Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.

Good Morning Ladies!!
I had ALL intentions of being a good blogger last night and taking pictures and making videos, BUT there was a Northeaster here last night & all that rain made for really bad lighting. =(

Therefore I will be reviewing some lippies I recently hauled.

NYX - Margarita (left), Louisiana (middle), & Pandora (right)
No, it's not your imagination..I HAVE posted this picture before.

Really I should know better by now than to buy these NYX lippies.
My top 2 reasons for not liking them is 1. They don't last very long. 2. The smell/taste is perfumey.
My top 2 reasons for liking them 1. They are cheap, I've never paid more than $2 for them. 2. The pigmentation is amazing! The color you see is the color you get.

Honestly the perfumey smell is enough for me to stop buying these, I hate that feeling of licking my lips and tasting that. Bleh! I find this so disappointing though, the colors are so PRETTY!!

I do have several reviews I will be posting soon, but I have yet to take pictures of the items & some I have yet to test...*cough* the falsies mascara *cough*.

Sorry for making this such a quickie *wink*, but I'm not feeling too well today.
I hope you all have a great weekend!!

Thanks for reading!

  1. i havent tried nyx lippies but oh perfumey smell
    i am particularly abt the smell of my lippies and lipgloss and even lipblam XD the less smell the better!

  2. I don't like the chemical smells/tastes either. Once you get a MAC lipstick you want all your lipsticks to have a pleasant taste.

  3. The scent is also the main reason why I don't like NYX lippies. I just can't stand how it smells.

  4. NYX round lipstick's smell is a whole lot better than their round lipgloss..but like you, I can't deny the color pay-off! =) Their lipsticks are smooth and creamy but not long lasting.
    I used to love their lips product but now, I am more in love with their eye range and blusher!=)) Their cream rouge blush is one of the best cream blush I've ever used.

  5. i hope you feel better soon! i'm sure it will start raining here soon, too.

    i have wanted to try nyx lippies since i tried their mascara, falsies, gloss, and eyeshadow! lol maybe a clear flavored balm/gloss over them will help with the flavor/scent?

  6. You are so right about NYX lipsticks. They come in a lot of colors that are pretty but darn, they come off so quick! The smell doesn't bother me just the texture and the short time they last.

  7. the NYX lipsticks definitely have an odd smell/taste to them...I don't wear my MAC lipsticks very often but I like the fact that they have a little vanilla scent to them. The price is great for sampling different colors though. Maybe you could layer a clear/slightly shimmery gloss that smells/tastes better on top?
