If you follow me over on Instagram you may have noticed I have been posting a lot of Nyx Cosmetics products on the gram so I thought it was about time I got a blog post up! The Nyx Cosmetics contour palette featured as my contour palette of the year last year so I thought as I have already mentioned how much I love that on my blog I will dedicate this post to express my love for the amazing range of lip products from Nyx Cosmetics!
First of all is one range that blew up on social media, the cute packaging, shade range and even the name sucked everyone in to this hype, it was selling out everywhere when the collection first release and this is the Nyx Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks! I own the shades Exotic and Ruffle Trim. Exotic is borderline nude. On the scale of nude shades there is pinky nudes and brown nudes. Exotic is pink with brown undertones in my opinion but quite at the pink end, I would compare it to twig by MAC Cosmetics. It is a gorgeous shade, applies wonderfully and feels very luxurious on the lips.
The second shade I have from the Nyx Lingerie liquid lipstick collection is Ruffle Trim. This shade is a beautiful need at the pinky end of the scale. A lot of people refer to it as a dupe for the Kylie ‘ginger’ Lip kit and after comparing it to my friends lip kit I have to agree, there is very little difference between the shades so if you fear customs and high postage prices just pick up ruffle trim instead! I love how with the Nyx lingerie liquid lipsticks they feel so light on the lips which I love with any lip product as it then isn’t too drying or too thickly layered leading to issues with transfer.
I do prefer Ruffle Trim to exotic just because it is more of my everyday wear colour and I have no issue with transfer with ruffle trim but for some reason there is sometimes the odd transfer on the back of my hand if I wipe the tip of my nose when i am wearing exotic. Both shades are stunning and I do recommend them, the formula is unbelievable for how affordable they are! I highly recommend the Nyx Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks if you don’t own any already, I definitely plan to grow my collection!
Next I have a shade from Soft Matte Lip Cream Collection. There are so many shades in this collection but me being me picked up yet another nude! This is the shade ‘Berlin’ and it is a very browny nude. I have to be honest, at first I was slightly thrown back by the idea and concept of a matte lip cream, liquid lipsticks or lip glosses were all I knew of but a matte lip cream was a whole to conception for my brain to take in. Nevertheless I picked one up and oh, my, gosh!
I love it!
The creamy formula makes it so easy to apply, it glides on the lips so nicely. It takes slightly longer to dry and set than the liquid lipsticks but once it does there is very little transfer issues. I may have to re apply after eating or drinking and when it begins to fade after a few hours but that’s not an issue at all. Definitely worth the price and I love how cute and small the packaging is, perfect handbag size!
Last but most certainly not least is the first every Nyx lip product I owned. A Butter Gloss with the cutest shade name I ever heard ‘Angel food cake’ This gloss is pretty much your average pink gloss colour wise but formula wise it is something else! I have never owned such a pigmented gloss, I love how the colour lasts unlike most that barely even show.Again like the lip cream the packaging is small and cute, the perfect size to pop into your handbag on the go.
Overall I absolutely adore the range of lip products from Nyx Cosmetics and now I have tried a few from different ranges I will definitely be picking up more shades. My favourite thing about them is how affordable they are its actually crazy how good quality they are for such an affordable price! I can’t wait to pick up some more shades soon.
