I think I’m late to join the whole NYX Liquid Lipstick hype, this is because I’ve never really known how to get my hands on NYX products. I then found out the they are now online at my drugstores in the UK so I’m super pleased and also I can found out I can order them from FeelUnique so I’m super excited about that! (If you go to my Instagram page you can find 15% off products at FeelUnique!)
The first thing I noticed was a lot of the shades are very similar to each other, they all have a brown/taupe look to them which is not always the most flattering on everyone’s skin tones! The one I chose looked like it had a mauve tone to it, the colour is Ruffle Trim. When I got this delivered it does not have any mauve to it, it’s actually a really hard colour to describe! I would say it’s a warm brown with tones of red/brick colour.
Even though I was a little disappointed with the shade I opened it up anyway because well that’s me! There is no overwhelming scent which is great, if anything maybe a slight sweetness but nothing noticeable. On first application the formula is very thick but not whipped it’s still thick but a liquid, the doe foot applicator is really weird though, it’s very long and straight, I wasn’t really sure which way was the right way to apply it! I then noticed if you turn the applicator on it’s side there is a slight slope, which to me is bit annoying. This liquid liptisck dries so fast! This has to be the fasts drying one I’ve found so far but not in a good way! This dries down so dry, far too dry for me personally, I feel as if it’s sucking all the moisture out of my lips! Also when it’s completely dry it’s not smooth even though I had took time in applying it smoothly, it cracked and settled into lines of my lips I never even knew existed.
Overall I really did not like this NYX Liquid Lipstick and I was really sad about it because I have seen so many people rave about it and use it, but honestly I could just not get away with it, I never actually wore it though the whole day because it just felt so uncomfortable on my lips! I hope you liked this review leave me a comment below I love to hear what you think, also go give me a follow on Instagram and I can be in contact with everyone more and share beauty/makeup tips!
