NYX Haul

My lipstick collection is fast growing. So I thought of sharing it to you guys the brand/s I use, highly recommend and L.O.V.E. ;) Anyways, I'll start of with my most favorite brand~~ NYX.

Here are swatches of NYX Matte Lipstick (PHP250) and NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream (PHP240) I bought online at The Make up Store  by Izza Marie Yee (you might want to check her Facebook site). I purchased Summer Breeze and Pure Red (both are Matte Lipstick), Istanbul and Addis Ababa (Soft Matte Lip Cream). These lipsticks are extremely gorgeous! They have a matte finish, they're not much drying (at least to me), and they are cheap compared to other lipstick brands I own. I have purchased some lippies from other brands which is a matte finish as well and it's sooo dry, and they last on average 2-3 hours on my lips. In comparison, these are very moisturizing and very pigmented! And they have a sweet scent too. I love them. :)

I think the only con is that there is no store yet for NYX products here in the Philippines. So you have to search for a seller and buy online to avail them. You need to pre-order them and wait for 2-3 weeks before you get your item. I also took the liberty of comparing these lipsticks to other lipsticks in my collection. You'll find more about my other lippie collections soon. So stay tune to my next blog. Will post more about them.

Overall, I am very satisfied with this lipstick as far as the shades and formula goes. This is one of my favorite lip brands (as of the moment). I've been using this for 2 months now (I guess?) going 3 months. 

If you guys are looking for a matte lipstick, but on a budget, can't afford MAC or NARS, you can definitely try this one out. ;)
