A New Lipstick

Sunday, 9 April 2017

Sometime last year, my local Boots store finally got itself a NYX stand, and to celebrate such a momentous occasion I of course had to buy myself a lipstick! The lipstick in question was from the Matte Range, and was a cute shade that goes by the name of 'Strawberry Daiquiri' - it is in fact a lovely coral/red lip shade that I do still wear to this day (you can take a peek at my original review of this lipstick HERE), and due to how much I have found myself loving this lipstick over the past months, a couple of weeks ago I decided that it was about time that I ventured back to the NYX stand in Boots to buy myself another Matte Lipstick...

This time around, I kind of wanted to opt for a bit more of a nude shade (especially considering that my favourite nude lipstick 'Velvet Teddy' by MAC, is rapidly running out), and so after watching literally all of the nude-looking lip products available, I eventually opted for the shade 'Euro Trash'. For £6.50, I really don't think you can go wrong with these lovely Matte Lipsticks, as with 'Strawberry Daiquiri' I have so far got nearly a year of use out of a really beautiful, good quality lipstick... hence why, I had no problems with parting with my money this time around either!

Of course, I tested my new lipstick out at the first opportunity that I had, and just like last time around I immediately felt very happy with my purchase! Firstly, I just adore the shade of this lipstick - it's a great nude shade, with a sort-of pink undertone, which makes it really perfect for the spring months, and also really perfect for my pale skin, as it definitely gives me a bit of a colour boost. I must also say that the quality of this lipstick is excellent considering that it is in the drugstore price range - the matte finish of 'Euro Trash' is again really lovely, and the colour actually manages to stay on my lips for a very long time, and only needs a bit of reapplying following eating.

I thought I would also include a picture of me wearing the lippie, to give you a better idea of what it looks like on :)

As you can probably tell, I am a big fan of the lovely lipsticks that NYX offer, and in all honesty the fact that you can buy two of these items for the price of just one MAC lipstick, does often leave me feeling more inclined to head for the NYX counter...
