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!
