Hi everyone! I hope you’re all well.
Today I wanted to do a little beauty review of the NYX Lip Lingerie in Ruffle Trim.
This is such a weird one for me.
I love how this product goes on; it’s totally matte, really smooth and creamy, and a gorgeous colour, a nude brown with peachy and slightly rusty undertones. However, what happens after it’s applied, is what makes this not a great product for me.
I have worn this about 5 or 6, maybe even 7 times now, and within those times, around 3 of those I found that the first few strokes of it were a tad watery and lacking in pigmentation. I don’t think that the pigmentation is consistent throughout the formula at all.
Similar to the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, I found that this got quite crumbly throughout the day. The lasting power was also not great; if you just wear it to go about your day and don’t eat or drink (what a sad existence), then you’ll be fine, but if I eat or drink with this on, the middle section completely disappears and I just have a rather dry and crumbling formula around the edges of my lips.
When you first apply this, you feel like it’s going to be horribly drying, but it actually dries completely matte and smooth and feels slightly hydrating if anything.
I don’t know if I simply got a bad batch, or the wrong shade, as the formula is always going to be slightly different for different colours, so I will definitely purchase some more colours and see if they are the same as this one.
All in all…a nice finish and colour, but the formula lets the whole thing down. Also, for £7.50 which is £2 more than the Soft Matte’s I don’t think it’s worth it at all for a product that has shocking staying power.
What do you think of the NYX Lip Lingerie‘s?
All my love BGP xx
