THE DREAMY NYX SPRING LIP PICKS


The fact that it's now light again in the mornings (can I get a halleluja?) makes a little bubble of happiness well up inside me...spring is on the way. As soon as the weather in Poland peaks above freezing, I'm all about it.

When said season finally rocks up, it's high time to break out the bright lippies; and I'll tell you that for nothing. Many of you know of my obsession with none other than NYX's Soft Matte Lip Creams, and I have quite a collection even if I do say myself *insert smug face emoji here*.

You're all probably sick of me going on about them, but hey-ho, here's a whole post dedicated to these budget babes.

Today I'll be sharing with you a few of the shades from the range that I'll be wearing on rotation through out Spring, and reaching for well into the warmer months, too.



NYX have hit the nail on the head with their liquid-to-matte formula. It's not your classic liquid lippy that has the tendency to cling to dry patches and leave your pout crying out for help either, oh no.

Given the name, the are incredibly soft and gentle on your lips - they take a lil' longer to completely dry, but once they're set, they have a non-drying velvet finish that is so luxurious. What's more, with one swipe you can achieve bold, and long-lasting pigment. And did I mention they smell of bloomin' vanilla buttercream?! I'm a fan.

I'm a self-confessed nude lipstick fiend, so Stockholm (02) is the perfect peachy twist on my go-to. If you're looking to inject a subtle spring vibe to your look, this is the one for you.

Istanbul (06) is the shade I'm wearing in the photo below, and has quickly become a favourite amongst my collection. It's more of a statement than the tube suggests, and that makes me love it even more so! It's such a yummy, candy hue.

Manila (33) is 100% the one that's furthest out of my comfort zone. Nevertheless I can totally imagine myself rocking this with a tan when the sun decides to say peek-a-boo!

Which shades will you be 'adding to basket' this season?

  22. They have such great colours! But, I don't love how patchy this formula is. I much prefer the liquid suede formula!

    1. I've noticed a few shades are patchier than others, but not patchy enough to be put off them. I must try the liquid suedes!
