NYX Lip Lingerie Letdown 

Yesterday I went for a long overdue catch up with one of my friends in Meadowhall and we decided to do a bit of shopping (of course!). I had a ton of Boots points saved up and I knew exactly what I wanted to buy with it- the NYX Lip Lingerie!

I’d seen so many good things said about this and I already own two of the Liquid Suede ones so I couldn’t wait to try this out. I’ve been wanting a more nude colour for the days when I don’t want a statement lip so I picked up the shade 07 Satin Ribbon as it seemed just what I was looking for. I got home and immediately tried it on, expecting to love it…I didn’t!

The formula is nothing like the Liquid Suede ones, it isn’t anywhere near as pigmented & it dried my lips out sooo badly! It also clumped up, flaked off and wasn’t as long-lasting as the others. Basically it was nothing like I was expecting.

Now originally I though it could just have been because I’d not used a lip scrub in a few days so I pulled out my Lush Lip Scrub and used the Bodyshop Hemp Lip conditioner like I usually do to see if that helped…it didn’t. Even when my lips were smooth and hydrated I still had the same problems I did before.

I’d been so happy to finally get my hands on one of these but I must say I’m really disappointed! I’m hoping that it could be that I just got a dud one but I feel like I’ve wasted my Boots points and it’s really put me off buying another one just in case. I love my Liquid Suede ones (Sandstorm is my go to lip product right now, I’m constantly wearing it!) but I’m really let down by the Lingerie one.

Has anyone else had a similar problem with one of these? I’ve seen nothing but good posts about it so I’m wondering if it’s just this particular item rather than the product as a whole. Also this isn’t my usual kind of post so let me know if you like it or not!

    How disappointing! I really like the liquid suedes and I thought these would be similar.

    So did I, I was really surprised with how bad it is! I’ve been told by some people I can take it back so might see if I can tomorrow, I’d never use it so worth a try 😔

    Been thinking about trying the NYX range but I think after reading this I’m going to go for the liquid suedes instead! Great post, love how honest you are!

    I would definitely recommend the suedes over the lingerie ones! Yes you don’t have as much choice colour wise but they are soooo much better 🙂 and thank you! I’m glad that so many people love my honesty and that I’ve helped you with this post 🙂
