The display was fresh. All the new NYX colors for the Liquid Suedes and the new Velvet Matte formula lipsticks were out. After playing with the Velvet Matte colors that dragged on my skin, I spotted the display for the new NYX Plush Gel Lipsticks. They were all untouched except for one color. They were a welcome change from the dry quality of the former testers and they went on very smoothly on my hand. I tested them all out and decided to just get one to try. Sometimes things that look and feel great on the hand don’t necessarily perform well on the lips.
Trying it on, the color looked less desirable than it did under the Ulta lights and quite dupable. Hey was I duped? It felt very much like gloss with a lot of slip. It’s moisturizing, yes and there’s a faint perfume scent to it which is surprising considering NYX is usually unscented. I also have to contend with a bit of a plasticky after-taste in my mouth from the lipstick. Not too crazy about this. I can get this same effect with my Mac Lustres and have no weird taste in my mouth.
It’s great to see NYX come out with affordable lipsticks in trending colors and alternative lip textures to the matte lip trend, however this is something I probably will be skipping next time.
Yay or Nay?
More of a Meh for me.
Stay Sweet Lovelies!
