Nyx Powder Puff Lippie Lip Cream Review + Swatches

nyx powder puff lippie lip cream


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.

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?





Nyx Matte Lipsticks Review

What’s up, everybody! Getting ready for the weekend? Me? Not so much, I’ve been down with the cold. Sometimes these chilly days can get you down, but hey! let’s keep on going, right? After all, I wan to tell you something about this latest discovery of mine. The Nyx Matte Lipsticks. I bought these lipsticks a couple of months ago, but I don’t know what happened to me, perhaps I had a slight amnesia that I simply forgot to test them. I mean, I know they were there, but it’s as if I didn’t see them at all, lol.

Anyways, one of my friends was talking about Nyx Matte Lipsticks and I thought, hmmm, I may have a few, and indeed, I have. Well, guess what? let me tell you right now that I regret not having to use these lippies immediately, because the moment I swiped one on my lips, it was love at first sight. Never knew that Nyx Lipsticks could be this good, even more so for a matte lipstick. In fact, now I realize that I’ve never really tried a Nyx Product that I didn’t like. Their lip products are always reliable and affordable. 

I have three Nyx Matte Lipsticks in my stash for today’s review, and I am so in love with all three of them. I love the smooth velvety yet buttery texture, I love the wearable shades, and the longevity is very decent as well. Not to mention the amazing pigmentation that these lipsticks have. It’s hard to imagine them being $6 each.

Natural (Mauve) – This shade has a mauve-pink tone to it. It looks great as an everyday shade, however, I wouldn’t say that this is the “natural” shade for my lips, but it might be for others, perhaps. That’s because this hue does not match the exact natural color of my lip’s pigment, or at least the shade appears to be slightly pinkish on me. But I love this shade nonetheless.

Whipped Caviar (Muted Plum) – As I was talking about my lip’s natural shade, I think that this shade is probably the most natural to me. I think the sort of muted plum or warm beige color suited my lip’s natural pigment and my skin tone. I like this shade a lot, and I am definitely going to be wearing this everyday.

Tea Rose (Mauve Pink) – The most pink of the three, this shade is one of the most wearable pinks I’ve ever seen. It’s not too over the top, but more like a muted mauve-pink. It’s also extremely pigmented and will be great on any skin tone.

I would love to purchase more of these Nyx Matte Lipsticks soon. They’re such a good deal for being an affordable lipstick. You may even think they could be high-end because their quality is amazing. These lipsticks could give the matte liquid lipsticks a run for their money. Just don’t ask me about their scents right now, (I don’t think they do, as far as I can remember), because as of the moment, my nose doesn’t work. In fact, nothing works for these clogged sinuses. I might as well go and sniff a Drano, lol.


Happy Friday All! Take Care and don’t get sick out there!
