Summer Lips with NYX

Updating your makeup look can be super quick and easy with a splash of colour across your lips. With bright summer fashions being worn across the city, why not add a vibrant lip gloss for a statement look to not only be bang on trend, but to feel fabulous.

I’ve been wearing the NYX brand a lot the last few weeks as I mingle again with work colleagues in the office and attend parties with my friends, and I’ve found a statement colour I now can’t live without. The NYX Professional Makeup Slip Tease lip in shade 07 Feisty. It’s the most glorious shade of purple I’ve seen, and I simply cannot get over the staying power. The formula glides on beautifully and feels nicely moisturising even though the product has a matte finish. I have carried this product with me for touch ups but even though it’s a heavy colour that would usually need to be reapplied lots, this lasts hours! Probably thanks to the formula, but this highly pigmented shade is such a show stopper, despite being unusual, it has become a go-to for me for parties and clubs. Would you rock a purple?

The next shade I’ve worn a lot, mainly for everyday things such as shopping and going to the office, is more of a subtle shade then the statement making head turner above! NYX Professional Makeup Slip Tease Lip Lacquer in shade 15 Shady, is the perfect nude brown. It’s not too nude that it looks pale, but it’s not too brown that it becomes a statement. It’s the best of both worlds and certainly a little different to my daily red lip.

A brown lip is perfect to wear with summer whites and sandals, or glammed up for an evening of cocktails with a simple silk dress or oversized belted shirt. Once again NYX nailed it with the formula, it is super long lasting, it applied to my dry lips beautiful and didn’t cause any dry feeling. It also lasted a good amount of time before I had to reapply. It didn’t last as long as the purple shade but you can certainly go hours without having to top-up with it if you’re busy, which is great.

If you are to update one item from your makeup bag this summer, make it a lip product. They’re affordable, super easy to apply with no skill needed, and they can not only transform your look, but also your mood. Be a badass and perhaps try a daring shade of purple like me, or what about a delectable shade of chocolate for some cool summer vibes? Whichever you choose, smile and have fun.
