Hey ravishing readers! I’ve got some brand new NYX lippies swatched and reviewed for you today!
I got notice that these were available, so I went to ulta.com and ordered a few. (*UPDATE: These are no longer available at Ulta.com but you can find them on nyxcosmetics.com!) I have to say, they matched pretty good to the swatches shown online, (which can sometimes be terribly inaccurate!) I got 4 because they were BOGO 50% at the time. (They go on sale often, so wait for one if you can!)
Here is the description for the NXY Chunky Dunk Hydrating Lippies from Ulta’s site:
Be Lippie Chic with NYX’s satiny smooth formula. Light and sheer at first, yet buildable the more you apply. Never needs a sharpener, the portable package propels and repels for ease of use and no product is wasted.
- What it is: A sheer tinted, lightweight lip balm with a satin finish.
- What it does: Creates a satiny sheer wash of hydrating color that is buildable on the lips.
- Why we love it: Can be layered for light to medium coverage.
- How to use: Apply directly on bare lips or over lip liner for more pigmentation.
They are .11oz which seems to be standard size for lip crayons (I checked a few other brands in my stash!) 😉
I have to agree with the description, they ARE hydrating and SO smooth to apply. They all have a glossy finish that wears comfortably for about 4 hrs before fading. The darker colors also leave a slight stain on the lips. Some are more sheer than others, but I swatched them all to the max so you could see what they are capable of!
Also, they have super cute summer “drink” names, which is a fun touch! (Click photos to enlarge)
Orange Splash was the sheerest of the bunch when swatched on my hand, but I was happy to see it seemed more pigmented when I applied it to my lips. I love the orange lipstick trend, but have been somewhat chicken to actually wear one…but I can say this is the PREFECT orange to get your toes wet on that trend. Its very wearable, and even safe to wear to work!
I love deep fuchsia lip colors, so I HAD to get Berry Mojito! This was pretty opaque and like I said before, so glossy and comfortable!
Watermelon Cooler is slightly more pink than I thought it would be from the online photo (I thought it was going to be more “dusty rose”) but its pretty nonetheless! Its a cool toned carnation pink that would be great for day or night! (This is my fiancee’s favorite of the bunch…he loves pinks LOL!)
SEX ON THE BEACH:
I wanted the other red shade found on NYX.com (Cherry Smash) but for some reason its not available on ulta.com. 🙁 So, I opted for Sex on the Beach and I really like it. Its a warm red/orange shade that will go perfect with a summer tan! Its stayed somewhat sheer on the inner part of my lips, but got more pigmented on the outer edge…no idea why, but it still looks ok!
If you are looking for some new summer lip colors, i’d say these Chunky Dunks are defiantly worth checking out…I even want to get MORE colors! The formula on all 4 of these was great (slightly better than their Butter Lipsticks IMO), they have 12 shades to choose from, and they are only $6, so you can really get one for every outfit/occasion! I liked all of these shades, but if I HAD to pick I would say that Orange Splash and Berry Mojito were my 2 favorites!
UPDATE: I bought 2 more shades (Pomegranate Margarita & Rum Punch) and I’ve reviewed them HERE!
What do you say? Are you excited about these new NYX Hydrating Lippies??
Thanks so much for reading, hope you all have a teriffic Tuesday! xoxo, Kristina
