The Six Reviews of Lipstick
like the 12 Days of Christmas, only way better. 

Reviewing everything NYX from lipstick, to lip cream to lipgloss! Hope you enjoy it!
I hope this brand is actually pronounced "Nicks" otherwise it really destroys my rhyme game. So even if it's not, pretend it is for me please.

I decided to review all NYX products because let's be honest, their lip products are absolutely fantastic. They are inexpensive, they have beautiful colors, and most of them last for a decent amount of wear. So, if you have any complaints about that, I have no words for you.


(MLS 07)
NYX Matte Lipstick: $6.00

Not exactly sure about this lipstick still. I've put it on twice, but still have not had the courage to wear it out. I bought it because I wanted some variety in color, but I'm not sure how I feel about this dark of a color with my fair features. That aside, it is still nice formula. It is very matte (as NYX promises) and has beautiful pigment. Personally, my lips can get very dry from lipsticks, and I find that this one can make my lips get drier faster. Because of the finish, there isn't any cream in this that can help with the dryness I'm prone too.

Overall, I would still definitely recommend this lipstick. I think it would look fantastic on someone with darker skin or someone very pale who wants to look a little vampy.


NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream $6.00

For some reason, there is a huge color disparity with this lip cream. What it looks like in the tube and on my lips is completely different. Honestly, I don't really care because I absolutely love this product. I never used a lip cream before, and now that I've tried this one I kind of want to buy every color. I love this product because it really stays in place. I don't have lipstick all over my water bottle or my coffee cup and I don't have any on my teeth (the only three reasons why lipstick can be my enemy). My lips get a tad dry after a couple hours of wear, but I just put a little chapstick on and then reapply. Reapplication isnt necessary very often with this product which is great.

I think this is my favorite out of the 6. A great color, a great texture, and long lasting and all for 6 bucks. I don't think I could ask for much else.


NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil $4.50

Not over how great this product is for $4.50.  Despite common belief on the NYX website... you CAN sharpen these pencils. What looks like plastic at the top is just a thin coating with wood underneath! My favorite part about this pencil is how creamy it is. So many lip pencils are incredibly dry and chalky. This one glides right on like butter. I personally don't even put anything over it, I just wear it as is. Sometimes I have a very difficult time putting lipstick on in a shape that doesn't look heinous. Since this is a pencil, it is much easier to control and get that perfect shape.

This is another one of those products that I now want to have in every color. NYX the things you do to my wallet.....


NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick $4.00

How is a lipstick this cheap SO GOOD? This lipstick is better than any drugstore lipstick I have ever bought (and they are getting in the $8-$10 range now). I think it might even be better than a lot of Sephora and MAC Lipsticks. I am obsessed with the color of this. Plum is very popular at the moment, and I think it's because it looks good on virtually anyone whether you are pale, medium, or dark skinned.

I'd say this lipstick normally lasts me about 4-6 hours most of the time. This particular color goes on pretty transparent, so I have to apply several layers. I  kind of like to apply my lipstick like that anyway, so that isn't really a negative for me. It's easier to hide your mistakes that way, right!?

Haute Melon

NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick $4.00

Another great $4 NYX lipstick. I was a little skeptical when I first bought this color, but I really wanted to try it. I'm happy I branched out a little bit! This color is a lot easier to pull off than I thought. I think it works best for ladies with yellow undertones since it's such an orangey red. I think this color would look great on darker skin tones, but if you are paler than me, I might pass on this one.

This lipstick also lasts about 4-6 hours. Also, it is still kind of transparent, just like Doll. I know some of you ladies might not like that, but I still think it's kind of nice. If you are new to lipstick, you will have a few chances to get it right rather than one swipe at full color.

Nude Peach

NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss $5.00

I have heard from person after person after person on the internet that this lip gloss is one of the best out there. I have tried to like lipgloss. I REALLY have, but I just don't think I can do it. Out of the ones I've tried, I dislike this one the least... I'm going to try to wear it.... maybe.

Despite me being a loather of lipgloss, I think this product could definitely work for a lot of you. The color is very nice. It is just a simple, natural peachy pink with a bit of shimmer. Easy to wear, easy to apply, and easy on the wallet (unless you have the need to buy every color after you try one).

Hope this helps!
