A few NYX swatches…


A while ago the fabulous Kathy from kathyfuckingjacobs sent me a bunch of awesome Nyx lipsticks, because she’s awesome. I really like the Nyx Round Lipsticks, the selection is amazing and they’re always opaque and easy to wear. And pretty damn cheap as well!


Nyx Round Lipstick in Almost Black

Nyx Almost Black

Oooooooh, guuuuuurl! This is awesome! “Almost Black” it ain’t – it’s just a very dark purple. I know a lot of people who don’t get on with NYX Medusa, and though this is less auberginey and pretty different, if you want a cheap “goth” colour of lippy, I’d totally recommend this one.

Nyx Round Lipstick in Saturn

Nyx Saturn

A really hard one to describe… I think it looks more red in real life than this photo, but it is really frosty. It’s pretty cool and I’m quite interested to try this with different liners.

Nyx Round Lipstick in Penelope


It looks a little purple here in the photo but in real life, it just looks black to my eye. I’ve not worn this out yet, but I think I’d wear it over a black eye pencil and that that should keep it pretty much in check as it’s pretty glossy, I’d worry about it feathering and with black that just looks terrible!

Nyx Round Lipstick in Indian Pink

Nyx Indian Pink

I adore this colour! A lovely pinky-peach which is bright enough to make it the focus of your look but not so bright you’d feel like a dumbass wearing it at work/to Tesco/to sit in on your arse and watch Take Me Out etc.

NYX Megashine Lipgloss in Chandelier

NYX Chandelier

The perfect every day pink gloss! It’s SO shiny and glossy and gorgeous and goes with everything – winner!


Sorry it’s been mostly swatches from me (and sporadic ones at that) of late but I’ve been a busy bee doing shoots and going home to see my family and stuff. I have some photos from shoots to show y’all soon and hopefully some manis and a Sleek Eau La La Liner review as well!


What are your favourite NYX products?


  1. These are all really pretty! Almost Black is such a neat color!

  2. I haven't tried NYX lipsticks, but the first one 'almost black' reminds me of Rimmel 'black cherries'.Yes I owned it and wore it...

  3. I love some of the eyeshadow for the bright pigment but lipsticks are my favorite. Indian Pink is pretty and my favorite!! :D The Pinky Natural & Natural lipglosses are good too.

  4. I want Almost Black and Penelope! I don't have anything from NYX yet.

  5. Almost Black looks very similar to MAC's "Cyber" lipstick!

    1. Oooh, I keep thinking about Cyber. I'll take AB in to MAC next time I go to convince myself I don't need it.

  6. Indian Pink and Saturn look great on you!
