The good stuff:
- Relatively inexpensive
- Smooth and moisturizing NOT sticky
- Glides on effortlessly
- Doesn't dry out my lips
- Rich, pigmented shades
- Pretty long-lasting
- Cruelty free
- I doubt I'll ever find them for 99 cents again! :(
- Did settle into my lip lines a bit.
My take: The Pecan Pie shade does this LOVELY nude lip for me... I just LOVE it :D And it goes well with my hair color now lol. Like I mentioned all the good points, I barely have anything bad to say about their lipstick besides that it did settle into my lip lines after a few hours and didn't last all day, but a relatively long time without becoming dry. The color is so rich that I use my Avon rollerball gloss over it to tone it down a bit... makes it the perfect shade. This lipstick is definitely worth it - if only NYX's swatches were more accurate!
