All About The Lips, by Nyx

Hello, my lovelies!

I am super excited about this post. Do you ever have that feeling where you've taken some photos for your blog and you're like 'Yes. My photos are on point'. I'm feeling like that and I am in love with these products!

Eeep, let me tell you more!

So, if you've visited the Boots website anytime in the last few months, you're likely to have seen that they now stock Nyx. Now, before recently I'd never owned a Nyx product before but had seen so much hype about their products on Instagram. This is when my love affair with Nyx began, I suppose. Onto my birthday wishlist they went, and thanks to a couple of my friends I finally had my hands on some!

The products I've got are:
  • NYX Butter Lip Balm in shade Biscotti
  • NYX High voltage lipstick in the shade Flutter Kisses
  • NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in shade Soft Spoken

Now. I have to say so far I am super happy with these! I haven't been able to use them much yet because of work, but eep they're so nice!

At this time of year, you can never be without lip balm. I like the Butter Lip Balm because it's got a slight tint to it and really works. It doesn't feel too sticky or anything, and you forget it's there. It's a great for a subtle bit of colour day to day. I've worn this the most so far.

Next on my list, the high voltage lipstick. This is a really good slightly darker than nude colour for me. It's so easy to apply because it's quite small, and feels really moisturizing. That's something I'd point put about all of these products, they don't feel drying at all. It seems to last reasonably well, but I did eat a burrito so it took a bit of a battering. However, it did fade well. You know sometimes if a lipstick rubs off you get that really horrible edge round your lips like you've applied a lip liner that's way too dark and nothing else? This doesn't do that. It's a nice even fade.

Last, but definitely not least, the Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick. This is a lovely matte shade, I haven't really had a colour like this before and it's so nice! Again, it doesn't feel drying or anything, very moisturizing I think for this kind of product. It comes with a doe foot applicator and it's pretty easy to apply, and, if you've got a steady hand I'd say you can definitely get away without wearing a lip liner or anything. I find it's pretty pigmented, and can get away with one coat. It doesn't come out patchy or anything but I suppose if you wanted extra staying power you could apply another layer. But purely colour wise one coat is just fine. As for how long it lasts, I got through a hot chocolate and brownie plus a couple hours of chit chat before I felt I needed to top this up. Not bad I say, not bad.

Considering I'd never tried any products by Nyx before, I am very impressed. They're so reasonably priced and the colour choices in these lip products are great! I think I'll definitely be growing my collection. I'd quite like to try out some of their other products too, maybe eyes next?

Any of my close friends reading this, if you're ever wondering what to get me as a present, now you know!

I'm super excited to continue wearing these and I'll be sure to report back if I try any other Nyx products!
