FOTN: Stone Fox

Yesterday, I posted in my website a review of NYX Liquid Suede in Stone Fox–A deep gray with blue undertone liquid creme lipstick. I mentioned that I did a look with it.

With a gray lipstick, it’s easy to look dead or washed out. So I did this makeup somewhat as a guide to help create a look to match with the rockin’ Stone Fox. 🙂 Tbh, I forgot most of the products I used, but you don’t have to limit yourself to the same products. You can use what you already have or something similar.

New buys from NYX, Maybelline, and The Body Shop

I only wanted to check the NYX stall in SM Makati, but ended up buying and even two more items.

NYX Liquid Sude in Stone Fox, Maybelline Creamy Matte in Touch of Spice, and The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain in Dusty Rose 037
Left to right: NYX Liquid Suede in Stone Fox, Maybelline Creamy Matte in Touch of Spice, and The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain in Dusty Rose 037

Initial thoughts:
NYX Liquid Sude in Stone Fox: I’ve only used once so far. It felt comfortable on my lips, but I have yet to test this longer.
Maybelline Creamy Matte in Touch of Spice: This sold out quickly when it was first released here. I had to get one the instant I saw it at Maybelline’s, but this was actually disappointing. 🙁
The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain in Dusty Rose 037: I thought I had a dud because there was a build up of product on the applicator. 😐 It has a thick consistency unlike Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain.

2016 Summer Giveaway

We have been writing about several products that we love for years now. This year we plan to feature more products but also reach out to our readers. We want to hear what you think about the products we’ve reviewed before, and what’s a better way to let you, my dear, experience the products other than to give them to you.

That’s right, we are giving away some stuff that you should try for summer! Some of these would look familiar as we have talked about them before, while there are also new ones too.

And Cold Hearted looks very nice too.

NYX Cold Hearted Wicked Lipstick

Would this be available locally? I would look _dead_ hot with Risque while sexy with Cold Hearted. LOLOL! You know I kid. 😛 I hope they’re no fail, but besides longevity, NYX lippies work for me.

NYX Butter Gloss in Cherry Pie

This week _I shall challenge myself_ to blog about lip glosses. Good luck to me! Because you know how I can be such a procrastinator. 😛

I’m trying to like NYX lip products. Well, lip products are what I only own from them. I can’t say I fully like them. The NYX Butter Glosses are a hype over a lot of many beauty bloggers. I thought I should try as well. I got the Cherry Pie shade.

NYX Butter Gloss in Cherry Pie 001

Cherry Pie is a red lip gloss that can be layered from slight sheer to very opaque coverage. The size of the lip gloss’s brush applicator is right for my thin lips. I forgot to take a picture of that. LOL

Revlon and NYX lippies

I had a makeup buying withdrawal last month (such #firstworldproblems!), so I went to SM’s beauty area to buy a few drugstore lippies. They were also on sale too. 😛

First NYX purchase

I don’t think NYX is a popular brand. Unless you’re really into cosmetics, you would have definitely heard of them. NYX has a huge line of cosmetics. They’re known for their affordability. Based on the NYX website:

NYX offers the best quality of cosmetics at attractive prices. Yes, that’s right, you can splurge without guilt. This has made NYX the fastest growing cosmetic company in the United States. The ultramodern and stylish packaging fused with the huge selection of highly pigmented colors continues to catch the eyes of many hip and sophisticated makeup gurus and has become a fave in their kits.
