"The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do."
I have a haul and review of some products from a company that you may not have heard of yet! NIA Cosmetics. The owner Irenia reached out to me to try some of her lip products (they were sent to me for free, with no other compensation and I have chosen of my own volition to talk about these lippies and share them with you)!
These are described as lip glosses, they come in a pot and can be applied with a lip brush. These remind me a lot of OCC Lip Tars except they are hand made using absolutely no harsh chemicals!
We'll jump right into the shades!
The first shade is Fantasy.
This is a gorgeous iridescent light blue.
It's super pigmented and creamy. A tiny bit goes a long way!
The reflects in this are stunning! When I see this shade, I think of mermaids.
The next shade is Sapphire.
This is a deep metallic blue.
It's hard to get the full effect in photos but this has a beautiful sheen.
This shade is so unique!
Sticking with the blues! Next up is Majesty.
Who's bold enough to wear this shade?! :-D
I know.... There aren't words for this one, right?
Blue isn't exactly the easiest color to pull off but man, is this absolutely beautiful.
Naked is a gorgeous metallic nude.
The shine and reflectiveness of this shade is incredible.
Nia is hard to describe. It's a medium pink with a gold sheen, however the gold isn't as apparent once on the lips.
Nia is one of my favorites!
This is a beautiful every day shade.
Let's tone it down a little, here is a classic red shade! Stiletto is perfection.
These are totally true to color. What you see in the pot is what you get on your lips.
This is such a great, classic every day red shade.
Last but certainly not least, my absolute favorite shade! Fuego.
You have to see this one in person to get the full effect. Pictures do it no justice!
This is pure pigmented, saturated color!
Isn't she stunning?!?
If you'd like to see any other shades on the lips, let me know!
These are so fun and unique. I love how pigmented they are and although having to apply with a lip brush isn't exactly travel friendly, I found that the wear time was surprisingly long with these. The matte shades laster longer than the shimmer/metallics and the day I wore Fuego, it even lasted through a greasy meal! They feel nice on the lips, not too heavy. Similar to a lip gloss but more pigmented and long wearing.
These cost $10 each and will last you literally a lifetime and a half! Check out NIA Cosmetics website, they have tons of shades to choose from and Irenia is adding SO many more!! I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.
