Brand Breakdown : NYX Lip Products – A Comparison and Review

The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Brand Breakdown NYX Lip Products Slim Pencil Round Lipstick Wicked Lippie Macaron Matte High Voltage Butter Gloss Liquid Suede Soft Matte Cream Glam

NYX is a brand I have been keeping a close eye on for years. Despite it once being available only online for those of us residing in Ireland, it  was a brand that cropped up often in my YouTube subscriptions and people seemed to have only good things to say. Now it is much more widely available in pharmacies nationwide and has recently made its way on to the Boots website. So I thought I would do a breakdown post, sharing my collection and perhaps inspiring a cheeky purchase or two. It can be difficult to gauge what you think of a product without seeing it with your own eyes and swatching it on your hand, so hopefully this post will be informative enough to help you out if you don’t live near a stockist.

 NYX Slim Lip Pencils

The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos NYX Slim Lip Pencils 810 Natural 852 Pumpkin 857 Nude Beige 860 Peekaboo Neutral

It took me a while to branch into the realm of NYX’s lip pencils. It seemed every time I visited a stand, all of the neutral shades were sold out. Then one day I stumbled upon a fully stocked NYX stand and finally got to give them a go. I instantly fell for their hard yet non-dragging formula which means achieving precision is a breeze.

NYX Slim Lip Pencil 810 Natural The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos

810 Natural is a pinky-brown nude that is ideal for adding a little extra definition to your lips or making them look slightly bigger if you’re a fan of overlining.

NYX Slim Lip Pencil 810 Natural on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos

I have been obsessed with these easy to wear neutral lip liners lately and have built up quite the collection. Most mornings it is a toss up between this and a Mac one and often this wins.

The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos NYX Slim Lip Pencil 810 Natural on the lips

If you don’t have any neutral liners in your collection or, like me, you adore them and wear them daily, Natural is a staple shade.

The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos NYX Slim Lip Pencil 852 Pumpkin
852 Pumpkin is a shimmering orange-red. It is one of the very few lip pencils I own that isn’t matte but the shimmer definitely adds something a little different and would be beautiful worn alone.

The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos NYX Slim Lip Pencil 852 Pumpkin on the lips

I am not usually a fan of orange-toned lips on myself but looking at these photographs may have just changed my mind. I was sent this shade and would probably never have chosen it for myself when out shopping but it is one I can see others falling for.

NYX Slim Lip Pencil 852 Pumpkin on the lips

You can see here how it is perfect with an otherwise neutral look to add a little pop of colour without being extremely bold or outrageous. It makes for an ideal fresh spring look or could be one for those who are weary of branching into bolder lip colours.

NYX Slim Lip Pencil 857 Nude Beige

857 Nude Beige is pretty self-descriptive. Again I’m sort of collecting these neutral shades at the moment and this is another staple colour.

The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos NYX Slim Lip Pencil 857 Nude Beige on the lips

It has no warmth to it and because of that I have found that it can transform whatever lipstick is worn on top of it – either by neutralising it or making it appear more cool-toned.

NYX Slim Lip Pencil 857 Nude Beige on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos

It is the best lip pencil for wearing under all the greige shades I’ve been loving lately such as Lime Crime’s Cashmere. It is another one that makes overlining your lips and making them look fuller really simple.

NYX Slim Lip Pencil 860 Peekaboo Neutral The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos

860 Peekaboo Neutral is a beige pink and the perfect my lips but better shade. This is similar to Natural but is more pink and less brown.

NYX Slim Lip Pencil 860 Peekaboo Neutral on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos

Peekaboo Neutral is the most similar to my own natural lip colour and looks very flattering worn alone.

The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos NYX Slim Lip Pencil 860 Peekaboo Neutral on the lips

It is another neutral staple that I can’t recommend enough.

The formula is non-drying and while I suffer from dry lips so always pair mine with some sort of lipstick on top, I would say most people could get away with wearing these alone. They are very comfortable and pigmented, gliding easily over the lips but still hard enough to get a precise lip line. There are fifty shades to choose from according to the US NYX website although there are only fifteen available on Stauntons where they retail for €4.99 each and ten available on the McCabes Pharmacy site where they cost €4.25. Even though Boots stock NYX now, they don’t seem to have these. I picked mine up in Hickey’s Pharmacy in The Square, Tallaght although they don’t have an online store.

