I've been really into the current pink lips trend lately~
Well, okay - not as much as my favorite nude lips trend, but I ran out of my nude lipstick and I haven't been able to find a new one. So pink lips it is! Natural, naked lips are a big NO-NO.
A while ago, Cherryculture.com was having a 25% off sale on all NYX cosmetics. I took the opportunity to stock up on some of my tried & true favorites like NYX's blush, concealer, and eyeliners...as well as try out some new lipsticks!
I ordered Frosted Beige, Iced Honey (I thought one of these two might be a good replacement for my favorite, Avon's Sheer Naturale, but they weren't even close), Jupiter, Flower, and Narcissus.
I've learned my lesson about buying lipsticks online without trying them first, because I really didn't like most of them. But at $1 a pop, it wasn't that big of a deal.
However, Narcissus ended up being kinda nice when paired with my Smashbox lip gloss in Pout!

The picture doesn't even do it justice, the color is so much brighter in person. I'm just not sure what kind of eye makeup to pair with bright pink lips...I tried to keep it pale & simple. Any suggestions?
