First Haul from NYX Canada

I got my first online order from NYX Canada. Very impressed with the service as I placed my order last Thursday night and got my order today(Monday) on Family Day. Only 2 business days. Very happy with the fast service and the parcel was well-packed.

Tinted Brow Mascara
Micro Brow Pencil
3C Concealer Palette
Soft Matte Lip Cream in Cannes
Liquid Lingerie in Ruffle Trim
Liquid Lingerie in Bedtime Flirt
Liquid Suede in Soft Spoken

NYX Canada website offers free shipping with orders over CAD $45. As it was my first time order, I used the promo code WELCOME25 to get 25% off.

My Shoppers Drug Mart hasn't started carrying the lingerie lipsticks yet so I am happy NYX website has restocked on these new releases. 

Can you tell that I am obsessed with nude lipsticks? I have been waiting for a while to get the Soft Matte Lip Cream in Cannes. For all the Rexall and Target stores(before they closed), the shade seemed to be out of stock all the time.

I got the Liquid Sued in Tea & Cookies last week and I wasn't a big fan of the shade or formula. See my previous post for my thoughts. But I decided to get another shade and am I ever glad I picked up Soft Spoken. The formula is very different from Tea & Cookies. It is smooth to apply and not patchy nor streaky at all.

I have the two versions of Kat Von D Lolita(1st & 2nd versions) and the above swatch is from the second version. I can honestly say the NYX soft spoken is a close dupe to it, in terms of shade. Formula-wise, the Kat Von D is still much easier to apply and the lasting power is longer. But if you are looking to get a drugstore dupe of the popular Kat Von D Lolita, Soft Spoken is definitely a comparable dupe.

NYX liquid suede in Soft Spoken on me

I haven't had a chance to test out the lingerie liquid lipsticks yet. But it seems to have a more matte finish. It does have a subtle scent to it. Not vanilla or pleasant cup cake scent, It is hard to pin point the scent but it is between a dessert and a chemical scent. Hopefully the scent would not linger on. Will follow up with reviews after I have tested them out.
