The NYX Lip products you definitely need and definitely don’t

NYX Professional Makeup have become a go-to for incredible lip products that are packed with pigment and last incredibly well too, but with so much choice, which are the best products?

Here we run through the NYX lip products you definitely need to add to your makeup collection and those that you might want to skip on.

NYX Professional Makeup Soft Matte Lip CreamNYX Professional Makeup Soft Matte Lip Cream

If you like to apply your lip colour and know that it’s going to stay in place all day, then the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream is something you definitely need. There’s a huge array of shades, from neutral shades to more bold colours and incredibly dark colours for those looking to create a striking look.

The Soft Matte Lip Cream comes with a wand applicator, and the colour applies smoothly to lips. The formula is infused with beeswax so it doesn’t dry out the lips and it budge-proof. You can eat and drink and know that your colour will still be around afterwards.

Once you’ve tried one of these products, expect to build up quite the colourful collection.

NYX Professional Makeup Wicked LippiesNYX Professional Makeup Wicked Lippies

The Wicked Lippies definitely create an impact with their shimmering jewel-toned shades. These aren’t for everyone, but the formula, as always with NYX, is excellent. The colours are incredibly pigmented and last well. These lipsticks definitely come down to personal preference over the colours available.

NYX Professional Makeup Liquid Suede Cream LipstickNYX Professional Makeup Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick

Quite similar to the Soft Matte Lip Cream, the NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks are just as pigmented and feel a little more nourishing on the lips. The formula glides on easily creating a beautifully opaque finish that’s also waterproof, plus there’s avocado oil and vitamin E to ensure it feels soft and hydrating on the lips too.

There’s plenty of colours to choose from, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to picking just one, two or three.

NYX Professional Makeup Butter GlossNYX Professional Makeup Butter Gloss

There’s an incredible 34 shades available in the NYX Butter Gloss, and it isn’t like your usual gloss either, the colours are well pigmented, there’s a hint of shine on the lips and it doesn’t feel sticky or gloopy either. It feels soft and smooth on the lips and you can layer up easy to create a more intense shade of colour.

NYX Professional Makeup Butter LipstickNYX Professional Makeup Butter Lipstick

The NYX Butter Lipstick is a satin lipstick that infuses excellent colour pigmentation with a soft and creamy formula that’s long wearing. There are plenty of shades to choose from, but make sure you wear a liner with this formula as you don’t want the colour to bleed.

NYX Professional Makeup High Voltage LipstickNYX Professional Makeup High Voltage Lipstick

The NYX High Voltage Lipsticks are creamy and rich in colour, if you want a colour that’s going to stay put all day then this isn’t the lipstick for you, but if you don’t mind re-applying you get a gorgeous satin finish that’s highly pigmented.

NYX Professional Makeup Lip PrimerNYX Professional Makeup Lip Primer

We’re not entirely sold on the need for a lip primer, so we’re not going to suggest that it’s something that you desperately need to add to your makeup kit.

It works by creating a smooth canvas that gives lipstick a smooth base that helps it stay put – but if you’re using a matte lipstick these generally stick around anyway.

They can be used as lip liners as well, but honestly we’ll be just sticking to our liner products instead.

NYX Professional Makeup Intense Butter GlossNYX Professional Makeup Intense Butter Gloss

The Intense Butter Gloss from NYX is a range of rich colours with a gorgeous glossy texture. They deliver a powerful hit of colour, and the doe-foot wand makes the application really easy.

NYX Professional Makeup Matte LipstickNYX Professional Makeup Matte Lipstick

If the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream formulas are too drying for you, then the NYX Matte Lipstick might just be the thing. The velvety texture doesn’t feel drying at all when it’s on and there are 26 shades of pigmented colours to choose from, including delicate nudes, sugary pinks and ravishing reds. We prefer the Lip Cream, simply because the application wand is easier to use, but these are just as good if you prefer a lipstick.

NYX Professional Makeup Lip Liner PencilNYX Professional Makeup Lip Liner Pencil

An excellent lip liner pencil from NYX, these come in a variety of shades and they’re really affordable too, so you can pick up plenty to match the different coloured lipsticks you own.

NYX Professional Makeup Pump It Up Lip PlumperNYX Professional Makeup Pump It Up Lip Plumper

The shimmering colour of the NYX Pump It Up Lip Plumper might not be for everyone, but the Max-Lip formula is ideal for giving lips a fuller look. The special peptide is there to improve collagen synthesis which can leave to firmer, fuller smoother looking lips.

NYX Professional Makeup Mechanical Lip PencilNYX Professional Makeup Mechanical Lip Pencil

The Mechanical Lip Pencils are a great product to have in your handbag, simply because you don’t need a pencil sharpener when you blunt the liner. The twist up pencil is creamy and richly pigmented.

The Mega Shine Lip Glosses from NYX coat lips in glistening colour, the shine is also moisturising for the lips and doesn’t feel too sticky.

NYX Professional Makeup Colour Be Gone Lip Colour RemoverNYX Professional Makeup Colour Be Gone Lip colour remover

We’re not entirely sold that we need to spend money on a lip colour remover when your normal cleanser will most likely remove any lip colour at the end of the day if needed. The formula is lovely, and doesn’t feel harsh or abrasive on the lips, it’s like a balm cleanser designed specifically for lips, but again, we’re not entirely sure we need to spend our money on this.

As lovely as it is, it’s not really a necessity.

NYX Professional Makeup Round LipstickNYX Professional Makeup Round Lipstick

Unless you’re a huge fan of applying your lipstick with a brush, the NYX Round Lipstick is a bit of a dud really. The round design makes it hard to apply the colour with precision, even though the beautiful velvet texture is gorgeous on the lips.

The Slide on Lip Pencil from NYX is a matte formula that’s waterproof and long wearing, again they come in a variety of shades that are perfect for matching to your different colour lipsticks.

The formula of these lipsticks are really standout, the NYX Full Throttle Lipstick are matte formulas that are packed with pigment and don’t budge. You just have to be really careful with the application as they’re extremely prone to breaking. Make sure you don’t wind up the tip too much when you’re applying this lipstick.
