I recently picked up two of NYX’s Lip Lingeries in the colours Lace Detail and Teddy for £6.50 each at Boots. The line has 12 shades of nude and I went for a light and a dark. Lace Detail is described as a “nude pink beige” which is accurate on me as I am pale, and Teddy is described as a “warm rich brown”, which I wanted to get to try out the brown lipstick trend.
The texture of these lipsticks is creamy and thicker than I expected, and do end up drying down matte. I moisturised my lips before trying these but they still felt a bit drying, so that’s something to be aware of. However, the fact they dry down completely means they have extra staying power. I couldn’t remove these with a miscellar water, but with a make-up wipe or coconut oil they came off fine.
The thin applicator was useful for getting a precise shape to my lips and making the lipstick look neat.
