I’m currently debating getting Mischievous, Wrath, and Risque, but I think I’ll be waiting to see your two cents on these guys. Risque reminds me a bit of that green that Rihanna wore earlier this year to the iHeartRadio awards.

Summer Avatar

Power and Wrath are gorgeous based off of these preliminary swatches. NYX never fails to impress me with their consistent quality. Thank you for the sneak peek!

Zainab Avatar

I like most of these and I hope they wear well. But RisquΓ© really grabs me, simply because I remember that really disappointing higher end one (I can’t remember the brand, I know the colour was Smeraldo).

Brianna Avatar

Wow! I’m not a huge fan of unconventional lippys but I know you and some friends are! Even though I wouldn’t use them, they are stunning!

Stone Cold, Mischievous, Scandalous, Power, and Cold Hearted should be arriving tomorrow. I’ll admit that I don’t have the most faith in NYX as far as pigmentation and longevity go, but these look like they could be a ton of fun for layering.

Helena Avatar

I don’t know about the Lime Crime but I have Black Lagoon by Portland Black Lipstick Co. (wearing it at the moment!) and Blow from Melt and it looks like a much brighter, paler Black Lagoon or metallic Blow to me, if you’re in the market for more greens πŸ™‚ I’m loving all the greens coming out.

Lizzi Avatar

Maybe unusual lip colors aren’t going to be so unusual anymore. More and more ‘colors’ have been showing up across all price points and brands in the past few years. When I was in high school and I went through my punk-y phase I had to order things like this from Manic Panic. And let me tell you, those lipsticks made the new Kat Von D formula (boo!) feel like the Buxom or Too Faced lipsticks. I do love RisquΓ©, but me actually wearing it is very slim. It least it’s a cheap brand so for fun it’s perfectly ok. Cost less than my usual Starbucks order… Lol!

i picked up betrayal , risque , sinful , immortal , cold hearted & envy last monday & they’ll be here tomorrow .

SO excited !!!

i’m also intrigued by pick up wrath , power , trickery & mischievous , but i’ll wait for your full review to decide if i want them .

hopefully they’ll be on the ulta site by the time they have another 40% off sale .

Odd colors can also be mixed with traditional colors to slightly alter them or color correct them.

Another use is for an ombre lip. A more conventional color can be worn on most of the lip, with a coordinating unconventional color in the center. For example, a brown or burgundy lip could use Immortal in the center.

Helena Avatar

I can’t WAIT for your review. I love unusual lip colours and if these are any good I’ll pick up a few – I love them all (except Scandalous, which looks like a worse version of Apocalips – and as my favourite lipstick, I could never replace Apocalips!)

Lucky they’re cheap…

In the 90s, when Sephora first came to America; thy had a few blues, greens and teals in their own range. I bought them all. Most have turned and I keep them in the ‘archival’ section of my caboodle but the matte navy and matte teal are still good. The inner 19 year old in me is so psyched blue lipstick is coming back especially that colorful hair and non-trad makeup are a little more acceptable now.

Tugce Avatar

Hmm I want to indulge in the “unconventional” lip colors so badly, but I think for now I am gonna play it safely and get Power, Betrayal and Cold Stone. I hope soon is the day I can rock Trickery and Sinful as well!

Sarah Avatar

wow, these are beautiful! i couldn’t pull lot of them off though πŸ™ but i definitely want to play around with some on the purples- Betrayal, Immortal, and Power!!

Melinda Avatar

Wow! These are all really unique and interesting. Right off the bat, the ones that grab my attention are:
Cold Hearted, Betrayal, Sinful, Scandelous, and RisquΓ©. I’m not sure how much use I would get out of them, but they are really cool!

Nin Avatar

Wow, love these! Really well pigmented interesting colours! I don’t know if I’d be confident enough to wear them though, maybe power, I love the look of anything rose-gold.

