NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams VS Collection Cream Puff Lip Creams

Hi everyone! Now that March has rolled around and Spring is upon us I've been getting a lot more into lip products, I know it sounds daft but when it's freezing cold in Winter I can never be bothered to put anything on my lips apart from lip balm because I need as much moisture as possible! However when the weather starts to change (it's still really cold in the North East don't get me wrong) I love going through my collection of lip products and wearing some old favourites again. I've seen the Collection Cream Puff Lip Creams being said to be dupe for the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams for ages, and since I have both I thought I'd do a little post on my thoughts as I've been reaching for both these products a bit more recently. 


I just want to point out that I'm really not a liquid lipstick person, I've tried them and they just aren't for me, however I absolutely love lip creams like these, they aren't drying and they apply really well but I think you still get the pigmentation of a liquid lipstick without them being too matte. So if you're like me then I'd definitely recommend both of these products as an alternative to a full on liquid lipstick.

There are so many ways in which these products are really similar to each other, packaging wise they are basically the same, I actually think I prefer the packaging on the Collection product because I like the cute little illustration and the font, that sounds so daft but I just think it's cute! Another way they are really similar is the scent, both have the same very sweet vanilla scent. I personally love the scent but for those of you who aren't too keen on heavily scented products you might not like it, however once applied on the lips I don't think you can smell it at all. The NYX product however is 8ml compared to the Collection product being 5ml but I think this is reflected in the price anyway. The Collection Cream Puff Lip Creams are priced at £2.99 from Boots which is so good, I think it's such an affordable product considering the quality is also really good. I think these are actually up there with my favourite drug store products, the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are £5.50 from Boots so it's also a really affordable product. I never really like to say that the Collection lip creams are a dupe for the NYX lip creams as they are both so similar in price, both good quality and very affordable, so I don't necessarily think that the NYX products require a dupe if that makes sense? 


NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams: Antwerp, Stockholm, Athens


Collection Cream Puff Lip Creams: Fairy Cake, Cotton Candy

In terms of formula again I think they are both very similar, they both aren't drying on the lips and they apply really easily, I love the mousse like formula because I think when products like these are too thin they can be really messy and hard to apply. The main difference I think is that the NYX lip creams are slightly more pigmented, and require a bit less product whereas you need to apply a bit more with the Collection lip creams. I also think the NYX lip creams have a little bit more staying power. Don't get me wrong though I absolutely love the formulas of both of these and would completely recommend them both! I just think the formula of the NYX lip cream trumps the Collection lip cream a little bit, a big thing for me though is accessibility of the products, it's so easy for me to go out to my local Boots which has a Collection stand and pick up their lip creams, whereas there isn't a NYX anywhere near me so I have to order online, I had to do this for all the shades I own and I can't swatch them beforehand to tell if I really like the shade. I think I'm more likely to repurchase the Collection lip creams because of this as they are so easy for me to get hold of.

An issue I have with the Collection lip creams is the very small shade range, there are only four shades and the other two that I don't have didn't really appeal to me so the two shades that I own are basically all I am ever going to own unless they release more shades which I really hope they do! The NYX lip creams have such a big shade range that there is definitely something for everyone. Out of the shades I own my favourite from the Collection range is Fairy Cake, I absolutely love this for Summer I can't wait to wear this for Summer days out! From the NYX range my favourite is Stockholm, I actually think it is very similar to Velvet Teddy by MAC so anyone who likes this shade would love that one.

I don't necessarily think that one of these products is better than the other, they are both different but similar at the same time and I actually recommend owning both of these because they are so affordable and so good for your makeup bag! The quality of both is so good considering they are drugstore and I'm really glad that I own the two because they are both as good as each other. Let me know in the comments if you've tried either of these products and what you think!

  10. I plan to haul NYX soft matte lip creams soon, I have long been a fan of the range. Shame Collection is not easily available here in Canada, I've read really great reviews on the brand.

  13. I think I'm the only one who doesn't love the Nyx Soft Lip Creams, haha, I'm not a fan of the mousse- like texture but I was super excited to try them. I may pick up the Collection ones to see if I may like them better. x

  16. I haven't been able to try either of these but I've heard the Nyx liquid lipsticks are amazing! I also hate products that are really drying so both of these sounds good, especially at that price.

  22. You can definitely see that the NYX ones are much more pigmented and the one thing that put me off the collection ones was the range of shades available (not a lot at all). Either way though they are both fab options :) x
