My Experience with NYX Exotic Lip Lingerie:
NYX has been coming up with so many awesome products lately! More recently, multiple new lines of lipsticks and some additional shades were added to their most popular liquid lipstick lines. Previously there were 12 colours in this range and now 12 more shades have been added. Hence, now there 24 shades in this range, which are mainly nudes and neutrals. Most of the colors in this line are light, but I chose one of their darker shades, Exotic.
NYX describes this color as a warm mahogany red. This shade, however, is a muted brick red; it is somewhat like a terracotta color with an orange undertone. I love this color! It is unique and will complement all skin tones. When worn, it looks very beautiful and sexy. This is a Kylie Jenner kind of a shade. This is one of the best shades for medium to dusky skinned beauties. It comes packaged like a lip gloss, similar to Kylie lip gloss, with a doe foot applicator. The doe foot applicator is slightly longer and skinnier compared to the applicator in their soft matte lip cream range. The doe foot applicator makes the application easy and precise.
The consistency is mousse-like as it glides on your lips easily. I have noticed that the lipstick takes a few second to turn matte on your lips. It also has a bit of stickiness to it when you press your lips together. But it’s not so incredibly tacky that it’s annoying to wear. It can be slightly drying after some time, but I do not think it dries out my lips a lot. Still, it is better that you applied this on well exfoliated and primed lips; otherwise, it may enhance the flaws of your lips such as dryness and fine lines.
The lipstick can be clumpy and streaky during application, which is very annoying. These factors make the application of the lipstick more uneven and more coats are required. Exotic lasts for around 5 to 6 hours on my lips and can survive a light meal. It transfers very lightly after greasy meals. The removal of the lipstick is a bit difficult. An oil based makeup remover is required for proper removal. It has been claimed that this shade is a dupe for Kat Von D Lolita II but this shade looks more orangey-red on my pigmented lips. Still, I absolutely love this color. It is a very unique shade and has fetched me many compliments.
