Review: NYX Lipstick in Strawberry Milk

I adore this lipstick so much! It’s my first NYX Lipstick and I can see these becoming a firm favourite with me! I find their formula similar to Barry M Lip Paints with both being very creamy and pigmented with Barry M just slightly taking the lead with the creaminess.

This lipstick is called Strawberry Milk which is a beautiful pastel pink which is perfect for the upcoming Summer months and would look amazing with sun kissed skin. The finish is matt but I would be inclined to say it leans slightly more to a satin finish rather than a flat matt. I love how perfect it makes my lips look and the overall feel of it is lovely and not drying in the slightest which can sometimes happen with the more matt lipsticks so I was very pleased with this little thing!

The colour is very pigmented and creates an opaque finish with just one swipe but the only downside I can find to this is that the colour doesn’t last very long. About an hour at most for me before the colour starts fading so there will be touch ups needed with this but it’s totally worth it for the gorgeous colour it gives.

I can see myself wearing this a lot over the Spring/Summer along with Topshop’s Coy which has the same pastelliness to it but in a creamy peach colour. I find that those two combined make a beautiful pastel pinky peach which is the most amazing Summer shade!

    I love NYX blushes, but I've never thought to try their lipsticks. Your review may have just convinced me! I really like the name 'Strawberry Milk' 🙂 x
