Every year, NYX drops a ton of new products on us and you know 2017 is no different! In fact, NYX is coming even harder this year because they’re trying hard to transition themselves from a drugstore brand to professional brand. And rightly so because that’s a huge jump. So NYX has to come guns blazing to truly nail it. Which means brand new products and shades! Whoop whoop!
One of the many new releases NYX has up their sleeves this year includes the recent expansion of the Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick lineup for spring. Some people hate them, some people love them. I happen to agree that they’re considerably drying but I obviously have a thing for the shades because I just can’t stop buying them. Damn you, NYX!
The Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks require a lot of preparation including a heavy duty lip scrub to remove every single flake and an ultra nourishing lip balm to keep your lips from crusting until they fall off. However, they’re still embraced and widely tolerated because NYX whips up some pretty unique shades that are sometimes hard to dupe or either close dupes to higher end lipsticks.
The Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks aren’t the best, obviously, but for 7 bucks a pop they get the job done and make a sexy statement every time. Which probably explains why NYX not only held on to the Lip Lingerie line but also expanded it with 12 new shades. I scooped up 7 of them including:
- Confident muted plum
- Bustier dusty mauve
- Cashmere Silk midtone beige
- French Maid muted mauve
- Delicate Lust greige
- After Hours warm brown nude
- Cabaret Show dusty rose
There’s a few shades in the mix that we’ve certainly seen before and can probably be easily duped. Like, Bustier, Cashmere Silk and French Maid. There are a couple of shades that you don’t see quite often like Confident and Delicate Lust. They’re both gorgeous shades of brown that’ll look amazing on both light and deep skin tones. I’m especially excited to see Confident and Delicate Lust for my dark skin beauties though because they’re effortless nudes that look amazing on deeper complexions. And we could always use more WOC friendly nude lipsticks!
To be honest, all of the shades I picked are pretty brown girl friendly. Especially with a good lip liner. Of course, you’ll still need to mega scrub and over moisturize your lips prior to applying them. And probably drink lots of water throughout the day. Otherwise, the new NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick shades are good to go! If you don’t mind the drying formula, I say they’re worth a try for a cute liquid lipstick on a budget.
