NYX Cosmetics Luv Out Loud Limited Edition Liquid Lipsticks

NYX Cosmetics asked me if I would give my honest opinion on their newest liquid lipsticks: Luv Out Loud Collection. Being an avid lover of all things by NYX Cosmetics, I naturally said yes.

The Luv Out Loud Matte Liquid Lip Collection is a limited edition so I wanted to share these with you as soon as possible. Plus, Fall will be here as soon as possible. Don’t you agree?! My lips will be ready to showcase any Fall outfit with the Luv Out Loud liquid lippies.

The NYX Professional Makeup PR info asks: Are Passionate, Brave, Fearless, Confident, Extraordinary or Brilliant? …celebrating individuality, beauty and artistry for all! What do these words mean to you? Swipe on your favorite shade and take to social to tell us how you #luvoutloud.

 

From top to bottom:Brilliant, Confident, Fearless, Extraordinary, Passionate

I’m all those characteristics and then some! I just know you are too! I received 5 of the 6 limited edition NYX Cosmetics lippies. So, it’s a GO for all 5 of them. Look out Fall! Here come Matte Lips!

I have many matte liquid lipsticks and a bunch of them are by NYX Cosmetics. Without a doubt, the NYX Cosmetics liquid lipsticks are my favorite. I was pretty sure these limited edition matte ones were not going to be any different. I was SO right!

If you have sampled any matte liquid lipsticks, you know that they can be drying, sticky, crumbly and/or tacky. Brush all those concerns out of your mind because none of the Luv Out Loud liquid lippies are like this. Can you say: Velvety, smooth, moisturized! I tried the lippies out on well-scrubbed lips for a test run. I put on a silky soft lip balm after that. Then, the pressure was on for these NYX Cosmetic’s new-comers.

What transpired was nothing short of glam. You’ll want to head over to NYX Cosmetics¬†and order these limited edition matte liquid lipsticks pronto. Here are the shades I tried out:

There was only one thing I wished these lippies did and that was no transfer. While the liquid lipstick stayed on my lips for a good 5 hours, there was transfer to my tea cup. I did find one thing interesting, though. After about 5 hours, even though the lipstick seemed to have faded, the color had stained my lips. And, that stayed on until I washed my face right before bedtime.

Heck, why wait til Fall? I’m wearing these beauts NOW!

When you get your NYX Cosmetics Luv Out Loud matte liquid lipsticks, take a selfie and post it across the Internet using #luvoutloud. Let the word know you are AWESOME!

Ofra Cosmetics: Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick

Last month, at The Makeup Show Orlando, I discovered Ofra Cosmetics. This line was one that I just seemed to be drawn to but, I didn’t know why. I didn’t stay too long looking things over at the booth before moving on. But, later that day, I found myself back there wanting to learn more. When all was said and done, I purchased several products to try out and the lovely staff of Ofra Cosmetics gave me this item to review…

Since I was going to give a new-to-me cosmetic line a try, I picked a shade that I would not normally wear. It was an opportunity to step outside the vanity box and try something new. And boy, am I happy I did! Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick is awesome!!! I can’t wait to get other shades. In the meantime, I’m wearing ‘Sunset Beach’. This a lot more coral than I would ever wear on my lips.

The shade isn’t the only thing that is new to me. Check out this applicator…

That end is hard; it’s not a brush and it’s not flexible. I discovered that many makeup artists use a stick to apply lipstick rather than a brush. OK. So, I’m trying it. It’s different and, I would rather have a brush, personally. But, what I do is use the stick to smear some of the product onto my lips. Then, I use my finger to smooth it out. I’ll show you the end results in a bit. But, here is a swatch of ‘Sunset Beach’…

You can see that the lipstick dries to a matte finish. And, this liquid lipstick is aptly named; it is long-lasting. I found that it stayed on my lips for 5 hours with a gloss over it, touching up with the gloss at least 3 times. And by itself, it lasted close to an extra hour. All of that was with drinking water and chai tea throughout the day. That’s wonderful staying power.

See what it looks like on my kisser…

I have thin lips. I can’t change that. So, I think it is easier for me to wear bolder lip colors because it isn’t too over-powering for my face.

My eye look…

This is a very simple look. I have on just a touch of NYC’s Blushable Creme Stick in Plaza Pink. It’s still a coral pink and I wanted to tie it in with the coral shade of my new Ofra Liquid Lipstick. On my eyelids is Ofra’s Eye Gel Primer (which will get its own review because I am in love with it too!). Then I followed with MAC’s Paint Pot in ‘Soft Ochre’. Next, I lined my lids with Physician’s Formula’s Custom Eye Enhancing Gel CreamLiner in ‘Black’. I used Lash ‘Em’s Double Trouble Mascara. The brows are done up with Senna Brow Powder and Wax. I finished off the entire look with a dusting of NYX’s HD Studio Photogenic Finishing Powder.

That’s it. I made it very simple but with some impact…

Again, since I am thoroughly enjoying the products I did purchase, as well as the Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick, I do wish I would have purchased more. Fortunately, we can order from Ofra’s website. And, it should take too long for me to get my order since Ofra Cosmetics is based right here in Florida.
