NYX Cosmetics Review - New Butter Lipstick Line - Razzle, Hunk, and Mary Janes

So I'd like to take the opportunity to use this first paragraph to let you know the days I post will be increasing! I have a lot of things to share with you guys and three days just isn't enough! Hopefully you guys will stop by and take a look because I anticipate posting 4 to 5 times a week!

**************************************

The minute I saw the news that NYX would be releasing a new line of lipsticks this month I was counting down the days that I saw them in store! (PS - you can find them at Ulta) or you can buy them directly from NYX.

I should warn you that this post is PHOTO HEAVY. I wanted to provide the types of photos that I look for when looking for reviews which means there are a lot of them. There is info throughout so make sure to at least skim the photos so you can see the descriptions.

The goods. 

**************************************

Razzle
Worn WITHOUT primer






Like any good cream this goes on very very smooth. It does require a few good swipes across the lips to build up to a bolder color. It's vivid but not overly bright. 


Wear after THREE hours of application
As you can see the creaminess starts to be less apparent. 
Slight color fade.

Wear after FIVE hours of application.
The creaminess aka "butter" is gone. The remaining color has more or less just stained my lips.
I found it somewhat drying relatively quickly. 

Hunk
Worn WITH primer





Unfortunately...if you are an avid lip primer user they don't work well with this line. 
There is far too much moisture if you use this cream lipstick and a primer. 
It took an INSANE amount of application to even get this as dark as I did and it's still faint.


Wear after 3 hours of application
Still VERY creamy with slight fading.

Where primer makes the longevity of the lipstick better and the creaminess...better...it just doesn't have the pop of color it's meant to unless you wear it sans primer.

Here is one photo without primer so you can see how much darker it is without primer. It still required a little build up but not like it does when worn with primer.



Mary Janes
Worn WITHOUT primer





I decided to just share photos of Mary Jane without primer since I realized how useless primer is with this line. 

Wear after ONE hour of application. 
Still somewhat creamy and slight color fade but after just an hour it's more fading than I'm used to. 


**************************************

In conclusion - 

Out of all the NYX line of lipsticks this is my least favorite. 
Don't get me wrong I don't dislike these. They are great for what they are. I just prefer a more pigmented and bold lip color. I also prefer lipsticks that don't take much build up and can easily be worn with primer without much color change and need for excessive build up of the lipstick.

Now when I'm looking for a more low key lipstick that I don't need to last for ages I may reach for these.

Honestly I feel like these lipsticks really do moisturize but it's almost like the moisture absorbs into the lips which makes the color and butter like texture not last as long. If you don't mind reapplying every few hours to get the pop of color back then these really are great lipsticks!

It all depends on what you're looking for. 
I'm happy I snagged these three to add to my always growing lipstick collection. 
Because sometimes I suppose need something other than a matte lipstick :) 

**************************************

I'll be back tomorrow with a What I Wore...I just need to figure out what I'm wearing!

  1. I like the way razzle looks on you, but I would personally go for hunk. I don't like wearing lipstick without primer, but I also don't mind reapplying every few hours either.
