NYX Strictly Vinyl Reviews, Swatches and Look

Hello beauties, I’m a huge fan of a glossy finish, be that on the lips, eye lid or the skin, there’s something just so appealing about high shine looks. I recently come across NYX’s New Strictly Vinyl range and knew that I had to collect a few of the lip glosses and two of their liquid liners. I wanted to share my thoughts, some lip swatches and a basic editorial style look.

Shamelessly shiny and super pigmented, Strictly Vinyl lip gloss from NYX Professional Makeup is music to your lips! This beyond glossy goodie is available in eight plush and pigment-packed shades that you’ll definitely want to add to your playlist. Hardcore colour and intense shine is always just a few swipes away.


• Creamy metallic-matte

• Waterproof finish

• Smooth and precise applicati


There’s not really much to be said about the packaging, if you’re already a NYX fan then you will notice that the packaging is the same as the Liquid Suede lipsticks. The gloss is housed in a sturdy cylinder and is larger than the average liquid lipstick. I really like the Doe foot applicator, it’s just the right size to cover my lips and makes it super easy to apply.

Formula & Wear

First thing I have to mention about this Gloss is that it’s sticky, so if you don’t enjoy that feeling then you will hate this. I don’t mind it however and love a glossy lip so this is perfect for me. Even though it’s a gloss it still has great colour payoff and doesn’t bleed out on the lips. I don’t ever expect a gloss to wear well, it’s just not the nature of it so wasn’t too surprised that this didn’t stay put when eating or drinking but was no problem as it’s super easy to reapply. I think the colours will be perfect for autumn for those who a glossy lip.


There are 8 shades in the range, that are all aimed on the grungier side. These cost £7 and be found here

Shades ‘femme fatale, bombshell, baby doll and bad girl’

Ready to give the Strictly Vinyl™ Eyeliner from NYX Professional Makeup a spin? Take your pick from the five epic colors included in our vibrant catalogue. Featuring a flexible and slim brush, this high-shine liquid eyeliner glides on effortlessly and delivers an intensely lacquered look you’ll want to rock again… and again!


*High shine liquid liner

*Flexible slim brush applicator

*Rich, fully pigmented color payoff


When it comes to eye liner I prefer a thin applicator, which this product has. It’s small enough to be able to freehand a sharp wing. I wouldn’t recommend this if you are a beginner how ever as using any fluid eyeliner is tricky to get neat.


The texture of this is a thick fluid. It’s super smooth and doesn’t look dry on the lids when it dries down. I’m so pleased it’s a jet black, some liners dry down and don’t look that dark but this one definitely has intense pigment. Also loving the glossy finish, it’s something I’ve never seen for a liquid liner.


There is 5 shades in the range which cost £6 each which I think it amazing, I will be picking up the rest of the range to spice up my usual winged liner. If you’re interested in buying you can find them here.

Using the ‘black’ liquid liner and ‘femme fatale’ lip gloss.

    I’ll be honest I don’t think I’m a fan of that black gloss. It looks good on you but I would be worried about it smudging and transferring all over my coffee cup and my face! I love the second shade though!
