#BeautyBit: Nik’s NYX Lip Picks

Yes, yes, it’s about time I started my beauty posts, with my make-up routine on Snapchat, and my MOTD posts on Instagram it as only a matter of time before I got this rolling on here.
Since LA based cosmetic company NYX set up shop in Canada earlier this year Toronto make-up junkies have found themselves in a wonderland of NYX and shipping fees. What a time to be alive.
NYX is not only sold at Shoppers Drug Mart, but has multiple locations of their own shops in various malls, and most noted for their Queen St. West location.

As an avid lip color fan, and someone who is asked on a regular basis what brand and shade I’m wearing I thought I’d give y’all, my loving readers, a peak into my top NYX Lip Picks (in no particular order)


NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream
SMLC 21
“Transylvania”
Under $10

A plum tone, great for a night out. My only issue with this shade is that you need to make sure your lips are primed and not dry.

NYX Liquid Suede
LSCL 07
“Sandstorm”
Under $10

A neutral tone, a slightly brown nude. I find it to be great for day, and night. It gives me a slightly 90’s feel, which I adore. I really don’t even need a liner for it, but it adds some pop if you do.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream
SMLC 02
“Stockholm”
Under $10

Another great day wear lip color, a nude with a slight orange undertone I feel. The undertone however does not clash with my bronzer! This shade does require a liner I find.

NYX Liquid Suede
LSCL 01
Stone Fox
Under $10

I’m a big fan of this one, its a blue-gray tone and lasts quite a long time. Like the other LS shades, this is matte, and really does not require a liner. If you want to avoid bleeding color use a clear lip liner.
