NYX Lip Lingerie Review & Swatches


I have been trying to get my hands on these lipsticks for MONTHS. I saw a lot of people using these lipsticks in the US but couldn't find them in stores in Canada. Finally Shoppers Drug Mart and Lawtons now carry the line! I got my hands on three shades: Embellishment, Bedtime Flirt, and Baby Doll. As you can tell the names stick with the "Lingerie" theme, and the shades do too. They're all faded pinks, nudes, browns, and purple/grey shades. 

Much like Lime Crime Velvetines or Kylie Lipkits, these are liquid to matte formulas. They do tend to show EVERY SINGLE crease on your lips, so unless you have lip fillers or naturally puffy lips I suggest exfoliating and moisturizing your lips before every wear. I find all liquid to matte formulas a bit uncomfortable, it does feel like a solid thing sitting on your lips but the colour and look make it worth it. I know the upclose photos make you really see that, but that's honestly how liquid lipsticks wear and that's not how close people actually are to your lips. Personally I like mixing these shades together, since Embellishment is a little much for my skin tone if I mix it with Baby Doll it makes the nicest pink-grey shade. 

These lipsticks are a great alternative to the pricey ones currently on the market. To be honest the shades they carry are way better and more practical than most others. You can buy these for 9 dollars Canadian each. I don't even believe a lipliner is crucial to getting these on well, so even less cost. 

Have you tried any of the Lingerie Lipsticks yet?

  1. Have you tried the soft matte lip creams? If you have, how do they compare to them?
