NYX has such a wide range of makeup – a wide range that extends into their lipsticks. Liquid, cream, mattes, glossy, NYX has it all. And when I realized how much of their collection I had, I wanted to talk about it. Specifically the ones that I love the most.
So get ready for some awkward swatch pics as we dive into which NYX lipsticks (and colors) are my top picks – so far. 😉
NYX BUTTER LIPSTICK IN LIFEGUARD
NYX’s Butter lipstick range is actually what first brought me into buying lipsticks from NYX. I had always had chapped, dry lips and “butter” completely appealed to me (how could it not?). Lifeguard is a smooth, deep red that is better suited for the night, but still wearable during the day and feels comfortable on the lips. Although I tend to find most lipsticks long wearing on myself, I can see how this would be quick to fade after eating, drinking, etc since it is like your traditional lipsticks.
NYX INTENSE BUTTER GLOSS IN CHOCOLATE CREPE
I had no idea this range existed until I was in some no name store and happened to be swatching all of the lipsticks I could find because every color looked the same. I found this color by accident, but I fell in love with it as soon as I swatched it on my arm. Even after I put it down and was trying to find others, I kept being drawn to this color. It’s between a nude brown and a pink that I think can be flattering on most, if not all, skin tones. As the name suggests, it’s incredibly pigmented with a glossy finish. Smells good too, although I can see how some might be put off by it if you’re not into fragranced lip products; I’m usually not into it either, but this is one you don’t really notice. I would say that the color is long lasting, but the gloss will wear after time.
NYX LINGERIE LIQUID LIPSTICK IN EXOTIC
Exotic is actually a very similar color to Chocolate Crepe, but more on the pinkish side and without the glossy finish. Of course, the Lingerie liquid lipsticks are no newcomer and well-loved by many. Although slightly drying on the lips, being a matte liquid lipstick, they have a great range of beautiful colors – I also have Ruffle Trim, but I prefer the color of Exotic on my lips.
NYX SOFT MATTE LIP CREAM IN BERLIN
I had such a craze with NYX’s Soft Matte Lip Creams, but if I had to narrow it down to one color, Berlin is perfect. Definitely my brownest shade that I own (not just in NYX, but my whole collection) it works well for both night and day, casual or dressy. Being closer to the brown end of the spectrum, I find it unique, which is why I bought it in the first place.
NYX SUEDE MATTE LIP LINER IN WHIPPED CAVIAR
I first saw these in a YouTube video and I loved the way they looked so the next time I was at Target I picked up two colors which I thought would work well with various shades from my collection. My first impression of this was that it smelled very pencil-y, although by no means does it detract from the product itself. Whipped Caviar is a very pink color, but still works well meshing with a lot of lipsticks. Being a matte liner, I mostly have to be careful putting this on after chapstick, as I find it’s harder to get pigmentation and general wear out of it. While you can wear this on its own, it doesn’t have a lot of wear and it can be drying depending on how much you layer on to get color.
