The NYX Lip Lingeries are described as weightless liquid lipsticks with a lush matte finish. What's interesting about this collection is the colour selection - it exclusively covers every shade on the nude spectrum - from classic nude beige, chocolate browns and babydoll pinks, there isn't a nude shade, or skin tone, that's left out of this range. What I love most about this collection is how flattering the tones are. I generally tend to stay away from pinky nudes and classic beiges as I just don't think they flatter my skintone, so when two of my Lip Lingeries looked quite pale, I was worried that I'd got it wrong with my choices. These are the most flattering shades that really adapt to your skin tone, so NYX have really hit the nail on the head in terms of colour choice.
As I ordered the shades online, I kept it quite safe with my colour choices and chose a couple of shades that my friend Emily had mentioned in her review of the lipsticks. I picked up the shades Lace Detail, Embellishment and Push Up. There are a couple of more colours that I want to try out, so I'll be sure to update you all when I get my hands on some more! This is a great range for anyone who, like me, is desperately coveting the Kylie Jenner Lip Kits, as they're very similar in colour - the real Kylie-esque nudes!
In terms of formula, these are really excellent products for the price. As I said, they're matte lipsticks. They initially apply quite tacky, not sticky, but you can definitely feel them when you put your lips together. The consistency is quite thin, so I generally apply a layer, allow it to dry, then go in with another layer. It dries completely matte, but it takes a minute or so for the lipstick to go totally matte. Naturally, as they are matte lipsticks, they are a little drying on the lips but they are actually really comfortable on the lips all day long.
The most important thing to me when it comes to lipsticks is the longevity. These are by far the best liquid lipsticks I've ever tried in terms of staying put all day. From the moment they set on the lips, they're there until the end of the day. Even when I swatch them on the back of my hand they're pretty hard to remove, so that's a good sign!

The NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks are available from Boots.ie now and are €9.25 each. So you get three for the price of one Kylie Lip Kit, and they're easily available - what's not to love?! I couldn't recommend these enough, and I definitely see myself owning the whole collection before I'm finished...