How would you wear them? ^_^

I snapped up Risque and Power the day they launched, lol! I’m so pumped for them to get to my house. I really loved the idea of Sinful and Envy, but unfortunately blues can go a little funny on me when it comes to lipstick. However I’m really hoping Risque will help me channel that Poison Ivy vibe, haha! To me it seems that kind of “wicked” green. πŸ˜›

Jenn Avatar

I like how the swatches look and also hope they stay long, even underwater.
Hey, it can totally pull off the Harley Quinn or Poison Ivy look. πŸ˜› Harley would probably be Cold Hearted or Betrayal (or Power, but that’s too natural for her/) Poison Ivy could be Risque and again Cold Hearted if going for the DCnU Poison Ivy. πŸ™‚

Margot Avatar

I’ve been waiting to get my hands on these since NYX teased them on Instagram!!! Bought Sinful, Risque, and Betrayal to start; I don’t usually go for metallics but these colors were too beautiful to pass on!

Nikky Avatar

I definitely want Risque, Power, and Cold Hearted for sure. Also either Betrayal, Envy, or Immortal. I’m kind of on the fence with Trickery, though it is really pretty. I’m just not sure how it would look on me

Sara Avatar

I love the look of these so much that I’ve had to comission someone to get them in the states and ship them over to me, because who knows when these will land in Australia

auxiliary beauty Avatar

I love that unconventional lip colors are becoming more popular! I wonder if green lipstick will seem totally ordinary and work-appropriate in twenty years. πŸ™‚ Wrath, Power, and Cold Hearted are my favorites here. Betrayal is also beautiful, but it looks a little patchy in the swatch–I’m curious to see how it does in the review!

Megan Avatar

Oohhh! Betrayal looks gorgeous! I’ll be eagerly awaiting your review on the formula. I think I’ll definitely pick up a few, regardless of how they perform. The price point is perfect.

Rachel R. Avatar

Thanks for the swatches. I’m really looking forward to your reviews, as always.

I ordered all of these as soon as I got the email from Nyx. It was payday for me, so I figure it was destiny. I adore the Macarons, so I’m hoping these are as good. I’ve only seen one other swatch set that was not Nyx’s. So far, I’m liking what I see. I can’t wait to try them out. I have a fantasy that Trickery will look really good with Notoriously Morbid’s Autumn Flower shadow on my eyes.

artemis Avatar

They look pretty and interesting πŸ˜€ I like the greens and blues the most and the copper. I especially like Scandalous :))) sadly, I’m afraid of wearing such colors outside :))) idk whether i’ll celebrate halloween and with whom… :))) they’re not available here, anyway.

Fran Avatar

I would love to try Envy, Sinful, Betrayal, and Immortal. Purple lipsticks tend to look good on me, but any amount of brown is usually a problem. The teals would really be pushing the envelope for me. I could see layering Cold Wicked on top of a bright matte.

Kelsey Avatar

I’m really glad NYX came out with these… I hope they test well because odd colours are so much fun to play with but hard to find for cheap. Scandalous and betrayal are calling my name. Scandalous looks like it’s gonna be really patchy though so fingers crossed.

Helene Avatar

I want them all, well except Scandalous, I don’t think I’d be able to wear it without looking sickly, unfortunately. And I’d wear them. Age be damned! So much fun with lipcolours like these.
I agree, they should totally make eyeshadows to match, so we could mismatch them, or go for a monocrome look with eyes and lips in the same colour.
I am eagerly awaiting you review, while I do a happy dance πŸ™‚

Marian Avatar

Risque looks really similar to serpentina by lime crime. I hope these are really good formulas because I’m hoping to wear one for halloween! πŸ™‚

Kari Avatar

i know you said you don’t get press info, etc but do you think these will be coming to ulta? i’ve been stalking their site for days waiting for them to pop up, but no dice. i know i can buy from nyx and i’ll probably end up doing that but i’ve got a coupon from ulta i want to use LOL and that’s my only reasoning. plus, i’m too impatient to wait for shipping sometimes D: and instant gratification is so much better haha

Marissa Avatar

I want all of these! I’m secretly hoping most of them perform poorly so I’m not so tempted to actually buy all 12. NYX why must you taunt me so…
