My NYX Lip Collection

I've been on a bit of a drugstore kick this week so I thought I'd do a post on all of my NYX lip products. After the brand landed in Boots a few months back I've been gradually buying more and more and now I have a pretty decent collection. Heads up, it's 99% neutrals. Who would've guessed?
Butter Gloss - £5
To start off I thought I'd talk about what are pretty much the only lip glosses I use nowadays. Even though the whole makeup loving world is still on the hunt for the perfect matte liquid lipstick, I'm starting to embrace the gloss. These Butter Glosses have a thick, creamy texture that glides onto the lips without feeling gloopy or overly sticky. My favourite shade is Tiramisu which is the perfect nude with just the right amount of pink and brown undertones. For something a bit deeper I love the colour Angel Food Cake. This is more of a 90s, mauve shade. I also have the colour Maple Blondie which is a true peachy-pink bubblegum. All of the glosses have good pigmentation but still offer the option to build up the intensity. They also smell delicious. You'll think you've got frosting on your lips!

Soft Matte Lip Cream - £5.50
I'd heard quite a few people talk about these lip creams but it wasn't until I saw The Anna Edit raving about them that I finally decided to try one for myself. I have to say most of the nude shades aren't really my cup of tea but the shade Stockholm is a different story. It's much more opaque than the glosses but it still has a creamy, almost mousse like formula which is super easy to apply. This has more of a peachy-brown undertone which can look a bit too orangey on me if I don't really work it in and apply a lip liner. 
It doesn't have the longest wear time or staying power but it's really comfortable on the lips and is a great option if you want something that's matte and moisturising at the same time. 

Lip Lingerie - £6.50
Speaking of matte products, these lip lingeries are my new go-to liquid lipsticks. I know I said I've moved on from this trend but every now and then only a super matte lip will do. They definitely have a dry texture on the lips but I don't mind as much as some people do. The first one I tried was Bedroom Flirt which is still my favourite. It's a mauve-brown shade which looks quite dark on me as I'm quite fair. They're really easy to apply and I can create a good shape with the applicator without having to use a lip liner. 
I also have the colour Exotic which if I were to re-name, I would call cherry cola. This is quite a warm red-y brown shade which is just stunning. Both of these have amazing staying power on me and I very rarely have to touch up. They're the ultimate liquid lipstick for those on a budget.

Mega Shine Lip Gloss - £4
I bought this for my Honeymoon as I wanted something that I could just throw on with some mascara and highlighter and not have to worry about it. Salsa is a very pretty everyday pink that looks gorgeous in the warmer months. It's not a sheer finish but it's not super opaque either. The formula isn't too sticky and it lasts for a good hour or so on me which is pretty standard for a gloss. For £4, you can't go wrong.

Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick - £6.50
This is quite a new discovery for me but so far I'm really liking it. The Liquid Suede range is designed to give vibrant colour with a matte finish which it definitely does. I have the shade Soft Spoken which is another 90s inspired shade. I know, I know, it's getting boring to me too. It's the last one I promise. This has a thick, velvety texture which is actually really easy to apply and comfortable to wear. I'll definitely be picking up some more of these!

So there you have my NYX Lip Product round up. What other shades do you think I need to try? Let me know!

Thank you so much for reading!
