Three NYX Round Lipsticks in Circe, Strawberry Milk and Thalia, and a sample of MAC’s Vanilla pigment. Swatch tiiime!
I’ve been so excited about the lipsticks since I ordered them which must’ve been a couple of weeks ago now (but the shipping was quicker than the estimate they gave me ^_^;). I love how different they all look in natural light or flash! They’re all very creamy and moisturising without feeling greasy or oily.
Circe is a gorrrgeous nude colour, much much nicer than the oily GOSH 134, not chalky or drying like the Barry M 101, and not too pale like MAC Myth *glare*.
Strawberry Milk is the CUTEST bright bubblegum pink. Om nom nom, it looks good enough to eat!
Thalia is sort of like.. I don’t know how to explain it. It’s sort of a heathery pink colour I guess. The no flash picture doesn’t do it much justice, it’s really a lot nicer!
The MAC pigment sample is the first MAC product I’ve ever owned. Vanilla is definitely very pretty, I swatched it both dry and wet over UDPP but I can’t tell much difference between wet and dry application. Can you?
So yeah, really pretty but I don’t think I’d ever need to invest in a full size jar of a MAC pigment. The shopcraze sample was pretty generous, it says on their website that their samples are a 1/4 teaspoon but it looks more like a 1/2 teaspoon to me! I think I might just collect a range of different samples but like I said I don’t think I’ll never need a full size jar.
I leave you with my FOTD, featuring Vanilla pigment and NYX Strawberry Milk ;D
