NYX has done it again! The brand has created edgy new pigments that are bold and otherworldly in a variety of metallic, shimmery hues. Recently there has been a lot dramatic lip trends on social media including unusual shades, glitter top coats and ombre so if you want your pout to stand out these lip creams are fabulous.
This lush formula is smooth, dazzling, glossy and multidimensional with consistent shimmer throughout. The pigmentation is very rich and saturated with unique shades like blue, black, green and gold plus the spectacular metallic effect is full-coverage! Although these creams are quite shocking (in a good way) I think of them as specialty shades since they aren't really appropriate for everyday wear.
The icy blue makes me look frozen and the deep navy is like a beautiful galaxy. The liquid gold reminds me of an Egyptian queen and the bright green is perfect for St. Patty’s Day. To the general public most of these colors may seem strange but I think makeup junkies will enjoy them. I would rock these at a cool parties, concerts, clubs and of course Halloween plus once you pair them with the right eye shadow they are mesmerizing!
The cream is a bit thick in texture but very spreadable, comfortable and easy to work with. It does transfer with contact and leave behind glitter fragments but the stunning finish is totally worth it. The formula won’t cause dryness and I don’t find it sticky or heavy.
If you are looking for brilliant new pigment with a sparkly twist these are great! They retail for just $10.00 each at Shoppers Drug Mart, free standing stores and online at nyxcosmetics.ca
