Hello friends! I filmed an Eyebrow Tutorial!

NYX Lip lingerie swatch and review

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

Ever since NYX launched their Lip Lingerie's, I've been wanting to get my hands on the product.

My love for their Soft Matte Creams left me sure that I would love it. When I finally crawled out of my selective lazy hole to submit to cosmetics capitalism and buy this product, I waited weeks till I had the time to open it and pen a review for first impressions. 

I'm not impressed.

Color: My lip lingerie is in Teddy. The color is beautiful and pigmented! The shade Teddy does exactly what I wanted and expected it to do. I personally wanted a close-to-tone-matte lip and when I first swatched the product, I was content.


Consistency/Product Texture: I would say that the product is medium/thick and it's easy to apply, however it does dry fast. 

Dryness: This category is what broke the product's value for me. Whenever I use matte products, I always make sure to exfoliate, moisturize, and prime my lips before application. While I do know that, matte leads to dryness at times I try to avoid that as much as possible. With NYX's Lip Lingerie in Teddy, my fool proof route seemed to fail. The minute the lippie coat set, the product settled into the lines of my mouth and left me feeling very uncomfortable. Thinking it was just the way I applied the product, I tried to put on another coat, then a third, but the moisture left and the lip set, the dryness was there to stay

I basically kept the product on for about 30 minutes before taking it off and applying something else before I had to go to work, which is why I was not able to test out the last factor.

Longevity: 

Personally, I would'nt buy this again. There are many other products that will allow me to achieve the same look for more comfort- a color from the soft matte lip line could do the job.

While NYX Lip Lingerie's were all the buzz when they launched, I feel as though they are overhyped.

Till next time,

Victoria
