NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream and Liquid Illuminator

NYX Liquid Illuminators and Soft Matte Lip Creams are much raved in the blogosphere, besides many other products. So how was my experience with these beauties from this drug-store brand, Read More to Reveal More!!!

I have been planning to try out NYX products, which are much raved by the beauty bloggers around the world, so for my first experience I picked Liquid Illuminator in "Sun Beam" and Soft Matte Lip Cream in "Ibiza" (love the name). I bought these beauties from Reforma.pk (Haul post HERE). 


NYX Liquid Illuminator SUNBEAM
I love subtle glow on my face, and have been trusting many powder highlighters to achieve that, this is my first liquid illuminator. I loved the consistency, nor thick nor flowy, just right! Sunbeam is a cooltoned highlighter with a pink-ish sheen in it, and a lot of glitter/shimmer particles, which are visibly-visible (yes that means a little overdone, it may turn you into a disco-ball). Best results I got by applying with my finger tips, you may use a brush for that. I won't recommend using a sponge/beauty blender due to those glittery chunks. Applied with very soft hand it gives a subtle glow. Loved using it in Winters, as in Summers I already have a lot of oil on my face to make me glow naturally (:p)

Price: PKR 1099/-

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream IBIZA Lip Swatches
NYX has a fantastic range of shades in SMLC, which left me confused in selecting a shade, trust me if I tell you that I picked this shade for its name "IBIZA", yes I love this place's name and wish to visit in my life (sighs!) Undoubtedly the shade is awesome, its a pink with hints of coral, a very decent wearable shade. The finish is semi-matte, yes it doesn't dry out on lips like the liquid lipsticks, remember its LIP-CREAM! I didn't find it much long lasting. It leaves a very muted tint on lips, which I liked (in case I ate it all :p) Re-application is not a mess with it, unlike a matte liquid lipstick. I liked it, and if you do not like the drying liquid lipsticks, but need a matte lip product then this is your baby!

Price: PKR 875/-

  3. I have been eyeing the illuminator for a while but after seeing the swatches i have decided not to buy it

  4. The illuminator is really nice and subtle. Loving this NYX lip cream shade on you. Great swatches like always.

  5. I am converted to SMLCs. My collection is growing. Beautiful picks from NYX. And loved your lip swatches Huda, as always :)

  6. I was planning to get Sunbeam but after reading your review, I won't bcoz of glitter particles. Thanks for saving my money😃. But ibiza is in my wish list too and will definitely get it after watching your killer lip swatches. Nice review.

  7. This highlighter looks so good. I recently tried the Wet N Wild Hollywood Boulevard highlighter but didn't find it anything special. This one looks promising but is more appropriate for winter months as I like to stick to powder thingies only in summer. Ibiza is very pretty and thanks for such a nice review, plus swatches. :)
