NYX Cosmetics recently released a new collection of their liquid cream lipsticks as their Luv Out Loud Campaign where they partnered with makeup artist Angel Merino. According to an article I found on Byrdie, NYX Cosmetics already donated $6,000 to charity and will be donating another $10,000 another charity chosen by the winner of a sweepstake they held.
These velvet matte lip creams are exclusive to Ulta and are $6.99 a piece. HOWEVER, all NYX Cosmetics is marked down 30% until 9/30/2017 making these $4.89 a piece! Plus shipping is free for orders $35+ for a limited time! If you haven’t grabbed these yet, now is a great time to check them out!
These collection features 6 new shades that capture the attributes NYX Professional Makeup finds beautiful – Extraordinary, Confidence, Fearless, Passionate, Brave, and Brilliant.
Since these are a velvet matte formula, they’re creamy and comfortable on the lips. They do dry down to a matte finish and are slightly transfer proof on my lips. They are not the most long lasting formula – they last 3-4 hours tops on my lips before I need to touch up. I don’t find that bothersome since they are so affordable and there are only a handful number of liquid lipsticks I find truly long lasting – so 3-4 hours of wear is normal for me.
The shade range is really fun and I think there’s one for every skin tone out there!
My personal favorite is Brilliant – it’s the shade that’s in my comfort zone but I can definitely see myself reaching for the other shades (besides Confident) on days I want to be a bit more adventurous. Like I mentioned above, these are comfortable but they do sink into your lines so if that bothers you, I recommend trying one before purchasing multiples or the entire collection.
If you’re interested in purchasing these, you can do so at your local Ulta or online here! If you’re truly interested in trying these out, grab them before 9/30 to get the 30% discount on all NYX Cosmetics purchases and if you’re shopping online, you can use Ebates to get 3% cash back!
