NYX Round Lipstick Swatches

Strangly Tea Rose is not rose at all when on my lips but swatched its dark.

Notes: Paris looks like a darkish pink but goes on much lighter, Narcissus is seriously brighter then bubble gum pink, I tried to edit the color in photoshop but they didn't even have it. Everything else is pretty much spot on except Margerita is a little bit lighter.

You're welcome Ariana, I'm glad I could help. Summer Love is a must have, I cannot rave about it enough.

Apple Diva said...

Ok Katrina, I placed my NYX l/s order today and I would have ordered Ceto and Saturn. Thanks a lot!!! LOL
I will place these colors on my wish list for the next order.

You are the best!! Keep the swatches rolling!!

Katrina said...

Nanzy your swatch of Tea Rose is how it looks on my lips, but on my arm it was pink! That is so weird.

Apple Diva I am so sorry! At least you'll have something to look forward to next time!

Lily said...

oooh summer love is nice!! i've been wanting to get circe, but it keeps getting sold out!

Katrina said...

You could always try Honey, its very similar

Vanessa said...

Lovely swatches Katrina! I love the NYX Round Lipsticks! But I DO hate how their colors don't match the swatches on some websites or the name!

Katrina said...

Thank you Vanessa. Me too, luckly there are a lot of good bloggers who do nice swatches.

Nice collection! There are some really beautiful lippies in there, I've never tried NYX before...I might have to have a look at Cherry Culture. :)

Katrina said...

NYX lipsticks are the best, and so cheap too. Definitly check them out.

Alyssa said...

Thank you for doing swatches. I love seeing swatches so I have an idea which products I want! :)

virtualbabe said...

Thanks for sharing. I ordered Circe, Darling and Thalia so can't wait to get it in the mail. Milan, Doll and Ceto looks pretty, I think I'll be purchasing those on my next order... hehe. Isn't Hebe a reddish hue? It looks kind of mauve, maybe it's my screen. But then again, the swatches on these online stores are not accurate. Thanks again.

Katrina said...

Its my pleasure! Hebe is very raspberry, not mauve. I think I might have a better swatch some where on my blog.

hi!! is summer love and harmonica frosty (pearly??).. are they matte or glossy?

Katrina said...

Summer Love is more pearly, Harmonica is frosty.

Skin Care Products said...

All the shades are cool but I liked the Summer Love and Thalia the most. Thanks for the sharing. I’ll buy it soon.

What a great idea! Because you really can't tell the real color from the pics from the website. Thanks!!!

chichi said...

hi there, great swatch you have here.

two questions:
1. what's the diff between margerita and femme? by that i mean which do you think is a better coral shade?
2. does margerita have frost, satin or shimmer finish?

Katrina said...

Chichi the difference is that Margerita is frosty while Femme is a cream. Femme is also a bit more coral while Margerite has a bit more orange. Hope that helps.
