ITEM OF THE WEEK: NYX Lingerie XXL Matte Liquid Lipstick
Sometimes I can’t believe that I was ever a lip gloss only type of girl. Don’t get me, I still love a good lip gloss that makes my lips look like wet glass. However, there is just something about matte lipsticks that make them look better on me. However, if you see me in a moody matte lipstick, there is a 95% chance it’s from the NYX Lip Lingerie Matte Lipstick collection. I just love the NYX liquid matte lipsticks so much.
Keep reading to see why.
There was a time when I just didn’t get the matte liquid lipstick phase. When they first became a thing many years ago, they were very drying on the lips. Although they stayed on a little longer than regular lipstick and didn’t smudge, it was horrible when they did. The lipstick would crack and look horrible. Thankfully, liquid lipsticks have seemed to improve over the years and NYX has proved that with their Lingerie Matte Liquid Lipstick.
Now, NYX liquid lipstick is available in a regular size tube, but I always grab the bigger option; NYX Lingerie XXL. I have bigger lips and find that the XXL is better to apply to fuller lips. While we are talking about the application, I must talk about the consistency. The consistency is very smooth almost like a soft mousse texture, which makes it very easy to apply. However, since this is a matte liquid lipstick, be very careful when applying. Liquid matte lipsticks are very pigmented and will apply a stain to your skin and this one is no different. So, if you are new to liquid lipsticks, I would recommend that you try the regular size tubes first to help work on your technique.
Although this matter liquid lipstick doesn’t dry out as much as they use to do, you should still make you your lips are well hydrated and moisturized before applying. You can do this by using a lip scrub, balm on your lips, and using a lip mask every night. Also, skip lip oils, because oils will cause the lipstick to not dry matte and smear like crazy.
The NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks comes in about 9 different shades, which are mostly nude colors. However, the XXL version comes in over 20 shades, with shades that range from beige, browns, reds, and berry. I’ve been gravitating more towards the berry and pink shades. However, I want them all, because these have been my go-to lip color options for the past few months. Yes, they are that good.
You can find these NYX Lingerie XXL Matte Liquid lipsticks at NYXCosmetics.com and most NYX retailers, including Ulta.
