NYX Round Lipstick Swatches

I went on a lipstick binge and bought some NYX Round Lipstick.
I bought 15 and my total cost was $22 something (including shipping and taxes) - all purchased here. MsCuppyCakes has the cheapest prices for Round Lipsticks that I've found so far.

I listed two different swatches - one on my skin and another on paper.
I included a swatch of the other 4 NYX lipsticks I had already owned on the paper swatch.

Stand Outs
Electra (Chaos, Hero are similar)
Fig
LaLa
Power
Echo - is the perfect nude for me (I'm NC44/45)
Hermes

Orange Soda - I really liked this but it's bright and suitable but can be toned down and I see it as a great Summer shade

Skip This Sh--

Christie
Apollo
Watermelon
All were a bit sheer and had goldish-shimmer to it which is not flattering at all. I was trying to think what skintone or who it might suit best? Most likely lighter skintone. I guess it's personal preference but I didn't dig the shimmer at all.


Eh - You's OK
Femme - somewhat a dupe for MAC'S Vegas Volt
Castle - purple/lavendar lipstick fans should check this one out
Creamy Beige


Want to see side by side comparisons or swatches on my lips, etc - let me know.

  5. @Rai - did she? I was suspecting she did but it still came out pretty cheap for me. I know there's a $0.50 more difference between here lipsticks and CC - which in the end including h&s/tax would still be cheaper then CC.

    ...yes, girls - skip the watermelon. I don't believe many would like it to be honest but for a $1.25 - I wasn't tripping to much. REGIFT! Lol.

  6. Cherry Culture's shipping is $5.95, her shipping is now $5.25.

    Her prices are a bit cheaper than them, but the shipping is getting rather close.. ehh. :/
    I'm so damn cheap when it comes to shipping. LMAO!
    BTW, NYX is suppose to be having some type of sale, but it has yet to start though.
