My lipstick collection and swatches!

Hello Beauties!

Here is my lipstick collection!

Up until 2 years ago, I didn’t own more than 2-3 lipsticks, but now , thanks to internet/e-bay mostly, I own all these goodies.

Let’s start with Nyx:

Bottom : Perfect, Decadent, Tea Rose, Milan, Frappucino

And the rest of my lippies :

I tried to do a collective swatch with numbers. Kinda failed because NYX and the rest both have a 13 number but anyway…

Nyx Black label swatch : Bling

Hello Beauties….

How have you been? I had a bad time in  holidays since I got sick.. again.. Ever Xmas I m getting sick :S

I am still not totally okay, but , in better condition…

I know, I know its unacceptable for me that I haven’t update my posts for too long.

The think is that I had an 6 y.o camera of 6Mpx, that I was using. During holidays I got a new one of 12Mpx, but I can’t really use it the same.

The photos tent to get lighter, so I tried 3 times to swatch Bling, and couldn’t see the color (I saw in reality), in the photos…

I did something different today, its not that its the best thing I can do, but anyway…

So….

…….

This is Nyx Black Label lipstick in Bling. Very popular color, I could say…

   

(okay okay, I might have put the 3rd photo just to show my nails (Opi Dutch tulip and INM hologram silver)

I tried different angles and lighting to show you the color…

   

 

And here it is swatched in my arm, together with Iconic (which I will swatch very soon) and Minimalism…

(L-t-R : Bling, Iconic, Minimalism)

About Black Label series….

Well, Black label is indeed different from the round lipsticks series.. Not only in price, but in quality, smell, packaging…

Its NOT more pigmented but its more moisturizing, has a bit longer staying power, and smells better. The packaging looks more ”high quality”, but I prefer round lipstick’s more… Smaller, and fits better in smaller handbags/clutches.

The Black Label Bling…

Bling is a neutral color, for every day. I can’t really describe it , its surely pink, but its very.. grey. I mean, its kind of a boring pink with grey undetones?

Being pale myself, NC20, BUT with dark brown hair/brows and green eyes, and naturally NON-blushing cheeks, I wanted something to look more… alive in me.

I usually have the corpse look, so this doesn’t really help

It is a beautiful color, actually. I just need to year it with more strong eye makeup, I guess…

What do you think? Have you used it ? Have you used Black label lipsticks from Nyx?

Stay tuned and enjoy!

Lots of Love

V

PS: In my following posts I will show you  my Elf haul (when it will arrive) is as well as ”What’s in my bag” post (probably tommorow)…

Also, Iconic’s swatch (Nyx round lipstick), which is AMAZING! I already love it ! I adore it !
