I have a serious problem.
A big issue.
Something that needs sorting out. STAT.
I am addicted to lipstick.
I never thought I’d say those words out loud. I never really thought about lipstick before and I’m usually always about the eyes, that is, until two things happened.
- I found Kylie Jenner.
- I fell in love with NYX lipstick.
You may have noticed I have a slight obsession with Kylie Jenner from previous posts, and I’m the type of gal who looks up to makeup artists such as Juliasallure & Nikkietutorials. I am most definitely not the type of girl to fawn over celebrities, nevermind the spawn of Momager Kris Jenner (Is she even still a Jenner?, okay, I may know a
lot little about said Kartrashians. They’re addictive OKAY!?) but Kylie Jenner is just a little ball of perfection and I am WILDLY Jealous.
NYX is a brand I coveted for years and lo-and-behold they’ve FINALLY started stocking it in Ireland. My first few purchases always included a lipstick of some sort, but as I’m a ‘collector’ of makeup, I still never reached for them. With the exception of my favourite colour in the whole world – Alabama – from their matte range. (This colour is a deep, burgandy red that would suit any colouring – ABOVE.)
Last week, I was perusing my local pharmacy looking for a colour that would be a dupe for MAC Velvet Teddy lipstick and Whirl lip liner. For the google-geek I am, I never thought of searching for NYX dupes for these however, I immediately spotted ‘Mauve’ lip liner and ‘Thalia’ lipstick. Perfect. Dupes. Instant. Love.
I wore those colours everyday for about two weeks – I went from never putting a thing on my lips to this!- until I became rebellious and pulled out another NYX favourite – Angel. Angel is a fab pink, my-lips-but-better shade that doesn’t look odd on me. (I find a lot of lipsticks look a tad weird!)
I also went and purchased NYX butter glosses. Another first for me, as I hate lipgloss. These babies are AMAZING.
Buttery, creamy, moisturising texture, fab scent and GREAT colour payoff. Want to know the BEST thing about these? – Wind & long hair are not a problem! No sticky, hairy lips! Godsend!
I’ve already bought Apple Strudel, Maple Blondie & Creme Brulee and worn them several times, on their own or over nude lipsticks.
I find myself daydreaming about lipstick now! I’ve baskets filled for both NYX and Makeup Revolution so come payday I will be rolling in lipstick 🙂
