I’ve talked about NYX a lot here since their Boots store launce last month. I’ve come to the overwhelming conclusion that my love for the brand is rather repidly increasing and my self-control, well, that doesn’t exist anymore! But in the name of making me feel like it’s more than just buying myself makeup, I’m squeezing yet another blog post out of it! (You can read my previous two here and here).
This week, I thought I’d talk about the similarities about the different ranges of Liquid Lip products that NYX have to offer, hopefully making it a little easier the next time you pop to a counter!
NYX Matte Lip Creams
These are beautiful! I love how small they are meaning they’re really great to throw in your bag and apply on the go. Of the three ranges from the NYX Lip Gloss family that I’m going to talk about, this is the one with the largest shade range! I have four in my collection, but there are at least another 5 on my wishlist (the obsession is serious!)
The formula feels much drier than your average lip gloss, but don’t be mistaken it isn’t drying on the lips, they go on kind of like butter. They also dry the fastest out of the three but but not to worry if you’re not the not the best at applying precisely in one swoop, there’s enough time to fasff a little first! The stay power is good too, it’s not on the same level as a lip stain but it’s there until lunch time, that’s for sure!
The only bad thing I can say is some of the shades can be a little streaky. I think it’s down to luck of the draw and maybe the state of your lips but ‘Abu Dhabi’ just doesn’t look quite as flawless on me as it does my friend. I had the same inssue with Amsterdam aswell, although it is combat-able with a couple of layers or a priming layer first.
NYX Liquid Suede
These are equally as beautiful as the Matte Lip Creams (you’re going to hear that a lot, just a warning.) The colour range isn’t quite as varst and varied but the shades they do have make are spectacular. I picked up ‘Soft-Spoken (contrary to my June favourites where I said I had ‘Sandstorm’, my mistake!). I aslo grabbed ‘Cherry Skies’ which is the most perfect vampy red. The consitency of these feel less dry so if you suffer from chapped lips you might prefer the formula of these (not that the lip creams were drying though.) They’re not quite as flat matte as the Lip Creams and they don’t last quite as long but they’re pretty damn good!
I’ve read a lot of reviews where people mentioned the didn’t like the size of the applicator foot, whilst I don’t really mind too much, I can see why others may find it less precise and harder to apply. But with a little practice I’m sure most will get used to it!
NYX Lip Lingerie
The Lip Lingerie’s were kind of an impulse buy when I decided to do this post. There’s a lot of hype around these at the moment particularly in the blogosphere, and all honesty, I was a little disappointed. There are 12 shades in the collection and they’re all fairly similar. If your’re a gal that likes a good nude though, this range might be for you! I picked up the shades ‘Exotic’ and ‘Embellishment’ which I think are the boldest shades ing the range (with the exception of ‘Teddy’ and ‘Beauty Mark’.)
Of the three liquid lip products I’ve talked about, this one is the dryest in the end and the most difficult to apply. This applicator though not as long as the Liquid Suede one, it picks up a little more product that I would like. Regardless though, with a bit of effort the result is really pretty, probably not my favourite because I’m more of a bold colour sort of gal! But like I said, for those of you who love a nude lippy, you should check these out!
Have any of you tried these liquid lips? I’m yet to try the Butter Glosses, I’m more of a Matte lippy sort of person so I’m not convinced I’ll love them like I do these but I’d be interested to hear if you think any different. Or if there are any shades you think I’d love…
