NYX Cosmetics sent me their entire “Wicked Lippies” lipstick line. This entails 12, unique jewel-toned lipsticks. To tell you the truth, I don’t think I will get a lot of wear from these just because the shades are not my preference but they are really unique and I know that the metallic lipstick trend is forthcoming. The lipsticks retail for USD$6.00 each.
There’s copper, gold, silver, blues, purples, greens… all very rich shades which are definitely not seen often in lipsticks.
They are a satin finish, leaving them moisturizing on the lips which is nice. They tend to slide a bit so using a lip liner would be preferable. They are, for the most part pretty pigmented. Here are the swatches on my lips
A true metallic gold
A rich copper
STONE COLD (WIL06)
An iridescent pearl
A soft metallic berry
Olive green with a gold undertone
Deep metallic forest green
Teal with silver shimmer
Deep vamp purple with pearl
Deep cobalt blue with subtle silver pearl
Royal metallic blue with silver shimmer
Bright purple with purple shimmer
COLD HEARTED (WIL11)
Deep metallic granite with silver shimmer
So that’s it guys! Let me know what you think of these lippies and if there are any colours you are interested in!
