NYX Plush Gel Lipstick

NYX Plush Gel Lipstick ($6.99) is a new slick, gel formula lipstick that launched in 12 shades recently from NYX. As far as I’m concerned, every single lipstick formula should be a gel one!

I love the consistency, texture, and formula of this plus, let’s not forget about the price tag and don’t forget Ulta.com has a Buy 1, Get 1 50% off on select NYX this week! Score!

Now, I’m also in love with the new Sephora Rouge Balm! This is a new gel lipstick that Sephora recently launched that has a super creamy, hydrating texture. If you love that formula you’re sure to enjoy NYX Plush Gel Lipstick which is a thinner, slicker consistency with excellent color pay off.

NYX Plush Gel Lipstick comes in a thin, long slimmed barrel that holds 0.05 oz of product. It’s a nice, compact packaging that stores and travels easily. It’s also very easy to apply so, if you don’t have a mirror it’s an easy swipe and go kind of formula. Mind you, I prefer using a mirror but if I don’t have one this is easy to swipe on.

I simply love lipstick formulas like this as with Summer here it’s an ideal pick for light, weightless color with a hydrating finish. The formula has a slick, easy glide on lips and drenches them in gorgeous pigment. I only tried one shade but it packed plenty of pigment with excellent color pay off on a single swipe. The formula glides on like butter with a lightly hydrating texture. I never had an issue with the color falling into my lip lines and it had an excellent smooth, even finish that didn’t migrate. The formula remains pleasantly moist through the where with a slightly shiny finish initially that lasts for about two hours into the four hour wear time. I noticed a slight fragrance and flavor that was a bit fruity but it fades quite quickly!

I’m a lover of lightweight lipstick formulas and NYX Plush Gel Lipstick is exactly that. Slick, shiny, color rich, with a thin, easy to wear hydrating formula this lipstick isn’t to be missed.

Loves it!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I’ve been waiting for my Ukta to get these in stock, so glad to see you do a review! I don’t normally like traditional lipsticks, I prefer more of a balm, like the revlon butter balms that are sadly being discontinued or the loreal balms. Does the nyx have a similar consistency to either of those? That color is gorgeous by the way!

    • Isabella Muse

      Thanks Nikki! 🙂 Me too, I really like thinner, lightweight lipsticks. These aren’t like Butter Balms or L’Oreal Balms. Revlon’s formula is creamy and thicker and L’Oreal’s is sheer and balmier. These are thinner, lighter, and slicker. Hope this helps!?

      • Nikki

        Yes that does help, thanks! Sounds like something right up my alley. I’ll look for it next time I’m at Ulta.

  • Heidi

    I really want to try these. Gel just sounds so good in a lip product, and I do like the Sephora one a lot.

    I’ve been intrigued by these. I think I may place an order with ulta.com since NYX at my local store is always a mess.

    I like the Sephora balms so I’m glad to find something similar with more color selection and a better price. Although, the Sephora ones do have SPF.

    Ooo I rather like the look of this for summer days at work. Hopefully it’ll come out in the UK soon. ^_^

  • Kim

    I have two – a brownish nude with is beautiful and mild in scent/taste and a coral one which tastes nasty and will go in the garbage. I love the texture- not so much the colour selection though.

    I’m just so in love with NYX products! So great and inexpensive too! Good job on this post 🙂 Xoxo, Blair!
