In my trip to Ulta last month, there were many Nyx lip purchases, the Full Throttle Lipsticks was another of them. I decided on two shades from this line, Sidekick and Trickster.
Nyx Lipstick swatches
Sidekick is described as a coral-nude while Trickster is a violet-mauve.
The tubes are small, so it's easy to apply because the bullet is so small. At the same time, you don't get a lot of product in these small tubes. There is 0.08 oz of product in the tube. For comparison, a MAC lipstick is 0.1 oz. 
Sidekick is a gorgeous nude shade, but it needs to be applied carefully. It gets streaky, so it takes a little work to even it out.
Trickster is such a pretty purple, and I'm kind of obsessed with it. It doesn't get as streaky as Sidekick, but still a little so it also takes a bit more time.
Nyx Full Throttle Waterproof Lip Color
The formula on the Full Throttle Lipsticks is fairly thin, which is why I think it gets streaky. They're pretty pigmented and creamy upon application. These do dry down and stay put. They seriously didn't budge after a full day of eating/drinking. I was extremely impressed with how long they lasted.

These retail for $7 each, which isn't bad considering you don't need a lot and they last so well. I definitely want to grab more colors, despite needing a little extra time to apply them. I really like the color selection, so I can't wait to get more.
Thanks for reading!
