The last time I stopped by Ulta to pick up one thing from NYX, everything was buy one get one 50% off, so naturally that meant I had to get 3 lipsticks. I was excited to try the relatively new High Voltage lipsticks.
Although I'm generally not a fan of the clear plastic lid, it usually feels a bit cheap. That being said I do like that it is easy to see exactly what color the lipstick is, and the quality of the lipstick more than makes up for packaging. Also I realized that when I got home, I accidentally picked up the tester for the shade Rock Star. Luckily it was never opened, so it was perfectly fine, but it does annoy me a little bit that it has tester printed on the front.
Sweet 16: This shade is a beautiful neutral pink shade. This is a great everyday color that would go with pretty much any makeup look.
Privileged: This color is bright pink. It looks very bright and neon in the tube, but once applied to the lips it is a bit more muted and wearable. I'm sure if it was paired with a brighter lip pencil or lip gloss, it could be more intense.
Rock Star: This shade is a gorgeous red. I don't typically go for red shades, but this true red color is really growing on me.
Overall, I really like these lipsticks, and the next time there is a sale I might need to pick a couple more (or all the remaining shades). They are very creamy and smooth, plus they last a long time! And for the price these lipsticks are a steal!
