Went to the supersale bazaar last weekend and got these beauties there (from digital traincase booth).

I havent got into the nyx band wagon because i havent really tried/tested their products myself.

So going to the bazaar and trying out nyx products first hand was really an eye opener! I think i will get hooked! Good thing nyx products are very affordable πŸ™‚

Anyway, here’s what i got:


I’ll post a detailed review with swatches after i’ve given these products a go. (expect my reviews in a week because thats usually how long i try products before commenting hehe)

Will post my review of the naked 2 next. Have been trying it for almost 2 weeks with different types of brushes πŸ™‚ im about ready to give my reviews πŸ™‚

Thats all for now. Will be blogging more in the coming days. So please watch out for that.

and my obsession continues with this new product! ayayay!!! this is actually my first ever NYX product and i must say that i am very impressed.

i just got my NYX soft matte lip cream in addis ababa from digital traincase. it’s described as a very bright blue-based pink. actually, it’s very very very bright! teehee. and i absolutely LOVE it! ❀

isnt it goorrgeeeouuusss???

here’s a swatch:

i actually think this can pass as a dupe for NARS Schiap… here’s a swatch of the two together:

almost the same right? the top one is NYX and the bottom is NARS

here’s how it looks like on my lips πŸ™‚

i only applied a sheer layer. you can build up the color to achieve the intensity that you want.

what i like:

– the color is sooo pretty!!! i think it’s the perfect hot pink color.

– for the price i paid, the color payoff is amazing!

– for a matte lipstick, it’s not drying on the lips. when you apply it, it goes on very very creamy but after a while, it turns matte. cool huh?

– it’s cheap! i only paid P350 for this product! (compared to my NARS schiap)

– the color stays on your lips for a verrrryyy long time! it stayed on for 3 hours and it only disappeared after i had dinner!

– it’s easier to apply and it goes on more opaque than NARS schiap

– it’s ALMOST kiss-proof! see picture below LOL

a smack on the cheek and it’s not so visible hehe. can pass as rosy cheeks LOL

what i dont like:

– i guess personally, it’ll be hard for me to pull it off. but it’s only because of my personal style. BUT i don’t care! hahaha.

– i liked the vanilla scent of the gloss, BUT it may be a bit overwhelming for others


mrskendz’ verdict: highly recommended!

this product is amazing!!! will i purchase again? probably NOT. because i don’t think i’ll ever finish this tube. HOWEVER, i WILL definitely buy more in different shades. i am already planning what shades to get! πŸ™‚

hope you like this review guys! please leave a comment below for any questions…

good night everyone!


mrskendz and my VERY special guest πŸ˜€
