Bright Pink Lipsticks: NARS and NYX

Hello everyone! It's the start of holy week, and in a few days a lot of Filipinos will be on vacation., but me, I'll be on vacation starting tomorrow already! Yey. Anyway, on to today's post.

As a makeup artist, it's important to have a hot pink lipstick in your stash. But since I normally gravitate towards MLBB shades, I don't have a bright pink lipstick except for NYX Louisiana. Lately, though, I've been reading a lot of raves about NARS Schiap. I've always wondered how NYX Louisiana compared to NARS Schiap. And now, thanks to Martha, I have my very own NARS Schiap. Bwahahaha!

Left: NARS Schiap
Right: NYX Louisiana

Here they are when swatched on my hand:


Here is NARS Schiap on my lips:


And here is NYX Louisiana on my lips:


In my opinion, NYX Louisiana is much more wearable than NARS Schiap but both are pretty colors. I find that NARS Schiap is a very unique color (hence it's a favorite of many celebrities), and if you're quite daring, definitely try this out. NARS Schiap is also more pigmented than NYX Louisiana. With NARS, one swipe and you've already got hot pink lips, while with NYX Louisiana, you have to go through your lips twice.

Where to buy?
NARS l/s is available in Rustan's counters for P1250
NYX l/s is available through online sellers for P150-P200
