NYX Lip Lacquer Pot Review and Swatches

Wednesday, July 7, 2010

Aside from the cream blushes, I also picked up a lip lacquer pot from the NYX booth.  There are a total of 12 shades available on the NYX website coming in at $6USD for 0.14oz/4g.  Out of the colors sold at IMATS, I only purchased LLP12 Okie Dokie Artichokie.  Now that I think about it, I should have also picked up Simply Red and Ultra Violet.

Each of the Lip Lacquer comes in a sturdy plastic pot with a black twist on cap.  I accidentally dropped it while doing swatches and surprisingly there are no dents or scratches on the pot. Similar to the cream blushes, these Lip Lacquer Pots are also made in Taiwan and distributed in the US. 

Okie Dokie Artichokie is such a cute name for this lip gloss but it's not related to the actual color of the product.  The color in the pan is a bit difficult to photograph depending on the lighting.  Indoors, it comes out as coral as shown below. 

With outdoor lighting, it is a much softer peachy pink which is closer to the actual color of the product.

This color swatches as a peachy pink with slight shimmer.

The lipgloss glides on smoothly and effortlessly on the lips.  I used a lip brush to apply instead of my fingers to avoid contaminating the product for hygienic reasons.  This color will be flattering for all skin tone to add a nice soft glow to the lips.  It is not sticky and does not have any smell when applied. 

Overall, I really like NYX Lip Lacquer Pot for the affordability and moisturizing feel.  It does not dry out my lips and has a good 4-5 hours wear time if I don't eat greasy food.  I love how I can just apply this on and go without feeling like I have something on my lips.  Okie Dokie Artichokie warms up the lip with a peachy pink color and makes them look moist, not overly glossy unlike some lipglosses. Do note that not all of the colors are as dark or pigmented as Okie Dokie Artichokie with the exception of Simply Red and Ultra Violet.  If you are looking for opaque/more pigmented colors, those will be your choices.  The other colors offered by NYX are lighter with shimmer to add a simple glossy look to the lips.

What's your favorite lipgloss?  Have you tried NYX Lip Lacquer Pots?

Very pretty color! I like it! =] However, I'm not a big fan of pots just bc I have to stick my fingers in them.
