NYX Cosmetics’ Dazed and Diffused Blurring Lipstick collection

Twelve firmer lipsticks in wood cores, with a wide flat brush at the end. These are similar to the Buxom Plumplines - but they come in a wider range of colors. (For instance, if a blue ever shows up in the Plumpline collection, I’ll be VERY surprised!) These are firmer than traditional lipsticks and wider than most lip liners, so it’s easier to apply them with a solid edge. The wide brush is good for evening out the color, or for spreading a more-heavily-applied liner into the center of the lips. The color goes on very smoothly and easily, and it adheres to the inner parts of my lips - the part right at the edge of visibility, where most lipsticks won’t really hang on - very well.

I have two issues with this collection: longevity and color range.

The formula is smooth, saturated, and emollient; but they don't have as much staying power as the Buxom Plumpliners. They tend to stay wet longer, which means they transfer more easily. (I applied a color, and 10 minutes later made myself a sandwich. I ended eating most of that morning's lip color because it transferred onto the bread.)

Two standout colors to me are Roller Disco and Killin' It. I thought that Roller Disco would be a bit deeper - more of a purple-pink with some buff undertones. Instead, it's a cool pink that's medium-bright. I got Killin' It and thought that it might be a kind of nice, but also a little washed-out, red. It turned out to be a great color o me, and one of my favorite shades from this collection. While there are many colors that I like, I'd like to see more shades. I have several Shout Loud Satin Lipsticks, and about half of the Suede Matte Lipsticks. I would love to see some similar - or even some of the same - colors from those lines be brought across to this form and formula. (Cherry Skies, Copenhagen, and Sao Paolo immediately spring to mind.)

As of January 2021, this collection contained:

  • 90s Babe
  • Day Drink
  • En Fuego
  • Get Down
  • Girls Trip
  • Killin' It
  • Let's Party
