Beauty | Review: Nyx Lip Lingerie in Bedtime Flirt

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a good Wednesday so far! Today I'm back with another NYX review for you all. I've been really enjoying NYX and their products lately and their Lip Lingerie lipsticks are what I'll be reviewing for you in this post - specifically the lipstick shade "Bedtime Flirt". 

So first as always before I get into my review, let's see what NYX says about this product:

"Slip into something seductive with Lip Lingerie, our new weightless liquid lipstick with a plush matte finish.

Available in a range of colour-kissed nudes—from cinnamon pink and chocolate brown, to warm mahogany red and classic nude beige—each sultry shade will coat the curves of your lips with irresistibly creamy colour."

Colour & Pigmentation:



The colour "Bedtime Flirt" is described on the NYX website as a red toned pink - a description I would describe as fairly accurate. The colour itself has definite undertones of red as well as orange and brown in my opinion and is somewhat similar to Kat Von D's "Lolita" (though certainly lighter in shade). It's a perfect autumnal shade for me and one i've been wearing often these past few months. In terms of pigmentation, this shade is nicely pigmented though a little patchy in places - nonetheless, the colour is rich and true to the tone in the packaging when swatched on the skin. 

Application, Formula & Wear Time:


This lipstick applies nicely to the lips though as mentioned above, it can be patchy in some places. This is easily fixed with a little more layering and it isn't difficult at all to get an even, opaque coverage. The lipstick dries matte in around 30-45 seconds and doesn't transfer to the touch once it has done so. 

The lipsticks are lightweight and feel velvety on the lips. Despite drying matte, they can sometimes transfer and feel almost "sticky" when you press your lips together. This isn't a massive deal however and always, it's best not to rub your lips together too much anyway when wearing a liquid lipstick.
The wear time of these lipsticks are very good - I have worn them for full days at work with only 1 need for a touch up. When drinking, there's little to no transfer or wearing and they react well to contact with food. 

Final Thoughts:

 Overall, I'm a big fan of these liquid lipsticks and I have to say, I definitely prefer them over the formula of the much loved Soft Matte Lip Creams! Definitely give these a go if you're a liquid lipstick fan.

Have you tried the NYX Lip Lingerie range yet? What are your personal thoughts and what are your favourite liquid lippies?
