Hello there! In my previous posts, I have mentioned about being curious with the latest Nyx Powder Puff Lippie Lip Cream (5.95 USD Amazon, 8.50 USD Ulta). If you’ve been a long-time reader of my blog, you’d know that I have a thing for matte lipsticks, especially the liquid or cream ones that set into a soft-focus blotted type, like the Buxom Pillowpout Lip Powder (reviewed HERE), the Lorac PRO Hi-Res Lip & Cheek Powder (seen HERE), or even the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips Matte Liquid Lipstick (swatched HERE). This time, I’d like to compare and talk about the Nyx Powder Puff Lippie that everyone seems to be really liking right now.
Per Nyx’s description, the Powder Puff Lippie Lip Cream is a creamy lip color packaged in a soft puffy applicator that glides on the lips easily and it sets into a powdery soft-focus matte finish. Upon my first impression, the packaging of this lipstick looks cute with its nice squeezable tube that releases a precise amount of product through the spongy applicator. Speaking of the applicator, it does apply the product easily on the lips and it feels smooth, easy, and precise to apply.
There is not a lot of strong scent on this product and they come in several shades. I did notice that there are inconsistencies with the shades. For example, there are variations or different tones in two or more particular shades. For example, the shade Squad Goals had one in a rosy tone at Ulta and a more beige tone as well. It seems to me like a manufacturer issue. I don’t know for sure, but it’s something worth considering into, especially if you’re looking for your preferred shade. For my choice of shades, I did pick only three because I find that some of the shades didn’t quite match my skintone. Since there are variabilities in the colors, I decided to pick up the shade that would look best on my skin. See the swatches below.
Squad Goals – tea rose pink
Moody – cool-toned plum
Prank Call – burgundy
As for the formula, I find the Nyx Powder Puff Lippie to be creamy at first, and then it does settle into a very comfortable soft-focus (not-necessarily powdery) blurry matte. It never felt drying on me and it really does last a long time, about 4-6 hours on my lips, even after eating, snacking, etc. Overall, I’m really impressed at it especially because it’s got an affordable price point, and on top of that, its overall quality is very good. I also think that this is way more comfortable than the lip products I mentioned above, like the Buxom and Lorac Lip Powders. When compared to the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips, this Nyx one feels more hydrating, although if you’re into the super powdery blotted type of lips look, then the Hollywood Lips will give you that. As when compared to the Glossier Generation G Lipstick (seen HERE), well, that one feels more like a balm with a sheer blotted soft-focus look. Overall, I highly recommend this lipstick.
There is also another Nyx product I’m currently eyeing, and it’s the Line & Load All-In-One Lippie. I will investigate that soon. So, stay tuned guys.
Have you tried this particular Nyx lipstick already?
