Hello everyone, and Happy Monday! It’s time for a mini Ulta haul!
I went to Ulta about a week or so ago, and I picked up the Naked 3 palette (which I have since returned, sadly). While I was there, I also picked up a few products from NYX because they were buy one, get one 50 percent off and I had a coupon for like $3 off a $10 purchase. In case you can’t tell from previous posts, NYX is probably my favorite drugstore brand. And they normally have some good sales on the products, too, so that always helps. Anyway, here we go!
NYX Chunky Dunk Hydrating Lippie in the shade Berry Mojito
These are relatively new from NYX, and it’s their version of a lip crayon basically. I was drawn to this color because it looked kind of like a cross between pink and purple, which is very on trend right now. These are very moisturizing, and they have a bit of a staining effect on the lips, so the color seems to last for longer than I expected. I wasn’t crazy about the other colors in the range, so I probably won’t pick up any more of them, but I really like this color and the formula of these.
NYX Butter Lipstick in the shade Razzle
It seems like everyone has been talking about these lipsticks lately, so I figured I should try one out. There are a ton of colors in this range, but most of them were similar to shades by other brands that I already own or they just weren’t a good color match for me. But I love this one! It’s pretty bright, so it’s perfect for summer, and you can apply it lightly to just get a nice wash of color. The formula is great, and it also has a bit of a staining effect on the lips.
NYX Butter Gloss in the shade Strawberry Parfait
First of all, these smell really flipping good. Secondly, the formula is really nice in that it’s not sticky at all and you get good color on your lips from it; it’s not too sheer. I like to wear this one by itself just for a nice simple look, but it’s also nice to layer it over the other lip products above, or really anything. I’ve layered it over a couple different products, and it looks nice over all of them since it’s just a light mid-tone pink color. These glosses are really nice, and they smell super good, so it’s just a win-win.

NYX Blotting Powder in the shade Light
I think this is a relatively new product from NYX as well, but I could be wrong. I’ve been wanting to try their Stay Matte, Not Flat powder, but my Ulta is always sold out of the lightest shade, which would be a good color match for me. Anyway, I thought I’d give this a try and so far I like it. It’s not amazing, but it does work well for touchups throughout the day. It comes with a little NYX pouf to apply the product, and there’s a good size mirror as well, which is also nice.
