Most people know the struggle of finding the perfect liquid lipstick. Finding something that lasts, comes in a variety of colors, and doesn’t break the bank can be a difficult endeavor.
But NYX cosmetics is here to solve your lipstick woes with a single line: Lip Lingerie. These little tubes somehow accomplish all that high-end brands promise at a much saner price point. For only $7, you get a richly pigmented lip color that stays strong all day.
Available in a variety of 24 nude colors (hence the lingerie name) that are flattering on a broad range of skin tones, the liquid lipsticks promise superior staying power. But do they live up to the hype?
After grabbing a couple of colors at my nearest Ulta, I put them to the test. They applied smooth and buttery, pigmented in a single swipe. A second layer made the colors richer and deeper. The doe foot applicator is basic, but is sturdy and functions as it should.
On the lips, the liquid lipsticks were comfortable to wear for an extended period. They weren’t very moisturizing, and I could definitely feel them on my lips, but they didn’t dry up and flake off like some other liquid lipstick brands (looking at you, Urban Decay).
I managed to eat breakfast, a snack, and a moderately greasy lunch without any sign of fading from the intrepid lipstick. I also have a bad habit of licking my lips, but the lipstick didn’t budge. After about 7 hours, I did need a bit of a touch up. But at such a low price point, I didn’t feel an ounce of guilt about piling it on for the rest of the day. In addition, it faded evenly so I didn’t feel foolish before I reapplied.
After several wears, I’ve noticed that this does crease a bit throughout the day, but I have yet to find a liquid lipstick that doesn’t. Overall, this is excellent liquid lipstick that lasts through a whole day with only one application. And at such an affordable price point, I’m eager to test out some other lip products from NYX.
