Nyx Matte Lipstick Review – MLS17 “Sweet Pink”

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 20th April 2015

Hello everyone!

As promised in my previous review of the Nyx Matte Lipstick in “Indie Flick”, this post is going to be a review of another Nyx lipstick that I picked up.

Nyx3

Pink lips are certainly a girly favourite and I already own more than my fair share! They’re extremely fun and are perfect for the spring/summer time!

What NYX Says :

NYX Matte Lipsticks are highly pigmented, richly formulated and long-wearing. The formula glides on smoothly and stays put with a non-drying matte finish.

Ingredients :

Bees Wax, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) wax, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla)wax, Ceresin, Microcrystalline Wax, Polyethylene, Octyldodeanol, Polyisobutene, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Oleyl Alcohol, Isopropyl Palmitate, Isostearyl Isostearate, Bis-Digylceryl Polyacyladipade-2, Tocopheryl Acetate, B.H.A, and Fragrance. MAY CONTAIN: Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxide Red (CI 77491), Iron Oxide Yellow (CI 77492), Iron Oxide Black (CI 77499), D&C Red No.6 (CI 15850), D&C Red No.7 (CI 15850), D&C Red No.27 Aluminum Lake (CI 45410), FD&C Yellow No.5 Aluminum Lake (CI 19140), FD&C Blue No.1 Aluminum Lake (CI 42090), or D&C Red No.36 (CI 12085).

Price : Rs. 570/- from Sephora (India). However, they retail for only $6.00 in the United States.

Packaging :

Nyx7

They come in a black matte packaging which is sturdy and sophisticated. It shuts with a satisfying click and I love how you can see the actual colour of the lipstick without having to open it. It really helps to be able to see the colour of each lipstick when you have more than one in your collection.

Nyx2

My Thoughts :

The pigmentation is ON POINT! If you have any issues with pigmented or darkened lips, these will cover them perfectly. They have incredible colour pay-off in a single swipe and can also be layered to achieve superior coverage and bang-on colour. What you see in the tube is exactly what you get. I always prefer bold lipsticks to be matte because they do not bleed out of the lip line.

The application is super smooth without any tugging and they do not feel like a drying matte lipstick either. However, you will need exfoliated and well-prepared lips in order to rock these as they will highlight and grab onto any dry patch.

Nyx8

They last for a good 5-6 hours leaving a soft stain of colour behind and are completely water-proof but not entirely transfer-proof since they don’t have an extremely dry matte formula. Fret not, they will not smear around on your face though!

“Sweet Pink” is a beautiful, bold and summer appropriate mauve pink shade. It looks bright and catchy in person and looks especially stunning with winged eyes. It will look great on almost every single skin tone and it has a slightly more wearable quality than a neon shade due to the mauve under-tone.

Nyx9

The Good :

1. Extremely Pigmented

2. Silky and Non-Drying Matte Texture

3. Comfortable To Wear

4. Does Not Smear or Smudge

5. Travel Friendly

6. Colour Visible On Packaging

7. Inexpensive

8. Very Slight but Non-Offensive Smell

The Could Be Better :

1. Not As Easily Available in India.

2. Will Highlight Any Dry Patch On The Lips

L5

Overall :

I am very happy with these lipsticks and would recommend everyone to try a few shades from this range. They come in a whopping 33 shades so there is a colour for everyone! I will definitely look into some other colours to add to my stash.

I hope you enjoyed reading!

Nyx Matte Lipstick Review – MLS05 “Indie Flick”

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 12th April 2015

Hello everyone!

As you may have read in the title, this post is going to be a review of my all time favourite bright orange lipstick! I picked two of these up from Sephora (India) and wanted some more but unfortunately, Sephora is never fully stocked with NYX products!

Nyx3

I’m definitely big on matte lipsticks and I feel like they’re the most pigmented, fuss-free, transfer-proof and last for hours. I’m obsessed with orange lips for the spring/summer time and this was a very pleasant discovery! Read on to know more –

“Indie Flick” is a stunning, bold and summer appropriate neon orange shade. It looks bright and catchy in person and I would suggest you to keep the rest of your makeup limited to muted browns to let this colour speak for itself. It will look great on almost every single skin tone and looks especially gorgeous with slightly tanned skin.

