Currently listening to Alicia Keys | Unbreakable.
I love things that come in boxes, although I’m not one who is a makeup junkie I was super excited at this beautiful black box of lipsticks my newly discovered Nigerian beauty brand JAXX COSMETICS sent to me and in today’s post I’d be unboxing it and swatching it with you.
The packaging of the lipsticks is top notch!!! I’ve not tried a lot of Nigerian beauty brands but of the few I’ve seen this is the best. I looked around for errors and imperfections because I couldn’t believe a Nigerian beauty brand could pull this off and there was none.

I got six different shades that are absolutely beautiful and very wearable. There are a lot more other shades for those that like to experiment but since I’m into very subtle makeup, these are just perfect.
The lipsticks come with an applicator (as usual) not the softest but they do get the of applying the liquid lipsticks done. I swatched them on my hand, one coat at a time and I love the fact that on each swatch the colors got bolder which means the color intensity is build-able. So you can wear one coat during the day and add more layers for a bolder night look.

I had the swatches on my hand overnight and when I woke up this morning they were still intact. I tried on ‘SEKY’ which is my favorite shade as it’s a very similar shade to the Mac Cosmetics ‘RIRI WOO‘, I drink with it and it was still intact with no cracks. I only noticed it transferring while I ate bread and akara which I think is as a result of the oil from the akara.
