NYX LIP COLLECTION & SWATCHES

Tuesday, 16 February 2016


Move over Mac, Nyx is now officially my favourite lipstick brand. They're affordable, long wearing and come in a huge variety of colours and formulas. The only downside for us UK folk is that they're not available in many shops, so we have to rely on ordering online...which with lipsticks, is basically like ordering with your eyes shut. The little cartoon paint splurge of the colour NEVER SHOWS THE ACTUAL COLOUR. Never. So that's why today I'm going to be showing you my little collection, including lip swatches, so you can see how they look on the lips!



First up we have the Intense Butter Gloss in Toasted Marshmallow (top) and the standard Butter Gloss in Angel Food Cake. These both smell really nice and I really like the packaging. Angel Food Cake always reminds me of Claire Marshall and that's essentially why I bought it. I love her! Anyway. The Intense formula is priced at £5.50 and the normal is £5.

Toasted Marshmallow
Angel Food Cake
Both of these apply fairly evenly. With Toasted Marshmallow, you might need to add a little more, just because it's a much bolder colour so you can see any little flaw. Like most lipglosses from the drugstore, they are a bit sticky, so I wouldn't recommend them on windy days! However, I love them both, and Angel Food Cake is definitely going to be a staple in my day to day collection.


Next we have the Butter lipstick in the shade Root Beer Float for £5.50. This is a dark pinky nude and I wasn't sure it would suit me. However, I think it does, and because it's a really subtle nude, it's really easy to wear. If you're looking for a minimal effort lipstick for minimal price, this is your best bet. As a side note, I really love root beer, so the name is a winner. Anyone else?

Root Beer Float
This applies really smoothly, and has a little sheen to it. It's fairly opaque and buttery, as the name would suggest. The reason I prefer these to Mac lipsticks at the moment is that they feel a lot less heavy, but with the same amount of pigmentation. This lipstick doesn't have a scent either.


As you can see, this one is a little more well loved than the others. It was my first Nyx lipstick, given to me as a random gift by my mum since it was reduced in Next (and I bought the other lip products very recently). This is actually my favourite lipstick ever though! It's in the shade Natural, although it has a purply hint to it which I love.

Natural

I don't find this to be drying on the lips, and it does mattify more the longer you wear it. I look like I'm really grumbly in this swatch for some reason. I think it's because I'd just realised that I have really weirdly shaped lips. If you're a blogger, I would not recommend lip swatch posts unless you're totally secure in your lips! Why are mine such a funny shape?!*


Funny lip shape rant aside, another new favourite is Sierra for £6.50, another of the matte range. This is a browny, corally nude, which I usually wouldn't go for, but I love pairing this with a brown smoky eye, and I even wore this out for dinner on Valentine's.

Sierra

I think this would suit paler skin, or those with yellow undertones. Unlike the others, this one isn't very versatile - I'm surprised I like it on myself! I really like the name too. I'm not going to lie, that's why I bought it. Sometimes gambles pay off!


The last two shades are really similar. This is Eden, which I thought was a dark nudey colour. Nope. It's bright red. Thanks, stupid online lip swatches. Luckily I do love a good red, but I probably wouldn't have bought it if I'd seen it in store!

Eden

 This is a bit of a darker red, but not quite as dark as my usual favourite red lip colours to wear. Nevertheless, it's a really nice matte red with great coverage and durability for the price!


Last we have the matte Perfect Red. As you can see, it's almost identical to Eden, but you can never have enough matte reds, right?

Perfect Red

This is more pink toned and a little brighter on the lips, so one or the other would suit everyone really well, depending what you're after!

I hope you've enjoyed today's post - it's come at the expense of my lips! If you'd like to see any other lipstick collection posts let me know. Which colours are your favourites from the Nyx line?

  4. I've attempted to a post before and including lip swatches but I chickened out and deleted all of the pictures as I hated my lips so don't worry you're not the only one! I wish more US brands would come over to England as I have quite fair skin so I always like to try lipsticks before I buy them! Toasted Marshmallow really suits you! 😀

  6. I think my favorite is Eden! So bright and lovely! From these swatches, the formula looks really shiny and moisturizing. I'd been hesitant on getting their lipsticks before, but might go pick up a few shades now!

  11. Toasted marshmallow is a lush colour! I'm not much of a lipgloss fan because of the wind and hair situation but always love how they look on. I'm yet to try any of their lipsticks either but I'm well convinced now that I need them all. Wish they were easier to get! I have two liquid mattes and they're amazing x
