Review: Nyx Lip Glosses

Hi Ladies! 

So I went on a Nyx lip gloss craze in December and January. I had originally purchased two Mega Shine Lip Glosses in Tea Rose and Sponge Cake and was really eager to try more colors and other lip products. Below I will be reviewing and swatching the types and shades that I purchased.

So, I thought it would be a good idea to purchase this trial kit that you can purchase in either "Naturals" or "Pinks". There are 5 different types of Nyx lip glosses in this kit: Butter Gloss, Mega Shine Lip Gloss, Pump It Up Lip Plumper, Soft Matte Lip Cream, and Xtreme Lip Cream. Each lip product ranges from $5.00-$6.00 each so for $20.00 for 5 it was a great deal.

After trying these out, I was really happy I got this kit! I really liked 3 of the 5 lip products (Butter Gloss, Mega Shine Lip Gloss, and Matte Lip Cream). I haven't tried the lip plumper since I'm not huge on those. The Xtreme Lip Cream was VERY glossy and not sticky. I think I just didn't like the color on my lips as it was very nude and made me look blah. It may look better on someone else. I am willing to try this lip product in another color.

Since I have already tried Tea Rose and Sponge Cake in the Mega Shine Lip Glosses I decided that I wanted to try more. I felt that Sponge Cake wasn't really pigmented due to the glitter in the coloring. The Tea Rose was much more pigmented which is why I decided to get this specific kit. This lip kit comes with 3 Mega Shine Lip Glosses and these are also two color picks for these "Kiss The Stars" and "Love Struck". I chose this one because the colors looked like they would be more pigmented ( since Love Struck has 2 shimmers and this one only had one). I really liked all 3 colors but like the darker two best.

Here are some more Mega Shine Lip Glosses that I have.

Here are the swatches of all the Mega Shine Lip Glosses:

without flash

1. Perfect 2. Gold Pink 3. Sponge Cake 4.Dolly Pink 5.Beige 6. Perfect 7. Tea Rose 8. Natural

Here are the Softe Matte Lip Creams:

1. Antwerp 2. Stockholm

I really thought that these colors dried beautifully. The only problem is that my lips got dry very quickly. I hate this because I LOVED that matte look that they gave. I will still wear these and probably purchase more once I try to solve the drying problem.

Here is a swatch of the Xtreme Lip Cream

in Natural

As I said above and as you can see the gloss is very shiny and it is also thick. The color just didn't do anything for me.
Here are the Butter Glosses:

I liked these Butter Glosses a lot too. They are not as pigmented as the Mega Shine Lip Glosses but the brighter colors can we worn alone without a lipstick underneath. I really love the creaminess of these.

1. Creme Brulee 2. Eclair 3. Apple Strudel 3. Peaches and Cream

Here is a swatch of the Pump It Up Limp Plumper

in Kim

This color is a little light for my linking. I would probably use it over a nude lipstick.

I recently purchased the two more lip products: Matte Lipstick and the new Butter Lipstick.

Here are the lipsticks:

1. Matte Lipstick in Angel 2. Butter Lipstick in Fireball

These colors look the same finish but the first is really a matte. I should have taken a picture without the flash. I really liked both lipsticks. I had the same problem with the matte lipstick that I had with the matte lip creams. It dried my lips. The butter lipstick was super glossy and had great color. I was a little disappointed when I was at Ulta because the whole line was wiped out and the only colors left was this coral in Fireball and a dark purple in Hunk (which I wish I got). I do love the coral but as you see, I grabbed two very similar colors. The Angel is more pink while the Fireball is coral. I will definitely be going back for more Butter Lipsticks.

Here are some of the lip products on my lips:

Top Left: Nyx Butter Lipstick in Firebal Top Right: Nyx Matte Lipstick in Angel
Bottom Left: Nyx Butter Gloss in Peaches & Cream Bottom Right: Nyx Butter Gloss in Eclair

Here is a picture of me wearing the Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee.
