As promised, here's my review for the NYX Cosmetic Wicked Lippie Collection. I have to admit at first I was skeptical about purchasing any of these lipsticks because the brand website made them appear dark, bold and way too overpowering for daily wear. But after seeing an online swatch of the actual product I was hooked. More specifically with these five shades above, they are GORGEOUS. And I received another free lip liner as well as 25% off so boooyah! You need to buy these lippies like yesterday. Seriously though...
Take a walk on the wicked side with our jewel-toned lippies available in 12 shimmering shades. Velvety smooth with a dazzling metallic finish, these richly pigmented lipsticks will leave your lips with the ultimate spellbinding look. A set of jewel-toned, metallic lipsticks available in 12 shades. Gives lips a medium to full coverage edgy pop of color with an enchanting metallic finish. These lipsticks come in a variety of stunning shades that instantly add drama to any look. Apply lipstick directly onto lips or use a lip brush for precision along the lip line.

Formula: Surprisingly the formula is on the semi-sheer side, they have a fantastic opaqueness and are not flat out thick solid shades which makes them very modern and sophisticated bold colors. Anyone can wear them. I promise. The pigments are rich, glossy, with a metallic finish. The colors are buildable. I suggest you apply a primer and liner first because they are super creamy and sheer so the primer will help the pigments stick and will help you make the colors appear as subtle or deep shaded as you like. Cold Hearted is a color I thought I'd never buy ever. In fact it's a gorgeous wearable granite that isn't as dark as it appears and granite is an on trend shade in the beauty world right now. Power is my favorite out of all of them, a beautiful glossy deep rose while Stone Cold is an outrageous snow goddess silver! Mischievous is a very pale gold that needs too be applied with a heavy hand for it to show up. A neat tip: try the silver and gold as layering shades on top of darker lipsticks for superb drama. Envy has more of a purple shift than I would have liked but it's still beautiful. And wicked lippies are perfect for your upcoming holiday looks. Are you wicked? Stay Beautiful! XOXO
