Alternate of Red Lips for the holidays | Current NYX Favorite





During the summer months, I seem to drift more towards nude lips but once the cold weather hits, I'm reeeeeally ready to add some color! For that reason, I thought I'd share my most recent NYX lipstick find that I think would look absolutely AMAZING on anyone! If a red lip isn't a favorite look for you but you're still really wanting to try a different lip than the norm then I think this color is something you should try!  NYX is such an inexpensive brand but in my opinion, comparable to MAC or any other high-end brand. The formula is amazing and super buttery along with the wear which is NEVER chalky or sticky, even the matte colors!
 I have to say tho, that this particular lipstick does have a slight scent but nothing too strong and it only seems to be THIS particular lipstick from the NYX line, I haven't noticed it with any of their other lipsticks/lip glosses.
 (By the way, I am SUPER sensitive to cosmetics in general and perfume in them and this didn't bother me at all, it was just noticed when I first applied it.)

The second thing is the NYX Pump it Up Lip Plumper and this stuff is perfect! It feels more minty rather than having the typical tingle-y feeling that other plumpers have. I personally bought this for the color rather than the plump and only noticed what it was once I took pictures, ha! I personally wouldn't buy it for the plumping action alone but the color itself was what sold me and even more so after I applied it because the application was so smooth and pigmented - it can definitely be worn alone or with a lipstick for extra color & shine.

I know this is a NYX current-fav but I paired it with my YSL #13 lipliner and they went SO WELL together. I need to try to find a dupe because I completely get that not everyone wants to spend that sort of money on a lipliner ;) I'll post a blog as soon as I find one that is close, if not identical so y'all can get the same look!
