Pros: dries out quickly, highly pigmented, isn’t tacky, long wearing, really matte, saturated color, stunning shade
Cons: easy to break down, small value

Hello, lippie maniacs!

One more red beautiful lippie in my collection! Oh, I’m in love with it, girls! Smile

NYX Full Throttle Lipstick in the color #12 SANDMAN.

The packaging is stylish and very thin. The product has a color-coded top cap. If you open this top cap you’ll find a matching lip gloss.

It’s rather difficult to open though, so ask you husband/boyfriend to do it.

I like this lip gloss and I can say that I use it from time to time and I like the way it looks on my lips.



Price: $6

Product description:

It's the color addicts ultimate fix and a makeup artist's dream: NYX Professional Makeup's waterproof Full Throttle Lipstick covers your lips with a super saturated matte color and features a unique bullet with a beveled edge for lining, filling and perfecting your pout to your heart's desire.

How to use:

Apply directly to lips. Use the defined edge of the uniquely shaped bullet to line your lips, then use the flat surface to fill in color.


The shade is just amazing! It’s so intense and complicated that I’m wordless and can’t find the right words to describe it.

The color varies from carroty to brick dust color, from vinous to right shaded red color. Sometimes I look at this lippie and the color really reminds me of the Russian Red lipstick by MAC.

The stick of the product is small and thin. This is the only disadvantage about the product. The stick is easy to break down. When I opened the product for the first time I found out that the stick was already partly broken at the bottom. I know that this is the problem that many people face. But the shade is so gorgeous that I’m not ready to throw it away.

I appreciate the tip of the product which allows me apply the product evenly without a lip pencil. Of course I’m a little bit upset that the product is too small but the shade is worth every dime!

The way I feel with the product on my lips is so comfortable that I even have an impression that I wear a creamy lipstick and not a matte one. It never tightens my lips or makes me feel discomforting feelings. The product never stains cups or anything, unless, of course, you rub it on for the purpose of smudging it.

The staying power is wonderful. I wear the lippie the entire day and I don’t have to touch up every hour. Of course after a meal I do touch up but only in the center of my mouth.


And on the lips:

The product is totally matte, it doesn’t leave stains or look patchy. It never feathers or defines flaking. But I don’t have flaking though. Maybe if you do, you'd better exfoliate and moisturize your lips before the product application.

And here are the pictures of the product with a lips gloss over:

The color looks brighter. But the finish is glossy and I know that a lot of people don’t like glossy finishes. I’m positive about glossy and matte finishes so, I do wear both.

Total look:

The product looks different in different looks. It feels as though the lippie adjusts to my mood and weather outside. Since it’s autumn now, I’m anticipating wearing this product with warm cardigans to enliven my look.

I definitely R E C O M M E N D this NYX Full Throttle Lipstick and I’m sure to buy some more colors as well!

I hope that you've found my review interesting.
