NYX Mini Haul

Hey my sweet peas <3
When I went grocery shopping today I decided to pop into the cosmetic section and check out the NYX line. I wanted to get some of the eye pencils but they didn't have the color I was looking for so I decided on these three items:
                                    ♥ ♥ NYX Nail Lacquer in Carnation
                                    ♥ ♥ NYX Cream Blush in Rouge
                                    ♥ ♥ NYX Lipstick in LSS 620 Paris

                                                              ♥ ♥ LSS 620 Paris
   I've seen this color in a few reviews and I really liked the way it looked on other peoples swatches. When I swatched this on my hand it looked fine and I loved it....but when I got home and put it on my lips I knew it was a mistake. My picture looks prettyer then it really is. It looks darker in real life. It looks cheap. It's not flattering at all. It also really dried out my lips. It also was really hard to get off :S which is so odd. When I left it on without re-applying it for a few hours it kind of stained my lips. I don't know if it was just this one because I have heard great things about this lipstick :(

                                         ♥ ♥ Cream Blush in Rouge
I've heard lots of great reviews about NYX cream blushers so I definetely had to pick one up!!  I really liked this although I do have some complaints (I'm very hard to please and almost always find a complaint lol) It goes on nice and is true to it's color in the package. You defintely have to re-apply this. It only stays on for about an hour. It also made my skin look a little but oily which I've never had happen with a cream blusher before. My sister said she couldn't notice but I could!! Overal I liked it though :)
                                                  ♥ ♥ Carnation        
I have been keeping my eyes out for a good yellow nail polish and this one popped out at me. I really like the packaging of the NYX makeup...I love the ♥'s!! Anywho!! I really liked this nail polish. It was a good texture that went on nice and smooth. It was creamy but not too creamy.... I think it could be a teeensy bit creamier but overal it was good! You need two coats which is no problem at all!! It's not streaky and dry's relatively fast. No complaints YAY!!
What NYX products have you all tried? Were they a hit or a miss??

Hi, came over from the blog hop and saw I was already following thru GFC and so this time I followed on Facebook. I would love a follow back on GFC if you aren't already and a follow on Facebook. I had some trouble and had to start my FB all over again and that hurt my stat report to do reviews, so I need all the help I can get! Thanks so much for your help!
