I wasn’t going to post about the NYX Exotic Lip Lingerie Lipstick til next week because I didn’t want to talk about another nude(ish) liquid lipstick this week – I have a theme that I’m trying to stick to after all – but when I did my makeup today, it was the only colour that matched my makeup look within an arm’s reach (my laziness knows no bounds).
After posting about lipsticks 7 days in a row – with the majority being liquid lipsticks – for the #365LipstickDays Lipstick Challenge, I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m more than ready to start incorporating more cream lipsticks into my collections as my lips have started to protest. On one hand, I am SO tempted to just slip in a few lipglosses into this challenge so that I hit my daily quota but on the other hand, I feel that be a bit of a cheap shortcut . . . . so let this review on the NYX Exotic Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick commence!
If you have ever tried any shades in the NYX Lip Lingerie range, then you already know how this liquid lipstick from NYX behaves on the lips but if you haven’t then pull up a seat.
The NYX Exotic Lip Lingerie Lipstick – £7.00 via Boots – is a “mahogany red” liquid lipstick with a plush, matte finish that has been designed to feel weightless on the lips without breaking the bank. I do think that the NYX Exotic liquid lipstick sits in the ‘nude brown lipstick’ family on dark skintones but it would really depend on the shade of your lips as the red undertones in this lipstick can tilt it into the dusty pink family if worn without a brown lip liner or on its own.
The NYX Exotic lipstick’s doe-foot applicator is very easy to use and allows the Lip Lingerie’s mousse like formula to glide on my lips without dragging. I get about 4 hours wear before it starts to fade and it is very easy to layer different this lipstick on top/beneath other shades for an Instagram ombre effect which is the most important thing.
I think the NYX Exotic Lip Lingerie Lipstick is a lovely shade at an amazing price point and I can’t really think of any real reason why I wouldn’t recommend it but I would warn you that it is not particularly hydrating on the lips so wear a lip balm!
The NYX Exotic Lip Lingerie Lipstick costs £7.00 and is available to purchase from Boots.
