Review: NYX liquid lip cream

Okay, so I’ve got a confession to make. I think I’m a lipstick addict. I swear I didn’t mean to but somehow I ended up buying two new liquid lipsticks even tho I really don’t need them. In my defence, I don’t have anything like them. I’ll be reviewing one of them for you today and the other will be ready for you to read next week!NYX lip cream in the colour moscow review

The lipstick I bought was NYX liquid lip cream in the colour Moscow. I had been playing with the idea of getting a different colour than normal, and since I love blue so much I decided to just go for it. So I bought a dark blue lipstick.NYX lip cream in the colour moscow review

It comes in quite a small package, compared to some of the other liquid lipsticks NYX has in their collection. It looks really dark, but when you apply the colour is slightly different. On the swatch you can see that it has a little of a green tone to it.NYX lip cream in the colour moscow review swatch

The texture is smooth and creamy and the smell somehow reminds me of butter? Popcorn? I can’t really put my finger on it. It applies smoothly but you need to make sure you don’t get any stripes on your lips, aka, you have to make sure you apply it evenly cos otherwise you might see the brushstrokes.

When I applied it in one layer the effect is a little more subtle, if you can even call a dark blue lipstick that, haha. NYX lip cream in the colour moscow review

When a second layer is applied the effect is much darker.

I was actually surprised by how much I like this lipstick. I thought I would just have it and that would be cool, but I’d probably be scared to wear it out (which would lead to the lipstick just lying in my room, looking pretty but never be worn outside), but I think I might actually be able to pull this off for other people to see. Who knows, maybe I’ll pretend to be confident enough and give it a go.

In summary, I really like the texture of this lipstick, although a first applied layer doesn’t give an extremely pigmented effect. This lipstick is not long lasting, but has a gorgeous creamy texture that doesn’t make your lips feel dry. I might try some more of this line of NYX liquid lipsticks!NYX lip cream in the colour moscow review
