Yup. Here I am again. Standing in the CVS Pharmacy makeup aisle checking out what’s new. I scoot over to the NYX display and am happy to see the NYX Lip Lingerie products included. There aren’t many to pick through, but I settle on what I believe to be my nude color, LIPLI11 “Baby Doll” which is a soft, pale nude color.
I like the packaging, and I know that NYX is known to have some of the best lip products, so I’m excited to try it on.
It does glide on very smoothly, very similar to its liquid soft matte lip products, which I (and pretty much everyone else) just adore. It feels creamy on the lips. I DO have to smile a bit to fill in gaps with pigment, which I find odd, but it seems to work and the finished product looks clean.
However, either I chose the wrong color for myself or what, but I really don’t like the color. I don’t know if it’s because I just have pale skin to begin with, but I am starting to really not like nude colors on myself. Maybe I just haven’t found the right nude, but I haven’t had success with it at all.
I tried to wear it. I really did. But I ended up wiping it off about 10 minutes later. Couldn’t stand the way it looked on my lips. I was washed out.
Perhaps in the future I’ll try a more reddish/pinkish color, but it just looked really weird on me. Do not recommend! (at least not that color)
