Try It Tuesday: NYX Whipped Lip & Cheek Suffle




Let's be honest, I'm a sucker for a lip product. The will power I have to resist buying a new product daily is a struggle. 

But since I work at Ulta, I'm constantly shown new (to me) lip products and I usually pass up since I just have so much. But my friend asked me if this particular NYX lippy was a matte finish or not. We were trying to help a customer and in the process I ended up swatching some on the back of my hand. And then the next day I decided to get the shade Berry Tea for myself!

Before I get too much into the product, let's talk packaging! They're in cute little bottles with a long cap and the applicator is a doe-foot applicator that is shaped more like a water-drop to fit the lips better (I assume).
As for the product itself, it's supposed to be a matte finish. I agree that it ends up being matte, but it takes a long time. Blending the souffle with your lips helps speed it up, but I think it's more of a creamy matte. It feels like a dream and the color payoff lasts a while, so I'm not complaining too much! I usually hate drying matte lippys anyway, so I appreciate it even more. So just be warned...

Sidenote: remember when I said I ended up swatching it at work? Well the swatch did not move one bit the entire shift. Like not one bit! And it was just as creamy! Definitely worth the 6 bucks if you ask me.

Me oh my am I determined to get my lip products under control. It's basically me decluttering at this point rather than actually using, but these lip products I've had for a while, so I don't feel as bad. Also, to sum up the lip products, unless they stand out to me as not wearing well (fading unevenly, clumping oddly, etc), or the color doesn't suit me, I generally love/make the color work. 
I've also used up quite a few skin care products that I wasn't expecting to finish.
Things I've Used Up:
Joico Color Infuse Red Shampoo: I bloody love this stuff. I claim this is the thing that makes my hair stay red as long as it does. Not only does it have color-lasting powers, but it cleans your hair and actually makes it feel clean. Huge plus in my book. I'm still undecided how long I want to keep my red hair, but if I ever decide to keep it, or go back to red, this is the first thing I'm gonna pick up.
Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream: This was a sample that I foun…

As my stash somehow is larger than ever, despite my makeup ban efforts, I still only buy when I get those Ulta "free gift with any purchase" emails that sucker me in each time. I'm going to promise myself that unless I need a spare necessary product that I'm nearly out of, when I get those emails, I'll stick to racking up my lip balm collection.
What I've used up over the past month: Joico Color Extend Shampoo: At first, I didn't mind this shampoo. But after the glaze on my hair washed out, I started to hate this shampoo. It just doesn't feel like my hair is clean at the roots. Apparently this is a common problem with color friendly shampoo, so I'm not mad about it, but now that it's done, I'm excited to try other shampoos that will make my hair feel like I got it done at the salon after each wash. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Shampoo (Sample): OH EM GEE. My hair finally felt like my hair again. I see people buy any and all Living Proof prod…

#ProjectPan June 2017

This month has been fairly tame with finishing things. I'm finding that I'm finally reaching the end of some of my powders and foundations. I'm also doing great with decluttering the lip collection. There's also a bit of face things in there, so hopefully a little something for everyone. 
Products I've Used Up: Dermalogica Pre-Cleanse (30 mL): This is truly life changing. Well, not really, but it took off my makeup exceptionally well and I would happily repurchase this again.  Charlotte Tilbury Magic Night Cream (1.5 mL): I liked how it made my skin feel, but if you over do it, it can still feel tacky in the morning, which wasn't fun. I'm gonna stick with my samples of serums and creams for now.  Maybelline Dream Pure BB: I'm not too fussed with foundations, so I got on with this fairly well. It's a light coverage, but with the right brush, it could be a medium coverage. It lasts a good while. My only complaint is that towards the end, it separated a bi…
