When it comes to liquid lipsticks NYX has a lot of options available. Be it Liquid Suede or Soft Matte Lip Cream, recent addition in my stash is NYX Lip Lingerie liquid lipsticks. I went through number of swatches online before buying 3.
Packaging is simple plastic tube which is transparent. You can see the shades inside and choose whichever you would like to wear. The cap is black. and shade name is written on the bottom. The range is focused on shades that can be good neutral or nude colors for various skin tones. If you are looking for a suitable shade for your complexion, do check the shades in this line.
Shades – I picked NYX Lip Lingerie in Bedtime Flirt, Ruffle Trim, Exotic. Bedtime Flirt is a pink brown everyday color, Ruffle Trim is a peachy-brown nude and Exotic is a reddish brown. First two are more like a my lips but better shades and can work really well for smokey eye makeup looks. Exotic is quite dark, but my favourite out of all the 3.
Texture & Formula – NYX Lip Lingerie has smooth creamy formula that glides on smoothly without getting patchy on the lips. Formula is nice and non-streaky, however these set quite quickly so best is to apply or layer them quickly otherwise you wouldnt get an even finish.
None of the shades turn patchy or crack throughout the wear. I like how the formula doesn’t peel or blotchy even after meals etc. Since it is a long wearing liquid lipstick , lips do feel dry after a while, but nothing unpleasant if you prep them before hand.
Pigmentation – To my surprise all the 3 shades were quite pigmented. Lighter shades tend to look sheer on my pigmented lips but these were quite opaque I always use a neutral lipliner with NYX Lip Lingerie Bedtime Flirt and Ruffle Trim.
Staying Power – Good 6-8 hours on me with a little fading from the inside of lips after a full meal.
NYX Lip Lingerie Bedtime Flirt, Ruffle Trim, Exotic are priced at Rs 650, available
I like these lipsticks because of the smooth texture and long wearing yet comfortable formula. There are 16 shades to choose from and you can find a nice nude shade for your complexion easily.