NYX Matte LipsticksNYX Matte Lipstick

I picked up two of these matte lipsticks on a whim quite a while ago just so I could try out something else by the brand. I wasn’t expecting to fall so hard for them – in particular the shade Alabama which has become an absolute go-to for me when I’m reaching for a dark red shade.

NYX Matte Lipstick 07 Alabama The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos

07 Alabama is a vampy dark red and the type of colour I had been searching for for so long. This is an Autumn Winter staple.

NYX Matte Lipstick 07 Alabama on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

Alabama is a true red shade that doesn’t lean red or blue and is slightly darker than your average. I love to pair it with a purple or black liner at the edges to create a real vampy ombre lip with it.

NYX Matte Lipstick 07 Alabama on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

It is one of those reds that I believe to be quite universally flattering regardless of skin tone and it has the added benefit of making teeth look whiter. This is one of my most worn NYX lipsticks and definitely one of the most worn reds that I have.

The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos NYX Matte Lipstick 11 Tea Rose

11 Tea Rose is an unusual mauve pink. I picked it up thinking it would be a pretty bland neutral shade but its cool tone adds a little quirkiness to it. I am pretty sure I don’t have a dupe for this in my collection.

The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland NYX Matte Lipstick 11 Tea Rose on the lips

I don’t usually go for pink lip colours, particularly now that I have red tones in my hair but I think this is neutral enough for me to get away with.

NYX Matte Lipstick 11 Tea Rose on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

If you are looking for a true every day staple shade, I highly recommend this one. It is neutral enough that it doesn’t stand out but is just different enough that you may still get a compliment on it.

Despite the matte title, these lipsticks aren’t drying in the slightest. They do have the staying power of a matte though and that is one of the reasons that I love Alabama for nights out because I don’t have to worry about topping it up. These are my favourite NYX lipstick formula and I will definitely be picking up more shades in future!

There are thirty three colours available on the US website (which doesn’t ship internationally) but thirty of those are on the Boots website for €9.25 each or seventeen are available from Cara Pharmacy for the same price. Both Boots and Cara charge €5 for delivery or it is free to collect the item in store.

NYX High Voltage Lipsticks

The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos NYX High Voltage Lipstick

These are one of NYX’s more recent releases and while I thought the name was cool, the bullet didn’t really appeal to me. I like a good old fashioned lipstick shape. However curiosity got the better of me and I did a bit of Googling. When I saw Stone, it was fate. I just had to have it. At the time, Mac had just released their lipstick in Stone and it was constantly sold out (I STILL haven’t been able to get my hands on it!) so this seemed like a close alternative.

NYX High Voltage Lipstick 13 Stone The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos

13 Stone is a nude beige. For the longest time, I thought this could be a dupe for Lime Crime’s Cashmere but it was only because I paired it with the Slim Lip Pencil in Nude Beige that it looked so cool toned.

The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland NYX High Voltage Lipstick 13 Stone on the lips

In reality it is more of a straight up nude that has just enough beige to it where I don’t look corpse like.

NYX High Voltage Lipstick 13 Stone on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

While it is pretty, I will continue to wear it with the Nude Beige liner to make it a little different as it is a little plain for me. Lovers of a nude lip will probably fall for this one especially with its gorgeous sheen finish.

What I am not crazy about is the formula. This glides on to the lips and has a lot of slip to it. While it feels lovely and creamy, I find the wear time poor and when it does wear off, it can leave my lips a little dry. I deal with it to wear this amazing colour but I wouldn’t rush out to buy more shades in the High Voltage family.There are twenty two shades available on the US site and all of those are available on the Boots and McCabes websites where they cost €7.75 each. (McCabes also charge €5 shipping). I noticed they’re on sale on the US site so wonder if they will soon be discontinued.

NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipsticks

The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick Electra B52 Strawberry Milk Lala Power

I actually avoided picking up any of the round lipsticks for quite a while because they come in the most nondescript packaging and are the cheapest lipstick offering from the brand. Because of that, I sort of assumed they would be the basic budget option. I was wrong!

NYX Round Lipstick 513 Electra

513 Electra is a true red which I was sent just before Christmas and which I got so much wear out of over the festive season. It is stunning.

The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland NYX Round Lipstick 513 Electra on the lips

I never usually opt for straight up reds, preferring darker, vampier shades but this is such a classic pin up shade.

NYX Round Lipstick 513 Electra on the lips

I think my favourite aspect is that glossy finish. I am a woman obsessed.

