Ever since I discovered that Boots had finally stocked the Nyx Cosmetics Lip Lingerie Lipsticks, I knew I had to get my hands on them and see how great they actually are (spoiler alert: they’re fab). Whenever I buy lipstick shades online, I always do some extensive research on the different shades. For example, I will watch YouTube videos to see the shades on similar skin tones to mine and I will read what us bloggers have to say about the lipsticks. It is so different shopping for lipsticks online as you cannot swatch the shade and the computer screen can show up the lipstick as being a completely different shade to what it actually is, so it is always a good idea to do a bit of research before purchasing. After having a look around the web, I decided on these two shades of Lip Lingerie: Push Up and Bedtime Flirt.
Nyx Lip Lingerie in Push Up
This shade is a gorgeous, light toned nude which I absolutely adore on my fair skin tone. When I was researching the different shades, I was starting to worry that they may be a little bit too nude for my skin; I still have nightmares about the concealer lips trend of the noughties and try to avoid stepping near it at any cost. However, Push Up is just about as light as I think I could go with a nude lipstick and I think it looks really nice. I also love the durability and wear of these Lip Lingerie lipsticks. They feel so lovely when being applied and they dry quickly down to a beautiful matte shade. They are really hard to get off at the end of the day which indicates that they are a strong lasting liquid lipstick which is something that everyone wants. I do usually have to reapply as I get my standard line where my lips have been wet but all I do is try and get as much of the product off and then I put on a new coat. I did try just reapplying over the top of the older coat but this made it much more crumbly and bitty which was really uncomfortable to wear. Fear not though as they do apply wonderfully on the first go and they really do last a long time on the lips.
Nyx Lip Lingerie in Bedtime Flirt
This shade was one that I had been wanting since before these Lip Lingerie lipsticks were available to purchase in the UK. I first fell upon the shade when I was researching Kylie Lip Kit Candy K dupes. The moment I saw the shade Candy K, I knew I wanted one similar. It is so hard to get hold of these lip kits and to be honest I am tight when it comes to shipping and custom charges so I really wanted to find one available to me in the UK. When I stumbled across swatches of Bedtime Flirt against Candy K, it went straight on my list. Obviously, I do not have the Candy K lip kit but the Lip Lingerie shade, Bedtime Flirt, has satisfied my craving for Candy K. It is a beautiful pink nude, but not too pink, and looks so nice against my fair skin tone. As you can see, it is a tad darker than Push Up but it still makes the perfect nude shade. I would say if any of you UK residents have been wanting to try out Candy K then maybe give Bedtime Flirt a shot as it is said to be a close dupe for that shade.
