Review: NYX Chunky Dunk Hydrating Lippie!

NYX's Newest Lip Product!

NYX Chunky Dunk Hydrating Lippie
The Jumbo Lip Balms have struck again! NYX recently released they version of them, called the Chunky Dunk Hydrating Lippie... how cute is that name!? Haha. They currently have 12 shades to choose from, from nudes all the way to berries. The site claims that these will give you sheer wash of color that is buildable. Out of all the jumbo lip balms I've tried (which is a lot!) these were one of the most sheer. I love color and vibrant lip products so with that said these weren't my personal favorite. I can see how many would like'em though because they are perfect for minimal makeup looks.
These retail for $6 each, I managed to get 25% off with the coupon code Welcome25 when I placed my order online so it wasn't too bad. The color payoff within the ones that I purchased wasn't consistent. I was surprised to find that the nude and berry were more pigmented than the pink one. They are hydrating so I do give them that! Your lips will feel amazing after using these. My issue with that is these are really creamy, so even though they're hydrating they move around and just rub off easily. The tip of the nude shade broke off as soon as I swatched it, I just tried to put it back together for the picture above haha. So sometimes a creamy product isn't always the best. Other than that, these are pretty good for just a wash of color. The berry shade was the only one that was buildable which is expected for being a darker color. Here are the swatches:

From left to right:
*Peach Fuzzy- a nude with peach tones, the creamiest of the bunch which you can tell by swatch haha. Goes on smooth and looks amazing with natural and smoked out looks!
*Watermelon Cooler-  a rose pink, my least favorite from the bunch. It's too close to my lip color so it really just gave off a shine and that's it.
*Berry Mojito- a fuchsia pink with berry tones, this one wasn't too opaque at first. It took a few swipes to get it to look like the tube. But I love colors like these so I'll be using it quite often!
Here are the lip swatches:

These aren't meant to be balms or stains so they don't have any menthol scent/taste. The glossy finish is something I really like about these, most Jumbo Lip Balms don't leave this type of shine behind. They last about 2 hours before you have to reapply.
Bottom line: If you're wanting something sheer that is low maintenance than this product is for you! I personally prefer bright colors that are opaque in just 1-2 swipes. Don't get me wrong, for work and days that I don't want to look too done up I will use Peach Fuzzy or Watermelon Cooler. I like the fact that I can use these on the go without having to use a mirror. So it has its pros and cons. Since the Butter Glosses and Lipsticks were so raved about (well deserved I might add!) I thought this would be similar but it's not. I don't plan on repurchasing any other shades, I'm content with the 3 I have. :-)


  1. These look so pretty, defiantly going to have to try them!

  2. They're really nice!! :-) If you try them let me know how you like them! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Great review, thanks! I didn't realize these were so creamy! That's good news for me though, since I have super-dry lips LOL.

    1. These are super moisturizing so you'll love them!! :-D