The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos NYX Round Lipstick 565 B52

565 B52 is a grey-toned pink that I picked up when I was looking for an everyday neutral shade to wear to work. This is ideal for throwing on if you have gone a little colourful/overboard in the eye makeup department as it adds a neutral, glossy colour to the lip that isn’t overpowering.

The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

I get a lot of wear out of this one and while I think it is a pretty non-descript colour, I had a lot of girls in work asking me what it was.

NYX Round Lipstick 565 B52 on the lips

If you’re not a fan of bold lip colours and prefer things that are more toned down, you can’t go wrong with this one.

NYX Round Lipstick 595 Strawberry Milk The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos

595 Strawberry Milk is a light baby pink. I had a brief love affair with a Wet n Wild lipstick that was a similar pink milkshake colour to this which I believe is what led me to buy this one.

The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland NYX Round Lipstick 595 Strawberry Milk on the lips

I don’t really know what I was thinking as I really don’t like these pastel shades on me. I have seen them look well on others but not on me. I don’t think they work with my pale skin.

The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland NYX Round Lipstick 595 Strawberry Milk on the lips

This is one of the few NYX lip products I own that I just don’t like and will not wear. I’m sure we’ve all had one of those moments where we pick up something that is just totally wrong for us.

It may also be worth noting that I find this lip colour is sheerer than the rest and settles into lip lines a little. A word of warning if you’re opting for one of the lighter shades in this formula.

NYX Round Lipstick 612 Lala The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos

612 Lala is a plum-pink and one that is neutral while still being a little quirky. I have absolutely no idea what happened to my poor bullet. I opened the lipstick to take this photo and it was like that!

The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland NYX Round Lipstick 612 Lala on the lips

Lala is another people pleaser which is work-appropriate yet still a little different.

NYX Round Lipstick 612 Lala on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

It actually looks really nice with a neutral eye like I have in the picture as that plum tone makes it pop and adds some interest to the look.

NYX Round Lipstick 629 Power

629 Power is a mauve-pink. Okay, it is time for me to admit that I have a thing for quirky pinks.

NYX Round Lipstick 629 Power on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

Power is definitely one that I don’t have a dupe for and the way it leans slightly lavender is so pretty!

NYX Round Lipstick 629 Power on the lips

I am a huge fan of this one although I know Aisling from Total Makeup Addict claims it looks completely different on her than it does on me! This probably won’t be one for everyone.

These are sometimes referred to as the Extra Creamy Round Lipsticks which is a spot on description. These are so intensely creamy and glide on to the lips like butter. They all have that gorgeous glossy finish. Usually the creamier and glossier the lipstick, the shorter the wear time but with these, that isn’t the case. I often wear these to work and while I top them up after eating (more out of habit than necessity) they continue to look great throughout the day even if the sheen dulls a bit. These are another of my favourite NYX formulas!

There are ninety shades of these available on the US website with a whopping fifty nine of those on the Boots website at only €5.75 each. I can’t seem to find them on any other Irish websites but I have picked all of mine up from various NYX stands I have visited so they are out there.

Macaron Lippies

NYX Macaron Lipstick 05 Violet The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos

There was a major buzz online when NYX’s Macaron Lippies were released, mainly because it was one of the first times a drugstore brand had released a range of out-there colours. I love a good bold lipstick and if you’re in the same boat as me, you’re going to want to check out this line.

The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos NYX Macaron Lippie 05 Violet

 05 Violet is a true light purple colour and the only shade in this range that I picked up. I can get a little carried away when makeup shopping so I had to take a cold hard look at myself and realistically ask myself if I need a lipstick in every colour of the rainbow.

NYX Macaron Lippie 05 Violet on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

Despite my brain saying of course I did, I ended up with just this one. Okay I probably won’t be wearing it to Tesco any time but it is just so fun!

NYX Macaron Lippie 05 Violet on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

If anything though, it is a reason to find an excuse to wear it.

The formula of these is super soft. So soft, in fact, that when twisting the bullet up and down, some of the product has been dragged off the bullet. It is pretty messy but the pigmentation is phenomenal, especially considering the unique colour. There is a glossiness to the finish and it is really comfortable on the lips.

There are twelve shades of these available on the NYX website but only three are on the Boots website where they cost €7.75 each. I can’t seem to find them anywhere else although you may be able to find a UK or European website.

Wicked Lippies 

NYX Wicked Lippies 01 Betrayal 04 Wrath 12 Envy

Wicked Lippies didn’t take off the way the Macaron ones did and in terms of colour, I think these are much nicer as they all have a unique metallic finish.

