Nicka K NK Lipstick....A Pretty Pucker for a Low Price!

Friday, April 01, 2011

I can honestly say I'm lipstick crazy. I prefer it over lipgloss anyday. I don't how that happened! I think the remergence of all things lady like set me on another beauty obessession.

I found NK ( Nicka K) lipstick at my local BSS for $1. Yes, ma'am....$1. Over the 2,3 years, I've had a couple and really didnt like them but after doing some research on some higher priced colors that I liked but didnt want to buy, I found that NK had alot dupes or very popular colors for this season.

The eight colors at the top are my favorites!!! Here they swatched on my hairy arm:

Starting for the left:
1) Natural- a creamy nude color

2)Chocolate- a creamy cocoa color, I use Chocolate to tone down some the Natural and another shade to match me perfectly

3)Peach Beige- a shimmery peach brown

4)Purple Rain- no where near purple! lol! Its a beige-y pink and I use a bit of NK Chocolate to perfect the color on me.

5)Vibrant Orange- a shimmer bright orange. I'm obsessed with Orange and Coral lippies for the spring/summer!

6) Divine Violet- The closest I've even gotten to a MAC Lavender Whip dupe

7) Brilliant Fuchsia- a beautiful shimmery deep violet

8)Ruby Red- NK has several reds, this was the perfect one for a me. A dupe of  L'Oreal Beyonce Infallible.
 Here are some of the duos I created with NK Lipstick.

( above) NK Natural and Chocolate

NK Divine Violet and Chocolate

The only con I would say about that I would say about the lipstick is the smell, which some weird plastic, watermelon, melon smell. However, NK Purple Rain must be one of the new formulas because it doesnt have the same smell.

Do you own any NK Lipsticks??? Let me know?

I have three and I hate them. I will consider trying other colors tho. I have

Satin Glow(401)
Orchid Rose(809)
Coral Dreams(922)

I love the colors but they are so glittery/shimmery. They feel grainy on my lips. I always have to pair them with liner and/or gloss to get them to look decent on me. I want to see if the darker colors have glitter...i sure hope not because as I said, i love the colors but not the texture of the lipsticks. yours look pretty on you though!

Love the colors, hate the texture. they are all shimmery/glittery and the glitter makes them feel grainy on my lips. I didnt know that before I bought them or I would have chosen other shades.

yours look nice on you though. maybe Ill try other shades
