Hey my lovely people! I am going to just jump right into this NYX Wicked Lippies Review!
This is a new line of lipsticks from NYX. My Murphy was very intrigued by these (who am I kidding; he is super nosy every time my camera comes out!!!). And he wants to be a part of the action!
As much as I LOVE my dark lipsticks, I have never wandered into the “outside of the box” shades – like blue????
When NYX introduced this jewel-toned, metallic lip collection, I thought, “What the hell? I’ll try a few.” And at $6 a pop, why not? I figured these shades would be great for Halloween, or a special night out – like a concert?
My picks were Trickery, Cold Hearted, and Sinful (my description of the shades below):
Trickery – an olive/drab green with a gold sheen:
It applied evenly, and is probably the most “wearable” of the shades.
I actually like this shade! You may see me out and about with this one on!
Cold Hearted – charcoal gray with a metallic/silver sheen:
I had the highest hopes for this one. For some reason, I thought a gray lipstick would go great once my hair turned lavender.
This one applied very patchy (I’m sure you can see in the above photo). I may try it with a lip liner base to see if I can get it to work. I do love this though, and will continue working with this one. It really is a gorgeous shade!
Sinful – a jewel toned, aqua/teal blue:
This baby applied evenly, and was the surprise out of the bunch.
Overall, they applied super smoothly and are very opaque. They feel a little slippery on the lips – almost like a satin finish lipstick. Therefore they did require touch ups more frequently. But the wear time was pretty decent.
I have really enjoyed playing with these shades – great for Halloween or just doing it for fun!
Again, thanks for reading! kxoxo
