NYX Rouge Creme Blushes

Today i would like to share the swatches of all the NYX Creme Blushes i acquired.


These babies sell for around $ 6-7 in the U.S and Php 360.00 from Sollie I did swatches of my first three creme blushes here but decided to redo the swatches for a better comparison of each shade. :)



Description from the NYX website :

NYX Rouge Cream Blush provides natural, radiant, long lasting color to the cheeks due to a specially formulated, creamy formulation. Simply dab NYX Rouge Cream Blush onto skin with fingertips to emulate the look of natural, youthful skin.


I fell inlove with these blushes coz they give a radiant glow to the face even if most shades dont have shimmer/frost finish.


Pixies of the Blushes from the Pan :

plus an attempt to descibe the shades the best way i can
(im bad at this, im sorry. :P )




CB01- Rose Petal
neutral nudy-pink




CB02- Natural
peachy nudy pink




CB05- Glow
glowing warm pink





CB07- Red Cheeks
gorgeous red





CB08- HotPink
hot pink! :P









CB09- Orange
bright orange




CB10- Golden
shimmery golden nude





CB11- Boho Chic
cool, pale pink with shimmer








The swatches :






all of them have a creamy, balm-ish texture to it except for HotPink and BohoChic that are extremely creamy and rich.


Only Golden and Boho Chic have a slight frosty/shimmery touch that adds more glow to the complexion.


When applied, it dries to a powder finish and doesnt feel greasy nor sticky, so i guess its quite comparable to the finish of NARS creme blushes.


i think these babies are far better than NARS creme blushes in terms of the price and wide selection of colors that are basically goof-proof (once used sparingly) as NARS creme blushes carry "scary" colors that can be easily overdone.


NYX Rouge Creme Blushes are best applied using a stippling brush/duo fibre brush or a foundie brush rather than using your fingers since its more likely that you rub off more color since the pressure from the fingers add more redness to the cheeks.


I almost forgot to mention that these can be used as lipcolors too! :)
Thats why id pick these over Stila Convertibles as those are super heavy on the cheeks and uber sticky to be used as lipcolors too!




These babies by the way have a 12-month shelf life from first use.


So i think i should get rid of some shades soon since i know i wont be able to use them all up for a year. wahaha!




That wraps up my say on NYX Rouge Creme Blushies! :)




Peace

Love,

Styli Style L3 Timeless Lippies

Hello again dearies!


2nd blog entry for today.. :)


I wasnt supposed to post another blog entry, but after doing swatches of the lippies i received in the mail, i got excited! haha! :P


So i wanna share to you ladies how pretty the lippies are...




Site Description :


L3 Timeless Lipstick is a romantic courtship between long-lasting color and shine.


L3 Timeless lipstick actually lasts 3 times longer than traditional shiny lipstick hence the L3 claim.


It is a full coverage lipstick that holds true to the lips which can last up to 8 hours (in unusual circumstances).


L3 Timeless lipstick is the first non-drying long-lasting lipstick to offer non-stop shine all-day moisture and a hi-shine finish.


L3 Timeless lipstick is packaged in a beautiful metal weighted case that actually looks like piece of jewelry and the color of the lipstick is silk screened on the top of easy shade identification.



L to R :
Romance -- Love -- Heavenly -- Beauty -- Spirit






Romance :
bright red. geisha/kabuki red. best red lippie ive tried so far. :)


Love :
a more pigmented version of spirit.
frosty carnation pink.




Heavenly :
NARS Orgasm lippie! :)


Beauty :
pinky nude. non-frost finish.


Spirit :
frosted pale pink.






What i Love about these lippies :


- the formula! doesnt make my lips dry
- the colors! the shades i got are MLBB shades! except for Romance of course haha!
- frost finish shades are not too frosty
- the scent, similar to MAC lippies but a bit lighter.. :)
- the price : i got them for Php 70.00 each
(i even got Romance as a freebie from my last haul)


What i Hate :


-NONE! :)




*** i just hope Meg stocks up on new shades of these babies so i can grab more for Mom and myself. :)


asking why they come cheap when Beauty Bar sells them for no lower than Php 500.00 each?


its because Styli Style is upgrading their packaging.. :)


Ebay sellers like Meg (jnlink777) get these items from clearance sales in the States and sell them dirt cheap here in the PI..




Thanks for droppin by! :)






Peace
&
Love
