On my lips: (with flash)
NYX Hot Pink compared to NARS Schiap:
NYX Hot Pink compared to MAC Strayin' (Hello Kitty)
MAC Strayin has a lot of shimmer, but I think they are from the same family, if not for the shimmer, the colors are almost the same.
MAC Pink Nouveau compared to NYX Hot Pink:
MAC Pink Nouveau is lighter compared to NYX Hot Pink
MAC Hello Kitty Strayin vs. NYX Hot Pink vs. MAC Petals & Peacocks
From the photo you can actually see the difference. MAC Petals & Peacocks looks darker and more purplish compared to the two.
MAC Strayin vs. NYX Hot Pink vs. NARS Schiap
They may look the same on the tube but trust me, they are not the same when applied on my lips. For instance, NYX Hot Pink and NARS Schiap looks almost the same on the tube and when swatched on my arm but the thing is, I have to swipe it (NYX Hot Pink) 3-4 times so the color will show, while I only need to do one swipe with NARS Schiap.
I love that it doesn't dry my lips and compared to NARS it is very much affordable. You can actually buy 7 NYX round lipsticks with the price of 1- ONE NARS. lol.
Though the color may be a perfect dupe for NARS Schiap, the coverage and finish will tell you otherwise, NARS Schiap is matte, while NYX Hot Pink is more on the creamy or satin side. So as much as you would want it to last the whole day, it will not. You will have to apply it every now and then- just like any other NYX round lipsticks.
But of course, who would not want to have a NARS Schiap dupe? With the fraction of the price, it wouldn't hurt right?
Oh and did I say its also-almost the same with the infamous MAC Pink Nouveau? I said almost ok? Hahahaha you should try it, and see for yourself. The color may vary from one person to the other though.
All in all I think, its perfect if you are looking for a NARS dupe. Good thing it's now available here in the Philippines. For all your NYX needs go to Digital Traincase.
So what's your favorite Pink Lipstick?
