Hello there! Let’s talk about the new product from NYX. Packaging
: it’s a plastic tube with a screw on wand top cap. The applicator here really reminds me of the one from the Fenty Beauty brand.
Product quantity: 3ml
Shelf life: 12 months of opening
Shades names: undercover babe, negotiator, dexter.
Texture: oily and very thick
Application: Thanks to the convenient applicator, the lippie glides over my lips, contouring the edges. The consistency is smooth and it covers up my lips with pigments.
Staying power: The lip color isn’t long-wearing because it’s a lip gloss saturated with pigments after all.
I advise you to apply it over a lip liner!
I’d like to speak about the Dexter shade more. This is a red saturated lip color, which is utterly difficult to apply. You can tame it, of course, but you’ll have to have a pile of q-tips and micellar water then. Is it worth wasting time? We all know that red lipstick has to have precise contours but this babe doesn’t want to be tamed.
I appreciate that the formula doesn’t leave any tinting stain behind on my lips. I guess that the color might be the only good thing about this product.
Swatch on my hand:
Makeup: Shade - Uncover Babe: Shade Negotiator: Shade: Dexter:
Impressions of use: The line up is full of different colors, which are pleasant to look at and are really mesmerizing. I love them despite the shitty staying power and staining formula. I can’t wear them for some special occasion, that’s logical but after all, no one has ever promised that these are long-wearing. I don’t believe that the formula is skin-friendly but the fact that it doesn’t dry out my lips is true. :)I can’t assess them with all 5 stars because they are too difficult to tame and the risk that they’ll let me down is too high.
Rate: 4 stars for the nude, 4 stars for the purple color and 3 stars for the red lippie.
Overall: If you still want to buy a lippie from this collection, then I can recommend you pay more attention to the nude shades so as to minimize the risk of its visible budging. I won’t hurt them for the budging or tacky formula. I have YSL iconic matte lip colors, which have the same staying power and performance. But those also leave my lips stained like there’s no tomorrow.
