Makeup Wars: Our Favorite NYX Lip Products!

This week our Makeup Wars soldiers are gabbing about their favorite NYX Lip Products and there is lots to talk about! The drugstore brand has tons of lip options to choose from with my long-time favorite being the Butter Glosses. I have seven, yes seven shades and have repurchased a few of them several times. Let’s get to it shall we?

NYX Butter Glosses are buttery soft (hence the name), creamy, have plenty of pigment, are not too sticky and come in a whopping 34 shades! From sheer to opaque, soft nudes to bold fashion colors, NYX Butter Glosses are only $5 and even better, you can often find them on sale! I paid a mere $3.49 for mine.

As is typical for me, I chose a selection chose pinks, peaches and corals.

  • BLG 01 Strawberry Parfait is a sheer warm pink perfect for summer
  • BLG 03 Peaches and Cream is a vivid pinky coral
  • BLG 04 Merengue is a cool lilac pink
  • BLG 05 Creme Brulee is a pretty nude
  • BLG 08 Apple Strudel is a warm true peach
  • BLG 11 Maple Blondie warm intense deep peachy coral
  • BGL 31 Sunday Mimosa is a very pale peach

Apple Strudel is great for an everyday minimal makeup look, Peaches and Cream is lovely in the summer with all your bright outfits, Maple Blondie is my oft-searched-for perfect coral, Creme Brulee is a milky nude, Strawberry Parfait is fabulous for summer, Merengue is a lilac pink great for spring. The only shade I’m not crazy about is Sunday Mimosa because it’s so pale it washes me out. Some of the sheerer and paler shades also look great over lipsticks.

The tubes are supposed to reflect the shade inside but I still recommend using the testers as the glosses tend to be lighter than the color on the tubes. The NYX Butter Glosses are very comfortable to wear and have a lovely vanilla scent!

NYX Duo Chromatic Lip Glosses ($8) are a newer release and are so fun and pretty! They come in 8 shades:

  • Booming – pink with gold duochromatic pearl
  • Cocktail Party – nude base with gold
  • Crushing It – sheer white base with blue and pink
  • Day Club – light blue with pink and lavender
  • Fairplay – sheer base with gold/coral duochrome
  • Foam Party – pistachio base with gold/pink duochrome pearl
  • Gypsy Dream – lavender with blue/gold/silver duochrome pearl
  • Lucid – white gold base with yellow gold/green duochrome pearl
  • Spring It On – sheer deep pink base with gold duochrome
  • The New Normal – light rose with holographic pearl

Most of these were sold out at my local Ulta but I was able to purchase Crushing It and Fairplay. I believe these are meant to be worn alone for festival looks, however, I will wear these mostly over lipsticks. Fairplay is so gorgeous it can be worn alone!

I swatched Winky Lux Leche, ColourPop Lux Lipstick in Money Side Up and Lay Over alone and then with Crushing It and Fairplay over top.
