NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault II Lip Swatches ♡

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault II

Two weeks ago I posted a full lip swatches video of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault II on YouTube and I cannot believe that I have received so many likes and so many views on that video; I just want to quickly shoutout to everyone who has watched that video and gave it a thumb up, thank you so much for your support, I really appreciate it. 

Tonight I am sharing with you arm swatches, lip swatches and some of my thoughts on the quality of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault II, I believe this is a 2017 released and the set includes a total of 36 mini-sized SMLC with 24 being their best-selling shades and 8 brand new colours.

I am missing the colour "Madrid" and I think I must have misplaced it after I filmed that lip swatches video because I can't find it anywhere. Boo-hoo ~

I want to share with you my thoughts on the quality of this set before I share with you all the swatches, because I feel like I have a lot to say. The NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault II is an overall great set to try if you are new to the NYX SMLCs, but I feel like the quality of the set is SO MUCH DIFFERENT to the full-sized ones.

THE FULL-SIZED NYX SMLC - Milan is my all time favourites and I have re-purchased it many many times! I also have Tokyo, Istanbul, Copenhagen and Transylvania in the full-sized tube and I absolute love its' formula. I love the mousey texture, it's creamy, it's full of pigmentation, it smells yummy, it's long wearing, it's matte, but not completely and it wears comfortably for as long as you have it on. If I can only use one drugstore lip product for the rest of my life, it would definitely be the NYX SMLC and that's how much I love this product.

THE MINI-SIZED NYX SMLC - As I mentioned earlier, the NYX SMLC Vault II is a great set to try out if you are new to this product, all the colours included are gorgeous, but the quality is crap. I feel like a lot of the colours applies uneven, some of them feels like its dried out inside the tube, only a few applies with a creamy texture, but a lot them has no pigmentation.

ColourPop Lunch Money Super Shock Highlighter ♡ Review + Swatches

ColourPop Super Shock Highlighter Lunch Money

This highlighter has been sitting in my draft for literally six months now, I have recently just started using it again and I almost forgot how beautiful this highlighter is. This is ColourPop Super Shock Highlighter in Lunch Money and I love it as much as its' name.

I believe Lunch Money was one of the first release of ColourPop's Super Shock Highlighter, please correct me if I am wrong. Lunch Money is described as a "soft light gold" and it shows up on my skin as a light beige with frosted sheen. I am used to applying Super Shock Highlighter with my fingers as the colour applies more opaque and I sometimes use with a fan brush to sheer out the pigmentation, I find that Lunch Money has that subtle glow that is wearable when applied either way.

The texture and formula of the Super Shock Highlighter is pretty much the same, I don't find them perform differently on different colours, so I may be repeating myself when I review these products. I love that the texture is soft to touch, it is smooth upon application, it has a full pigmentation that delivers the most beautiful luminous glow, I find that a little goes a long way and a little pot like this last me ages.

As you know, I have oily skin and I get especially oily on my T-zone and my cheek during lunch time (usually 5-6 hours after application), when I check myself in the mirror, Lunch Money isn't as glowing as when I first applied, but it is still showing and I like that it doesn't emphasise my pores.

The above photo was taken while I was getting ready for work at 7.30 am, in this photo I am wearing Lunch Money and it was applied with my fingers. Just to let you guys know that my skin was smoothed out in this photo, just like when I do my lips swatches and the main purpose of me smoothing out my skin is to really just to focus on the products I am showing and what the shades really look like on my skin. I do have some imperfections and my skin is not flawless.
