Well, so fall is here already and though the entire year so far had been dominated by dark vampy colors, I personally feel FALL is the best time of the year to sport dark goth colors with much elan. I have been drawn to deep rich wines and burgundy shades for quite a while now and had been hoarding them like crazy. The NYX Full Throttle Lipstick in Night Crawler was the result of that and I have been really enjoying this lipstick for the past few weeks and here’s my review on it.
The slender lipstick bullet with a unique bevelled tip comes in a plastic casing and has a plastic cap that closes firmly but sometimes I feel a little unsure about it. There is no click sound that would make me feel sure about the closure. Other than that it felt firm and I wouldn’t quite mind travelling with it.
The shade Night Crawler is deep rich burgundy with tones of wine soaked raisins. It is quite a unique shade among the lot of vampy shades in my vanity.
NYX Full Throttle Lipstick Night Crawler applied smoothly and delivers rich, saturated color in one stroke. This is my first tryst with the full throttle lipsticks and I am mighty impressed. The lipstick, despite being so dark gave even color on one swipe that also covers all of my lip pigmentation. It applied smoothly, felt like a gel-creme formula and within a few minutes sets to a matte finish. It does not move at all, even with full meal and drinks later. It might just fade a tad bit in the centre of the lip though, but that’s nothing noticeable. I have worn it for as long as 6-7 hours and the performance remained flawless. It needs a proper lip makeup remover to take off completely and leaves a strong berry tint behind.
Overall, I am mighty impressed with the NYX Full Throttle Lipstick Night Crawler and am totally enjoying it during this season. The color is rich and saturated, the bullet applies smoothly and sets into the perfect matte finish without any kind of dryness. If you like dark vampy shades or are planning a gothic inspired makeup for some event, look no further. The Full Throttle lipsticks by NYX are totally worth every penny.
P.S. : I have another shade from the range called Locked that I would be reviewing soon. Keep watching this space for more!
