Here is the new product from NYX, which is the duochrome lipstick
I personally wasn’t really impressed by this lipstick the moment it appeared on the market, but I was positively surprised with the results when I received it for testing purposes!
The packaging is transparent and made of plastic, through which you can see the real color and amount left The stick itself is not shakey, everything works alright The cap closes very well
The lipstick has 3 g of the product and retails for $9.
I have the gorgeous ‘Bless Adorable’ shade
It’s purple with a hint of blue!
I’ve been trying really hard to catch the true color of it with my camera. It really is purple!
I took these pictures when it was cloudy outside, but I couldn’t convey this beautiful overflow when it was sunny either
The texture of the lipstick is very nice and soft. It reminds me of a chapstick. It’s so buttery and glides so well even on my dry lips! I was taking these photos when my lips were dry and flakey, but the lipstick applied really well!
So, I worried in vain. It doesn’t emphasize dryness and flakiness of my lips. Moreover, it doesn’t dry them out even when I wear it for quite a long time. It applies amazingly well after a lip scrub or a lip balm. No dry patches
Here is how it looks in the sun and in the shade
The second thing I worried about was that I would have a white streak in between my lips, because the hue is actually complicated.
However, it doesn’t crease after 9 hours of wearing on its own. Also, it doesn’t crease even when used as a lip topper after 13 hours. I was impressed!
I thought this lipstick would definitely be challenging
By the way, it doesn’t have any smell about it, which is a huge plus
The maker also claims that it can be used as a lip topper. At first I didn’t want to check it, but then I couldn’t help it!
The results turned out to be really cool! I combined it with lipsticks of similar shades, so that duochrome could look even more beautiful
I tried it with the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade Istanbul and it was stunning!
Here is a before and after shot. It looks sooo cool in reality!
I was wearing it this way at work and had it 13 hours on my lips. This duochrome lipstick doesn’t impact on the lasting power of the Matte Lip Cream. When the matte lipstick was fading, I was simply touching it up with the duochrome. I reapplied it only twice, given that I was eating some patties that day. The wear time is great!
However, it disappears after eating some greasy food like chicken sticks, etc. It doesn’t smear, by the way, which is very good. You can just tap your lips with a tissue and reapply the lipstick
Also, I tried to use it with the Urban Decay Vice Lipstick, but I didn’t like it. The effect was beautiful, but the two lipsticks blended together and the duochrome was applying streaky after that.
However, it looks like an amazing metallic lipstick
In addition, I tried it with the purple Lime Crime 2 Moods Velvetine Liquid Lipstick Duo and it was divine! It looked like a stunning metallic lipstick with a foil effect and a pronounced blue overflow
Doesn’t dry out lips
Looks amazing even on dry lips
Doesn’t smear or bleed
Can be used without any lip liner
Looks amazing when used with liquid matte lipsticks
The wear time is alright, but the lipstick can be layered easily. I touched it up just a few times within 13 hours and just once within 9 hours
Comes off beautifully and gradually without leaving any streaks
Survives after snacks very well
Removes from my lips effortlessly
And here are the cons that are not really cons for me:
Do not use with other lipsticks, because the colors can blend together
Such a shade may not be suitable for everyone
All in all, I love it and wear it at work with great pleasure. It never lets me down. Checked This product turned out to be even better than I expected.
I definitely give it 5 stars and will gladly recommend it to a friend!
