NYX has a makeup series called Lingerie that contains matte liquid lipsticks and creamy eye shadows. I got them in a goodie bag a while ago and it has itched my fingers ever since! In today's makeup I have tested both of these in a down to earth look and thought to show it and at the same time give a first-use review :)
Face primer - Paese Makeup Base (Matte)
Foundation - gloMinerals Pressed Base (Golden Medium)
Powder that neutralizes redness - gloMinerals Redness Relief Powder
Contouring - Pixi Book of Beauty Contour Creator
Rouge - gloMinerals Blush (Papaya)
Fixing mist - Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist
Dehydrating powders - Paese Bamboo Silk Powder
Eyebrows - gloMinerals Precision Brow Pencil (Brunette)
Application - If you apply a thin layer, it is very nice on the lips, but with this shade, I think that more applications are needed to get a comprehensive result. At least on me who has such colorful lips even unmade up that shines through. Dries fairly quickly and then you can easily apply another layer.
Feeling - With more layers, the feeling is quite dry, not as terribly-dry as the Full Throttle lipsticks from NYX that I can not wear on the lips, but quite dry just like most matte liquid lipsticks. I personally prefer softer matte lipstick, but this works without problems anyway, but I recommend a little lip balm underneath.
Color - I have the shade Embellishment and I LOVE it! So good looking! Perfect gray-pink beige (or what do you say?). Super nice!
Sustainability - Holds incredibly well on the outer lips, but on the inside it becomes dry and itchy after about 3 hours, which either disappears when you eat or looks snuff dry. Then you have to take a piece of paper and remove a little and improve again. And it goes well as long as you are aware of it :)
Application - There is quite a lot of cream on the applicator immediately so I recommend scraping off a bit on the edge before applying directly on the eyelid, but it went well anyway. Wait to fade until it has started to dry, which it does quite quickly, then it is easy to get a soft fade. I do this with a separate soft brush.
Feeling - Immediately when I apply it, it feels wet and quite strong on the eyelid, can be good to know for you with more sensitive skin on the eyelids. It sniffed a little towards the eye when you had it on the lower lash line as well, but not very much.
Color - I have the shade Night Glow which looks a little darker in the sleeve than it gets on the skin, but it is a really nice mink brown color that becomes metallic / shimmery on the eyelid. It becomes most metallic where applied without fading, but in fading it becomes duller. In my close-ups, the fading even looks darker, but it is not in reality it is only the light that is reflected so in the picture :)
Sustainability - I tested without eye shadow primer in this make-up to test the durability, some cream eye shadows sit so well that it becomes like eye shadow and primer in the same. At the end of the day, however, it had slipped away in the globe line so I recommend eye shadow primer below (have not tested with it yet).
The cheapest are both at Kicks where the lipsticks cost SEK 89 and the eye shadows SEK 79.
The eyes were incredibly fast to make! Did not have much time but still had time to do this eye makeup.
- Off-white eyeliner along the waterline and out a little out of the corner of the eye, Benecos Natural White Kajal
- Brown eyeshadow along the lower lash line, same as the contour ring, Pixi Book of Beauty Contour Creator
- The cream eye shadow on the entire eyelid, NYX Member Lingerie Eye Shadow (Night Glow)
- Fade out the shadow with a soft but fairly compact brush
- The cream eye shadow also along the lower lash line
- Black eyeliner along the upper and lower half lash line, Pixi Lash Line Ink
- Black mascara on all lashes, Magnetic Lash Mascara
Summary - Great products and the shades Embellishment and Night Glow together will be a really nice look.
Hugs are! ♥
