Swatch - NYX Lipgloss - Smokey Look

I wasn't planning on doing a post today, as I usually take Sunday's off, but I wanted to share a lipgloss that has become a serious staple product for me over the past few weeks.

I've blogged about NYX cosmetics before with nothing to write but positive things. NYX is a line of makeup that carries professional quality cosmetics at super affordable prices. NYX isn't all that easy to find, as it is only sold at ULTA stores and online at NYXcosmetics.com or cherryculture.com. Sometimes you can spot them at Perfumania stores or outlet malls, but overall, they're quite a rare catch offline.

I have wanted NYX lipgloss in "Smokey Look" but had found it so hard to find at the time that I was looking for it. That moment had been housing many great sales online so most of the online stores were sold out of it, and it's always sold out at the ULTA store by me. I was lucky enough to be spoiled with one by a sweet friend, Nee from Simply Nee. (Her blog is private so we can't all go over and stalk her).



Smokey Look comes out to be this perfect nude pink with very little shimmer and super shine. The color is perfect for both pigmented and pale lips. It's not a doll pink, but more of a muted nude. It's good enough to wear over lipstick or even alone, it definitly has enough color payoff to pull off a gorgeous nude pink lip on it's own.





NYX lipglosses also have a significant scent to them. I happen to love the smell, it gives off the scent of raspberries in my opinion, but others may seem to find it irritating. Everyone has different preferences when it comes to their cosmetics.

Smokey Look is the perfect name for this color! What other color would look more perfect paired up with a smokey eye!

Pricing: This lipgloss runs around $3 and is probably no more than $5. I would say the cheapest place to purchase it would be from CherryCulture.com. They always have amazing deals and free shipping offers.

  1. I love your lip reviews! Your lips are so perfect. LIP MODEL! :P Not to mention MODEL in general <3 <3 <3

    I didn't know they carried NYX at Ulta! How about that, I've always found mine at random Outlet centers, and stores called Perfumania, or random stores like that sell discounted perfume, or cosmetics. It's really weird, but I think NYX is starting to pop up randomly all over. It's definitely hard to pin point where to find them. I did pick up a few lip glosses the last time I do really like their quality & smell! ^_^

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend! I definitely want to be more like you and take breaks on the weekends, especially Sunday. <3

  8. Love this color! It actually reminds me of my NYX lipgloss in 'Perfect', which I wear all the time! And for such a cheap price, you can't beat it!

  9. This is definitly not the last NYX lipgloss I will own...they are so amazing, I need ALL of them! I also LOVE the Round girls lipgloss from NYX. I have Pinky Natural and Baby Pink...theyre both just so amazing in quality. I want Perfect so bad! ahh...*goes to buy more online* hahaha

    I use a Canon SD 1100IS. I love Canon point and shoots...I dont think anything compares to their quality. I'm asking for a newer version or a better Canon for Christmas, because the one I have is great since its so small, but there are better Canons. I have been so lazy, but I've been promising a post on how I take my photos. I will get to it!
