I'm certainly a massive fan of NYX Cosmetics, and therefore it may come as a bit of a shock to you all that I didn't actually possess any of their Lingerie Lipsticks in my rather large collection up until very recently (and by very recently, I mean a couple of weeks ago). Of course, I had wanted to purchase one of the Lingerie Lipsticks for a very long time, after seeing several people swatch, review and post about them - however, whenever I visited my local Boots store, I sadly discovered that they seemingly had every other lipstick in the entire NYX lip collection, apart from the Lingerie ones for some unknown reason...
Then, just a couple of weeks ago, to both my shock and excitement, on a spur of the moment journey into Boots, I saw the whole Lingerie Lip collection before my very eyes. To say the least, I was very happy indeed, and thus proceeded to swatch just about every single shade of lip product onto my hand in order to find out just which one I should purchase and take home with me. As a big lover of nude lipsticks, the decision was a very difficult one to make (especially when you're as poor at making decisions as I am anyway), but in the end I settled upon the lovely, yet rather light nude shade of Corset which, like every other lipstick in the collection, cost just £6.50.
And, after trying out and loving this product, I thought I would create a little round up about the details my Lingerie Lipstick, and provide a sort of review on it...
Shade - to be perfectly honest, this light nude shade is actually quite different from anything that I have ever owned or tried before, and this is actually one of the reasons why I love it so much! With it being rather light, Corset is perfect for wearing on daily basis, especially when I go to Sixth Form and don't really want anything too bold on my lips, but still like to know that I am in fact wearing something on my lips - what's more, despite being rather light, this colour definitely doesn't wash me out in any way, shape, or form, which is especially great at this time of year when I am looking particularly pale (and I mean seriously pale!), and instead seems to work really well with the simple make up looks that I sport most days.
Finish - the Lingerie range of lipsticks are described on the Boots website to be 'weightless' and with a 'plush matte finish', and if I am going to be truthful, I must say that these claims are actually spot on! When the lipstick itself has dried, it does in fact feel as though you are wearing little on your lips, which is perfect for someone like myself who tends to wear such a product on a (near enough) daily basis, as it doesn't feel heavy, thick or tacky at all. As well as this, as a great lover of matte lipsticks and matte finishes, I was really happy to see just how lovely and matte this product looked when dried - due to it's inexpensiveness, I wasn't really expecting it to live up the matte qualities of MAC and all the other lipstick giants, but from what I have seen so far, NYX really have gone all out with this lipstick and it's matte finish, to me, looks rather perfect.
Quality - as well as the finish and colour of this liquid lipstick being rather fabulous, it's staying power is also pretty good considering it's price tag. Of course for only £6.50, it is to be expected that this product does start to come off the lips upon eating and drinking, but on the most part, before that, it does seem to stay in place for a good amount of time - what with this shade of lipstick being pretty light as well, you can't actually really see that it is starting to disappear after eating and drinking, so if you can't immediately get round to reapplying it, it definitely isn't so much of a big deal.
Would I Buy Again? - put simply, yes. Yes it would certainly repurchase this product, and have in fact (like with several other of the NYX lipsticks before it) been feeling rather impressed with this marvellous liquid lipstick and all that it offers for such a low price. With so many other shades in the collection, I'm definitely going to find it hard to resist the temptation of buying yet another of the Lingerie Lipsticks rather soon, and already have my eye on a couple of the darker nudes which look really really lovely indeed.
Overall though, despite the long wait I faced when it came to getting my hands on this lipstick (in hindsight, I really should have just gone ahead and ordered myself one of the Boots website, but never mind), I can now finally say that I have one in my possession....and am actually very happy to be able to say so, because I really am loving wearing my Lingerie Lipstick and to be honest, can't wait to get myself over to Boots very soon to buy a couple more.
