I was looking for a nude lipstick for Ryoma and figure it'll be cheaper than buying from the pharmacy. On top of the nude lipstick, I also picked up a frosty pink lipstick on the way just to make the best out of the PosLaju charges.
|2 NYX lipsticks in shade Circe and Harmonica|
I was torn between the shade Honey and Circe as I've tried Honey before and it fitted me perfectly but Circe has always been a choice among most of my friends. One thing I leaned from my purchase is that the swatches on the website can't be trusted!!!
|Swatches from their main site.|
Circe seems to be chocolate brown while Harmonica is like a Strawberry Milk kind of pink. Slightly darker than the actual product colors. The magic continues when I tried swiping it! As I suspected, Circe was too dark on my lips but damage controlled with just dabbing a bit off my compact powder to my lips and whalla! Perfect blending~
Harmonica was a bit of a downer. I saw the swatches from other blogs and it seemed like a really nice color but when I tried it on I looked like a ganguro lacking the dark foundation. I looked terrible so no photos were snapped XD;; The color might look better if I combine it with a dark colored lipgloss. I'll try experimenting the posting up a makeup test T_T;;
