I love this product! I purchased this product online from the NYX website in the shade, "Embellishment." It is a dusty grey-purple. I have extremely fair, cool-toned skin (NW10) and this lipstick is somewhat dark on me, but I imagine it would not be dark on deeper skin tones. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this liquid lipstick, especially since I purchased it for only $7. It glides on smoothly, almost like a gel/mousse hybrid. It is the perfect consistency for easy application. It doesn't go on entirely opaque at first swipe: I did need to build it up is certain areas of my lips because it was slightly patchy, but it wasn't difficult to fix. The slight patchiness is the ONLY reason this product lost one star. The applicator makes it very easy to get a precise line. I originally used a lip liner, but then determined that it was not necessary with this product. What really impresses me about the NYX Lip Lingerie is its longevity. I put this on an hour before eating dinner. I drank lots of water, then ate a greasy, messy meal. The only effect after dinner was slight fading on the inside of the lips, but honestly, it looked almost exactly like I'd first applied it. The only thing that really effected it was when I ate dessert - pudding. When I was eating pudding, I noticed it was coming off a bit on the plastic spoon. I had used a metal spoon at dinner without a similar effect, and so I believe it was either the plastic or the shape of the plastic spoon that started taking it off. It lasted a good six hours with dinner, lots of water, and was gone after dessert, but I think that is really amazing, especially for a drugstore formula. I will purchase other colors in the line, I just have to figure out which ones will look good with my pale, cool-toned complexion. ...read more

I bought the vigorous violet shade and I am absolutely in love! It says food-proof, but really it's life proof! I apply it in the morning (multiple coats depending on how dark I want the colour that day) and off I go. Yesterday it went for 10 hours! Yes, it's not quite as virbrant as the day goes on, but the fact that I can still see the purple colour on my lips when I get home from work is good enough for me!! 13$ at Walmart and well worth it! Yes it's sticky at first, but once it's dried it's fine and there really isn't any transference at all, so my cups aren't all stained. Your lips may feel dry as the day goes on, but I simply apply my EOS balm over top and off I go again. I've tried a lot of liquid lipsticks that claim to stain, but so far this is the only one that seriously lives up to it's name. ...read more

I was absolutely shocked with this product! The color is in Beauty Secret #2. The pigmentation was out of this world! One thing I love about this is that being a liquid lipstick it combines both the coverage of a lipstick, and the shine of a lip gloss! It lasted ALL DAY, and I love it's very compact you can throw in your purse! It's definitely a go to color I will definitely be wearing a lot I already know, especially with fall approaching soon! I think I even may love it as much as I do my NYX Butter Gloss if not more, and this is way cheaper! ...read more

These lipsticks are an incredible bargain.

I don't know if they stay on the full 16 hours they claim to, but they've lasted for as long as I've ever needed them to. I usually get antsy and rub the lipstick half off around 6 hours, then reapply it (there's really no need to, though).

You'll want makeup remover to take off all the pigment. If I'm too lazy to take off my lipstick before bed, it won't come off on my sheets, and it'll be there (almost all there) in the morning.

These lipsticks will leave your lips colored and soft throughout the day. Let the color sit for a minute to set, and then apply the lip conditioner. You can reapply if you need to, but I've never felt the need to--and I'm someone who is obsessed with applying and reapplying chapstick. I just apply a thick coat of the conditioner and it keeps me going for a long time.

One warning: I have two colors of this lipstick, and they're both a little darker when they dry. They're still nice colors, just not what I expected. If you know that going in, you'll be fine. ALSO: if you have chapstick on prior to applying the color, the pigmentation won't last as long. Apply a tiny bit of chapstick prior to application, or apply it hours beforehand. Don't apply lots of chapstick under the color. It's not necessary and it will ruin the staying power of the lipstick and dilute the formula. ...read more

The ColourPop Ultra Satin Lips are one of my favorite liquid lipsticks. I love them so much that I have almost all the colors in the Ultra Satin Lip line. The price and quality of the lipstick is hard to beat! While I do like the staying power of a matte liquid lipstick, they tend to dry out my lips at some point, so for that reason alone, I don't usually wear them on a daily basis. What I love about the Ultra Satin Lips is that the creamy formula makes it extremely comfortable to wear. They aren't as drying as a matte formula, so I can wear these daily. The Ultra Satin Lips also offer the same color intensity and opacity as a matte liquid lipstick, while also being easy to apply. With these lipsticks I don't usually have to worry about patchiness, and reapplying is a breeze.

Because these are not matte, they aren't kiss proof, but regardless they still have amazing staying power. I've worn one of these from 5am until 11pm, and the color still looked pretty good at the end of the day. If they do fade, they fade evenly and gracefully. The darker colors, however, can get a little bit messy if you wear them and eat a greasy meal, but with all the other colors that wasn't too much of an issue.

TL;DR, if you're looking for a nondrying, comfortable, long lasting (not necessarily kiss proof) liquid lipstick with great color payoff (and a great price), you should definitely give the ColourPop Ultra Satin Lips a try! ...read more

If you haven't got your hands on this you are missing out on one of thee best liquid lipsticks out. Wet n' Wild DID IT with this one. Let me start off by saying I have several liquid lipsticks from drug store brands to high end brands. As far as 1) formula 2) packaging 3) cured doe foot applicator this liquid lipstick is VERRRRY similar (if not just about the same) to Jefferey Stars liquid lipstick. The formula is light weight and the colors are super pigmented, all you need is 1 application and drying time is a breeze about 20-30 seconds. Once it has set its a beautiful matte finish that is sure to last you all day. Upon removal it is not drying and taking it off is easy, as long as you use an oil base remover, I use vaseline and it's off immediately. At the moment I have four colors of the cat suit collection and I plan on purchasing more because for the price and quality I refuse to spend $20-$30. At the moment Rebel Rose has been my daily go-to. Thank you Wet n' Wild for providing your customers with good quality, affordable makeup! ...read more

These are one of the best drugstore liquid to matte lipsticks out there! The 8.99 price tag is great for the amount of product you get and the quality of the actual product. I would compare these to the Anastasia liquid lipsticks, only the Milani ones feel thinner and not so heavy. The formula is very pigmented and dries quickly with minimum patchiness, if there is any at all I just fix that with a second coat. Adding another coat doesn't change the formula at all, it doesn't cake up or crack or anything. I typically put on some chapstick before applying any liquid lipstick just so that there's at least a little bit of moisture, and I believe that helps as well. These smell kindof like the Kylie lipkits, with a vanilla cake batter type of scent, but it's not overwhelming and it pretty much goes away once it dries down. The shades pictured are "making me matte" (#11), a more browny copper and "the ultimatte" (#15), a warm-toned deep purple. I would totally recommend, these are great! ...read more

I received this as a present and have fallen in love ever since! The glides on smoothly and the colour exotic is absolutely stunning. I'm able to wear it both casually and when I want to get dolled up. The person who gave it to me ended up buying one for herself after seeing it on me and I have received countless compliments on it and still do. My favourite from nyx's liquid lipsticks is lip lingerie as the texture, colours and overall quality is so nice. Yes, it does dry up my lips but I apply some eos lip balm before application which helps, but then again drying is expected from matte lipsticks. I have a darker skin tone so it's quite hard to find a subtle shade that works with me but the shade exotic is absolute heaven. It is very light and subtle while still having a pop of colour. This is my absolute favourite and always, always, always my go to. I can never have enough! ...read more
