NYX Round Lipsticks that I REGRET buying

A while ago, I ordered a couple of NYX round lipsticks from America. I was really excited about trying them, as I had heard so many good things about them. So after they arrived, there were a couple that stood out and I completely feel in love with, but there were also a couple that I was disappointed with and I just new I wasn't going to wear.

So after doing a couple of posts swatching the colours I did like, I thought I'd do a post of the colour that I wasn't too fond of. Surprisingly, the three that I don't like were the colours that I was most looking forward to.

The first one is Louisiana, a HOT pink. It's such a daring colour and it takes confidence to wear. Confidence that I don't think I have. Plus it just doesn't suit my skin tone.

The next one is Circe.. I'd heard alot about this colour and how good it was, but I have to disagree. It's meant to help achieve a concealer lip look, but on my skin tone it completely fails. It makes me look a little ill!

And finally Rea which is very similar to Circe...but worse. Although you cannot tell in the picture above, it has a grey tinge to it...WHY? i don't know! This colour looks awful on me, and in my opinion, it's probably the worst one out of the three.

Do you own any NYX round lipsticks that your not too impressed with?

NOTD - BarryM Mint Green

I've wanted this colour for ages, and finally got round to buying it today! When i first thought of mint green as a nail colour, i wasn't to enthusiastic about it, but over time I've grow to like it! I think it looks nice and summery, and it really helps dress up a plain outfit.
I think that in the bottle, it looks alot lighter than it is on the nails. I'm on a search for a 'mintier' green, so basically the same colour as this one, but lighter. Any recommendations?
Are you a fan of mint greens nails?

Yesterday, I managed to finally visit a MAC CCO. If you don't know what that is, its basically a shop that sells MAC makeup, and other brands at a slightly discounted price. The items sold will often be from past collections, discontinued items or they may just be from the permanent line. There is a CCO about 45 minutes away from me, and I've been wanting to pop down and check it out for ages now!

If I'm honest, i wasn't planning on buying much, as I've often heard that there's usually never anything good left, but i actually came back with more than i was expecting too! I felt like a child in a sweety shop!

Anyway, here's what i got...

I'll be posting swatches and prices tomorrow, so watch this space! x
