Too slick for me but great color pay off over even dark lips
While the pigmentation on these is really good I don't like them because they are so slick. I prefer lipsticks that stay put and kind of dry. These are so moist/wet and never dry and they kind of slip right of my lips in a sense and easily smudge.
The color selection is great and all the ones I have tried have amazing color pay off over my dark lip color, including all of the nude colors like Rea and Honey and the light pink colors like Narcissus.
These are very moisturizing, vibrant colours, only problem I find is that they bleed very easily. brighter colours leave a little stain, which is fine, just wish you could wear these bright colours without a lip linner. I already have full lips so I don't need them looking any bigger :) lol
pucker up !
I've never been a person to wear anything but chapstick on my lips. always thought I can't find that "perfect color."
pure nude by NYX is my favorite because of how it makes me feel. my teeth seem to come off whiter. No matter If I cake on the bronzer or decide to look like Casper the shade goes perfect with my skin tone .
I feel this will be an amazing color on seriously anyone. it doesn't dry the lips. stays put for a few hours at least. and even If this color and lipstick wasn't $2.99 I WOULD STILL BUY IT. but lucky for me it's that price ! ♥

Amazing color ! Stays on forever. I have two shades pure red and bloody mary. They blend very well together and they won't dry out. The reds are intense, I also use a red lip liner called red hot and it makes my lips looks amazing and fuller than they already are. If you can't afford MAC then buy these.
Definitely a great red lippy!
I own two red lippies from NYX- Xtreme lip cream in Spicy and Round lipstick in Electra. Electra is not a true red color but it's red. It's a little darker than the regular "red" color, but I really love it. The formulation is really good and it glides on really easy on the lips. The lasting power of this lippy is also great but of course, it's still better if you add a lip liner before applying this if you want to last it all day!
Honey is a beautiful warm light nude, perfect color to complement my skin. It's awesome having such a huge choice of colors from a drugstore line-up and I will definitely grab more colors soon. Though I love the colors, I personally do not love the formula. It's very thin, melts in the tube as I'm holding it (the product then leans and scrapes the side, making a big mess), and has a fragrance. The fragrance isn't bad, it just feels wrong having such an unfoodlike smell on my lips. Any minty or fruity smell would have been awesome, but the floral just doesn't work so well for me. The product is so light on the lips that I am paranoid and constantly checking that it hasn't just evaporated off. I'm sure I'll eventually get used to it, but other lipsticks are just so much more pleasant to wear.
I've been looking for a lavender/purple lip color for a while. When I saw this at Ulta, I was excited to try it based on the hype and the low price. Well, it was definitely worth it! It's a nice pink-based lavender with a bit of a silvery frostiness to it. On my lips, it's not too bright of a purple that it's unwearable, and I could see myself using it as an everyday color. The formula is creamy and goes on well, and it stays on fairly well without a lip liner. Very nice!
