NYX lipsticks - Tea Rose & Thalia - neutral perfection

Northwood Pharmacy in Santry will be my financial undoing.  They have the best stocked makeup stands with brands like Wet n Wild, NYX, Physician's Formula and lots more.  All there to tempt me when I don't need to be tempted.  A recent meander while killing time meant that I had a grand browse around and thankfully only came out with two products.  Two lipsticks to be exact and I didn't need either of them.  But sure it was for the blog and all...

Tea Rose and Thalia from budget brand NYX spoke to me as only a neutral lipstick can and they said "Hey girl hey!  You know you need us so accept the fact that we're comin' home with you girlfriend" and so I did what the lipsticks said.  Say hi to the ladies.


There's no reason whatsoever why I picked up these two neutrals and with the back of my hand covered in swatches, they were the two that stood out.  And for the purpose of re-inactment, here are some back of hand swatches.


But it's all about the lips though innit?  And if the hand swatches weren't enough to make me happy with my purchases, first application on the lips sealed the deal.  Well it's not like I could've brought them back but you know what I mean?  I did good.


Tea Rose


Tea Rose is a beautiful dusty pinky corally shade that instantly lifts my whole complexion.  It's a gorgeous shade for spring and the creamy formulation of these two shades is something else.  I don't have to worry about my already dry lips drying out even more as these are so comfortable to wear.  I now want to start wearing bronzy shimmery eyes with Tea Rose to really amp things up.

Thalia


Thalia is a mauve lip lover's dream.  On the back of my hand it looked more on the dusty pink end of things but on the lips, it's definitely more neutral with purple undertones.  It's a more sophisticated shade than Tea Rose and one that I'll be wearing with a smokey eye because sometimes a nude lip is too harsh and I need something else.  Check me out with mauve lips!

These two shades were €5.49 and I want more of them now.  The formula is absolutely gorgeous, nice and creamy and staying power is pretty decent if you're not eating or drinking.  They're really pigmented and is it wrong that I want to try some of NYX's lipliners now as well?

What NYX lippies do I need to try next folks because I'm going to need more of these babies!
