ΥΓ: Με δεξί κλίκ και προβολή εικόνας , τις βλέπετε όλες στο κανονικό τους μέγεθος!
Αποφάσισα να κάνω μια παρουσίαση απο τα κραγιόν μου (μπορεί να κάνω και άλλες, με άλλη σειρά προϊόντων, δεν ξέρω). Νταξει, όχι οτι σας νοιάζει, αλλα για πακετάκι με την παρουσίαση
Δεν ξέρω αν είναι λίγα ή πολλά, αλλα αυτά έχω προς το παρόν.
Η αλήθεια είναι οτι μέχρι πριν απο 3 χρόνια, πρέπει να είχα το πολύ 2-3 κραγιόν και αυτά ήταν MLBB / nude αποχρώσεις.
Είμαι λίγο επιφυλακτική με τα χρώματα. Οχι οτι τώρα είμαι πολύ τολμηρή όπως θα δείτε..
Here are the last things I got…. Not exactly bought all of them, since 3 were presents…
3 Nyx Jumbo eye pencils, 1 eye primer from essence, a clinique lipstick and a powder?(?) , 2 Nyx round lipsticks, 1 Nyx black label lipstick, a clarins lipstick and a Nyx cream blush…
Clinique whatever powder, at Peony. To be honest I m not sure if its a blush or a eyeshadow or both. I use it as eyeshadow,and it’s cute. Its was a gift in a Greek magazine, together with the lipstick.
Nyx’s cream blush in Golden .I just tried a bit with a brush, that’s why the surface looks so mewahhhhh….
An eye-primer from essence… So cheap and cute … (haven’t tried it,yet)
Nyx round lipsticks in Iconic and Decadent.
Iconic is very similar to Minimalism and it’s a beautiful shade (I m gonna swatch soon). Decadent is my dissapointment. I wanted to order a dark cherry red, but turned out to be….very dark :S
Nyx Black Label in Bling. A very nicely MLBB color 🙂 Love it already ! (Gonna swatch it soon as well)
Clinique’s lipstick in Rosette. This was a full sized lipstick, the other gift from the magazine. The color is very nice BUT… have some gold shimmer in it. In the photo, is not very obvious but in reality it is. And doesn’t look good to my lips…
This is Clarins Jolie Rouge. Its not a full size one ( I guess), I was given that by a friend. Its a gorgeous bright red… which I haven’t tried.. And I am afraid to…
These are the infamous Nyx Jumbo eye pencils in (L-t-R) Yogurt, French Fries and Milk.
What do you think about these? Do you have any?
Sorry, this post might be boring , but I can’t do swatches atm. The weather is bad, so the lighting is unfair to the photos. Plus, I got a new camera and I haven’t learn to use it well yet.
Lots of love
Next stop…. Apricot Round Lipgloss. 🙂
I want to swatch all of my Nyx products (and in the meantime some other products,too) , so one by one , I will start to. I was swatching only round Lipsticks, so I though a break with LipGlosses would be okay…
Here was Apricot with Tea Rose of the Mega Shine series… (Apricot is the left one)
And, bokutoupdtokyo , you can have a look at Apricot now 🙂 Hope you like it.
Apricot is an soft orangy color (to coral) , perfect for summer 🙂
And how it looks compared to Tea Rose (the right one):
I prefer Tea Rose to be honest. I am very fond of more natural colors and Tea Rose is one of them. Its not that I don’t like Apricot, I really do, but I only think is good (for me) for summer, when I”ll be (or wish to be) a little tanned. Shame on me, as a Greek I should be ”wog”, but I am not…
Round Lipglosses have less quantity in the tube (compare to Mega Shines), are cheaper, but to my opinion, less quality, too. They go off easily, and I have heard that some are way to liquid … I haven’t that problem, but they sure don’t have the same staying power, neither the tube is well designed (the hole, compared to the applicator is way big)
Anyway, all of the Nyx products, even the round lipglosses are value for money products, and sometimes, defenetely more value for the money given….
Hope you liked the Swatch…
Lots of Love
Hello there! Have you all been well? How is your Christmas vacations?
It was about time to post a new swatch so its now time for lipgloss swatches….
No, I am not over with my round lipstick swatches, it’s just that I wanted to do a Mega Shine (love!♥) swatch as well….
So here we come with Tea Rose…
Mega Shine tubes come in quite big tube , with a cute bow on the top of the cap (♥ I find it so lovely ♥)
It has a cherry-cola smell, which I personally love. Some others might hate, but I absolutely adore fruity scents, especially this one…The applicator is quite usefull for me as well.
Tea Rose is (obviously) a pink color, something like a darker bubblegum pink.
Here is with Tea Rose(right) and Apricot(left)(from round lipglosses #Nyx )swatched on my hairy arm.
