Well hello there beauty lovers! My kids are finally back to school and we made it through a full week last week. My youngest one just started kindergarten and I’m relieved that she loves it because it could have gone in a whole other direction! Also, my oldest is now in 2nd grade and she’s having a great time like always. It’s an adjustment for me too, because for the 3 hours my youngest is at kindergarten the house is SO quiet and I don’t quite know what to do with my life. I’ve been home with kids for 7 years, so it’s still a bit strange. I’m sure I’ll adjust though! 😉 Anyway, I know you’re really here to see what these new lippies are all about so I’ll just get right to the good stuff.
Today, I’m talking all about the new NYX Luv Out Loud Liquid Lipsticks! With sassy feel-good names, these limited edition lipsticks capture the attributes NYX Professional Makeup finds truly beautiful. Yes, some of the colors are pretty bold, but I actually really loved this formula! One reviewer on the Ulta site gave them a 2 star review and I feel like I just have to clarify some things. So, the “swatches” online don’t really match the actual color of the product which can be frustrating for consumers. However, the formula, colors, and longevity are just superb!
The formula is thin and silky feeling while applying it to the lips. (I do have to dip the wand in twice, once for each lip.) The wand is an elongated doe foot applicator, which I think works well with the consistency. I found all of the colors to be very opaque and not streaky at all. They dried down to a velvet-matte finish fairly quickly (about 5 minutes) and lasted comfortably for about 6 hours. Actually, I think these are one of the more comfortable “matte” lipsticks that I’ve worn. The only thing I didn’t care for was the scent which was slightly chemical, but faded once they were set.
NYX Luv Out Loud Liquid Lipsticks
- Confident is a pale nude/pink. This is probably my least favorite color of the bunch. I think it just looks too much like concealer on me.
- Brilliant is a deep, warm toffee/rose.
- Fearless is a vibrant, yet pale lavender. This is another hard color to pull off but for some reason I kind of like it.
- Extraordinary is a vibrant fuchsia. This is probably my favorite shade of the bunch!
- Passionate is a dark plum.
- Brave is a deep blackberry/blue.
All in all, I really love these lipsticks. Some aren’t for everyday wear, but if you like to live your life fearlessly or passionately, then these are the lipsticks for you! To be honest, I probably won’t be rocking Confident or Fearless very often, but I’ll be wearing Extraordinary, Brilliant, and Passionate like they’re going out of style!
