3 NYX Lip Products, 2 Formulas, 1 Problem


NYX are pretty much the beauty brand of the moment in the UK since popping up in Boots stores recently and becoming available on ASOS! 

I personally love NYX as they offer affordable yet high quality products and the shade ranges of all of their lip products is down right amazing! So of course I picked up a few different products in some rather gorgeous shades and thought I'd share them with you today as well as talking about NYX's sneaky trick with newly launched products! 


3 Lip Products  
NYX Butter Gloss in 'Cupcake' - If you love your lip gloss then this range of Butter Gloss's is for you as they come in so so many shades and are importantly non tacky and so comfortable. All shades are medium coverage but can be sheered down if you remove the excess from the wand before applying. Cupcake for me is the perfect girly shade and it does have a hint of a caramel scent to it which I like. As for how long it lasts on the lips I'd say it's slightly better than a standard high street lipgloss however within an hour or two of eating or drinking these do need to a re-applied. I know I will be picking up a few more of these over summer! Available for £5.50 on ASOS here or in select Boots stores. 

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in 'Morocco' - Okay, so I may have found my favourite lip product ever here! I'm not even joking. These matte lip cream are just amazing! Soft, yet matte and available in 23+ shades. The lightweight whipped lip cream just glides over the lips with a fairly opaque coverage and dries slowly to a soft matte finish that stays all day on the lips through eating and drinking. Compared to other matte lip creams I've tried these are comfortable and affordable. I decided to picked up the shade Morocco for summer and it didn't disappoint with it's vivid orange hue but I'll be certainly trying out some of the nude shades especially 'Cannes' as it's apparently a Kylie Jenner dupe! Available for £5.50 on ASOS here or in select Boots stores. 

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in 'Soft Spoken' - Lastly I had to try out a newer release with NYX Liquid Suede in the shade Soft Spoken as it looked the nude for me. And again the shade didn't disappoint with it's opaque coverage however I did find this took longer to dry than the Soft Matte Lip Cream and had a slightly tacker feels which was easily solved with a dusting of translucent powder. However this did last a long time in fact I had to remove it at the end of the day! Available for £6.50 on ASOS here or in select Boots stores. 

2 Formulas 
Though there are differences in the above two lip creams I found them to look and apply the same but with Soft Matte Lip Creams having so many shades I know I'd always opt to buy more of them than the Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks. However I have a feeling I know why NYX wanted to launch more lip creams similar to the popular Soft Matte Lip Creams... which leads me onto the problem I have with NYX and their newer lip products!

1 Problem
You see up until NYX released their latest lip products all liquid lip products have contained 8ml of product and priced at £5.50. So both the above Butter Gloss and Soft Matte Lip Creams are 8ml however with the large packaging of the new Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick and Lip Lingerie Lipstick you would instantly think they would contain more product, maybe 10-12ml, right? Well sadly you would be wrong, as they contain only 4ml of product! So lets get this right... they appear nearly double in size of the original liquid lip products yet contain half of the product! And to make things worse the two latest lip product releases cost £1.50 more at £6.50! 

I really think NYX could have continued to extend the colour range of the popular Soft Matte Lip Creams but they saw a way of making more money. 

With an extensive shade range I will certainly be trying out more Soft Matte Lip Creams and avoiding the latest NYX lip product releases from now on!
