This weekend my brother asked me to drive him up North to a different mall school shopping, so Saturday we were out! I was racing up the parkway and although I told myself I wasn't going to spend $$$ that never happens! I go about my business and head in and out of stores, I swear idk what is wrong with me lately I can't find anything I like. Well after H&M I was over the whole shopping thing but than a Lightbulb went off in my head! I remembered that many moons ago when I was getting into make-up there was a little beauty supply store that sold NYX dirt cheap. I see it and walk in and low and behold NYX-a-palooza up in that place! I was staring in awe at the lipstick display. I didn't know wtf to do with myself. After 45 minutes this is what I ended up getting ....
6 NYX round lipsticks at $1.99 a piece & 2 blushes at $4 YUP YUP! whoop whoop! Go ME! cheaper than online, no shipping charges or wait time, I'm on it!
I have tried the blushes in the past and I was happy with them. So the two that I got have been on my radar for a while for various reasons. I didn't purchase them before because I was finding them at place for like $8. Um NO! that's a lot IMO for a drugstore blush. With my pro discount I can get a MAC blush for the same price. (hence why I don't bother with a lot of drugstore products)
Taupe & Peach Blush
I purchased taupe because its supposedly a dupe for my beloved Emote blush & Peach because i saw it on Kim Kardashian months ago and loved the blush before i knew what it was.

Emote, Taupe, Peach
Its not an exact dupe as Taupe is way cooler than Emote. I'll have to see how it wears but I do like the soft texture of NYX blushes. They blend nicely but if you over blend its gone, so I suggest maybe layering it over a cream blush to make it pop and last.
NYX Round lipsticks
As much as I'd heard about these all over youtube & blogger no store near me had them, hence why when I found them I was dumbfound LOL I couldn't remember which ones to get...
Paris -- A bright bubblegum pink
Louisiana -- A Watermelon Pink
Strawberry Milk -- A milky pink
Pumpkin Pie -- A Peach w/ slight pink iridescence
Indian Pink -- A coral with pink sheen
Orange Soda -- A creamy orange
The lipsticks went on really smooth, almost melting into the skin. The formula seems to me like it is a cross between MAC creamsheens & glaze. For the price they are extremely good. I wore pumpkin pie yesterday for dinner and it didn't last thru pasta but none of my lipsticks do.

Possible dupes ??? (as suggested by other bloggers)
Many blogs said strawberry milk was a dupe for gaga and such pale pink colors but I didn't find that to be true. Strawberry Milk is lighter and less cool than those.
MAC Saint Germain, MAC Viva Glam Gaga, NYX Strawberry Milk
Louisiana is not a hot pink by any means its more of a watermelon pink
MAC Hollywood Nights, NYX Louisiana
NYX Orange soda is too light to be a dupe for Peachstock although they are in the same color family.
NYX orange soda, MAC Peachstock
Paris is supposed to be a dupe for MAC pink nouveau but i don't own it so i can't compare sorry
Do any of you own NYX round lipsticks??? if so what are some of your favorites???