I din’t put that much of quantity to my lips though, so here it is…
(bare lips first)
It gives a very nice rosey color. It IS pigmented, its just me that I didn’t apply as much as I did in my arm. Its perfect for every day/every season and I think its a color that compliments every skin tone and lips.
Mega Shine Lip Glosses:
+ Many shades to choose
+ Amazing cherry-cola smell
+ NON-sticky (which something I love)
+ decent staying power
+ Value for money
– As every Nyx product, not available to Greece, only online ordering
-Well…no other cons for Mega Shine 🙂
What do you think of Mega Shine Lipglosses from Nyx? What’s your favorite color?Do you liked it on me?
Thank you for reading
Well well well…..
I would like to thank all of my followers, who little by little are growing in numbers 🙂 Thank you very much! ♥
So.. Yesterday I went to Hondos Center (kind of Greek version of Sephora – more popular in Greece than Sephora- ) to buy a nail polish of my fave brand seventeen.
Something caught my eye, and was a cosmetics stand of the German brand ”essence”. Essence is super cheap, with okay quality. I first saw it 3 years ago to a (business) trip I had to Germany. It had some football matches so colleauges were watching football and I decided to go shopping instead. I bought some nail polishes and lipglosses back then. I remember loving the polishes 🙂
So, I got my self an eyeshadow base, a lipstick (around 2.5€) , a nail polish and a dry-fast nail drops (yes, it IS useless but anyway)….
Together with Nyx’s Heather and Frappucino, I am going to swatch essence’s no #53 ”All about cupcake”.
This time my photos are very -very crappy, my camera is old, and probably in its last days,too… Its only 6mP . I have it for like .. 5 years !!!
Here are the lipsticks in natural light
Here is Nyx’s Frappucino:
Frappucino is an orangy-pink-brown-nude whatever color… Its a best seller, but its not MY color.
Its not that is bad, with certain make-up will actually look better, but its not that its my favorite either. Its not because of the color itself, but because of MY colors.
I am very pale myself (NC20) and very ”deadly-white”, too. You know, my cheeks are never naturally blushed, my undertones are yellow,etc….
Here is Nyx’s Heather :
This color is very-very creamy. Its so much creamy that seems like shimmering while it is not.
I was kinda dissapointed on Heather to be honest . I thought it was a natural color , on the purple side (which it is ), and it looks great in the photos but …
…..Its not that flattering in reality.
It seems ”fake” in lips (do I make sense?) , and makes teeth look more yellow. Maybe its not flattering to me though, I don’t know..
And here is Essence’s All about cupcake. (last photo is my bare lips)
Its sheer.Very sheer. It gives you that pinky-natural color, but its almost like wearing a lip balm. Compared to my bare lips, it gives just a pinky glimpse of color.
It has a nice smell which I can’t really tell what it is, but a bit ”cheap-quality” packaging, though its a modern-looking packaging…
Bottom line?… Hm, I don’t know. I can’t really tell about ”All about cupcake” since It gives only a little color. No negative thoughts for sure.. But I.. don’t know..
What do you think about the lipsticks and the shades? You liked any? Do you have any of those? Who looks better one me ?
Thank you once again
So here I am , after some days.
I had to babysit my best-friend’s adorable little daughter, and I couldn’t post my swatches, though I really wanted to.
Today I am gonna swatch the best seller of round lipsticks : B52, and (my favorite) Milan.
I also gonna swatch minimalism as asked to compare it with B52.
Excuse my awful nails, I am gonna manicure them later . Also, I want to tell you that I had a really hard time when doing the photos, because the sun in Athens (and yes, its DECEMBER = Winter) is really very-very strong. We have sun almost 350 days out of the 365.
The problem is that some are taken with stronger sun, some with lighter, so there is really not big difference in the colors!
(L – t – R : Milan, B52, Minimalism)
( L – t – R : Milan (with a little more light than the others ), B52, Minimalism) .
Here are my bare lips, which I forgot to put in my previous swatches. I just wear a colorless lip balm
So this is Milan . I also put a smiley one to eliminate my lips’ wrinkles.
When applying, its really like applying my lips color, just more pigmented.
I love this color. I love this lipstick. Its so natural, its great. Its just my lips but (very) better. Somehow its not as popular as others, but I looooove it .
Here is B52
Okay. I must admit. First time I used it , I have more of a negative opinion. Maybe because I only saw the color in room light, and wasn’t that flattering. Seemed too mauve and brownish. But in daylight, look great. Its a bit more dark than Milan, but still a natural – my lips but better – color, maybe a couple of shades darker.
Here are some additional photos of Minimalism. I still love it. Out of the 3, its the one which is on the pinky side.
Here are all three , with non-daylight .
(L – t – R) Milan, B52 and Minimalism.
Not too different? Yeah, kind of . I have that bad habit of buying ”safe” colors…
Personally, I would recommend all of there 3 colors.
Which one you think looks better? Anything to add?
Lots of love
