When it comes to lip colors, I prefer nude and mauve lipsticks. I rarely go for a bright red or pink shades unless I’m feeling bold and feisty. But I thought this 2017, I’ll try something different.

NYX is my go-to drugstore makeup brand. It’s quite nice to be able to try out their new product, the NYX Full Throttle Lipstick. The lipsticks from this collection claims to be waterproof and extra long wearing with a full coverage, matte finish. 

I picked up the shade Lethal Kiss—a bright pink shade. I think this shade is best suited for someone with a fair skin tone. Morenas can also rock this shade too with the right makeup look.

Packaging: It’s in a slim black tube that makes it very handy. It weights 2.4 gm. It has a color-coded top, while on the body of the lipstick, it has details such as the ingredients and short description. The bullet is not your typical lipstick—it comes with ridges on the sides for a more precise application. Perfect for women with thin lips!

Here’s a swatch of NYX Full Throttle Lipstick in Letal Kiss with the flash (on the left) and natural light (on the right).

The formula is pigmented, goes on thin and glides perfectly. It then dries to a smudge-proof, matte finish. No need for a second layer.

It definitely feels like it is going to last long as the lipstick dries down matte without cracking or patchiness. After a few hours though, it can feel a bit dry, so don’t forget to moisturize those puckers well!

Some matte formulas can transfer a lot, but not the NYX Full Throttle Lipstick. You don’t need to worry about leaving stains on glasses, coffee mugs and spoons.

Little transfer on the back of my hand, almost nothing actually.

Its waterproof claim is true–NYX Full Throttle Lipstick survived lunch and tea. But with water in-between, it faded from the center and the corners. Here’s what it looks like after 6 hours.

Please note that I didn’t attempt to reapply after my 6 hour check-in so here’s what it looks like after 12 hours. Pretty good staying power, I must say!

At the end of the day, I was surprised to see that I have barely anything on my lips anymore. But then again, I didn’t reapply 🙂
