I stopped at my beauty supply store to get a concealer that would last me through this semester, a setting powder for when I *try* to highlight, and some lashes. Clearly, as the title suggests, I didn’t get the lashes. Why? I saw that they started carrying NYX. I’ve been looking for a nude brown lip colour for a while, and decided that when I got the chance, I would get “Maison” from the NYX Matte Lipstick collection. Clearly also from the title, I didn’t get that either. Why? I don’t know haha. I guess in my head I know I don’t wear lipsticks as often as I buy them, so I’d be more likely to wear one of these since I do wear my Soft Matte Lip Creams and Butter Glosses by NYX frequently.
Anywhere, here are some pictures:
Ruby Kisses HD Set n Forget Setting Powder in “Earth”
* I figured this could set the Fawn LA Girl Pro Concealer nicely, even though this has more of an orange undertone, and the concealer has a strong yellow undertone *
Ruby Kisses 3D Face Creator in “Level 12”
I’ve used these in about 4 other “levels”, and all of them have worked well. I think this is my second time purchasing this one, only because the lighter shade matches me a bit better since it’s not as orange based as some of the other shades. The darker one here should work nicely for a natural contour (if I can get that right).
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in “Abu Dhabi”
I have 2 other ones of these, but they’re both pink shades. This is pink as well, but it comes off as more of a brown based pink so it should be really good to use as a nude.
