Review:NYX Full Throttle Lipstick - Lip Swatches6:47:00 PM
The day after Christmas is always a relaxing day for me. I usually spend my day shopping and catching up with friends and this year was no different. When I walked into Ulta, I noticed a display
of new NYX lip products and the one that intrigued me the most was the NYX Full Throttle Lipsticks. I purchase one and have been wearing it and testing it out for a few weeks and it's all ready for review.
According to Ulta.com this product is described as follows:
It's the color addicts ultimate fix and a makeup artist's dream: NYX Cosmetics' waterproof Full Throttle Lipstick covers your lips with a super saturated matte color and features a unique bullet with a beveled edge for lining, filling and perfecting your pout to your heart's desire.
Availability: Ulta and NYXcosmetics.com
Color: 01 Con Artist ( deep brown toned red)
I will be rating all aspects based on Pigmentation, Longevity, Packaging, and Performance on a scale from 1 - 5.
Pigmentation - 4.5
As you can see from the lip swatch from above this product applies with full opacity. I have darker pigmented lips and this covered all of it.
Longevity - 4.5
So when I first purchase this, the swatch on my hand literaly lasted through a nap and a shower, This formula goes on creamy and sets down to waterproof matte finish. YES, its WATERPROOF!! It lasted all day.
Packaging - 3
So one of the claims of this product is the unique bullet shape that is supposed to aid in application, I think that the bullet helps, but after one wear my bullet was worn down making it a regular round shaped lipstick. I think the initial concept was good, but the shape isn't going to last. Other than that, the packaging is like a skinnier version of the NYX round lipsticks.
Performance - 4.8Like I said in the pigmentation section. The formula of this is actually amazing!! It goes on creamy, but after a few minutes, sets to a matte waterproof formula, that did not move all day even through drinking water. I would assume that it would come off if you ate something really greasy, but I did not (winter diet struggle life).
Y'all! I really love this lipstick. I kind of regret not getting more colors. I think I will order more off of the NYX website and use code "welcome25" so I can get a little discount (25%),
Has anyone else tried out the Full Throttle Lipstick? Comment below if you have or want too.
