I feel like Autumn has finally arrived and with it I bring you this beautiful colour from the NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipstick named Beauty Mark! 🍁🍂
History tends to repeat itself as they say. Brown lip colour is back and bolder than before. Style from the 90’s era is back in fashion, while brown lips were the ‘beauty staple statement’ in the 90’s, it can also be spotted all over the fashion and beauty circuit even today. The chokers have also made a huge comeback and boy am I excited about this one, do you also remember the jelly sandals? I’m pretty sure they were from the 90’s too. 🤔 Gosh, it brings back so many memories!
Eeeks I’m getting carried away, moving on swiftly..
Autumn palette is all about the earthy natural tones with an injection of colour. Therefore, a brown lip is necessary for any woman especially during this season. This colour especially will complement any outfit and will be perfect to take you from day to night. It will glam you up instantly!
I had done a review on the NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks a while ago, which you can read here.
Here’s a little excerpt from the NYX website below;
NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks..
“Slip into something seductive with Lip Lingerie, our new weightless liquid lipstick with a plush matte finish.
Available in a range of colour-kissed nudes—from cinnamon pink and chocolate brown, to warm mahogany red and classic nude beige—each sultry shade will coat the curves of your lips with irresistibly creamy colour”.
Formula: it goes on moussey- liquidy and finally settles down as a matte finish. Even though a matte formula can be very drying, you will experience none of this with this product. It can be a tad tricky, as the very light colours can come off as quite streaky but you can correct this during the application stage. I absolutely love this formula as it gives off a velvety finish without looking cakey or drying!
P.s you can add Vaseline or a lip balm before application if you have dry lips or fear it may look cakey.
Staying power: I have to add, it is extremely long wearing and completely smudge and kiss proof. After I swatched the pic below, it didn’t come off easily at all. No amount of soap or hand-wash proved a success. I had to really scrub my arms hard, it just wouldn’t budge. It slightly faded away on the second day! (Talk about being stubborn!) 😏
Packaging: it comes in a simple glass tube packaging which is very similar to the Kylie Jenner ones. It looks really chic and effortless. I’ve read that many people don’t notice the difference when both the brands (NYX and Kylie Jenner) are kept together.
Applicator: the applicator is a little different to the ones I’ve seen before, it’s a doe-foot applicator which is slightly longer than the usual ones. But it does the job well.
Price: it’s pretty reasonable at £6.50. Great value for money!
I wasn’t quite sure whether the colour would suit me, but I’m very happy with this one. It’s a tad darker than what I wear normally but I could see myself wearing this colour quite a bit for this autumnal season. What are your thoughts? 🍂🍂
Until next time,
