nyx lipstick swatches.wmv

Happy Friday y'all!

So the other day this song I like popped into my head, and I just had to listen to it on youtube! Only problem is I don't know the title or artist, but I know it's a current song on a top radio station.

So I g-chat my gf and ask her, "Hey do you know this song.. the lyrics are, 'I've waited, I've waited'" ... Me: "And there's another line that goes 'I've waited all my life'" .... (realizing that I'm being super vague and unhelpful) As I'm trying to google these lyrics, both of us are struggling to figure it out, and all the while the song is blaring in my head. I'm coming up with search results of Ryan Cabrera's song "True", which is totally NOT the song. And there are thousands of songs out there with lyrics like "I've waited all my life" haha.. go figure.

And then FINALLY, I'm like, "OMG! It's the song from The City! I can find it!" It's the Kevin Rudolph song with a bunch of ghetto rappers (ew).

Turns out he's singing, "I've made it" and not "Ive waited". LOL.

Anyways, moving on.

The title of this post is not a lie!

Here's a 1-2 min video on my NYX lipsticks. I always find it helpful when I'm googling images of lip colors to see it on the lips (obviously), and also against the rest of the face so that I'll know which shades go well with which skin tone.

My lips are pretty pigmented red... I didn't use any lip concealers ~ all l/s were applied straight onto my lips. Also show the l/s on a white paper towel LOL. Well I didn't want to swatch them on my arm!

In order:

[starting with round l/s]
*Circe (good to combine w/another l/s)
*Orange Soda (love!)
*Pumpkin Pie (hmm.. it's mehhh)
*Summer Love (loooove it! Thanks to my sister for recommending)
*Harmonica (hmmm..having trouble thinking of when this l/s would be appropriate...)
*Strawberry Milk (cheaper alternative to Heiress. Very nice milky finish)

[black label l/s]
*Heiress (REALLY easy to apply. It's practically foolproof! Feels similar to MAC Gaga)
*India (fav l/s. It's like milky pinky peachy)


  1. gorgeous lippies and swatches, dear! i really like heiress on you :) it's a perfect shade

  2. Thanks for the swatches! Heiress and India are so pretty! And of course Orange Soda is like my faaav hehe. I've been wanting to try Pumpkin Pie and Strawberry milk!

  15. hahha sophia ur video is so cute....all the lip colors are nice. love the lashes and the the contacts too. is it the same contacts i've seen u in or are they new?

  16. ^PIIIING finally! HAHAHA. Yes same blue contacts.. they don't look so blue from far away huh? I actually kinda like that they don't look so blue, but just kinda makes the eyes look different and not so ordinary..

  17. Cute video Sophia : ) I REALLY like India, and I saw afterwards its your fave too. Do you buy it online or are you able to find it in those asian marts? I don't want to pay shipping

    PS - Ditto on the snap button ... I hate scratching my nails up trying to pee after getting a manicure. Which jeans did you get on hold? TR/Sevens/Jbrand? lol! I hope they fit you...I know you have longer legs than me! And make sure they give you both discounts ... one SA wouldn't give me the extra 20, grr. Can't wait to pick mine up on Thurs. : )

  18. you are SO right, crest whitening strips DO help! It's one of the few things I tried and noticed results right away! An you look cute when you smile awwwww <3 hope you're having a great long weekend!
