NYX Professional Makeup Lip Lingerie Shimmer

Nyx is a fairly new brand in Australia and I remember being a bit excited when it became available , as I was already aware of it online from US, and especially from a discount website I used. As the name implies, it is very affordable and this lip gloss only set me back $15. Nyx has a few of these lip glosses in different finishes. I was never completely on board the "matte or nothing" trend that has been so popular and I'm glad that lip-glosses are once again having a moment. I chose this Lip Lingerie in the shade Honeymoon; this is one of my favourite colours, a soft dusty pink which is often hard to find. It applies really easily with a slightly angled doe-foot applicator and has a strong, almost caramel smell and a slightly tingly feel at first. The colour is just gorgeous and my lips are defined by a subtle shimmer which is really pretty. Above all it is very comfortable to wear. My lips feel glossy but not not sticky and the formula is not drying like a matte, although it is not particularly hydrating either.
My only real criticism is its longevity - it wears off quite easily, even for a gloss, and I need to re-apply a few times. Perhaps as a lip "lingerie" it is meant to be barely there? In any case the colour is so pretty, I don't really mind!
