Ever since the first time I tried a NYX lipstick I fell head over heels. I remember back to my first ever one which was a Soft Matte Lip Cream in London, and it is still a favourite now and I have two backups. For a drugstore lipstick line there are so many shades and finishes to choose from. Want to delve into my NYX lipstick wardrobe?

As it was my first NYX love and is still a current go to in my entire collection, I must start with their range of Soft Matte Lip Creams. This range is perfect for everyday use, from its shade range to formula. These particular lip products from NYX aren’t the most pigmented, usually when it comes to the nudes, but they do give good colour payoff after two swipes. The darker shades always give instant colour payoff however. The formula is just so buttery and soft, like no other matte lip product I’ve used before. They last around 4-6 hours without touch up, which I find amazing for the price and I didn’t expect it to last so long when I first tried them. My favourite shades from my collection are London, Abu Dhabi, Morocco, Monte Carlo and Copenhagen.

Above Shades L-R:

Istanbul – a light soft pink

London – a true brown nude

Abu Dhabi – a nude beige with rosy undertones

Cannes – a muted mauve

For a pigmented but velvety finish lip I love the Suede’s. I only had one of these in my collection cheap doxycycline tablets until I rediscovered it and rekindled my love for it. My first shade was Soft Spoken, which is a really pretty nude for everyday wear and a good dupe for Kat Von D’s Lolita. The formula is even softer than the Soft Matte’s but a little more fluid, and the finish is stunning. Since rediscovering my love for them I picked up the shades Vintage and Cherry Skies, and the rest of the range includes more daring shades like green and deep purples that I’d love to be able to pull off. This is a great range for those who love a daring lip colour.

Above Shades L-R:

Soft Spoken – a warm toned nude

Vintage – a deep brown/wine

Cherry Skies – a deep rude

My favourite formula from NYX lip products has to go to the Lip Lingerie collection. I do love a good matte liquid lipstick, and for the price these are incredible. The formula can be a little drying, but I always make sure to apply a lip balm before applying. Although they can be drying, they last for a good 8 hours and never seem to crack on me. What I do find is the middle wearing off a while after I’ve been eating or drinking, but that’s only normal for every other liquid lipstick I’ve tried. I really need to add more shades to my stash!

Bedtime Flirt – a pretty soft pink/nude

Ruffle Trim – a cinnamon pink
