I got this because of the massive hype around this range of NYX lingerie lipsticks and this shade, Ruffle Trim, looked absolutely stunning.
I really liked the sleek packaging, you get quite a lot of product so it should last you a while. The applicator was nice as well, it’s thin and long, making it easier for me to use as I don’t have very big lips. Though I think some people might not like how long the applicator is.
The shade itself is a beautiful dusty, peach pink which complements my skin tone well. It went on very evenly and dried matte. One swipe was enough for me to get full pigmentation out, without needing a liner or anything else
It has fantastic lasting power. If you want something that will last through a meal and drinks, definitely check this out.
The main negative of this lipstick however, was how incredibly drying it was. I’ll admit, I have dry skin and dry lips to begin with, however I think regardless of what you have, this is extremely drying and most people would feel that. The first time I wore it, on it’s own, my lips looked so cracked and rough, it wasn’t an attractive look, It sunk into my lines as well which didn’t help.
However, the next time I decided to try it again, I applied some lip balm underneath. My biggest concern was that the lipstick would separate and patch, or not last long if I used the lip balm with it. However, I was pleasantly surprised. It didn’t last as well as the first time, however it still lasted through some food and drinks. It didn’t sink into my lines and didn’t dry out my lips once the lip balm was under it.
Overall, I do like it a lot more now that I put a lip balm under it. I’ve actually bought another shade as I am very impressed with how pigmented they are and how well these last.
