I got four colors, two light shades and two deep. I chose Nude Pink, Peek a Boo Natural, Plum, and Prune. Sorry for the photo quality btw, getting good pictures of my lips is really hard. As for the formula, these meet most of my criteria. These are soft but not slippery, the color payoff is great, and they definitely help lipstick to stay in place. However unlike my MAC lip pencils these will not last through a meal, which might be a problem for some people. For me... it's not a huge deal. Anyway let's move on to the colors!
L: Bare Lips R: Nude Pink. I think this is a super wareable shade on many skin tones. Its a slightly warm light pink. It has enough color to not have that 'dead' nude lip look while staying neutral and light. This is about half a shade lighter than my natural lip color. I definitely see myself reaching for this color when I'm doing a darker eye look.
L: Bare Lips R: Peek a Boo Natural. This shade is darker than Nude pink. This one is about half a shade darker then my natural lip. It leans a little brown, I think it wouldn't be the most flattering shade on cooler complexions. On me it's a good MLBB type shade, and is quite similar to one of my favorite neutral lipsticks MAC Mocha.
L: Bare Lips R: Plum. Now we're getting deeper! This is more a plum/berry in my opinion. It's pretty balanced between red a purple tones. I think is sort of classic deep berry that's great for winter, must have for me.
I'm really enjoying all of these, NYX has done it again! You can get these online or at Ulta for $3.50USD
