I am so in a NEUTRAL LIPSTICK phase you guys, the obsession is real and today’s post is dedicated to one lipstick that is such a gorgeous neutral, albeit, with a bit of a twist. I am talking of a moment of serendipity that I had with the NYX Lip Lingerie in the shade TEDDY.
NYX Lip Lingerie , available for Rs 650 at Nykaa.com
Now, the beauty world had been raving about the NYX Lip Lingerie ever since they were first launched in the US, however, it wasn’t until NYX came to India (thanks to Nykaa!) that I got to explore this wonderful range. The shade TEDDY was really a chance that I took, without being completely convinced if I really wanted this type of shade. But boy! I am just so glad I picked up this lipstick cuz it’s sheer love.
The NYX Lip Lingerie comes in a transparent tube with the color showing through. It has a squared tip applicator and a light whipped mousse like consistency. The way it applied on the lips was such a refreshing change from the liquid lipstick fad that we are following these days. The formula was smooth and pigmented and applied opaque in two coats. It stays for 6+ hours on my lips and gently fades from the centre with snacks and meals and requires a touch-up thereafter. I also love the fact that these are not quite drying though they don’t even necessarily fall in the hydrating lip color category. Another good thing is that with the satin-y kind of finish that these have, they don’t even cling to the dry patches on the lips or accentuate fine lines. With the Lip Lingerie, you can also take the liberty of skipping the lip liner because they don’t feather or bleed and stay put within the lines you apply them in. Also, they don’t gather in the corners of lips like many satin or cream lip products.
The shade TEDDY is a medium yellow brown with definite grey tones. It is a neutral for sure, but not your everyday neutral. Rather, I would say it’s a neutral with a twist.
The NYX Lip Lingerie is essentially a great formula that combines the best of both a satin lip color and a liquid lipstick. If you are a lipstick addict and haven’t tried any of these yet, you are definitely missing out on something.
