Today I have a quick review for you all! I feel like I haven’t done one of these in awhile, as I’ve been doing more lipstick/palette reviews than anything else lately. A few weeks ago, Ulta had a buy 2 get 1 free sale on Nyx cosmetics, so I got a few things that I needed, and snagged this for free. It’s a newer product that Nyx came out in lieu of the liquid lipstick trend.
I was waiting for an affordable brand to come out with something like this, it’s genius. I own quite a few liquid lipsticks, and there are a few that are a pain in the butt to remove without also removing half your makeup. I’m someone that enjoys wearing several lip colors a day at times, so not having that option without reapplying all of my makeup is disheartening.
So, now this product is in my possession and I have tried it out enough to let you all know what I think about it!
Amount of Product: 0.43 fl oz
What it claims: “This remover thoroughly conditions and pampers the lips while effectively wiping away long-lasting color.”
Consistency: This is a pretty thick formula. I actually wasn’t expecting this to be so thick, but it did take a bit for me to squeeze the product out. It’s thick and has a very slight pink shade to it.
How it works: You don’t need much of this at all, and what I do is just dab it on the top of my lips and then use my lips to work the product around. This doesn’t taste bad or have an intense scent, so that’s a good thing. It does have a bit of an oil to it though, and you’ll see the lipstick you’re wearing start to slip off gently.
I then take a wipe of any sort and gently wipe the color off my lips.
My general thoughts: This is a pretty nifty product, and one that is worth the $5 if you wear liquid lipstick often. It did remove some of my heavy duty shades like “Dr. M” by Colourpop and my LaSplash ones and kept my lips feeling smooth instead of chapped. If you recall my Colourpop review, I was having a hard time removing Dr. M (bright green) without looking like the Hulk had a makeout session with a green alien.
I will say that because there is an oil in this, it can slip around and darker shades can then feather out and get around your mouth. I fix this by putting concealer around my mouth if I’m reapplying lipstick directly after.
The littlest bit of product goes a long way, so this tube will last you a bit. I did notice that with red and berry shaded colors this product will not fully remove any staining on your lips. However, I do feel this product is meant more for the Nyx Liquid Suede lipsticks, which makes sense.
In that case, this product works phenomenally, but the Liquid Suede lippies are not too difficult to remove to begin with. I have never had a problem with any of them, even the red ones, staining my lips at all. So, if you get them for those, this product is perfect.
I still don’t know if this product makes it possible to switch colors easily since it doesn’t remove staining, but it does make it easier to remove liquid lipstick without smearing it all over my face, thus giving me the appearance of a glamour-clown.
What are your thoughts on this product?
I hope you all enjoyed this fairly winded, yet short review! As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you stop by my blog again soon!

This is awesome! I totally didn’t know they made a product like this!! I own some of the suede lipsticks and I agree they are not too difficult to remove. Nonetheless, I totally want to try this product!
Hmm I feel like you don’t really need to purchase a specific product to remove lip colour… you honestly could just use straight up OIL. Or even Vaseline, or a thicker lip balm. I’ve done that before for lip colours that stain and they’ve worked wonderfully. $5 isn’t that expensive but seems like a one trick pony!
I was hoping it would make it easier to trade out shades for doing swatches so that’s a bit sad 😦 Butttt the fact that it can get liquid lipstick off is quite impressive! Great review Hulk-green-alien-kisser! Hehe 🙂
I have as well, and I usually use a straight oil at night, but during the day or when I’m filming a lipstick review oil can remove more makeup than what I want, and it becomes a pain to reapply makeup around my mouth and irritates my skin a bit
Haha thank you! That’s what I was hoping as well, I do so many lipstick reviews on youtube that switching out colors can irritate my mouth and around my mouth SO BAD.
It’s pretty new! I stumbled on it on Ulta’s site and don’t remember anyone saying anything about it!
Me neither!! It looks really awesome!!
