NYX Pin Up Pout Lipsticks

NYX pin up pout lipstick review and swatches

NYX is a total rockstar when it comes to high quality products at a drugstore price point, so when any NYX product lands on my desk my expectations are already pretty high. However, these blew me out of the water. Keep reading for swatches and to see just why I love these new lip sticks so much!

The NYX Pin Up Pout lipstick comes in 24 beautiful shades. This impressive range includes a collection of neutral nudes, oranges, reds, browns, deep vampy shades and bold pinks. There really is something for everybody. 

The formula is creamy and pigmented, with a not too shiny satin finish. They aren't drying, and feel good on my lips. I feel like these are the perfect lipsticks to keep in your purse or at your desk at work. They have a solid wear time but are easy to re-apply when you need a touch up. Retailing at the ~$8.99 CAD price point.

I have seen other bloggers comment that many of the shades are quite similar, and while that is true, I notice that in similar shades that the undertones are different. For me the best example is "Rebel Soul" and "Almost Famous". While these two shades are so similar, "Rebel Soul" is a bit more pinky-purple where as "Almost Famous" has a bit more peach. I love wearing "Almost Famous" but almost never reach for "Rebel Soul". I am sure that there are other shades that are quite close, and that one works better for some undertones than others. 

These lipsticks are packaged in shiny black lipstick tubes with white writing on them. The packaging is okay quality, though I do find that the caps pop off sometimes. I would be careful of leaving these unattended inside your purse.
