Cosmic Lips

I bought this.

NYX Cosmetics Cosmic Metals Lip Cream review swatches beautyjudy

I’m obsessed with lipstick – it doesn’t matter if it’s liquid or tube. Lip stains, creams, glosses, powders, balms. Matte, creamy, metallic. I love ALLLLLLL the lippies.

I am also all aboard when it comes to the metallic lip train, so it’s a no-brainer that these NYX Cosmetics Cosmic Metals Lip Creams came home with me while on a recent trip to Ulta – of course, it was an innocent trip where I was supposed to just pick up my new shampoo and conditioner…but we know how that goes…

Anyway! I picked up only two of these new lippies – Celestial and Galactic Love! NYX released a bunch of brown/neutral shades in the line – 6, to be exact!

Celestial on the left, Galactic Love on the right.

These lip creams are highly pigmented, and glide on the lips like a gloss. They did not feather.

I find the wear time to be impressive. Even with breakfast and a snack, by┬álunchtime I’ve got five hours of wear time. While I need to touch up after eating lunch, I’m impressed there is still color and product on my lips at that point.

I forgot to take my usual lip swatch photos, so here are a couple full-face shots of me wearing these lippies. This is Celestial:

This is Galactic Love. I took pics with and without my glasses that morning!

I got mine cheaper because I had something like $12 in coupons, but these Cosmic Metals Lip Creams retail for $7.49 at Ulta, and $7.50 on the NYX site.

What do you think of the metallic lip trend? Have you tried NYX’s Cosmic Metals lippies yet?

  • Beyond Beauty Lounge

    I have only found one metallic lip that I can pull off. These look great on you, makes me want to try them.

  • Anastasia

    I wish I could pull off metallics, but they tend to look terrible on me. These colors are beautiful!

    • BeautyJudy

      Uh oh! I’m sorry to hear that but you look beautiful in so many other things so it’s ok ­čÖé

  • Sissi Nuthman

    Love these bronzy colors on you- especially the lighter color! Very pretty.

    • BeautyJudy

      Thanks Sissi!

  • Miranda |

    Very pretty! and still neutral enough for every day looks!

    • BeautyJudy

      agreed! I wore these both to work.

  • Mai

    I really like how metallic lip colors look as a topper, like something just in the middle of the lips to add some dimension

    • BeautyJudy

      That’s a great look, especially if you’re going for subtle. I’m not very subtle, hahaha!!!

  • marciaf

    These look so pretty. I love metallic colors. Very flattering on you.

      I love metallic as well. I love that it’s having a moment!

    • BeautyJudy

      Thank you so much!

  • PrimeBeauty

    I have three of these and two I love. the other is too, too frosty. I don’t know the names, just the #s I like #15 & 16.

    • BeautyJudy

      Bummer! But I’m glad two of them do work out!

  • Phyrra Nyx

    I love both of those shades on you.

    • BeautyJudy



    Galactic Love is so stunning! You’re making me want to try a metal lip – and I’m on a no-buy!

    • BeautyJudy

      Thanks you, haha! When your no-buy is up, check them out!

      Thank you Brooke!

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    Those are beauties, Judy! I had been thinking about a glitter topper from Jouer, but I think I’ll get Galactic Love from NYX instead. Thanks!

    • BeautyJudy

      Ooooh, I love the glitter toppers from Jouer. I highly recommend those too. I picked some up at IMATS!
