2016 really was the year of the liquid lipsticks. It seemed like just about every single brand out there brought out a range of them, and the market was awash with masses of new colours, formulas and styles. Goodbye tube lipstick, hello liquid.

Despite the massive influx of new liquid lippies out there, NYX has remained my favourite brand for this particular type of makeup. At the beginning of 2016 I didn't own anything by NYX, but now I'm feeling pretty proud of my little collection. I find that their products are so long-lasting and well-pigmented that no other drugstore alternatives come near to my love for them. An added bonus is that they're also cruelty free. 

From bottom to top, the lipstick shades I have swatched are as follows: Lip Lingerie in Exotic, Liquid Suede in Stone Fox and Soft Matte Lip Creams in Buenos Aires, Morocco, Copenhagen and Moscow. As you can tell, I've gone for a broad range of colours in this little collection. Over the past year I've been experimenting with some fruit inspired makeup looks over on my YouTube, and so 'Moscow' and 'Buenos Aires' were purchased for those. 

Out of all of the types I've tried, the Lip Lingerie range has the greatest staying power on my lips. 'Exotic' is my go-to work liquid lipstick. It's a nude that appears only a little darker than my lips, and doesn't rub off after a cup of tea or two. The Soft Matte Lip Cream in Morocco, however, is my favourite pigment. It's such a bold, coral-y red that I can't get enough of. It makes me feel festive in Winter and bold in Summer. I am in love. 

Do you own any NYX lipsticks?

    1. I have them dotted about on my Instagram, but the shades look the same on my lips as on the swatches :)

  4. I'm always at the NYX section in my local Sephora but two of my girlfriends keep telling me their Soft Matte liquid lipsticks disappear wayyy too fast and are much too drying. I keep going just to eye their liquid lipsticks but have yet to take the plunge. What do you think? Should I try Soft Matte? Or should I try one from the other two ranges you mentioned here, for a starter? Any thought would be appreciated!

    1. I don't find them too drying, and they last most of the day. I think their liquid suede ones last a little better!

    1. It doesn't suit me as much as I would hope. They are really fab for the price!
