Product Review ~ NYX Rust Sparkle and Pumpkin lips

I knew this was going to be fun. I have never done a lip gloss/lipliner review quite in this fashion before. 

I actually thought at some points of whipping out the camera and doing this the way the pros on YT do their thing. Then I said, "Uhh, no dearie, stick to what you are good at!"

NYX gloss $20
NYX liner  $15

I like the rich colour of the liner. It is also very soft to the touch, very easy to apply.

Bottom: M.A.C. Chestnut liner 

The Pumpkin liner is very rich and definitely a nice orange colour. I like it alot actually. Actually, it reminds me of my M.A.C. CB96 A89 Frost lipstick. The Rust Sparkle gloss gives the impression (prior to application) that it would be a few shades heavier. It is actually a pinkish/orange coral colour. *Insert shy emoticon* But, the way I am applying it here was a tip from the sales associate. It gives the impression of a richer colour. 
NYX Pumpkin liner only
I first apply the Pumpkin liner as in the picture to the left. Next, apply the Rust Sparkle gloss. The sales associate had said that applying a lip liner was not necessary but at times, my lips just don't seem finished without a liner. So my final step was to apply my M.A.C. Chestnut lip liner. This first photo is without flash to show the true gloss and liner colour.
