NYX Full Throttle Lipstick Firestorm Ingredients

My Experience with NYX Full Throttle Lipstick Firestorm:

Let’s begin with the packaging of this baby. The lipstick comes in a sleek glossy black plastic tube with a color-coded cap from the top that helps to easily spot the shade. The cap of the lipstick tube shuts very securely making a click sound, and it ensures that the lipstick’s packaging is purse-friendly.

The range name is printed in white on the tube along with other necessary product related information. The lipstick has a normal twist up mechanism, which works pretty smoothly. The shape of the lipstick bullet is quite different from usual lipsticks. The bullet is pentagon shaped and has different edges.

Overall, I did not find any cons about the packaging except that the bullet of this particular variant got detached from the base and I ended up breaking half of the bullet. And, I am left with just half of the quantity of the lipstick. The flat bullet in the pictures is because of the same.

NYX Full Throttle Lipstick Firestorm Features

I have recently reviewed the shade Up The Bass, which is a pretty neutral red shade. This shade called “Firestorm” is a warm-toned bright red color. It is a perfect bridal red shade. The shade is a way too bright for weak-hearted people. This is a perfect party shade and brightens up the face.

I am a die-hard lover of red lipsticks and love to include a variety of these in my collection. The lipstick does not contain any sheen or shimmers. It sets to a soft velvety matte finish initially and later on it looks perfect matte on the lips. The formula is amazingly pigmented. One swipe gives opaque coverage and covers the pigmentation of the lips.

I apply two coats to get perfect and even color on the lips. The color spreads evenly on the lips and never gets patchy. It does not give any streaky finish. There is no significant smell in this lipstick, which is a pro for people who do not appreciate fragrant makeup much.

The texture of the lipstick is incredible. I found its texture similar to Sugar Cosmetics Matte As Hell Crayons. It is so soft and smooth. It glides effortlessly on the lips like a lip cream and once it comes in contact with the skin it sets pretty quickly to an ultra-matte finish within seconds.

NYX Full Throttle Lipstick Firestorm Bullet

It goes pretty smoothly on the lips without causing any dragging of the lips. Normally matte lipsticks have the tendency to cling to the dry patches of the lips but not in the case of this one. It does not highlight dry patches but still, it is always advised to prep the lips well to get a perfect finish. The formula is so lightweight & feels super comfortable on the lips.

The lipstick is smudge proof and transfers a very bit. It survives normal sipping and light snacks but it fades away from the centre after a heavy meal. The lipstick is very moisturizing and it has a non-drying formula. It keeps my lips hydrated all the time. It does not settle into the fine lines of the lips.

The lipstick lasts for approx. 6-7 hours on my lips with a little fading. It leaves a stain behind, which can be taken off easily with a good makeup remover. This lipstick gets removed well with an oil-based remover since it sticks to the lips like a waterproof lipstick.
