in honor of makeup monday, i have a little review for you. several months ago i saw a gorgeous photo on pinterest of a woman wearing a matte lip color. the color was a vampy deep cherry but (as per usual) there was no link to where the product could be found. since then i’ve been searching wildly and last friday my mission was complete! at ulta i found that nyx makes a lip cream that goes on matte and feels as light as a feather. the selection of colors is vast- transcending through the seasons, which is good because now that it’s spring i’m not exactly looking to find that deep cherry. i opted for a color called london thinking it would be a cool nude. i was wrong (surprise). it was just a shade or two darker and i couldn’t tell if i loved it or hated it, until my friend joelle pointed out that it was very angelina jolie. ahh that girl knows how to speak straight to my soul. relief washed over me as i realized that it was, in fact, a very early 2000s angelina jolie color. SOLD. i don’t trust nyx to be long lasting, but this product has surprised me. so in a nutshell- good colors, lightweight, long lasting. everything you ever wanted right?
