As promised I am slowly posting my haul at the IMATS but since I bought a LOT I have to break it down before this post ends up being 6 pages long. So I will start with the lip products I bought at the NYX concession. I have swatched them on my lips below so you can see how they look on my skin.
Starting with the ‘Xtreme Shine Lip Cream’ in ‘Bonfire’ (top) and ‘Dolly Girl’ (bottom). Bonfire is a lovely pinky nude and Dolly Girl is a brighter pink. Both colours are great and have amazing stain power. They are glossy but highly pigmented. LOVE!
Next come the ‘Soft Matte Lip Cream’ in ‘Sao Paulo’ (top) and ‘Amsterdam’ (bottom). Sao Paulo is definitely my favourite nude shade ever! It’s a matte finish, doesn’t feel drying and again the pigment! Amsterdam is a WOW colour, it looks red but it has pink tones to it making it very wearable during the day. It’s coming off a little light in the picture but it is brighter than shown below.
And lastly we have the famous ‘butter gloss’ in ‘Cherry Cheesecake’ (top) and ‘Strawberry Parfait'(bottom). First of all the names! they sound delicious and they smell like it too! In fact all the lip products smell Ah-mazing… little hard not to eat it. I really like the cherry cheesecake lipgloss, its a subtle orange which I think looks great on its on or on top of a lipstick. Strawberry Parfait is a little light I think for wearing on it’s own however I will test it out on top of my lipstick.
And that’s all folks for today. I will be posting more soon.
Until next time…
