Color Cocktailing

 

Color Cocktailing has been on my mind a lot lately plus it is so much fun to customize my own colors. If you have been following me for a while now, you’d know I have been experimenting it quite often.

Today am here to show you one of my favorites from such color mixing.

 

Color Cocktailing | Lakme Burgundy Lush + NYX Embellishment

Color Cocktailing

For this, I have used two colors which have the similar formula – Burgundy Lush from Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mouse Lip and Cheek color Collection and Embellishment from NYX Cosmetics Lip Lingerie Collection.

While the formula of these two is same, they are matte; both the colors have totally different tones!

Burgundy Lush is a dark color with the warm undertone, while Embellishment is the soft color with cool undertone; which when combined gave a soft, muted yet lush color which is perfect for everyday wear.

I have a real thing for matte lip colors at the moment and I totally love NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Creams and Lip Lingerie Collection as well as Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Colors. Each of these collections has different shades which make this all the more fun in the stocking. Plus, they work harmoniously well when mixed.

All this and I got no complaints of feathering and/or blotching.

Now the big plus, this color cocktail stayed on me for a long time and I am not complaining. I find this particular color combination very oddly comforting. It is a pretty sexy color and yet very sweet and soft color on lips. It has that warmth but enough cool undertone to be appropriate for any occasion.

This is definitely my personal favorite and I can’t wait to see what else gets into my *Love-it* list.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Prague is another shade that I am obsessed with. It is a beautiful color that straddles the line between pink and purple. It’s a soft and muted color which makes it all the more appealing and pleasant to the eye. If you have been looking for a purple color to try out and wasn’t sure what to pick, this can be a great starter. It’s not much into the face and works great as a daytime color too.

 

Here are the swatches of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Prague –

Here’s what it claims –

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Collection has 12 statement-making shades. The velvety smooth Soft Matte Lip Cream delivers a burst of creamy color and sets to a stunning matte finish. Surprisingly durable, lightweight and delightfully creamy, it’s no wonder that this sweetly scented formula is a NYX fan favorite.

 

Price – 600

Buy – Nykaa

 

Here’s what I love about this color –

  1. It is a muted pink-purple color that suits any skin tone
  2. Its creamy formula glides smoothly over the lips
  3. It’s light-weight and doesn’t dry out the lips
  4. It applies creamy and settles into a matte finish
  5. It stays put for very long time (in my case till I eat)
  6. It has sweet scent
  7. It doesn’t accentuate fine lines
  8. It doesn’t transfer

 

There is nothing about this shade that I don’t love. In fact, I am always excited that I can mix and match the colors (call it color cocktailing) to get my own custom color to suit my mood. And the result is always as stunning as ever!

That said, NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams have the best formula and colors till date. Plus they are not as expensive as the other higher end brands that deliver similar results.

And in general, one of the best things about this collection is the formula. It feels amazing on lips, glides on smoothly and doesn’t leave the lips dry. It is a creamy formula with a great color payoff which settles into a velvety matte finish. It doesn’t settle in lines and it stays on all day and is transfer proof. This is definitely better than the most expensive lip creams and stains.

NYX | Lip Lingerie Embellishment + Soft Matte Lip Cream Seoul

Beauty

My lip color of choice right now is any muted tone shade. If you have seen my Instagram posts lately, most of my lip colors tend to deviate towards the same – hints of brown, nude and even ashy tones for that matter.

Ever since I laid my eyes on NYX Lip Lingerie in Embellishment, I have been on the hunt and even experiment with various lip colors to make my own shades. And this one, in particular, came out very well! I have been asked constantly as what I wore in the following picture which I posted on Instagram recently, so I decided I would do a little post and let you know.

NYX Lip Lingerie in Embellishment + Soft Matte Lip Cream in Seoul

My recent NYX haul from the US got me some matte colors and among them, Soft Matte Lip Cream in Seoul and Lip Lingerie in Embellishment are the ones I loved most.

Seoul is a pretty peppy color all by itself but since there’s change in the season, I decided to tweak my lip colors a bit to suit the monsoon time.

Here, I used Seoul all over my lips and dabbed Embellishment generously in the center of the lips and blended it good with my fingertips. This actually gave the peppy Seoul a more of ashy tone which I found super pretty!

Embellishment as alone washed me off and it didn’t really go well with brown lip colors either. So I picked a peppy color and tried the Embellishment and it works like a charm.

The final result is a beautiful taupe-ish grey with strong undertones of Purple-pink which looks fabulous in person.

Since both are matte, I assumed they would feather away and/or settle in the fine lines making it non-wearable for all day sort, but luckily nothing such happened. It survived a full course meal and also a cold coffee prior to that. No touch-ups needed whatsoever for strong 4-5 hours which for me is a pretty decent time.

However using a good lip scrub and prepping the lips with a moisturizing lip balm showed better results.

Overall, this is my favorite lip color at the moment. Though it’s dark and has undertones of pink, it perfectly suits the monsoon time because of the ashy tone of Embellishment to the lip color.

NYX Lip Cream Stockholm + ColorBar Lip Pencil Chocolate Brown

NYX Lip Creams are ruling my mind at the moment and despite my NYX Lip Creams and Lipsticks haul from US, am eagerly waiting to get my hands on some more NYX products tomorrow. Yes!! NYX is finally in India and their collection is available on Nykaa.

Coming back, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm is the one that I won on twitter giveaway hosted my NYX Cosmetics India. I was one of the lucky 10 who was sent a product from them.

 

NYX Lip Cream Stockholm + ColorBar Lip Pencil Chocolate Brown

At first impression, NYX Lip Cream in Stockholm is a pretty natural color – a quite light pink. As is, this color kind of washed me off and looks paleBut if you have pigmented lips like mine, it’s a color that washes you off completely. However using a primer and/or lip pencil to use as base color helps a lot!

As for me, I used ColorBar Chocolate Brown which is a rich chocolate-y brown shade as base color. Since it’s intense, creamy and pretty forgiving on my chapped lips, it worked well with the NYX Lip Cream. These together didn’t accentuate the fine lines and/or settle in them which makes this combination as one of my favorites ever.

Here’s how it looks –

I chose ColorBar Lip Pencil in Chocolate Brown as the base color as I wanted to have a darker shade than the original Stockholm shade. And since the summer has almost passed and monsoon and colder months are ahead, this shade in combination would be simply fabulous.

However, if you are more into *barely there* and *natural pink* then NYX Lip Cream in Stockholm as is just made for you!

Overall, am totally obsessed with this NYX Lip Cream as I love how gorgeous it looks when paired with a dark brown pencil. And the formula itself is pretty long lasting and flawless. This non-drying and creamy formula is far better than other liquid lipsticks available at the moment.
