This will be a mini-review as I've already gone over the formula and packaging in a previous entry, click here to read! I'll be focusing on the shades for this one.
On two separate occasions I got these as a gift from Lady E of The Hyphen Store, one when I visited her stall in the Supersale Bazaar and another when I purchased two of the nail polishes from this post. She's still selling other shades at only Php140! That is a crazy awesome price.
NYX lipsticks are very creamy, which make them incredibly easy to apply. However, this also means they can break easily, which is what happened to my NYX Georgia soon after taking this picture. I've reattached it but it keeps catching on the lip of the tube; I might just depot it. This creamy nature also tends to catch on dry lips, as seen below.
Fig is a medium pink. It's the kind of shade that begs to be noticed, in a girly, playful way. It's the brighter sister of Tea Rose, and can similarly flatter a good range of skintones. Based on swatches and reviews online, NYX Louisiana is a deeper, cooler hot pink color, but both are quite bright. I think I wouldn't mind purchasing Louisiana, but with Fig and Tea Rose you can choose one or the other. One swipe gives almost opaque color coverage, but the shade is buildable if you wish!
Georgia on the other hand is a peach-pink, but the color is almost lost in a load of shimmer. Despite the high frost finish which I don't usually wear, I still find it quite flattering since it hides imperfections on the lips. I also like that application was still quite smooth; I've used glittery lipsticks before that felt quite gritty on the lips and were hard to remove.
Aaaand that's it. I'm happy to have these two in my collection! But I should probably try finishing up at least one tube of lipstick before I buy any more, haha.
What do you think of these two NYX shades? :)
