If you’re a makeup artist or makeup lover in Nigeria, I’m sure you’ll be familiar with the stomach-upsetting wait when you pre-order makeup items; these are worst ‘week(s)’ of my life or even month(s) (we know the degree of inefficiency of The Nigerian Customs) *Sigh* and the butterfly-effect in your stomach when you get the “your items are ready for pickup” call!
Imagine my excitement when I held my goody bag! I was literally jumping up and down and doing the shmoney dance. *hahahaha!*
Decided to splash on Nyx Cosmetics products last December, took awfully long to be released from the Nigerian Port but boy were these babies worth the wait!
- Nyx: The “it” List aka The Naturals
- Dewy Finish Setting Spray
- Nyx Angel Veil (Skin Perfecting Primer) (60ml)
- Wicked Lippie in Sinful (WIL05)
I’ll post a detailed review of each later on but will concentrating on NYX the ‘it’ List maintenant
THE ‘It’ LIST (The Naturals)
This is a natural lippie set comprising of 5 slightly different (color-wise) gorgeous lippies. Ranges from super glossy, to butter, to matte finishes!
- Butter Gloss (BLG05)
This one in particular is called Creme Brulee and as the name goes, it feels like butter on your lips; light, not sticky
- Mega Shine Lip Gloss (LG155)
This one is almost like a normal clear lip-gloss; the distinguishing fact is that it has a moderate amount of shiny pigments in it. keyword “Moderate” because I’ve come across lip-glosses with a tad too much sparkle which looks tacky when you wear it but this one is just right!
- Lip Plumper (PIU06)
You see the syringe-like diagram on the body? I was half-expecting the exact build when i opened it *I watch too much TLC, I know..LOL!*
That’s the company’s claim (diagram above), this one feels minty when you apply it…like almost the same feeling you get from LA Girls Glazed Lip Paints and you actually see your lips look fuller.
- Soft Matte Lip Cream (SMLC05)
I was most excited when it got to this one! I couldn’t stop pouting!!! Antwerp (which is one of the Matte Lip Cream series) is a very pretty shade of rose and it looks amazeballs on dark skin tones! iLove!
- Xtreme Shine Lip Cream (XLC10)
Here is a collage…
They all can be worn alone or with lipsticks and other lip-glosses. If you like, you can mix and match them to create a custom lippie. *raise your hands if you love the sound of that!*
