I've had this lipstick for about a year, and I didn't use it much previously because I found the rose/mauve shade and formula too dense and heavy. However, I pulled B52 out again, just to try it for an everyday work shade, and I'm much happier with it than I used to be. It's great for a look comprised of nothing but mascara, brows, blush, and lipstick, because it defines my lips and brightens my face. The formula is very smooth, and the pigment is full-coverage. This lipstick is pretty perfume-y, some floral fragrance, but I don't mind too much because the price, color, and long-wear are great.
Another beautiful neutral brown shade from NYX with pink and slight mauve undertones, but I found it was too dark for my fair complexion. I prefer the lipstick "Perfect" as it's a lighter shade and more appropriate for my complexion. I gave this lipstick to a friend with a darker complexion and it really looks beautiful and better on her.
Love this color. I'm fair but with naturally rosy lips and I have a hard time with a lot of pinks or lighter nudes. This is a medium pink shade with just enough brown (just a little!) that it matches my lip color very closely. On me it is a shade right between MAC's Syrup and Twig. This works well as a daytime nude for me and is a color I can keep in my desk or in my purse because it goes with everything. If you lips are naturally pale, I'm not sure this is an exciting enough color to worry about but if your lips are darker you should take a closer look. I prefer it with a gloss. This one isn't totally matte but it looks a little more dimensional (natural) with a small amount of shine.
Another great buy! I ordered this from Cherry Culture awhile ago, and finally came today. :) On my lips, it is a reddish brown. A nice colour for the daytime where I usually sheer it out with some lipgloss, and you can build up the intensity just by applying another layer of this lippy. Fairly moisturizing, very creamy smooth texture, and does not feather. Doesn't last through eating/drinking, so reapply then. Would be a nice colour for medium to dark skintones. :)
I absolutely love NYX lipsticks! They are moisturizing and highly pigmented. I love the fact that I can swipe them on without looking and know that my lips looks satiny and lovely.
This color surprised me. I was expecting a more muted nude, but what I got was almost a perfect dupe for Bobbi Brown's Brown l/s. Don't quote me on the "Brown" color because I may be remembering "Brownie Pink". LOL. In either case, this color is a great darker-than-your-natural-lip color that Bobbi Brown is always saying is the perfect everyday color. It's a brown, mauve that looks polished on my fair skin.
I don't know my MAC color, because they can't ever match me (I have pink undertones, but I wear warm colors the best). I am a 110 in MUFE HD fdtn. I say, give this lippie a chance because I'm definitely never buying BB l/s again!
LOVE this! I look so classy when I wear this haha. This is a colour I'd wear out to a fancy dinner or something else of the like. My boyfriend described it as a more 'sophisticated' colour and I agree. A bit too dark for day time wear, though I think it would look lovely on older women at work. Application was easy, the lipstick wasn't drying and the staying power was quite good compared to the other NYX offerings.
For me, B52 is a MLBB shade. I already have pigmented pinkish mauve lips and this gives the perfect hue to make me look natural. B52 is a pink brown with a touch of mauve. B52 doesn't lean extremely to warm or cool. I find this shade to be decently neutral. B52 has a rich creamy satin finish with good color payoff and no shimmer. As with all NYX l/s, I do find that they lack staying power. I get about 3-4 hours of wear without food or drink. I do like how NYX l/s feel on the lip, they don't dry them out and they are quite moisturizing.
Thank you MUA reviewers! This was my first NYX lippie and I love it! I was looking for a warm toned pink/mauve color that wasn't too bright or brown for my Asian NC30 skin. This color is perfect! Like another reviewer said, this is a color you can wear when you don't want to think about it. Just swipe and go. It also wears off into a pretty stain. It's muted enough to wear during the fall/winter, but I think it's also warm enough to wear during the spring-I plan to put some gloss over it.
I think this color is a possible dupe for MAC Syrup, which I love. Beautiful natural color with a tinge of plummy-ness.
I absolutely love this shade. It's slightly lighter than my natural lip color, but looks very natural. It's so creamy! I just wish there was more product in the tube. I can see myself running out in no time!
