Lingerie looks sexy on the body and now NYX has found a way to make lingerie look sexy on the lips too. The new Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks are a seductive line of nude lipsticks in deep, sultry shades that aren’t your ordinary nude lipsticks. They’re a range of funky, sexy nudes that look great on light and dark complexions with a sexy edge that makes them irresistible to even the most natural nude lip lover. That’s why the NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks have been consistently flying off the shelves at Ulta months after their release.
I’ve picked up a handful of them myself a while back because I really love the colors that NYX whipped up. I live from brown and grey toned nudes because they’re easy to pull off on my brown skin without fear of looking chalky or ashy. Embellishment quickly became one of my favorite nudes because it’s so darn pretty and unique and now I’m quickly falling for Honeymoon. Honeymoon is a deep mauve-brown with a cool grey undertone that’s very easy to pull off. Especially if you like cooler nudes.
However, the NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick formula isn’t quite as easy to pull off as the shades can be. Honeymoon goes on smoothly and evenly with full coverage and a lightweight whipped mousse texture that feels creamy upon application. As it dries, it feels slightly tacky and once it fully sets it’s a bit drying. You definitely have to prep your lips well before applying Honeymoon because the ultra matte finish well emphasize the texture of lips accentuating every flake and dry spot. It’s best to moisturize with a rich hydrating lip balm first because Honeymoon can definitely get drying as it wears on throughout the day.
I have to give it to NYX for creating such a long lasting line of nude liquid lipsticks though. Honeymoon manages to stay put for a little over 7 hours before I notice some slight fading. However, the formula isn’t easy on the lips so you’ll more than likely end up tossing a little gloss or balm over Honeymoon before the day is over to keep it from sucking all of the moisture from lips. I really wish the NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks weren’t so drying because Honey (and Embellishment, too) is such a gorgeous nude that I can see myself wearing a lot if it wasn’t so rough on my dry lips. If you have very dry lips, I think Honeymoon and the rest of the NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks are an easy skip as they’re just too drying over time. However, if you’re used to the drier side of the liquid lipstick world then I think you may not mind the NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick formula too much and should give Honeymoon a try. The color truly is beautiful!