NYX Wicked Lippie 01 Betrayal The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos

01 Betrayal is a high shine metallic royal purple and my younger Goth self would have died for this lipstick.

NYX Wicked Lippie 01 Betrayal on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

Even if you’re recoiling in horror at the thought of rocking a deep purple lipstick, you have to admit that the colour is just so beautiful!

NYX Wicked Lippie 01 Betrayal on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

I would definitely wear this to a gig or festival exactly like it is here – with an otherwise quite neutral look. Am I mad? Or just madly in love with the shade?

NYX Wicked Lippie 04 Wrath The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos

04 Wrath is the most unusual warm brown with a gold metallic sheen that shifts orange/peach in the light. I was sent this one and it is definitely one that I would never in a million years have picked out for myself.

NYX Wicked Lippie 04 Wrath on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

I am not fond of the colour on my face as I think it pulls to brown but I think this would be absolutely incredible on very dark skin.

NYX Wicked Lippie 04 Wrath on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

Although I don’t like it on me, that close-up photo on my lips is so stunning. Huge kudos to NYX for creating a completely individual colour.

NYX Wicked Lippie 12 Envy The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos

12 Envy is a high shine metallic royal blue and I have a total thing for blue lipsticks! In case you can’t tell from my logo…

NYX Wicked Lippie 12 Envy on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

I know most people (myself included) would have a hard time going outside wearing one but I think they can look so flattering. We wear blue-toned reds so there is definitely something there!

NYX Wicked Lippie 12 Envy on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

I have seen quite a number of brands do blue lipsticks lately like Jeffree Star and Kat Von D but I think the finish on this one makes it an absolute stunner, even if it is confined between the walls of my bedroom.

The Wicked Lippies have quite a lot of slip to them and I found that they needed a few layers to reach maximum opacity, particularly with Envy. Despite the metallic finish, they don’t contain glitter so don’t feel gritty on the lips. Instead they’re creamy and comfortable to wear. There were twelve shades released with eleven of those available from the Boots website at €7.75 a piece.

Soft Matte Lip Creams

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream 06 Istanbul 10 Monte Carlo 20 Copenhagen The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos

Soft Matte Lip Cream are having a bit of a moment, at least in the circles I move in. The girls I work with seem to be collecting every shade and so I had to get in on the action for myself.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream 06 Istanbul

06 Istanbul is a pink. I thought that this would be a little more nude or beige than it actually is but it is definitely a soft pink.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream 06 Istanbul on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

As I mentioned already, I don’t veer towards pink shades since changing my hair colour but this is still subtle enough for me to get away with.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream 06 Istanbul on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

I have been pairing this with darker, more dramatic eye looks so as not to take away from them.

The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream 10 Monte Carlo

10 Monte Carlo is a pinky red.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream 10 Monte Carlo on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

The pink tone adds a lightness to this red which I think makes it accessible to those who fear a full on red lip.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream 10 Monte Carlo on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

I was sent this shade but I love a good red so it is one I would have chosen for myself anyway. Definitely one to consider.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream 20 Copenhagen The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos

20 Copenhagen is a darker, morepurple-toned red.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream 20 Copenhagen on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger PhotoSwatch Swatches Photos Ireland

I was slightly disappointed with this one, to be honest, because I thought it would be a little vampier and more dramatic.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream 20 Copenhagen on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger PhotoSwatch Swatches Photos Ireland

It also applies a little unevenly which is quite apparent in this photo. There is one darker shade called Transylvania that I may need to try instead.

Despite these being very popular at the moment, I’m not actually a huge fan of the formula. They dry down to a soft matte finish – almost like a dull satin – and are comfortable on the lips but I found when reapplying the colour throughout the day, it could crack and after about four reapplications after lunch etc., it looked really scummy. I was also disappointed with the pay off and how uneven Copenhagen was so be weary if buying darker shades for that reason.

There are thirty four shades of these on the NYX website including some crazy blues and purples that I’ve never seen before but only twenty two more neutral shades are available on the Boots website for €7.75 each or the Littlewoods website for €11. (That’s some mark up!)

Liquid Suedes

NYX Liquid Suede

Liquid Suedes are one of NYX’s latest releases (over here anyway) and they are being advertised heavily on the Boots website at the moment. I assumed they would be a liquid to matte lipstick based on the name but they are more of a cream finish. They also take quite a while to dry down.

