You need a particular light to get the most from the new NYX Cosmic Metals – on a dull day they look flat and uninspiring, but when the light hits them they’re pretty impressive in terms of metallic glimmer and sheen. Day to day, I have to admit, I don’t really see many people wearing a metallic lip so maybe they’re more Instagram than reality.
The new metals line up follows the sunset shade trend – although I think that the Cosmics are best in avant garde colours; checking on-line on the NYX site, those are the ones that are in the sale – the greens and the blues.
Colours from bottom to top are: Retro Harmony, Crystallized Metal, Metropolitan Night, Elite, Galactic Love and Celestial. The texture is a creme so to me these are more like liquid lipsticks than glosses. The new shades launch into Boots on 2nd August and everywhere else from 29th August.
