Whipped Caviar

NYX Whipped Caviar Matte Lipstick ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The consistency was smooth, creamy without being too slippery so it adhered well to the lips evenly. It had rich, opaque color coverage that applied evenly and lasted for four and a half hours. The formula was comfortable to wear and neither drying nor hydrating.

The Matte Lipstick is supposed to be “highly pigmented” and have a “velvety, non-glossy” finish. In general, the formula has semi-opaque to opaque color coverage with a velvety texture that glides on without tugging but doesn’t have a lot of slip, so the lipstick won’t slide around while worn. The formula varied from non-drying to moderately drying with wear times that ranged from four to over six hours (deeper, reddish shades lasted quite long). It has a mint scent and no discernible taste. I noticed that the packaging had a tendency to twist up the lipstick too easily (even barely holding it) and sometimes would twist down as I would apply it directly from the tube.

NYX Alabama Matte Lipstick ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark red with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, smooth consistency that glided on without tugging on the lips and delivered even coverage. The color wore well for over six hours and left a slight stain behind, though the formula was neither drying nor hydrating over time.

NYX Temptress Matte Lipstick ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a medium, pink-coral with warmer undertones and a semi-matte finish. This shade had a stronger white base, which seemed to make the lipstick appear lighter on the lips than initially swatched or in the tube. The texture was lightly creamy, comfortable to apply, and did not slide around over time. It had nearly opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly with just a bit of color that settled into my lip lines after two and a half hours of wear. This shade lasted for four hours and was non-drying.

State of Flux

NYX State of Flux Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter ($6.99 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is an icy, light pink with cool undertones and a sparkling sheen. The finish had larger sparkles in it and less fine ones compared to most shades in the range, so if you aren’t a fan of sparkle, this might be one to skip. It had sheer to medium coverage (hard to get it to be opaque without piling on four to five layers of product, at which point, the product is too thick and flakes off). The consistency was blendable, lightweight, and thin with a more watery, cooler feel on the skin. It dried down and lasted for seven hours on me.

The Away We Glow formula is a liquid highlighter that has buildable coverage “from soft to intense.” The brand recommends to “dab and blend” on skin for “irresistible illumination.” There are nine shades available, and the shimmer varied from shade to shade: fine pearl to chunkier sparkle. The formula has a watery, thin feel from the tube, and I liked getting a bit on the back of my hand and then dabbing with fingertips or a stippling brush onto the cheeks and high planes of the face for highlighting. It did dry down after a minute or so, and the wear ranged from seven to eight hours.

Liquid Prism

NYX Liquid Prism Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter ($6.99 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a pale, whitish beige with iridescent pink to violet pearl. This shade was more like a duochrome, though the shift was subtle. The texture was lightweight, watery and thin but spreadable across the skin. It had sheer to medium coverage, which was buildable by applying a second layer after the first one had dried. Another way to build up coverage was to pat the color on, wait until almost dry, and then blend out the edges to maintain that initial opacity. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

Gold Rush

NYX Gold Rush Away We Glow Liquid Highlighter ($6.99 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coppery bronze with warm undertones and flecks of gold pearl and sparkle. This shade was one of the most shimmery (and deepest in visible color) within the range. It worked more as a highlighting bronzer on my skin tone, and I suspect it would be a beautiful highlighter on medium and darker complexions. It had semi-sheer to opaque, buildable pigmentation. The texture was thin, watery, and cool to the touch, but it spread evenly across the skin and blended well. It dried down and yielded a soft, glowing finish with a few bits of sparkle. It wore nicely for eight hours on me.
