Lip Pot

My Experience with NYX Lip Lacquer Pot in Okie Dokie Artichokie:

Precisely, it is a lip product in a glass pot packaging. Thicker in consistency than a lip gloss and thinner than actual lipstick.  The shade I have is called “Okie Dokie Artichokie.” That’s a funny name for a lip product :).  The name has nothing to do with the shade I believe.  It looks like a peachy brown shade with golden shimmer in the pot.

You are not going to get the same color that you see in the pot. It looks like a shimmery nude shade on the lips. The thicker you wear, the more shimmery it would look. So, I like to use a thin layer, which looks pretty with a glossy look. A good choice of nude shade for medium to dark skin beauties.

Though NYX says that you can carry this around and apply on the go, you need a tool to apply this. You cannot apply this with your fingers like a lip balm in a pot (Like TBS lip butters);I am not even talking about the hygiene point here. Its about the application itself. You are going to mess around if you choose to apply with your fingers. Needless to say that your nails are going to get more messier while dipping your fingers into the pot.  So, the only solution is to use a lip brush or a q-tip to apply it. I use with my Vega Reversible Lip Liner Brush.

Lip Pot

It does not have any smell or taste to it. It goes on easily and stays for around 2 hours without eating or drinking anything. Keeps lips moisturized until the product is there on the lips.

Final Thought:

This is just an okay product which serves just like a lip gloss (maybe just this shade).  I think a lip gloss is more functional than this and there is nothing very unique about the color as well. All I have to say is that this is not a must-have product 🙂

  1. ya it seems like not so great a product for 450 bucks. I would still prefer the Maybelline watershine lipsticks but I do love the little pot it comes in and the color looks really pretty. For this price wish it had shown the exact color on the lips as well.
