NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks | Review & Swatches

The NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks finally arrived in the UK some time last week and everyone went crazy for them...including myself! 
At first, I was really unsure of which shades to go for... the swatches on the website were fairly similar and I wasn't sure which tones would be suitable for my skin tone, but in the end, I settled for Bedtime Flirt, Embellishment and Teddy. A few days later, I placed a second order for the liquid lipsticks and this time, I opted for Exotic and Ruffle Trim.
Here are my thoughts : 

Bedtime Flirt is a beautiful pinky shade which has peach undertones in it and I think it's a lovely every day nude. On my skin tone, its slightly on the lighter side but it's wearable. If you think it might wash you out a little, its worth pairing it with a slightly darker lip liner. 
Exotic is one of my absolute favourites! I would describe it and being a muted brick-red/warm mahogany and it's definitely one of the bolder shades in the collection. I think it's so flattering on my complexion and I'm glad I managed to get my hands on it! 
Embellishment is a bit different from all the other shades in the collection - it's a purple shade with grey undertones and I think its a brave choice but I'm going to find a way to make it work for me. 
Ruffle Trim is like a darker, more coral toned version of Bedtime Flirt - it's a really pretty and really easy to wear. I think this shade would suit a lot of different skin tones. 
Lastly, Teddy is a gorgeous darker nude. It has a real chocolate brown vibe to it and I think it's brave, but it looks amazing on! 

The Lip Lingerie's are described as having a 'weightless, plush matte' finish and to an extent, I agree. In terms of application, they feel really creamy and then dry to a matte finish after a few seconds but in terms of the formula, I don't think they're too different from the NYX soft matte lip creams.

The Lip Lingerie's retail at £6.50 and I think they're really affordable, especially if you're on a budget. As with all of the other NYX products that I've tried so far, I think they're really good value for money and I've found that they're really long lasting on the lips as well.

 Some people have had mixed reviews on the product and have claimed that they apply really patchy and are extremely drying on the lips, but I personally haven't experienced that. 
I exfoliate and moisturise my lips before any lipstick application (especially if I'm using a liquid lipstick) and I find that it makes a massive difference! Definitely something to consider if you don't do it already.

    1. I really like them and I think for £6.50, it's worth a shot! x

  2. I don't know why but I have ruffle trim and it looks exactly like teddy. I wanted that peachy pink color :( At least it fits my face color tone.
