Went shopping with Ashley today and we head to Sephora to look around. I ended up buying myself a NYX liquid lipstick :3 I saw this series of liquid lipstick a couple weeks back while I was out with friends. I was tempted to buy them but I have to resist because I had too many lipsticks XD When I saw how pretty the shades are when my friends tried theirs after buying it, it made me wish I had bought them.. So there I was in Sephora just now, just eye candy-ing these lip shades and yes, I gave in eventually. haha Besides, I've been wanting to try a nude shade for the first time :p So why not haha
The colour I got is LSCL07: Sandstorm, the liquid lipstick cost $19. I quite like NYX for its affordability and pretty-good quality.
The wand is similar to the kind like Jeffree Star's, though of a "lower quality". The applicator shape is flat so it was a little awkward when applying. It did not have a curve that conforms to the shape of your lip. I accidentally dipping some product on my chin when applying lols But it is pretty pigmented and product transfer is good.
When I looked at myself with the lip colour, I enjoy how the colour is not obvious. It's like, you can see something is there but not quite, which is rather interesting. The shade looks good on me too, thanks to Ashley's good judgment :D
Before it dries it is quite shiny, and it becomes slightly matte when dried. It has the tacky feeling as Unicorn Blood. The colour does not stay though): The swatch on my hand started to smudge while I was gaming, and it left patches of lipstick on my hand. So I can imagine this is a lipstick that does not last when you eat and you probably will need to touch up after. Doesn't look kiss proof too, so it's definitely gonna stain my drinking cup. But hey, for $19 I think this is pretty good. I can also choose to save up twice the amount to get Androgyny from JS, which is a simialr shade and I really like that shade too :D
Anyway now that I have a nude shade, I'm gonna explore how I can pull of a nude lip look! Am excited for it :D
