NYX Wicked Lippies

Oh man, i got some gorgeous lip colors. NYX has this fun little line of lipsticks (Wicked Lippies) that are SO Bright and awesome, and I couldn't wait to try them all out! I got 4 to start, but after trying one for the first time, I'm definitely reserving judgement on the line as a whole, cuz this first one is breaking my heart.

Black Milk Teal Galaxy v. St. Vitus inside out dress, Gilly Hicks Sweater, Modern Vice flats

I wanted to love these beauties so much, but I just don't. I started with Envy, this vibrant, dark royal blue, and the color is absolutely lovely. If it has the color consistency of UD revolution or matte lipstick, we'd be set. If it had the staying power of Lime Crime or texture of Bite, any of these would save this lipstick. It's super slick but not sticky, much like a nice lipgloss (or sheer lipstick), also with little color payout, and it's definitely not opaque. I would call this a sheer lipstick, but it's not even, along with the fact that this kind of color is not suited to a sheer lip. i can go over the same spots again and again, and the opacity and evenness just isn't there.

It goes so nice with this dress though! If there weren't other problems with this thing, the color is spectacular. It's a great statement lipstick. So who knows, maybe if i can find a way to make this color go on nice, i'll be more excited about the line.


  1. That dress is stunning! The blue lipstick looks great on you. I've always wanted to try a blue lip but I'm not sure if I can pull it off.

    1. thanks so much! Blue is a ton of fun, you should definitely try it out! i think i have 6 different shades and i love all of them :)
