Nyx Macaron Lippies. I Love Them.

The internets have been aflutter lately over wild lipsticks. Amanda has posted not one, but two wacky lipstick hauls (how out of character!) in last last month or so. I have always had a soft spot for weird colors, so it was a no-brainer when Nyx released the Macaron Lippies. Of course I had to buy them.

This post can be found at!

I picked up five (so far) during Ulta's buy one/get one half off sale, right after my birthday. Their shipping is ridiculous, but it was free and I used a giftcard, so I guess I can't complain much. I wanted to get Pistachio as well, but that bastard is out-of-stock. I may need to stalk Nyx's website for a while to get my hands on it.

L to R: black sesame, blue velvet, lavender, violet, chambord
I love these lipsticks. They are everything I wanted my Wet'n'Wild Halloween lipstick back in 1997 to be. Creamy, pigmented, and easy to wear. The only weird thing is that the bullets don't feel especially stable. I had trouble with them winding themselves back down when I tried to apply them, and they feel like they would snap right off if you extended them all the way.

The colors are wonderful and vivid. Violet reminded me of a neon version of MAC Heroine, but somehow packing less of a punch. If you love purple, but found Heroine to be a bit might need Violet. My kids are obsessed with Lavender. Strangely, my youngest actually looks good in it. Maybe in twelve years I can buy her a pale lavender of her very own (these are mine, dammit). I wish Blue Velvet was a little deeper, and I wish I was brave enough for Black Sesame. But I will definitely be trying to make these non-special occasion lipsticks.

I named this picture wrong...



  1. I got blue velvet, violet, and chambord and I love them! You look great in the black, oddly enough my friends all like the blue on me the most.

    1. my husband *hates* the black...and the blues/grays. I think that Violet is going to be in heavy rotation for me. I love it.

    2. That violet looks great on you

    3. <3 thanks! I think purple is becoming my spirit color.
