Do you have a lipstick that is so frosty you always look like the “Metallic Girl” going on a costume party? Ok, so maybe I’m exaggerating. 🙂 But I have a few lippies that I can’t wear as much as I want to because of its frost finish. Frost finish lipsticks highlight dry and chappy lips.

I have NYX Round Lipstick in Rose Bud. It’s a pretty and complementing warm pink color with gold frost.

New pose! (Please don't mind the uneven application. 🙂 )

Pretty right? I wouldn’t want this to go wasted so I thought of pairing it up with something. I decided to apply a gloss on top of it and a new lipstick was born!

This was the gloss that I used. It’s an old lip gloss from Revlon which I believe is now discontinued. It’s a very sheer peach gloss with tons of pink, silver, and gold microshimmers. Smells like candy too! Yum!

Now, for the final look…

Tada!

I’m loving my Nymph Aura Shine Lips in Aura Pink and Dear Darling Roll Roll Gloss in #17 Pink I decided to buy the Coral version. : )

This post would be more of the swatches of Nymph Aura Shine Lips in Aura Coral and Dear Darling Roll Roll Gloss in #18 Coral and comparisons between the pink version. For a more detailed review about the product, please click here.

Photos! Photos! Photos!

1. Nymph Aura Shine Lips in Aura Coral – It is very close to my lip color so it appears more natural on me compared to the Aura Pink.

This is almost the shade in real life.

2. Dear Darling Roll Roll Gloss in #18 Coral – Sheer coral with gold shimmers which appear very subtle when applied.

And when I use them both…

Except for the color (duh?!), the pink and coral version of the Nymph Aura Lips is very much the same. I really don’t know which one I love more! I’ll just wear them alternately or depending on my mood. I just wished they lasted a little longer.

The Nymph Aura Shine Lips costs 478php while the Dear Darling Roll Roll Gloss is 278php per tube.

For comparisons between the pink and coral lip products of the Nymph Aura line, here are a couple of pictures:

Happy December! 25 days to go till Christmas! Have you done your Christmas shopping yet? If not, I suggest that you visit Etude House and check their Nymph Aura and Sweet Propose line! Personally, my favorite among all the brands and all the makeup lines/collections released, is Etude House’s Nymph Aura Line! 😀 The culprit? The Nymph Aura’s lip products!

Nymph Aura Shine Lips and Dear Darling Roll Roll Gloss

Dear Darling Roll Roll Gloss in #17 Pink

My camera captured the exact shade of the lip gloss except for the gold shimmers. 😦

They don’t call it Roll Roll Gloss for nothing! The applicator tip DOES ROLL!

This is my first time to have an applicator like this, you roll the applicator on your lips. It gives a shiny wet look. It’s not sticky and has a strong candy-like scent. Compared to Nymph Aura Shine Lips, the shimmers of this gloss are more visible.

It has a very faint candy scent.

It looks bright and pigmented but when swatched, it’s actually sheer. It has hints of gold shimmers which are barely noticeable.

The color is sheer, just enough to give you that healthy looking, pinkish lips! Evens out my lip color and gives a glossy finish. Does not dry my lips,actually, it feels like a lip balm. Doesn’t stay long enough for me though.

So let’s see them together, shall we?

Looks almost the same in terms of color and shade.

pouty lips! 😀

I like how sheer and subtle the color is, very pretty and natural.

In summary,

Pros

Dear Darling Roll Roll Gloss in #17 Pink:

  • Gives a wet, shiny finish.
  • Smells nice.
  • Has subtle shimmers which gives a nice effect to the lips.
  • The applicator tip is something to try, it’s easy to use too!
  • Very affordable for only php278!

Nymp Aura Shine Lips in Aura Pink:

  • Gives a natural pinkish color to the lips.
  • Evens out my lip color.
  • Very moisturizing.
  • Has a very faint scent.
  • Not bad for php 478.

Cons

Dear Darling Roll Roll Gloss in #17 Pink:

  • Lasting power is average.

Nymp Aura Shine Lips in Aura Pink:

  • Lasting power is a little below average.
  • It is quite sheer so I need to layer a couple of times meaning a lot of product is used in a single application, it will be consumed faster than my regular lip products.

I really don’t mind the cons of these lip products. They go so well together! Next stop, Nymph Aura Volumer! 😀
