What is it about lingerie that brings a man down to his knees, and can make a woman feel oh so sexy and confident in her own skin glamour babes? Is it the soft feminine hues of pink and nude? The black lacy texture of a beautiful bra and panty set? Could it be the silky feel of stockings? Or maybe the racy garters??? OR is it the curves of the lips looking softer than nude satin sheets in NYX Cosmetics Lip Lingerie ($7) tying it all together?!
I am 100% sure it is all of the above, but I am talking lipstick here, not the Victoria Secret Fashion Show! I'm sorry boys, I hope my seductive little introduction didn't excite you too much, I was trying to make my review sound enticing to the goils, lol! I gotta be honest here, I'm not really the type who struts her stuff in a nude lip, I feel a bit washed out when wearing them. So, after much deliberation by watching YouTube videos, and viewing beautiful arm swatches on Instagram of the twelve shades available (10 out of the twelve swatches below via NYX website),
I thought it was time to step out of my comfort zone and slip into the plush side of liquid lipstick. Exotic and Bedtime Flirt gave me that bit of confidence I needed in the nude lip department.
Exotic is a stunning warm mahogany red.
Bedtime Flirt is a red toned pinky nude.
Not to toot my own horn or anything, both shades do look pretty hot on this redhead, talk about a confidence booster!
It's no wonder why NYX's Lip Lingerie has been sold out for the last three months, they are simply gorgeous! Thank you Ulta for replenishing the NYX stock!
These twelve shades are not the run of the mill nudes in my opinion, the lip lingerie collection has a lot more warmth, and depth to them with beautiful tones of reds, purples, pinks, rich browns, and earthy nudes. The formulation of these liquid lipsticks are highly pigmented, opaque, creamy and are practically weightless once applied and have set and dried into a velvety matte finish. It feels like you are wearing nothing that's how comfortable they are to wear, almost like you're in the nude! Hahahahaha! Get it?! Makeup humor. Seriously though, these matte lipsticks do not cake, crumble or dry out, the formulation keeps the lips pretty hydrated if you ask me. Each tube has a lovely oval doe foot wand, making outlining and filling in the lips precise, easy and beautiful.
NYX's Lip Lingerie staying power lasts all day, and is completely kiss proof, and transfer proof. I haven't seen any lip stains on my coffee cup, smudged lipstick from eating breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and no kiss imprints left behind that I gave the hubby this week! I think he may have dropped to his knees because of this kiss proof experience, lol. I'm crushing all over NYX's Lip Lingerie liquid lipsticks, their performance has been nothing but stellar! My lips have never looked or felt this irresistible in a nude lipstick! I'm almost tempted to buy a few more and really show my flirtatious side 😈.
Stay beautiful! Xo.
