Hello! everyone. Welcome to my series of 31DaysOfNudeLips wherein I shall be sharing, reviewing and swatching 31 different shades of Nude lipsticks. I am (and will be forever) an ardent lover of nude shades. They are so apt for everyday wear, be it college or office. By now, you already know me! (so no more justifications). October is my birthday month and I want to celebrate it by sharing a nude lip shade every single day. Also, I shall not be mentioning those lipsticks which I’ve already reviewed on my blog. Hoping you enjoy this series as much as I do, let’s begin in no particular order. The lipstick that I’ve chosen for Day 14 is NYX Lip Lingerie in the shade Exotic.
Price: Rs. 650 for 4ml product.
Availability: I get my NYX product online from Nykaa. There are NYX stores/counters in selected cities as well.
Packaging: NYX Lip Lingerie comes in a transparent tube which reflects the shade of the lipstick. The wand is long and has a very thin applicator.
Texture and pigmentation: NYX Lip Lingerie has a thick creamy mousse texture. It renders full coverage in a couple of swipes. The formula takes a couple of minutes to set after which it becomes transfer-proof. The finish obtained is velvetty matte.
The shade Exotic is a gorgeous brown with pink mauve tones to it. The shade will flatter majority of skin tones. It has a not-so-pleasant chemical fragrance.
My verdict on NYX Lip Lingerie:
I have fallen in love with the creamy formula. It is apt for everyday wear as it is non drying and feels comfortable on the lips. NYX Lip Lingerie lasts for a good 4-5 hours with lunch and drinks. I don’t have to worry about touch ups because this shade is an MLBB (My Lips But Better) which, even when fades, doesn’t look crazy. Myu lips are crazy dry and this lipstick doesn’t do anything to worsen that dryness. You definitely must exfoliate the lips and moisturize them before applying this lipstick as it might accentuate the lip lines then. If you are looking for a comfortable matte lipstick which is not drying and stays for a pretty long time then NYX Lip Lingerie is a good option to consider.
