Liquid lipstick must have become one of the most talked about beauty products last year. Even the 11 year old girls in my class were trying to get their hands on Kylie lip kits. For me the brand to look out for was NYX. The quality and price was too good to ignore. It wasn't long until I was wanting more and the Lip Lingerie range were on my radar.
The Lip Lingerie liquid lipsticks are a range of nude shades from cinnamon pink, to classic nude beige and every nude in-between. Each weightless lipstick has a creamy colour with matte finish and is packaged like a lipgloss. The hardest part was choosing a shade. Somehow I settled on Bedtime Flirt and have been hooked ever since.
Like I said, these liquid lipsticks are packaged like a lip gloss and so have the doe foot applicator. Personally I find these quite easy to use but I wouldn't recommend trying to apply this without a mirror. The formulae is quite mousse like when you apply it and it takes a few seconds for it to dry and turn matte. With that there can be a slight change of colour but it doesn't take long to have your finished look that will stay put for hours.
Like the other NYX liquid lipsticks that I've tried these are pretty long lasting. I've worn this during a night out of drinking and eating and only had to touch up towards the end of the night. If you were to wear this without eating or drinking much you're sure to be still wearing this hours later. Great for a day out with the girls but holds its own if it turns into a big night out! I also like that your lipstick doesn't transfer too much onto the glass, this definitely helps it stay put.
Matte lipsticks can be drying and also highlight every little dry bit on your lips. Because of the moussey formula I didn't find the Lip Lingerie lipstick to be at all drying. You do have to be careful to keep your lips healthy before applying though - exfoliate and a bit of lip balm can help out big time. There's nothing good about dry, cracked lips and adding a bit of colour on top isn't going to disguise it!
Are you part of the liquid lipstick fan club? What NYX Lingerie shade do I need to try next?
