Haul, Review & Swatches: NYX Round Lipsticks and Round Lipgloss

I'm so happy that I found a very trusted seller who sells the cheapest NYX cosmetics!!
Visit her facebook site (Kiko's Angels) at
I got two round lipsticks, it was a buy one take one promo for only 299php,
and two round lipglosses at 160 each.
It was for pre-order so you have to wait patiently for
the arrival of the items,
but it's definitely worth it.
The seller, Miss Bevs, is very accomodating and kind.^^

Nyx Round lipstick in Narcissus & Orange Soda,
Round lipgloss in Real Nude and Pinky Natural

For now I'll do a review/swatch of the round lippies and glosses.
I've seen lots of reviews about it, and it's my turn to give mine.

First lippie is the famous Orange Soda.

Don't get intimidated because of the word "Orange",
coz it's not what you think it is.
I really want to get Pumpkin Pie but I thought it's paler than this.
But I was wrong.

The lipstick is very creamy and has a faint scent,
kinda like citrusy-druggy smell. lol
Everytime I try the lippies on it reminds me of the smell
of an operating room. It has a strong scent that I can even taste
after I put it on my lips, but somehow tolerable.

color swatch:
I thought it's going to be peachy or orange, but it was like a concealer-like
lipstick on my lips. Due to its creaminess I suggest you use a good base so that it won't easily
slide off from your lips.

The reason why it looks soo pale on me is because I'm a pale
person in the first place.
But it is indeed a good nude lippie,
especially when paired with a pink gloss on top.

Orange soda plus Real Nude lipgloss

It can absolutely rock a heavy smokey eye makeup.

Next is the round lipstick in Narcissus

It is a bubble gum-my pale pink lipstick.
The texture, consistency and scent is very similar to Orange Soda.

color swatch:
Narcissus can be shocking if applied thickly, so be sure to apply it
the way you want it. thinner or thicker, it's up to you, but you'll be getting attention for this one.^^

Narcissus suits fair skinned gals, because it looks too pale on morena
and dark skinned ones.

Next: lipgloss swatches

Real Nude

I already uploaded pinky natural before but it's missing!!
I might post it soon.

Sometimes NYX lippies slide off from my lips, and sometimes it stains my teeth,
but with the right lip base or primer it won't happen, or if you apply it thinly.
But they really are the cheaper version of Mac Cosmetics. The colors are gorgeous
and compliment different skin tones. If only I'm not on a tight budget,
I will definitely purchase more from Sis Bevs.^^
Check out her site, she has an ongoing promo of 2 Round Lippies for only 289 pesos!!
