Sneak Peek: New NYX Lip Lustre Glossy Tints (Platinum Perk Early Access Today Only at Ulta)

I think I mentioned earlier that I'm now an Ulta Platinum member for the first time ever, and with Platinum status comes some really nice perks. As you all know by now, Platinum members recently received a special 20% off discount code that does not exclude prestige cosmetics (aside from Clinique, Lancome and Dermalogica), and today we received one-day-only early access (6/28 only, now through 11:59PM Central) to some brand new lip colors from NYX (check your emails for a unique link to purchase these if you're Platinum). And you can of course use your 20% off code with these if you want to buy them today.

But since I know that a lot of you are not Platinum members at Ulta (again, I was not either until very recently!), I thought you might want to see the new NYX Lip Lustre Glossy Tints before they are available to all Ulta customers.

The new NYX Lip Lustre Glossy Tints retail for $6.99 each. They are 0.27 oz., which means they're the exact same size as the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. They will be available to all Ulta customers starting 7/12 online, and in stores starting 7/24.

There are twelve shades in this range.

From left to right:

Mystic Gypsy
Rustic Mirage
Retro Socialite
Love Letter
Violet Glass
Juicy Peach
Ruby Couture
Antique Romance
Dark Magic
Liquid Plum

From the Ulta website:
  • Lavish your pout with extraordinary shine and a hint of brilliant color with NYX Cosmetics' Lip Lustre Glossy Lip Tint! Silky smooth with a lightweight finish, this revolutionary formula glides on a gloss and adjusts to a gorgeous tint that lasts. (Yep, it's amazing.)
  • Simply swipe directly onto lips. To create the illusion of a fuller pout, apply a bit of extra gloss in the center.
  • Ingredients (Mystic Gypsy): Water / Aqua / Eau, Polybutene, Octyldodecanol, Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate, Caprylic / Capric Triglyceride, Isononyl Isononanoate, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Butylene Glycol, Diisostearyl Malate, Dimethicone, Trimethylsiloxyphenyl Dimethicone, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Beeswax / Cera Alba / Cire d'Abeille, Alumina, Barium Sulfate (CI 77120), Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance / Parfum. May Contain: Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Blue 1 Lake (CI 42090), Red 6 (CI 15850), Red 7 (CI 15850), Red 28 Lake (CI 45410).

The ingredients vary slightly from shade to shade, so I just copied the ingredients list above for the first shade, Mystic Gypsy.

Lip stains and lip tints are my weakness, so I am EXTREMELY excited about this new launch. I don't own any of the YSL Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stains ($36), but that's what immediately came to mind when I thought of what these might be a nice alternative to--if I'm overlooking a more obvious dupe, please comment below and let me know?

If you're an Ulta Platinum member, will you be ordering any of these today? If you're not Platinum, will you be giving these a try when they're available in July?


  1. I've been debating all day... I wanna use my 20% and hate paying for shipping, and I wanna try these early but kinda want to wait till tomorrow to see what the beauty break will be :/ How many lip products could I need?! They just look so interesting!

    1. I have my basket ready to go and am waiting for a beauty break too hahaha great minds think alike

    2. I just searched beauty break on their site and there is now a 4-piece buxom gift with any $50 purchase :) the nyx lip lustres were still in my cart so I just went ahead and placed my order (hopefully it doesn't get cancelled), even though there probably will be their usual weekly beauty break on top of that later today!

  2. Im still waiting for them to put the cosmic lip creams in store so i can get a few :D

  3. I am Platinum and I didn't receive an email about this. I also don't see them on the site and I am signed in.

    1. Same. I didn't get the e-mail either.

  4. I already used my platinum discount to buy a couple of the Urban Decay lippies, and then they send this!

    1. I was able to use it more than once!

  5. I'm signed in and have platinum status but I don't see these. 😕 I wonder what gives?

  6. I didn't get anything about a 20% or the NYX lippies and I'm platinum too. I just contacted through the site and asked why. If and when I hear something back, I can report back.

  7. I did not receive this either, and I buy so many Nyx products! I would love to see a swatch of Violet Glass. I used my 20% discount in store, and then used it again for an online purchase.

  8. I wrote to CS and asked why I didn't get my 20% code. They got back to me in 24 hours and gave me a personal one use code to use :) So, if you ask, they do try and make it right.