New Chambor Powder Matte Lipsticks “175 Sugar Pink”, “176 Pink Flamingo” and “177 Crimson Red” Review, Photos, Swatches!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Thursday, 13th February 2014

Hello everyone!

Hope you’re having a wonderful time during Valentine’s week with your special someone! ❤

Those of you who are single, this is the perfect excuse to OD on chocolate! 😛

Anyway, I am here to talk about my current favorite lipsticks by Chambor! I love Chambor! Their Silver Shadow compact is my all time favorite compact and I always have a backup of it in my vanity.

I hauled these lipsticks during my haul series. Haul Series Part 4 – Sleek and Chambor Makeup!

Image

I will be reviewing 3 beautiful shades from this range today.

What Chambor Says :

An Innovative Formulated Lipstick which has both Moisturizer + Matte Effect in it. Powder Matte Lipsticks have a Non-Drying Triple Action Formula which :

    • Hydrates – Vitamin A and Jojoba Oil
    • Protects from the sun – UVA & UVB Filters (SPF-15)
    • Has anti aging formula which softens and smoothens the lips – Vitamin E
    • Emollients: For creaminess and comfort & gliding effect.
    • Long wearing & water resistant.
    • Has spherical powders to get the ultimate Matte Effect.
    • No Animal Ingredients.
    • Dermatological Tested.
    • Regular use of Powder Matte Lipsticks makes the Lips Soft & Healthy.

Ingredients :

Price : Rs. 595/-

My Thoughts On The Product :

These lipsticks have been repackaged and the price has been increased. These are the “New” powder matte lipsticks in their new casing. I am not sure if the product itself has been reformulated. The internet is flooded with reviews of the old ones but I don’t know why nobody else has reviewed these yet!

The lipstick comes in a sleek black case with a silver rim where the cap shuts. I wish they showed the color of the lipstick outside on the packaging because when you have more than one of these in your collection, you have to read the name of the shade on the bottom!

Image

The pigmentation on these lipsticks is fantastic. They will cover any issues of pigmented lips and look fabulous. One swipe will give you full pigmentation but you can blot them down and wear them a little sheer if you like. I like to wear them full power because the shades are just so beautiful!

The texture, although matte, isn’t entirely drying. I won’t say its moisturizing because it isn’t but it is still very comfortable to wear. Being a matte lipstick, I don’t feel like my lips have been chapped dry when I wear these. However, before wearing these, you need to make sure your lips are exfoliated and soft as they will cling to dry patches, if any.

They apply smoothly and do not tug on the delicate skin of the lips. They will stay on for 5-6 hours with very little transfer and fade evenly leaving behind a light stain. After that the lips start to feel a little dry. But, nothing that some lip balm can’t take care of! You may need to touch up after consuming an oily meal.

They are completely waterproof and do not settle into fine lines. The smell is pleasant and not overpowering at all!

Whenever I wear bold lipstick, I prefer it to be matte. That way, the color doesn’t feather out and I don’t have to be afraid of smears!

1. 175 Sugar Pink

Image

This is a beautiful nudey shade. It is pinky, peachy and nudey at the same time. Perfect for everyday!

Image

Here is how it looks on me :

Image

2. 176 Pink Flamingo

Image

This is the most amazing hot pink shade. It is my current favorite hot pink. Honestly, I’d wear this everyday! 😛

Image

Here is how it looks on me :

Image

3. 177 Crimson Red

Image

This is a true maroon. Its the perfect shade for fall/winter as it is a very deep rich red.

Image

Here is how it looks on me :

Crimson

The GOOD :

1. Amazing Staying Power

2. Non-Transferable

3. Supreme Pigmentation

4. Easily Available

5. Non-Offensive Smell

6. Won’t Settle Into Fine Lines

7. Beautiful Silky Matte Texture

8. Travel Friendly

The Could Be Better :

1. Slightly drying

2. Price may be a con for some

3. Shade not shown on the packaging

Overall :

I am extremely content with these lipsticks and would recommend them to everyone who likes matte lips! I will definitely repurchase the shades that I have when I run out of them but I also want to try other shades from this range.
