Lips are huge this season (no pun intended) and for us MAC lipstick lovers with smaller budgets, NYX have provided us with the perfect alternative with an ever expanding variety of colours to choose from!
Having raided my local boots this month, I managed to beat the crowds and grab the most popular aw16 colours!
Addicted to Pinterest, I like to check out reviews and swatches of the colours I’m thinking of, before I head out the stores and try the testers out. The shades I’ve chosen this season are mainly from the liquid suede range, and one Soft Matte lip cream.
From left to right:
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream -Copenhagen
NYX Liquid Suede – Vintage
NYX Liquid Suede – Cherry Skies
NYX Liquid Suede – Soft Spoken
My skin tone – yellow-y brown asian skin tone; one layer of lip cream.
As you can see Cherry Skies and Copenhagen look fair similar on this skin tone, however on a second application, Cherry skies has a stronger red tone, and Copenhagen blends towards purple. Vintage has an element of a brown pigment for a darker nude-like tone. For my skin tone Soft Spoken is definitely the perfect nude; it comes out as a softer pink. creating a noticeable matte look.
