NYX Lip Lingerie – Ruffle Trim

NYX Lip Lingerie Review- Ruffle Trim

liplingerie12new

Hey ladies! I think you all have figured it out by now, that lipstick is my favorite makeup item. It’s amazing how one small tube can morph your whole look. It’s wild how a daytime outfit can become a nighttime outfit with just the swap of a lipstick and nothing else. You may have noticed in my previous blogs that 2016 was the year of the nude lip, and 2017 is no different, as the trend continues to reign.

My choice of the best nude lip colors goes to NYX Lip Lingerie line. The Lingerie’s are more pigmented creating fuller, 3-D look, unlike their Soft-Matte Lip Cream line, which leaves more of a stain.

I love a daytime matte nude, especially NYX Ruffle Trim (cinnamon pinkish color); it looks easy and effortless, and ruffletrimcompliments most of my wardrobe without washing me out. Sometimes if am feeling sassy and need a quick nighttime look I throw on NYX After Hours a cool, deep brownish hue that make my lips pop – all the drama without the hassle. The best part of the Lip Lingerie line is that the formula they use to create it is extremely silky, and contains vitamin E; so when the liquid dries your lips don’t! There are 24 shades of Lip Lingerie available from pastel peach (Cheekies) to a cool grey/brown (Scandalous). So no matter your skin tone or mood there is a right nude for you.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in “BERLIN” – Review | Just4Girls.pk

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in “BERLIN” – Review

Matte lipstick has made a huge comeback this past year, and is going to continue to reign in 2017. Every makeup brand from Wet n’ Wild to Dior has jumped on the opportunity to create the perfect matte lip. Even though I love the above mentioned makeup brands there has been one clear standout matte lipstick for me – NYX. Not only did they crush the competition with the formula of their matte lipstick but also created the most diverse range of colors.

With the winter months still brewing around for a while, I am continuously inspired by the dark rich colors that are associated with it. All I have been wearing for the holiday season are shades like: deep burgundies, burnt oranges, and rich umbers.

In particular a shade of umber that is my absolute favorite is Berlin, a soft matte cream by NYX. This deep warm hue accents not only my eyes but also the sun kissed parts of my hair. The best part of this matte lipstick is that it transitions perfectly from day to night. The lightweight formula does not smudge and stays on for hours! I really have to commend NYX for enabling me to create the flawless matte lips.

Editor’s Favs: Best Lipsticks for Desi Skintones (I)

Best Lipsticks for Desi Skintones

Universal Matte Shades Edition 

These shades flatter all skintones, no matter how dark or light. In the first part of this series (Best Lipsticks for Desi Skintones), we are focusing on natural, matte shades.
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in “Walkyrie”The NARS Velvet Matte formula is unique. It feels utterly weightless, silky and hugs your lips like second skin 😍

The shade performs as a warm spice shade on fair and medium skin tones, and a tangy warm nude on darker skin tones.

NARS Walkyrie

Maybelline Super Stay 14 Hr Lipstick in “Lasting Chestnut”One of my favorites! Lasting chestnut is a taupe nude shade with pink undertones (similar to MAC WHIRL). It is yet another shade that everyone can comfortably wear. For fair to medium skin tones will give a cool brown shade, whereas for darker skintones results in a stunning nude shade.

NYX Velvet Matte Lipstick in “Charmed”Recent addition to my favorites category, Charmed is described by NYX as a “brick red with purple undertones”. On fair skintones it definitely gives that exact shade – whereas on medium skin tones it is a cross between rose and brick red. On darker skintones it performs more as a flesh nude shade.

5 STEPS TO TRANSITION FROM DAY TO NIGHT MAKEUP FAST

5 STEPS TO TRANSITION FROM DAY TO NIGHT MAKEUP FAST

When haziness falls faster toward the end of Daylight Savings, usually evening plans get knock up, as well.

In case you’re heading straight from work to party time or night out on the town, here’s the way to get a more sultry, dramatic look rapidly — right in your office washroom.

Firstly: Around this season of the year, the regular drop in temperature can dry skin, which prompts to dullness, as well as increase oiliness as the skin overcompensates to stay saturated. Not a decent look come 5 o’clock! You’ll require an extra layer of lotion every morning to keep skin ideally hydrated and brilliant throughout the day.

Stock these essentials in your bags or office desk drawer to make your day-night makeup transition quick:

  • Oil blotting sheets
  • Balm
  • Dark eyeliner and Mascara
  • Matte bronzer
  • A contour brush
  • Coconut oil
  • And Dark lipstick

Quittin’ time? You’re only five steps far from a beautiful nighttime look.

1. Sparkle control

As far as the complexion goes, oil blotting sheets are everything! Truly, they freshen up your face that way.

Luckily, oil blotting sheets nowadays don’t likewise lift away your makeup. If you think that you have some redness that was revealed by the day’s oils, delicately (keyword: delicately) reapply concealer or foundation just on areas that need a touch of disguising.

2. Light up with balm

Get shining by gently patting on some balm. Warm the balm in the middle of the palms of your hands. Press, and don’t rub the product onto your forehead, cheeks or wherever your skin needs rejuvenating. Furthermore, yes, you can use it over foundation.

3. Touch up your eyes

Add up on your daytime eyeliner just by thickening the line on the top lash line. Just concentrate on the outer parts of your eyelids by expanding your liner past the outer corner of your eye and guiding it to your eyebrow tips to give your peepers some instant lift. Add a fresh layer of mascara to your top lashes, gently apply mascara to your lower lashes using the tip of the wand.

4. Quick contour

A little definition is best for the night since it can make you look more polished. By using a contour brush, apply bronzer diagonally under your cheekbones, at the sides of the bridge of the nose and under the chin and the jawline.

5. Go for Bold (lips)

Going maybe a couple shades darker for the lips during the night can include significant drama. In case you’re already wearing lipstick, smooth a touch of coconut oil onto your kisser and wipe the shading with a tissue.
