Beauty | Mini Nyx Lip Collection

I love finding new lip products, the feeling of walking around the beauty aisles of Boots fills me with joy. The latest beauty counter to come to Boots is NYX, I am a huge fan of this brand they are super affordable and most importantly high quality which brings me on to their lip products.
I am slowly collecting the Nyx butter glosses and soft matte creams at £5.50 each you really can't complain. 
Butter Gloss
So as glosses go they aren't anywhere near as long wearing as a lipstick or a matte lipstick, I would say they last just as good as any other lip glosses I have from MAC, Stila and any other higher end brands. I was really surprised at the pigmentation from them, I have slightly lighter shades and the pigmentation is so good I can't wait to see what a darker shade will be like.
Soft Matte Cream
So these are just like they say on the tin or the plastic tube they are a matte cream so they aren't drying like a matte liquid lipstick can be they are a lot softer and creamier which also means they wont last as long as a liquid lipstick but they are so much more comfortable to wear. I couldn't see myself stop wearing matte liquid lipsticks but these have converted me, they are weightless on my lips have amazing pigmentation and lasted me through 1 meal and drinking water throughout the day, once I got to my second meal of the day it did start to wear off. They don't go patchy when you need to top them up but also come off really well with make up remover.
