As soon as the NYX Lingerie collection was available on the Boots website, I knew I had to get my hands on them. These are a range of nude liquid lipsticks which are said to have a “plush matte finish”.
When I was choosing my shades I really had a difficult time finding swatches that match my skin tone, so I really just took a guess. I ended up getting 3 of them; Embellishment, Bedtime Flirt and Teddy
Bedtime Flirt – This one is by far my favourite! It’s a pinky with a slightly peach undertone on me. It’s just such a wearable colour for everyday.
Embellishment – I’m not so sure if I like this on me yet. It’s a very bold choice and I’m not sure I’m in to bold lips at the moment. This is more of a purple-ish shade with greyish undertones and honestly I’m just not sure how I feel about this one on me. I think lighter skin tones would definitely like it a bit better.
Teddy – This is a chocolatey brown shade which is so beautiful. It is more a vampy nude so it’s again more of a bolder choice. The only thing I noticed with this particular shade is that it takes a while to build up. I’m quite sure why but once you do build it up, it looks great!
Overall, I don’t think there’s anything particularly unique about the formula, and I feel that they’re quite similar to the original matte lip creams. However, they are super long lasting and affordable, and a lot of people say that they are a great dupe for the Kylie Jenner lip kits (even in terms of the packaging).
If you’ve tried these out, let me know what shade and what you thought!
