15 Days Of celebration with NYX

Makeup id definitely an extension of our personalities-the length of our wings vary and so does our pouty ways of matte creams. With all the rage of Matte Lip Cream I today foray into my first beauty review post.NYX was kind enough to spread some holiday cheer with me and sent goodies that I haven't stopped using every single day(and you obviously know t from my Instatory and Snapchat)

NYX forayed into India with a bang, I remember buying eyeshadow and blushes online through medplusbeauty when the advent of online shopping had just begun. I loved the brand for it's affordability now with the relaunch the prices have certainly spiked up but I cannot even justify the price of lipcream and liners to the quality.

So NYX Cosmetics is one  of the most sought after drugstore makeup brand which has been a pivotal for anyone obsessed with beauty! (that too on a budget, doesn't really imply when one buys this in India though) I have seen at least once beauty blogger or professional makeup artists rave about the brand's innovative products .
Did you know how they pronounce NYX- It's 'niks,' in reference to the Greek goddess of the night. After snooping on the history, I found out how NYX Cosmetics had started as a really small establishment in 1999 by Toni Ko and The brand was initially exclusive on trade shows only.

First up, this product is NOT a liquid lipstick, it's a liquid cream lipstick, a stark difference as this lip product transfers on everything, and I mean everything . Also It applies like a liquid lipstick though and "dries" matte. I quote dry because it never really dries down. It feels slightly sticky the entire wear time, which might annoy me if I were planning to wear this on it's own. It also has a tendency to define the lines in your lips.
But the reason I absolutely wanted this product is one of it's pros. The product is opaque as hell. With just a couple careful swipes (although you have to be extremely careful with the application) one can get a fully opaque color with none of your lip color showing through so the coverage is way better than a normal cream lipstick.

But because of the opaqueness, you can end up applying too much on, that can glob up as you talk, so go light on the application. It would still be as opaque. The lipstick does stay on for a long long time because of it's formula but like I mentioned it transfers every wear hence the re-application can be tedious if you are a lazy bum like me.

This is how it looks on  me. Under the lights, Stone Fox looks black, but is actually a blue toned gray, or Slate color, hence the name Stone Fox. I personally think the shade is perfect for fall and Halloween.

The formulas are exact same for these shades, so I will show you the swatches and how it looks on me.The shades are called (Left to Right-I've swiped them once and then double coats to show you guys to paquenessess)

Berry Strudel is a pretty bright  violet purple with a hint of pink and fairly cool undertones. The finish is absolutely creamy and glossy true to it's name. The colour took 2-3 swipes to get an even tone and is definitely prone to streaking. The colour is definitely a new addition and is one of them that i wouldn't have dared to put it on except it does not look that bad at all.
I cannot comment on thwear time as I swatching these shades one after the another and would do a quick update once I've worn them all.
