Ombré, ombré, ombré. Yes, we’re still in that trend and it’s nowhere to run! We’re still going goo-goo-ga-ga over the gradient fashion and it’s all over in your beauty and fashion universe. How are you embracing it?
Well, two-tone lips are a must and I guess… you can now have gradient cheeks? NYX Cosmetics recently launched their Ombré Lip Duo and Ombré Blush! A full series of makeup products to embody the ombré mania!
NYX Cosmetics believes colour is everything and that beauty begins on the inside and ends on the outside. If lips can speak without speaking, it has got to have some colour on! Face work all day and party all night too with bold, statement colour makeup!
Inspired by the ombré trend, you can now treat your cheeks to a radiant flush of colour with the all-new Ombré Blush! The formula features two silky colours blended into one perfectly coordinated shade combo.
Delivering a gorgeous, buildable ombré effect and a flush of multi-dimensional colour, the blush allows you to either blend the colours together or use more of one than the other to create a custom blush shade that suits your skin tone! The sleek, black, portable compact also makes it easy to add a dash of colour on your cheeks when you’re on the go.
There are 5 shades being sold in Singapore:
- OB02 Strictly Chic – orange brown with light peach
- OB03 Insta Flame – coral red with peach
- OB04 Mauve Me – mauve brown with pale pink
- OB07 Soft Flush – peach with light beige
- OB08 Code Breaker – hot pink with purple
My favourites are definitely Soft Flush and Mauve Me! These two shades actually look pretty flattering on my skin tone. They are pretty pigmented but very blendable so do try to be light-handed and blend the pigments bit by bit. They do last pretty well on oily skin too which I appreciate.
Here’s wearing Mauve Me.
Dress your pout in two-toned style to compliment the gradient blush! The NEW 2-in-1 Ombré Lip Duo, inspired by the trend once again, features two coordinating shades of a lip liner and a satiny matte lipstick to create your ideal ombré lips!
Both pigments are creamy, blendable and pigment-rich shades which is very easy to apply due to the thin tips. Achieve precisely lined lips with these double-ended lip pencils/crayons! Enriched with skin-smoothing vitamin E, these lipsticks ensure smooth application and a velvety finish that is not going to be overly dry or cakey. I personally find that you still need to layer on a lip balm to prevent peeling if you have dehydrated/dry lips.
Available in 8 shades:
- OLD01 Ginger & Nutmeg – brown with beige
- OLD02 Pink Bubbles & Caviar – blue-toned hot pink with pale powder pink
- OLD5 Peaches & Cream – chilli red with bright sunset orange
- OLD07 Poppy & Lily – magenta with blue-toned lilac pink
- OLD09 Razzle & Dazzle – bright coral with pale vibrant coral
- OLD10 Rags & Riches – pale dusty brown with pale beige
- OLD11 Hollywood & Wine – deep wine red with pink
- OLD12 Bonnie & Clyde – deep dusty wine with neutral red (my favourite!)
I’m pretty sure you’d like some lip swatches so here goes! All 8 shades swatched on the lips embracing the ombré lips trend! Aren’t the shades beautiful?! Love’em all! By the way, the pigments are pretty solid, so they last on your lips even after drinking and eating. You’ll need a good lip makeup remover for this.
