From left to right with descriptions of color from NYX:
BLS05 Hunk, blue violet.
BLS08 Mary Janes, true red.
BLS11 Licorice, deep burgundy
BLS15 Juju, coral red.
BLS17 Pops, mauve.
BLS19 Big Cherry, cherry red.
As the color does transfer, the shades that I have (which mostly deeper shades) all leave stain on lips without drying my lips. The color and hydration stay strong as long as your lips do not have contact with other objects, that is about 3-4 hours for me. Reapply nicely.
Relevant beauty profile: medium/light olive skin tone.
|BLS05 Hunk, BLS11 Licorice|
BLS11(Licorice) This is a deep berry but not vampy color. I like to line my lips with Mac lip liner in Current to add a bit more dimension.
BLS17(Pops), This is the lightest color from this purchase, but probably the deepest in the nude group from this line. It is a cool mauve nude. I have to say that this is the least wearable color of the batch. Even at winter time, it is still slightly lighter to my liking. I have to wear lip liner (Mac Spice) to make it work.
The Reds !
