NYX Lip Liner Review by Stephs World

NYX Lip Primer // Review

We’ve all been there when we just impulse buy something, right? For me, the NYX Lip Primer was just that. I saw it and was instantly intrigued.

My Initial Thoughts

There are 2 shades of the NYX Lip Primer, ‘Nude’ and ‘Deep Nude’. I picked up the ‘Nude’ as it was the lighter one of the two and I guessed that my lips aren’t naturally bright so I didn’t need the darker nude.

I feel the Lip Primer does actually work and isn’t a gimmick which I first thought it may be. I thought that this primer may make the lips look like when some girls used to add their Foundation over their lips, but it doesn’t which is great.

The NYX Lip Primer works by dulling down any redness in the lips and neutralises the colour of your lips without drying them.

I honestly do see that after I use this Lip Primer, that my lipstick does last a lot longer as well as looking sharper and bolder. My lips also look smoother with using the Lip Primer and makes my lipstick go on a lot more neater.

NYX Lip Liner Review

How to use the NYX Lip Primer

I have tried to use the NYX Lip Primer in two ways. The first is just on its own like a lipstick. The texture of the Primer in no way dries out the lips like some lipsticks can. The way I like to use the Primer though is over the top of my EOS Strawberry Lip Balm. I usually like to use Lip Balm underneath lip liners and lipsticks as I just like the way the lipstick sits on my lips, but it is all personal preference.

Overall Thoughts…

The retail price for the NYX Lip Primer is £6 and there does seem to be a lot of product for the price. I personally am loving this addition to my makeup collection and would recommend it to make your lips look flawless.

Have you tried this Lip Primer or any other Lip Primer before? What are your thoughts on them?

  • I’ve not tried a lip primer but I am curious to, as I wear a lot of liquid lipsticks and I find they don’t sit right on top of the lip balm I use but I still need something moisturizing on my lips first.

  • I have never thought of trying out a lip primer before! To be honest, I rarely use primers in general because I haven’t got on very well with them. This sounds like an interesting product, though!


  • Zoë Smith

    I don’t currently have a lip primer in my make up bag, but perhaps now I will need to experiment! I hate when my lipstick dries out and feel this may be the answer I need!


  • I didn’t know lip primer was a thing but I feel like I really need it now. I don’t wear lipstick often at all but be handy for when I do! £6 isn’t a bad price tag either. Xxxxxx


  • Emma Ramsell

    This has been a really interesting. Read! I’ve always wondered about lip primers due to having naturallly dry lips so it’s great to know that there’s a good affordable one x

  • Chloe Spacey

    I didn’t even know lip primer existed! It might be the answer to my long lasting prayers and I love all things nyx. Great review!

  • I have never used lip primer before, wow!

  • Confetti & Cashmere

    I’ve never used a lip primer but I’m sure it would be great for a night out or a long day! I am a big fan of NYX lip products though. xx

  • Chloe

    Oh wow! I didn’t even know you could get a lip primer but it sounds fab! Interestingly enough, I’ve never used anything by NYX! (I know, I’m a terrible excuse for a blogger!) I’ll deffo be looking at picking this up at some point because it sounds very good! Xx

  • Annie Bachmet

    I love Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar Primer! Is really nourishing but not sticky with a little tingle to make you feel it’s on there. My lipstick lasts a good few hours longer! I will definatly have to try out the NYX primer though! Glad you went for the Nude and said it doesn’t look like foundation on the lips as I’ve had that problem with the e.l.f one! X

  • Oh I didn’t know NYX did a lip primer- I definitely have to try this out! It’s such a great price as well, most primers I have come across seem to be pretty pricey which puts me off trying them

  • I’ve never actually thought about using an actual lip primer! Great idea, I’ve always thought that lip liner can work just as a primer but not actually clicked that theres actually products out there for this! Great review and for only £6.00 I might pick this up when I next visit Sheffield (my closest NYX stand!) xxxx

  • for someone who wears lipstick every day this is deffo something I might need to invest in! Looks like it would be a good buy x



  • ADoseOfChatter

    Oooh sounds like a great tool for girls with strongly pigmented lips, to allow the true colour of the lipstick to be shown! If it keeps the lippie on for longer too that’s a bonus in my book!

  • Flora Halfhide

    I don’t know anything about make up but for the price it’s sounds great and really effective.

  • Stacey

    I haven’t tried anything from NYX yet, but this sounds great. I’m always eager to find anything that helps my lippie stay in place for longer and at that price this is definitely a budget friendly option.

  • Holly

    I need to try more from NYX their lip products are so good!

  • Charlene McElhinney

    I would love to get my hands on this but £6 is a bit of an ask for a lippie primer! Maybe if I’m on a spending splurge I’ll pick it up because it sounds great 🙂

  • Tasha Louise

    For £6 this product sounds like such a necessity for any makeup lovers collections!xxxx

  • Tania Ribeiro

    £6 sounds like a great price! I’ve wanted a lip primer for a while didn’t know NYX did one

    It’s very interesting to read this from my perspective!

  • Sian…

    I love this lip primer too! I too use lipbalm first before this and then lipstick/lipgloss. I think it’s a great product for only £6!
