A few months ago, I posted about my NYX Beauty School Dropout Alumni Palette but I didn’t include any swatches at the time. There are 40 lip colours in this palette and I wanted to see how each looked on, so I decided I’d do a lip swatch post. Unfortunately, I tried for two days to get good photos of the shades on my lips and I failed miserably – and my lips were so sore – so I decided to swatch them on my arm instead
I was so close to not posting this as I’m really only happy with the first image but it took a long time to finally get these swatches so I don’t want to let all of that time and effort go to waste. I hope that you can all overlook my shoddy photography and swatching just this once
I am so sorry for the difference in angle, lighting and focus. These were taken over a number of days as I had to work around my daughter’s nap times and when I looked at each photo after I had taken it, it looked to be in focus but obviously it wasn’t! (Maybe it’s time I had another eye test haha)
As these shades were from a huge palette, they don’t have any names but I swatched each of the rows from left to right
Although there are some very similar shades, I’m pretty impressed with them! There are a few colours that are a bit meh – mainly the metallic-y browns and that whiteish colour – but overall, I really like them. I’m a big fan of the oranges which surprised me because I really didn’t think I’d be a fan of orange lipstick!
Are these the kind of colours you’d go for?
