Please explain to me how it escaped my notice that Boots now stocks NYX Cosmetics... I had the revelation thanks to my friend Sammie as she went out and hauled some bits and with literally no shame I can tell my day was massively brightened by the discovery and subsequent online order! As I've now tested these out I thought I'd haul/review them for you. I literally have nothing bad to say about any of these products and 100% recommend them all.. but I'll go into a bit more detail for those of you tempted by the swatches!
Firstly I'll talk about the Soft Matte Lip Creams Zurich (swatch 1) and Amsterdam (swatch 2). They look quite glossy in the picture but dry a really pretty soft and comfortable matte. I apply a couple of coats as I find layering helps them last longer on my lips, around 4 hours before touch ups are needed. The second product I'll talk about is the Butter Lipstick in Pops (swatch 3). This one stays glossy on the lips so definitely doesn't last as long as the Matte lip creams. However I don't mind as I find the natural colour and finish really beautiful and perfect for everyday wear. Lastly I'll talk about the Butter Glosses in Cherry Pie (swatch 4) and Apple Strudel (swatch 5) which I have actually tried before thanks to my friend Liz as she sent me the shade Apple Strudel in a swap we did last year! I used that lip gloss up so quickly and it was such a favourite that I decided to replace it. These glosses aren't sticky which is the main reason I love them so much. They also last a decent amount of time and are really pigmented.
