I’m a firm believer that some of the best makeup products don’t have to come with a luxury price tag, even more so now that the price of everything else is going up.
Many of my favorite products in my beauty routine cost under £10 and my new favorite is Nyx Professional Makeup Fat Oil Lip Drip Gloss.
It’s a tinted lip oil that blurs the line between makeup and skincare and has quickly become a regular fixture in my makeup routine.
It has proved extremely popular on TikTok, where I first discovered the new launch. User Nicolette Pennisi’s video showing how they look on the lips has over 700,000 views.
Meanwhile, beauty influencer Mango Monica’s video has a whopping 1.2 million views, and the hashtag #nyxfatoillipdrip has 11.3 million views.
Available in eight versatile shades from bubblegum pink to chocolate brown, I recommend it to everyone I know.
Lip oils are one of my favorite ways to wear color without commitment, and I’m always keen to avoid dry, chapped lips. This does both.
🛍️ Reasons to buy
Firstly, the price is fantastic and much lower than the leading lip oils on the market from Dior and Clarins which cost over £20 each.
I love the Newsfeed and Supermodel shades, two pink and red shades that are the perfect boost to your natural lip color.
They have a large doe foot applicator which makes applying the glossy formula easy to do in just two swipes and the consistency means it keeps its color and glossy finish for hours.
It’s a slightly tacky texture that helps the sheer color stay put without it feeling greasy. I love how low maintenance it is—you don’t have to worry about the formula smudging when you eat, and it’s easy to touch up without needing a mirror.
✋ Reasons to avoid
Since these are tinted lip oils, they don’t have the same pigment as a lipstick, so if you’re looking for a matte color, these aren’t for you.
Other than that, our only gripe is how quickly they sell out, making it a little tricky to get your hands on one, but it’s worth it, I promise.
💰 The best deal we have found
Nyx Professional Makeup Fat Oil Lip Drip Gloss is currently available exclusively at Superdrug. While there aren’t any deals on offer right now, keep your eyes peeled as the retailer is known for its flash sales and discounts.
However, if you want to buy a few shades rather than commit to just one, spending more than £25 will qualify for free standard delivery.
