I was so excited when I found out Nyx Cosmetics was coming out with a line of non-traditionally colored lipsticks. Finally some different colors from an affordable brand! Once I saw they were available to order online I made sure to pick up a few. Most of them are currently sold out on the Nyx website but they'll probably be getting more in. Some might be available at Ulta stores too.
These lipsticks retail for $6 a piece. They're incredibly creamy and comfortable to wear. I found most applied with few coats. Pistachio required the most coats to be opaque and Blue Velvet & Violet required the least. Wear time is about average but if you eat or drink you'll probably have to reapply.

I swatched the colors I bought (which are half of the collection) with very quick applications so please don't judge them too harshly. Also I really don't have the lips for lipstick swatches, but whatever. They're what I have.
(For swatches of the other colors and on prettier lips, check out Batalash Beauty.)

I really don't know when I'll wear blue or mint green lipstick, but I wanted them! Maybe over the summer I'll figure out an outfit to make them work. They're so different though. I love it! The more I see "weird" lip colors, the more normal they look and I'm pretty sure that'd be the case for most people. I'm looking forward to the day when more people wear these non-traditional lipsticks. With drug store makeup companies finally selling colors like these, that day could be just over the horizon.
Overall these are comfortable lipsticks in very fun colors. Some shades (Pistachio & Lavender) need a few coats, but it's worth it for the unique colors.
