I love all of the Beauty Advent Calendars and this year I chose the NYX Lippie Countdown Calendar. I thought I would share with you the first 12 lippies, but first a few words on the calendar itself. I love its simple design and I also love that it opens like a book because this means it stands on its own.
NYX Matte Lipstick in Eden. This is a lovely bright red. I really like the formula of the matte lipsticks, they are not drying.
NYX Liquid Suede in Soft-Spoken. This is my favourite so far, I actually wore this one to my work Christmas do with a dark smokey eye.
NYX Simply Vamp Lip Cream in She Devil. This is a creamy crayon type stick and I do struggle to apply these. I find that they always look patchy.
NYX Lingerie in Push-Up. This is a really beautiful nude.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Paris. This is definitely a summer colour but I love it!
NYX Butter Lipstick in Seashell. I think this colour is a bit too pale for me and the formula is so creamy I did feel like it was sliding everywhere.
NYX Intense Butter Gloss. This is for those days when you just want to be a mermaid?
NYX Butter Gloss Creme Brûlée. This is a very sheer, very shiny pink gloss.
NYX Matte Lipstick in Up The Bass. Another unusual colour for me. Not sure I will get much wear out of this one but may come in handy for Halloween looks.
NYX Lingerie in Corset. This is slightly more of an ashy brown nude than the one above. Personally I prefer my nudes with a little more peach.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Sao Paulo. Another beautiful bright summer shade!
NYX Matte Lipstick in Indie Flick. This is a fantastic orange red. Christmas with a bit extra!
I will be back with the other 12 after Christmas as I am opening these on the day (rather than ahead of time) and because I don’t think my lips would have survived more than 12 swatches!
What beauty advent calendar do you have?
