As soon as a couple of fellow Brighton bloggers mentioned there was a new NYX stand in Boots (Brighton) I just had to check it out for myself! I’ve heard a lot of good things about NYX mainly on American blogs/videos (being that it’s an American brand) especially about their soft matte lip creams which are their version of liquid lipsticks, so I knew these were the first products I wanted to try from the brand.
As I approached the makeup aisles of Boots, it wasn’t hard to spot where the new stand was as there was a swarm of girls swatching every NYX makeup products in sight. I edge my way into where the liquid lipsticks were and the first one the catch my eye was Stockholm – I’m a real sucker for a nude lip colour! I’m also a huge fan of a purple berry shade so also had to pick up Copenhagen!
First impressions – I love them! The formulation is soft and mousse like so they feel really nice when you apply them to your lips, feeling comfortable without feeling too dry or sticky. Eventunally it does feel a little drying on the lips as matte lipsticks generally do but no where near as some other liquid lipsticks I’ve tried in the past. On the flipside to this however, I do find they don’t last as long on the lips. Other liquid lipsticks I’ve tried in the past such as The Hour Glass liquid lipsticks lasts for hours on end, the NYX liquid lipsticks…not so much. They do last a good couple of hours though before you need reapplying, and at £5.50 you really don’t mind. All and all for the price, NYX liquid lipsticks are fantastic!
Have you tried the NYX liquid lipsticks before? What is your favourite shade? And what would you recommend trying next from NYX?
