Review | NYX Lip Lingerie Lipstick in Embellishment

I feel like this blog is slowly starting to turn into some sort of liquid lipstick shrine as I feel like that's all I mention on here! Today's post is another of the matte liquid lipstick variety and it comes from NYX. I know everyone loves a Soft Matte Lip Cream and as much as I like them, I don't think the longevity is the best so I decided to try a Lip Lingerie Lipstick instead. It was really hard trying to pick just one out of the range as they are all such pretty neutral shades but in the end I chose the NYX Lip Lingerie Lipstick in Embellishment.

About the NYX Lip Lingerie Lipsticks:
"Slip into something seductive with Lip Lingerie, our new weightless liquid lipstick with a plush matte finish. Available in a range of colour-kissed nudes—from cinnamon pink and chocolate brown, to warm mahogany red and classic nude beige—each sultry shade will coat the curves of your lips with irresistibly creamy colour."

The NYX Lip Lingerie Lipstick in Embellishment is a very pretty neutral grey-based mauve shade which applies ever so slightly darker than the shade which appears in the tube. For your money you get a 4 ml thin tube of product which has its doe-foot applicator within the lid. The applicator is rather slim and long so you can apply a pretty precise applicator without a lip liner. Like most other liquid lipsticks out there, the NYX Lingerie Lipsticks too have a rather unpleasant chemical smell to them. Fortunately the smell doesn't linger too long on the lips after application but yes, the scent is definitely noticeable!

The Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks dry completely matte and once applied, it dries almost instantly. I suffer from dry lips occasionally and luckily this doesn't show up any dry areas or feel heavy or drying on the lips. Embellishment felt really lightweight and comfortable to wear and most importantly, it lasts so much longer than the Soft Matte Lip Creams! I usually feel like the Soft Matte Lip Creams don't really dry down or stick to the lips so every time you move your lips the lipstick just transfers onto everything but fortunately the Lingerie Lipsticks last much longer. Don't get me wrong, it does fade ever so slightly but it's nothing that a re-application won't sort out.

Overall, I think I really do much prefer the NYX Lip Lingerie Lipsticks to the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. Whilst the colour range in the Soft Matte Lip Creams is much more vast and varied, I much prefer the formula to the Lip Lingerie's. Embellishment is a really pretty grey-based mauve which, whilst it won't be for everyone to begin with, it does look less scary on the lips than it can appear in the tube.
