NYX Key Lime, Pistachio, Blue Velvet Lipsticks

NYX Key Lime Macaron Lippie ($6.00 for 0.15 oz.) is supposed to be a “creamy and highly pigmented” formula that features more “pastel and neon” shades. They also note it has a “satin matte finish” and “long-wearing resilience.” The formula has a lot of slip to it, so it glides on and never tugs on lips, but it also had a tendency to go on somewhat unevenly (the degree dependent on the shade). The wear time for these three shades was a little longer than average. The formula was comfortable to wear, and it was neither drying nor hydrating.

NYX Envy, Sinful, Betrayal Wicked Lippies

NYX Envy Wicked Lippie ($6.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a bluish-purple with cool undertones and a metallic finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and it had the same really creamy consistency as other shades in the range. This one was loaded with shimmer, which helped to camouflage some of the underlying unevenness of the color itself, so it looked fairly good in person, even if up-close isn’t 100% amazing. It wore well for six and a half hours, and it left behind an eggplant-hued stain behind. NYX Immortal (P, $6.00) is much purpler. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Technopagan (P, $18.00) is darker, richer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

NYX Trickery, Risque, Scandalous Wicked Lippies

NYX Wicked Lippie ($6.00 for 0.15 oz.) recently released, and the formula is described as “richly pigmented” and having a “dazzling metallic finish.” The best way for me to sum up the formula was: surprising, in a good way. Most of the shades are quite metallic, and most of them have good color payoff. The formula is creamy and slippery, yet many of the shades went on well without too much unevenness (though some were problematic, see Scandalous below). I expected they’d wear away quickly, due to the slippery nature of the texture, but they wore about average (four hours) or longer. I didn’t notice any scent or taste for most, though a couple had a very subtle waxy scent that I noticed in the tube but not on.
