I would usually wear, due to the brown tones. I'll to incorporate it, but I imagine this colour getting less wear than the others. To top off my annoyance, due to the ridiculous heat in Melbourne, I think it melted a bit and broke off at the base. This colour does not seem to want to work for me, but I won't give in.
Fig is another blue toned pink. You might be thinking, 'What?! Another pink?' but I should reassure you that they are three different pinks. This is a gorgeous light pink that could pass as a nude, but still provides that splash of colour to your face. This is certainly one of my favorites!

I love these lipsticks! The scent, consistency and colours are just amazing, and overall I'm really happy with the colours I chose. I do have certain favorites though, and those have to be Pumpkin Pie and Fig.