NYX Liquid Suede 01 Stone Fox The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos

01 Stone Fox is a true cement grey. I know, yeah, am I mad? Why did I buy this colour? I actually love it.

NYX Liquid Suede 01 Stone Fox on the lips

It’s totally unwearable in most every day situations but just look at how unique it is. I’m a marketer’s dream.

NYX Liquid Suede 01 Stone Fox on the lips

What impressed me most about this is the pigmentation. It can’t be easy making a grey lipstick.

NYX Liquid Suede 12 Vintage The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos

12 Vintage is a burgundy with a hint of film noir about it. It is another wonderfully unusual colour, although this one you may actually wear.

NYX Liquid Suede12 Vintage on the lips

I can honestly say I don’t own anything like it. The burgundy leans a little brown which really gives it that vintage feel.

NYX Liquid Suede12 Vintage on the lips

If you’re a fan of a darker, vampier lip, I highly recommend giving this one a go.

The formula of these is comfortable and as I mentioned, doesn’t dry down completely matte. If you were tossing up between the Soft Matte Lip Creams and these, I would definitely steer you in this direction instead.

There are twelve shades available, all of which are on the Boots website for €9.25 a piece

Butter Gloss

NYX Butter Gloss 02 Eclair 07 Tiramisu The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos

I am not a huge fan of lip gloss but there was such a buzz surrounding the NYX Butter Glosses that I simply had to try them for myself to see what all the fuss was about.

NYX Butter Gloss 02 Eclair The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos

02 Eclair is a soft baby pink and a very girly shade.

NYX Butter Gloss 02 Eclair on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

I’m not a pink person but I usually pair it with a darker neutral pink liner so this adds just a high shine finish.

NYX Butter Gloss 02 Eclair on the lips

It’s pretty and a great every day shade if you like to keep things simple.

NYX Butter Gloss 07 Tiramisu The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos

07 Tiramisu is more of a beige nude gloss.

NYX Butter Gloss 07 Tiramisu on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

This is more the colour of gloss that I usually go for on the rare occasions I do opt for a gloss.

NYX Butter Gloss 07 Tiramisu on the lips The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

I pair this with one of the NYX nude lip pencils for an understated but super glossy mouth.

The formula of these is beautiful with a cushiony feel on the lips without any stickiness or tackiness. They wear well too because they are a thicker gloss formula. Despite not being a gloss girl, I do find myself reaching for these quite often. My only issue is that because they are quite sheer, the shades aren’t too dissimilar when paired with a lip liner so I probably won’t pick up any more shades for as long as I have these two.

There are thirty four shades available with twenty two of them on the Boots website for €7 each or eight on Sam McCauley’s and there is also an Intense range (€7.75) with more opaque colours which I haven’t tried for myself yet.

Glam Lip Gloss

NYX Glam Lip Gloss Aqua Luxe 02 Do The Hustle The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos

02 Do The Hustle is a sparkling gold glitter suspended in a clear gloss.

NYX Glam Lip Gloss Aqua Luxe 02 Do The Hustle

I wouldn’t normally go for a sparkly lip gloss but I was sent this before Christmas and I honestly got so much wear out of it over the party season, particularly over Electra.

NYX Glam Lip Gloss Aqua Luxe 02 Do The Hustle

The glitter particles aren’t large or obvious so it just adds a beautiful sheen to your lips. The formula isn’t as thick as the Butter Gloss so it is ideal for layering over other lipsticks. I probably wouldn’t pick up any more shades but it is handy to have one glittery lip top coat in your arsenal.

There were sixteen shades of these released with only six of them available on the Boots website for ten euro each.

NYX Liquid Suede Glam Lip Gloss Butter Soft Matte Cream Wand Comparison The Rebel Lipstick The Glamour Nazi Irish Beauty Blog Blogger Photo Swatch Swatches Photos Ireland

For comparison’s sake, here are the wands from the four glosses and cream lipsticks. The Butter Gloss and Soft Matte Lip Cream have the exact same standard doe foot applicator. The Glam Lip Gloss applicator is quite straight which is ideal for dabbing it in the centre of the lips or wherever you fancy. The Liquid Suede applicator looks the strangest of the lot but I actually found it quite easy to work with so there isn’t a dud among them.

Overall NYX are an incredible brand especially when it comes to lip products! These are all the types I have but there are even more out there that I have yet to try. Hopefully this helped you if you were tossing up between the many choices.
