Hot Product of the Week: NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick (Cashmere Silk) 

I know I haven’t posted in a while, but I’m back with my latest hot product of the week!

I have heard nothing but great things about the NYX Lip Lingerie liquid lipstick line and I decided to try out a shade for myself!


I have been wearing the shade Cashmere Silk non-stop since I bought it at Ulta. It is the perfect pinky Nude shade for my skin tone and goes with every makeup look!

The formula is very thin, yet opaque and is not too drying on the lips. I do like to apply a lip balm before using this liquid lipstick, but I think it is pretty comfortable without one as well. This product lasts ALL DAY and is almost completely transfer proof.

The Lip Lingerie line consists of all neutral shades, but those are the shades I am drawn to most of the time anyway. I am so in love with the shade I own and am definitely going to pick up some more!

Hot Product of the Week: Palladio Velvet Matte Liquid Lipsticks 

Welcome back to another Hot Product of the Week! This week, I have been loving the Palladio Velvet Matte Liquid Lipsticks in the shades Tapestry (left- deep purple) and Boucle (right-dark brown toned nude). I got these at Ulta and they were around $5 each. 

Keep reading to see a full review! ​

I have never bought anything from this brand before, but when I saw that these were a velvet matte finish rather than a full matte finish, I wanted to give them a try to see if they would be less drying. 

Overall, I am LOVING the formula and color of lipsticks and really want to go back to get more shades! The darker shade was a little streaky, but not hard to work with at all and can be corrected really easily with another layer. I find that these did not dry out my lips at all since they are not meant to be a flat matte finish, but they dry down really well and did not transfer. 

The only thing I do not like about this product is the fact that the color you see on the outside is kind of deceiving as to what the actual color is. Just looking at outside of the packaging, Tapestry (the dark purple shade) looked like a rich chocolate brown and when I got home and opened it, I was really surprised to see that it was not brown at all! Same thing with the shade Boucle. It looked like it was going to be a pretty pinky Nude color and actually turned out to be a dark brown nude. Even though the colors fonnot really match what they look on the outside, I still am obsessed with the shades and would have still bought them anyway. 

Overall, I think these liquid lippies are amazing and for such an inexpensive price, you can’t beat it! 

Hot or Not!? L.A. Girl Matte Liquid Lipsticks

I have been using these L.A. Girl matte liquid lipsticks for a while now and thought I would go ahead and post a product review all about them! I am not a huge liquid lipstick fanatic (I prefer regular lipstick), but these are so inexpensive and the colors are so pretty!

I have three shades (bottom to top): Dreamy (pink toned nude), Backstage (deep berry), and Fleur (terracotta toned).

General info about the product:

  • They retail for $4 each (can be found for cheaper depending on what store you purchase them at).
  • Each tube has .17 oz. of product.
  • They have a standard doe-foot applicator.
  • They dry down to a completely matte finish
  • Comes in 16 shades

I will start off by saying that for the $4 price tag, these liquid lipsticks are pretty awesome and worth it (in my opinion), but I would not spend $20 on them.

They are very pigmented and I did not have any issues with streakiness with the two lighter shades (Dreamy and Fleur). Darkside on the other hand, applies very streaky and I definitely have to wear a lipliner underneath because it is nearly impossible to get it to look right (the color is beautiful though so I work with it, but it is kind of annoying).

The applicator is a flat doe-foot applicator, which is typical with liquid lipsticks. The applicator makes it really easy to apply the product and is pretty much fool-proof. So far, this product hits all the checks for me- pigmented and easy to apply, but the main reason why I typically do not go for liquid lipsticks is because they make my lips feel really dry. I was afraid that with these being so inexpensive, the formula would be really drying and chalky, but that was not the case. It is not the most moisturizing formula (this is hard for matte lipsticks in general), but it is comfortable and does not accentuate the lines in my lips too badly.

Something else about this product that I like is the wear time. Let me tell you, THESE WILL STAY PUT FOR DAYS. Once they dry, they dry completely and will not transfer. I have worn these for 8 hours straight during work and they look exactly the same as when I first apply them. I like this, because I do not have to reapply throughout the day, but you will need some kind of oil or heavy duty makeup remover to get them off. Once you get them off though, they won’t stain your lips (at least they don’t for me).

So again, would I spend $20 a piece on these- no. But for $4 each, I would definitely go back and purchase more shades because the wear time amazing and overall, it is a really great product!
