Today I'd like to feature a selection of NYX lipsticks and glosses. Not long ago, NYX was only available here in Australia, on poorly stocked stands, so everyone was excited when the brand was also made available in Priceline. And as a matter of fact, Priceline now stocks some products exclusively!

Now onto the lipsticks…

Everyone has been raving about the NYX Butter Lipsticks, which feel so (buttery!) soft and light on the lips and have a good colour payoff and leaves a nice sheen on the lips too. They are easy to apply,and just one swipe gives a decent colour, while another layer or two, gives even more colour. They last about 4 or so hours on the lips, all while they feel very comfortable to wear, almost like a lip balm.

I tried the shades Snow Cap, which is a nude shade and Lollies, a pale peachy-apricot shade, I am not personally that fond of nude or pale lips, so these shades are ideal for me, but as I really like the formula, and there are a massive 22 colours in the range, I'm definitely going to get my hands on a few of the darker shades.

Then there's the NYX Butter Gloss, which has a lovely soft and lightweight formula, that also feels so lovely on the lips, and unlike many other lipglosses, this one isn't sticky! And for a lipgloss, it has a surprisingly good pigmentation and colour payoff with a nice glossy sheen too. I tried the shade Strawberry Parfait which is a lovely fuchsia pink shade.

The next in line is the NYX Lip Cream in Simply Pink, which is a chubby style over sized lip crayon - and always loving lip crayons, I immediately fell in love with this one too. The pointed tip makes it easy to apply on the go, and it has a very pigmented look with just one swipe. It is soft and creamy (as the name suggests!), but the wear could be a little better, although I suspect that darker shades might be. The shade Simply Pink is a medium cool pink shade.

Then there's the NYX Lip Smacking Fun Colours, which is gives light to medium coverage with a frosty sheen. It is very soft and goes on smoothly on the lips, but sadly doesn't stay put for long. The shade Castle is a pale purple, which is not really a shade that I'd pick myself, but it is surprisingly wearable. It is a lovely lipstick, also considering the low price point, but personally I prefer the look, feel and wear of the Lip Butter.

Finally, there's the NYX High Voltage Lipstick, which comes in a skinny twist up tube. Another soft and smooth, and also with a full pigmentation in a single swipe. It leaves the lips feeling soft and moisturised, and with a nice sheen, and if you leave it for a few moments to dry, it lasts on the lips for a few hours, while still leaving the lips feeling comfortable. The shade 'Sweet' is a slightly dusty pink colour, that's very wearable.

Lip Smacking Fun Colour in Castle,
Lip Cream in Simply Pink, High Voltage Lipstick in Sweet, 
and Butter Gloss in Strawberry Parfait

So there you go, a selection of lipsticks and glosses from NYX, and I dare say something for every taste. Apart from the purple Lip Smacking Fun Colours (which may just be the due to the shade), I really find it difficult to pick favourites amongst these, as seriously, they are all lovely in their own right, and especially considering they are so budget friendly too - so I will certainly be checking out the ranges and look to add a few darker shades to my collection.
