You know the feeling when you see something come across your screen, whether it’s on Pinterest or Tumblr or whatever, and you like it so much that it kind of starts to give you anxiety?
What if I won’t get to have that? What if I can have that but it won’t be until next week?
What if it sells out? What if it’s blindingly (aka preventatively) expensive?
For the record, I don’t condone bypassing important bills or meals to buy things, but the thought definitely crossed my mind when I liked each and every color of NYX’s Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks.
YEAH, SO NOW YOU UNDERSTAND WHY THIS POST IS TITLED “HELP.”
Ok. Sorry for yelling.
There is not a single color in that photo that I do not actively want. These are a very real spectrum of nudes, some of which have some degree of rosy tint, and they dry into a matte, long-lasting, velvety lipstick.
Lingerie for your Lips
NYX Lip Lingerie is part of the 2016 releases, and as far as beauty trends are going, they couldn’t have come at a better time. Liquid lipstick is definitely on the rise because of its precision ability and long-lasting formula. Also, the whole drying on your lips thing makes color transfer and smearing nearly a non-issue.
The twelve shades included in the Lip Lingerie series are named with a classic lingerie motif:
- Corset – Neutral light taupe
- Lace Details – Rosy light taupe
- Push Up – Medium taupe
- Embellishment – Dusty deep lavender
- Baby Doll – Cool taupe
- Beauty Mark – Fudgy cool brown
- Bedtime Flirt – Rosy cinnamon
- Exotic – Faded brick red
- Honeymoon – Cool grey brown
- Ruffle Trim – Dusty peach
- Satin Ribbon – Light grey taupe
- Teddy – It looks like chocolate frosting.
If you thought all of those words sounded the same, you’re right. It was way harder than I thought to describe all of those obviously different colors in ways that didn’t make them sound identical. Thank goodness for Embellishment, Exotic, and Beauty Mark because the rest are all basically taupe or dusty rose.
UPDATE: In 2017, NYX Cosmetics updated this shade range with 12 additional colors – some of which… still look the same. (But different!)
There’s a “Nude” for Almost Everyone
Some reviewers who had darker complexions mentioned that the majority of the Lip Lingerie shades were way too light for their skin tone. Since I’m like translucent white, I don’t usually have this problem, but for people with darker skin tones I’m pretty sure that the lighter shades in this collection would be the equivalent of putting white out on my lips, for them. So yeah, hopefully some more darker shades come out! (See third video below by Youtuber, LetsTalkRenaa.)
A Lipstick That Dries
Liquid lipsticks, as I mentioned, are applied and then dried for a finished look that last for a long time without smudging. The downside of this is that many formulas can dry on your lips, and subsequently really dry out your lips, leaving them looking cracked and flat. This formula actually made some reviewers feel like their lips were moisturized! According to one reviewer, lip balm can even be applied without too much smudging or transfer.

These liquid lipsticks are a little bit more “mousse-like” than your typical liquid lipstick which goes on actually quite thin. The formula is exceptionally smooth and instead of drying to a tacky finish or dry-looking and -feeling matte, it leaves a unanimously velvety finish.
Where to Find & Buy Lip Lingerie
It’s surprising that there isn’t more hullabaloo about this line of liquid lipsticks. Especially considering each lipstick shade is only $7. The hardest part is picking a lipstick color to start with because, unless you stare at them for a good 15 minutes, they all look the fucking same. But they also look awesome.
