China Glaze Crackle and NYX Soft Mattle Lip Cream

China Glaze Crackle in Broken Hearted over Sally Hansen silver city.
A good tip: let your first polish dry completely, then apply a VERY thin layer to get the full crackle effect. as you can pinky had a bit more of a thicker layer so it doesn't look as crackled.

On the left is Tokyo and the right Milan.
Tokyo is a light baby pink and Milan appears hot pink on my lips..for some reason. It'll probably appear a bit lighter on nude lips.
These are a delight. They will accentuate chapped lips, so exfoliate before applying this and possibly lip balm too. The colors are so opaque, they are beautiful. I don't feel drying at all!! The best part about these is that they are $6 at Ulta right now. They do have good staying power once they are set, I don't know how long but i'm sure i'll have to reapply eventually.
NYX puts high end cosmetics to shame sometimes. sigh
