I don’t know what I was expect when I swatched the NYX Galactic Love Cosmic Metals Lip Cream for the first time but trust me when I say that I didn’t expect to fall head over heels in love with the lip cream or is it a lipgloss? You know what, these days brands seem to blur the lines when it comes to lip products and it is getting harder and harder to define what category a product falls under.
I don’t want to be one of those old school bloggers – which I kinda am – but back in my day (aka 2011), there was a very clear definition about what was and what was not a lipstick and right now everything is just messed up . . . and I slyly blame the introduction of liquid lipsticks . . . but that is a rant for another day as I have a gorgeous lip product to share with you from the house of NYX Cosmetics.
The NYX Galactic Love Cosmic Metals Lip Cream – £7.00 via Feel Unique – is a warm-toned bronze lipstick with an intense, multidimensional colour that has been designed to cover your lips in “lustrous” colour that feels and looks like a gloss. It’s not often that you find a nude lipstick in a metallic finish that is daytime/work suitable and is quite comfortable to wear. While I do think that the finish of this lipstick magnifies the lines on my lips – though I do think that’s just be being a bit “sensitive” – I do think that this is a very good lipstick under the £10 bracket.
I think the NYX Galatic Love lipstick is a bit on the drying side despite not being a matte liquid lipstick and I get about 4-5 hours wear time which is not bad but I do think that there is room for improvement here.
The NYX Galactic Love Cosmic Metals Lip Cream costs £7.00 and is available to purchase from Feel Unique.
