Nyx lingerie first impressions & swatches

This year has seen the rise of the matte liquid lipsticks and I have to say I am a true fan. I love a good matte lip whether that be in the form of a lipstick or a gloss! I love the durability and the finish. Therefore when Nyx launched their range of matte lip glosses I knew I had to get one ( or three). I was able to grab three while I was in Thailand, you are able to purchase the lingerie liquid lipsticks at boots in the UK for £6. The three shades I managed to buy were Push up, Lace detail and Satin ribbon. This blog will be describing the packaging, application, durability, and finish.

Firstly I think the packing is great, it's sleek and strong so you can chuck this item in your makeup bag without the worry that it's going to smash. I like the fact that you can see the shade of each gloss without having to open it. The writing on the packaging is classy and simple. The wand is a doe foot applicator I find it stern and not flimsy which is good however I would have preferred a tapered lip wand  as it is easier to get into the edges of the mouth.

The Nyx lingerie glosses have a mousse consistency, which makes it more hydrating compared to other formulas and glides on. The finish is matte and it sets matte within a couple of seconds. I do however find that you need more than one coat, the first application applies a little opaque. The formula is a little bit sticky, but that's not too much of a problem unless you keep putting your lips together.

I did find that these liquid lipsticks did last for a while, although there are others on the market that last longer I was, however, able to do my errands for the day without having to keep topping up my lipstick. It took several wet wipes and scrubbing to remove the liquid lipstick swatches.

Overall I really like this range from Nyx, I think for £6 you really can not go wrong. I am planning on purchasing more from the collection.

Satin Ribbon
I would describe this shade as a nude pink colour, it is similar to Lace detail except I find Lace detail to be darker and a slight beige shade.

This is my favourite shade from the collection so far, I would describe it as a mauve pink shade.

Lace detail
This is a nudish pink/brown colour, it's great for an everyday look or if you do an extreme smokey eye to make the look for subtle you can pop this on the lips.
