NYX Lipstick Swatches

I have a small collection of NYX lipsticks and I figured I would share them with you!

So here I am in very simple makeup and nothing on my lips
"Harmonica"
This color totally reminds me of the color I would think of if someone were to say "porn star pink" haha, it's really pale and frosty and that's just what it reminds me of
"Baby Pink"
very similar to Harmonica but more purple
"Summer Love"
A pretty nude color
"Circe"
A lot of people really like this as a nude lip.  I am not one of those people.  I very rarely reach for this because I just don't like it on me
"Rea"
This color makes me look unbelievably sick.  It is waaay too gray for me.
"Narcissus"
I totally forgot about this lipstick when I showed you my bright pinks last week.  This is more of a true pink than my MAC "Pink Friday" lipstick, which pulls more purple
"Vitamin"
Haha obviously this one melted.  I like the color but I HATE these lipsticks that have the shimmer to them, they really show every line in your lips.  And in the full face shot, you can see how the color appears uneven on my lips even though it's not.
"Fig"
This color is BEAUTIFUL!!  This is probably my favorite out of all of them
"Indian Pink"
Again, a pretty color but it's shimmery so I never wear it
"Thalia"
A beautiful little bit darker than natural lip color
"Peach"
This is the worst lipstick.  Ever.  It's bad 90's to the extreme.  And again with the shimmer.
"Electra"
A beautiful, bright red.  This is my favorite red on me.  I apologize that it's messy, I didn't feel like making it perfect.
"Snow White"
A deep red, it's almost vampy on me.  Pretty but not my favorite.
So all in all, I really love these.  They don't feel as substantial on my lips as my MAC lipsticks do, they're also a bit more slippery feeling.  The pigmentation is great, as you can see and they're so cheap on cherryculture.com (especially when they have their 20% off sales).  Just DO NOT buy the ones that are shimmery because they aren't good.  I, however, (with the exception of Rea) love the ones that don't have shimmer in them.  And for less than $2 apiece, why not?
