NYX Cosmetics Lingerie Liquid Lipstick
I was a complete liquid lipstick virgin before biting the bullet and purchasing this one from NYX Cosmetics. I had only the reviews from fellow beauty blogger and YouTubers to go by, so I was restrained and only bought the one to trial. I’m not one for spending time perfecting my lippy, so I was quite apprehensive this product wouldn’t be for someone as haphazard as myself.
“Slip into something seductive with Lip Lingerie, our new weightless liquid lipstick with a plush matte finish. Available in a range of colour-kissed nudes—from cinnamon pink and chocolate brown, to warm mahogany red and classic nude beige—each sultry shade will coat the curves of your lips with irresistibly creamy colour.” – boots.com
It promises a matte finish, and it’s not wrong. When this stuffs on, there’s no need to worry about it going anywhere for the rest of the day because it does not shift. After eating a huge roast dinner (mmm), along with a generous glass of white wine, the lipstick remained firmly put. I always say that a sign of a good lippy is when you cannot scrub it off. Colour stained for life? That’s ok. Despite being extremely matte, the formula isn’t drying or flaky. Can we get a hallelujah? I feel like that is the number one complaint about liquid lipsticks.
Having said that, I am unfortunately aware that the product is on my lips when I’m wearing it. Although a lightweight formula, I am conscious of it being on my lips which is why I tend to stay away from glosses. I mean, am I being fussy? Of course I’m going to be aware of a product on my lips, but I love lipsticks because they don’t weigh me down. It doesn’t have a scent though which is an added bonus for me.
The selection of shades available are very ‘Kylie Jenner’, with loads of nudes and brown based shades, there aren’t any fun bright colours to play with. However, NYX’s Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks are all vibrant and striking shades and they’re basically the same formula.
My liquid lipstick is in the shade ‘Exotic’, and I am so impressed with the pigmentation. It glides over my lips incredibly effortlessly and really does provide fantastic colour pay off. I struggled to keep the shade within the lines of my lips, particularly on the upper lip, it liked to escape and feather out, but it’s nothing a little concealer cleaned up. I’m not sure if this is a typical trait in most liquid lipsticks?
+ True matte finish
+ Very pigmented
+ Incredibly long-wearing
+ Isn’t dry or flaky
+ Limited range of shades
+ Struggled to keep within my natural lip line
8/10. Can I buy more please?
