|L to R: SMLC01 Amsterdam, SMLC03 Tokyo, SMLC10 Monte Carlo|
Minimalist packaging is the key here. A black satin top on the doe-foot wand with a sleek tube showing the color of the product. The tube color isn't an exact match to the product itself however. On the tube is the NYX logo, name of the product and a little blurb about the product. "Its not lipstick nor is it gloss. Its like nothing you've experienced. Its lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte." On the bottom is a black sticker that tells you the shade, number (which is very important here!) and product amount.
|Oh how true this is.|
It has a vanilla frosting-like smell, definitely not overpowering but a bit unpleasant and it goes away. Its only there if you smell the tube, so maybe you should give it a whiff? I promise, it doesn't have a scent on the lips so if you're sensitive to scent, you should be okay with this.
|Sorry its a bit blurred! Still readable though. Nail varnish is Illamasqua Raindrops|
|I do my best to wipe off excess product on this interior|
|No Flash. L to R: Amsterdam, Tokyo, Monte Carlo. Monte Carlo looks odd here.|
|Flash. MUCH BETTER! Same order as above!|
|Bare lips, just lip balm (the lip balm prevented these from going matte)|
|Tokyo (Hello, Corpse!)|
|Monte Carlo (slightly darker in real life)|
|Amsterdam (still not loving it)|
Every time I go to Ze Boyfriend's house, I seem to get distracted! Wish he could have taken these lip swatch photos for me, with better lighting and maybe flash.
