NYX Lip Lingerie in Lace Detail and Bedroom Flirt.
The past few weeks I have been wearing the NYX Lip Lingerie, every, damn, day. I had been eyeing them up for a while but only got around to ordering them recently. I have been curious to try NYX out for a while, ever since they landed on Boots online. After being tempted by everyone on Instagram, looking so great in the Lip Lingerie, I decided that is where I would start. At only 6.99 each I thought I couldn't go too wrong, so after some pretty intense research (about an hours Instagram spree) I chose the shades Lace Detail and Bedroom Flirt.

The formula is lovely. Very matte but applies smoothly, evenly and is really easy to work with. I find that I don't even really need a lipliner for everyday, making them very quick and perfect for busy mornings. The staying power is amazing. I go most of the day without any reapplication, even after eating a giant burger (Sunday proved this) which means they are super low maintenance. I am terrible with touching up my make up throughout the day and generally rather lazy, so they are an all round winner for me. The staying power however does also mean that they can be a little tricky to remove without the right stuff but anything oil based works a dream!

A slight (but expected) downside is that being so matte, means they are a bit drying. I am someone who suffers with unusually dry lips so I have a bit of a battle wearing any lipstick on a regular basis (it doesn't stop me, of course!) but even I didn't find them any worse than any other matte lip colour, possibly even a little better. As long as I maintain my lips with balm and a lip scrub, like the Lush ones, I am fine, even with my sandpaper lips. God, I am such a catch?!

Are you a NYX fan?
