NYX Wicked Lippies Haul and Swatches - Risque, Trickery, Mischievous



Happy Humpday! Gosh I wished it was Friday already!

I'm so excited about this haul! When I first heard that NYX released this new collection, I knew I just couldn't wait to get a few of them. My order took some time to arrive but it's here finally!
In all there are a total of 12 shades, in which most of them are unconventional colors. I know it's not going to fit everyone's taste but for the weird ones like myself, it's a breath of fresh air to get more color options that are affordable. Besides, Halloween is approaching and these would be great for creative makeup looks.

Currently, I think they are only available from the NYX website for $6.00 each.

Anyhow...I only picked out 3 shades, though I kinda wanted them all, lol. Again, self control...Well sort of not really. I guess the fact that I've collected a few OCC lip tars and MBA lipsticks in the past couple months helped satisfy my cravings so I skipped the blues and purples. Perhaps I will get a few more when they become available and on sale at Ulta. From the reviews I've read there are some inconsistencies between shades.



Risque, Trickery, Mischievous

Risque, Trickery, Mischievous


Risque is a medium dark shimmery emerald green. It looks quite frosty but it's fabulous still and I love it. It has a creamy feel but it's not slippery. It's quite pigmented and applied evenly. You do need at least a couple swipe though in order to get an even and opaque coverage. Out of the three I got, this is the one that had the best application. Be aware that it does leave behind a bruise-like stain when you remove it.







Trickery is a dark dirty shimmery olive. Quite a unique shade for lips and I knew I had to have it. It's not as golden as I expected it. Some people said it had gold shimmers but they are very subtle and almost undetectable once on the lips I must say. Formula was creamy and almost opaque. Definitely needs a few swipes to build up the color and coverage. You can't tell from afar but when looking up close, it's not as opaque as I would like. In spite of the minor flaw, I would still rock this though.









Mischievous is a medium warm shimmery gold. Just the color I wanted! However, there's a small problem. It's not opaque. It's more like a sheer to medium coverage. The good thing is that the formula is creamy on all the ones that I got. I didn't think they were either moisturizing or drying but rather comfortable on the lips.









Lastly, I got a free gift, which I thought was pretty cool. I got a lip pencil in the shade Nectar. It seems all the people who order these lippies got the same lip color pencils as well.

Nectar is a shimmery medium rose pink. It's pretty but feels a little dry. I wished it was a tiny bit more creamy.

So this concludes my haul and swatches...Let me know if you ordered any of these or if you plan on to, tell me which shades you'll get.
