NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams & NYX Xtreme Lip Gloss Swatches (PIC HEAVY)

Do you live in the USA? If so, please enter my MAC giveaway here
Today, I swatched the NYX Matte Lip Creams ( & the 2 NYX Xtreme Lip Glosses that I reviewed here). I own 6 of them & I LOVE them.
Here's what NYX's website says:
Description:
Neither lipstick nor lip gloss—this is matte lip cream. A new kind of pout paint that goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing. Available in 13 lip colors.
Performance:
What it is: Highly pigmented, matte lip cream
What it does: Creates various matte lip looks
Why we love it: Delightfully creamy and lightweight, our award winning line just expanded with two captivating new shades.
Artist Tips/Suggested Use:
How to use: Apply directly to lips, or over lipstick. Apply with lip liner to define outline of lips.
They are $6.00 on NYX's website ($4.20 if you have the Professional Discount), they come in a tube like most lip glosses & have a doe tip applicator. 
Here are swatches of the 6 shades that I own:
(From Left to Right)
Abu Dhabi, Addis Ababa, Amsterdam, Istanbul, San Paulo & Tokyo
Abu Dhabi:
Deep Rose Beige
This is not a good color on me at all. It's very brown & washes my skin out.
Addis Ababa:
Bright Fuchsia
I love this color, it's a bright, gorgeous pink! (favorite!)
Amsterdam:
Pure Red
Can't go wrong with blue based matte red!
Here is Amsterdam swatched beside MAC's Russian Red, they are super close, Russian Red is on the left & is a little deeper than Amsterdam. 
Istanbul:
Clean Pink
This color is so pretty, it's very close to my natural lip color with more of a pink tone.
San Paulo:
Plummy Pink
This color is much more pink and much lighter than I expected but still very pretty. 
Tokyo:
Bubblegum Pink
I love this color in the tube, but it looks terrible on me!
Here's all of them in the tube.
I got a lot of comments asking me to swatch the Xtreme Lip Glosses that I reviewed last week, so here they are! I love both of these colors, again, you can click the link above to read my review.
Here is Candyland:
This color is so gorgeous & the perfect pink!
Nude Peach Fuzz:
Another gorgeous color! I love the glossiness of these colors!
I turned 26 on Monday, my husband & I celebrated with lots of shopping & then we went to a HUGE smogasboard (buffet) called Shady Maple. It serves PA dutch food (my favorite) things like chicken pot pie (in other places besides Amish country it's called chicken & dumplings), apple butter, red beet eggs, shoofly pie & much, much more! If it's your birthday, you get to eat free & everything tastes so amazing! I ate so much I thought I was going to explode. All in all, it was a fabulous birthday!
(Me & my hubs on my birthday!)
Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I've tried the red one and a Tokyo as well. I haven't tried Tokyo but the red one faded on me really fast :( Did you have that with them too?

    1. I do have to apply them more often, they do fade fairly fast.
