Please say that I'm not the only one who is excited that NYX is now available at Boots? I love this brand being so accessible to me, even if my bank balance doesn't! A few months ago I deliberately went online shopping at Boots just for NYX and I tell you I had a field day adding all sorts of makeup goodies to my online basket, it's such a satisfying feeling don't you think? As you guys know I'm a sucker for a lipstick or two, especially when that lipstick is liquid, has a matte finish and is in a nude shade; You can pretty much guarantee that I'll want it and it has my name all over it. For what seemed the longest of time, I was lusting over the new NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks; a whole range that it dedicated to all different types of nude shades. I had to pick up a few to add to my lipstick collection and see what all the fuss was about; I tell you I am obsessed lol. These are some of the nicest lipsticks that I've tried in a long time, if you've seen any pictures of me over on Instagram or Snapchat, you can guarantee that I'll be wearing one of my Lip Lingeries in it. I love them so much I thought I'd share with you the ones that I picked up, so you can see what they look like close up and once on.
Exotic is one that I've been reaching for a lot, it takes a whole new twist on the nude lip as I actually find its got quite a red/pink tone to it. It's really nice to find a nude shade that actually adds some warmth to your lips and I love how rich and opaque the colour is. When I want a nude with a little more sass, this is the one that I will reach for.
Bedtime Flirt is easily the most wearable nude shade that I picked up. Its your classic nude and great for everyday wear. I find that it has a slight pink tone to it, which makes it feel a little more girly and feminine. It's dark enough that it doesn't wash my lips out, but not too bold at the same time.
Embellishment is the one shade I wanted from the collection, but the one that took me forever to get my hands on as it was constantly sold out online. Its a recent addition to my makeup bag, but already I love it. This nude is like no other I own and I have to say its absolutely stunning. It has a greyish/purple tone to it. I was drawn to it as it reminds me a little bit of Lime Crimes Cashmere, although I've never actually tried it so can't fully compare. However this ones probably a little less grey and a little more purple, which actually I prefer. It's something that's really different for me, but I am so obsessed with this shade, so much so that I think it might be my favourite.
Honeymoon is the darkest nude that I picked up and I love wearing this when I'm trying to release my inner Kylie Jenner. I would describe this as a brown toned nude and although its not the darkest brown in the Lip Lingerie collection, its definitely quite dark on me. I think I can pull this nude off just about, but I wouldn't dare to go any darker.
Overall, I love these lipsticks. I love how opaque they are, how easy they are to apply and their matte finish means I'm totally winning! They are long lasting, but I find that they can wear quite quickly after food and drink so a re application is needed, but nothing major there. I really want to add some more to my collection, but I don't know if I can justify buying anymore nude liquid lipsticks right now!
Let me know what shades you like and if you have any that I don't please let me know how you're getting on with them.
