NYX Glam Lipstick Aqua Luxe in Lotus Swatches and Review

If you like sparkly lippies, NYX may have the lipstick for you!  They are the Glam Lipstick Aqua Luxe lipsticks.  I love anything sparkly or metallic-y, so I decided to try one of these in the color "Lotus".

NYX says:  Light up the room—with your lips. Silky, smooth, and packed with concentrated sparkle, our Glam Lipstick Aqua Luxe is your go-to glam tool for sexy, shimmering lips.

The lipsticks are housed in a black tube with a little clear "window" in the middle of the tube that shows the bullet of the lipstick.

Lotus is described by NYX as a "light red bronze with silver reflects."

To my eye, it is a light warm rose with fine silver glitter.  It looks somewhat metallic with a little sparkle on the lips, and has a glossy finish.

This is quite light-weight and slick with a tiny hint of grittiness (barely noticeable, and certainly not enough to bother me), and has no scent or taste.  It has a glossy finish and wears for about 2-3 hours before I feel the need to reapply.

I like the formula and definitely the color, so this one gets a thumbs up from me.  

The Glam Lipstick Aqua Luxe lipsticks come in 12 colors and retail for $6 (USD).

NYX also has a line of lipglosses called Glam Lipgloss Aqua Luxe that are also glittery and very pretty (if you like sparkle).  I reviewed two of them here.


  1. I actually haven't tried any NYX lipsticks, I love their lip butters and mega shine lip glosses. This looks quite pigmented, and such a pretty color on you!!
