The NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP Lip LingerieLipstick comes in a transparent lip gloss tube on which the brand and collection names are embossed. It also comes with a black cap that closes securely. As for the applicator wand, it is quite long compared to those of other lip gloss brands. Yet, its doe foot is fairly thin, which allows you to shape your lips perfectly.
This Lipstick collection is made up of 24 different colors, most of which lean towards earthy shades. However, we noticed that many of these liquid lipsticks give off almost the exact same color upon application. So it is best that you try out the color shades before buying any, especially the similar ones, in order to avoid buying two of the same color. If you’re into vibrant colors like bright red, keep in mind that this collection does not offer any.
- Cabaret Show: A dark rose color at a first glance, but gives more of a dusty tone upon application.
- French Maid: A muted mauve color.
The texture of these liquid lipsticks is more whipped and mousse-like, versus the usual watery texture you see in liquid lipsticks.
The Lingerie lipsticks have a strong and unpleasant odor that might irritate you during application.
These liquid lipsticks hold down well on the lips and don’t fade out easily even when exposed to water or food, so you will definitely need some makeup remover wipes to wipe them off completely. In comparison with other matter lipsticks, the NYX Lip Lingerie last longer and don’t transfer to what they come in contact with, whether hand or glass. Moreover, what distinguishes them is that they take a few seconds to dry matte on your lips, which allows you to adjust the color as you wish.
On a different note, there are some negative features we noticed about the NYX Lip Lingerie. First off, just like several other matte lipsticks, they dry out the lips and bring out the cracks on them. So you should definitely exfoliate and moisturize your lips prior to application, otherwise you will shortly notice the flakiness. We also noticed that the colors don’t settle on the lips as they appear through the tube. That’s another thing you should look out for since they tend to appear darker and dustier on the lips. Other than that, make sure to avoid consecutively applying two layers of these lipsticks, for you will achieve a totally different color than perceived through the tube.
The NYX Lip Lingerie retails in Lebanon at 11.2$, which is comparable to Maybelline New York Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick sold at 12$ and is less pricey then L’Oreal Paris Infallible Les Macarons sold at 16$.
