Hope you are well. As you might have guessed from the title, its all about Nyx liquid lipsticks. I didn’t plan to do this but I get asked about my thoughts on NYX lipsticks on my Instagram so I had to!!!!
Ever since Boots started stocking Nyx Cosmetics, we have been really happy. We all know how good Nyx Cosmetics products are and they are budget-friendly as well. Like many of you, I used to see beautiful Nyx products on Instagram, Pinterest, Youtube etc and always felt jealous of people living in the US 😛 but not any more!
Let’s get straight to the lipsticks 🙂
Nyx Soft Matte | £5.50
The soft mattes were released quite a long ago and all the shades are really beautiful. The formula is a thick liquid which dries matte on the lips. It is incredibly comfortable and does not feel dry on the lips. At the moment there are 26 shades released in the UK. I was more interested in the shades that works best on medium skin tones.
I bought the shade ‘Cannes’ after researching on Internet. Its a beautiful pink shade and I absolutely love it 🙂
I recently got another shade ‘Stockholm’ after Poofie.peej recommended and OMG its such a stunning brown based nude.
- Comfortable matte formula
- Vast shade range
- Can slightly wear off after drinking or eating.
I am loving these so much that I will be getting some more shades in soft matte 🙂
Nyx Lip Lingerie | £6.50
Look at the name of this range …lol Nyx Cosmetics gave names of lingerie details to all their shades. The shade range is more on the nudes and neutrals as you expect from the name LINGERIE 🙂 🙂 And there is atleast one nude lipstick to suit each skin tones. I think there are about 12 shades and all are very popular.
As soon as these were launched on Boots website, most shades got out of stock. I managed to get ‘Ruffle Trim‘ which is a dusty peach shade and was released with other shades and got ‘Exotic‘ which is a warm mahogany red (that suits all skin tones) and was released a bit later.
I was not very keen on the formula at first as I heard they were drying. But since they were new releases, I wanted to try atleast and I am glad I got these. First of all both the shades are beautiful. Yes, these are drying but I prep my lips (Exfoliate and moisturize) before applying these to avoid any dry patches show up or the lipstick settling into lines (yes my lips are not flawless).
- Nice nudes and neutrals
- A nude for every skin tone
- Transfer proof
- Long lasting
- No perfume/scent
- A bit drying but can be worked with exfoliation (which I normally do before applying matte lipsticks)
Even if you don’t like nude lipsticks, you need to try these atleast once!
Liquid Suede lipsticks | £6.50
This gives a suede finish and takes a little while to dry up. There are 12 shades available in the UK but only one stood out to me and its the most famous ‘Soft Spoken’ 🙂 .
Its a beautiful warm toned plum/brown shade (as u know i am not good at describing shades) but have a look at the swatches 🙂 These lipsticks are not very long lasting and can wear off specially from centre of the lips after eating or drinking.
- Incredibly pigmented
- Not very smooth so you might need to go over to achieve even finish
- Needs touch ups after eating/drinking
This is my least favourite formula but the colour is beautiful.
Let’s have a look at swatches 🙂
