My package arrived today :D woohoo~
I don't usually shop at cherry culture unless they have a sale or free shipping, and they recently had a back to school free shipping event and most of the NYX stuff I wanted was on sale so I went ahead and got some stuff I wanted to try out
I was really baffled at how the package came with a huge hole in the back -_-;;
The lipsticks were literally about to fall out, but oh well.. at least I wasn't missing anything :)
The hand swatches were all taken in 3 swipes in natural lighting.
and I just thought the mega shine new version was awesome so put it side by side with the old version. Also, there is an eye pencil in purple that really doesn't show up much in the pictures, but it was in there too :p
Here's what I got..
--- [ Round lipsticks ~ $1.75 e/a ] ---
Electra: bright red, not completely matte but more on the matte side.
Narcissus: Candy pink, more on the matte side (this is my favorite one!)
Watermelon: similar to my "indian pink" nyx lipstick. Has peachy undertones to it. more on the sheen side
Summerlove: Nude lipstick. Creamy formula, but not sheen nor matte
Georgia: Pinky sheen lipstick.
--- [ NYX Girls round lipgloss ~ $2.00 e/a ] ---
Apricot: Runny red with apricot base
Sorbet: A bit thicker pink, but still on the runny side
--- [ NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss ~ $3.75 ] ---
Sweet heart: much thicker than the round lip glosses, smokey nude color
--- [ NYX Eye Pencil ~ $2.00 ] ---
Purple: Deep violet / hazy purple with no sparkles
So the total of this haul was $18.50 with no s/h fees :D yay! you can't even get one MAC pigment with this money and yet so many stuff from NYX :)
I'm really excited about trying out Narcissus and will let you guys know what I think about in later reviews on these products.
Let's hope that these NYXes don't fail on me :'(
* Some good news? (my own opinion) *
I generally shed away from made in china products and I was always hesitant about nyx or coastal scent products since their products are mostly made in china. And since "made in china" has such a bad reputation nowadays, a lot of companies create their labels as "made in proc or P.R.O.C" which means People's Republic of China, or "made in china" written in a different way.
But anyway, back to the point. I was looking at all of the labels, and to my surprise, NYX seems to be shifting from PRC to made in S.Korea and Taiwan! yay! (no offense to Chinese people, this has nothing to do with China or the people of that country, it's just made in china products that I am in dislike with). Anyway, kudos for NYX on that part :)
* I was sick for a couple of days. :'( Luckily enough I only had a mild cold, but have been hearinga lot about H1N1. H1N1 flu seems to be really dangerous so always be careful on what you touch and where you sit and eat when you are outside. And always wash your hands when you come in from outside :D
Also, did you guys hear about the Yale girl getting murdered and stashed in between the walls of the laboratory at her school? Always be aware of your surroundings and be alert! The world is a scary place :'(
