This month, I purchased one of NYX’s new Pin-Up Pout lipsticks. I didn’t see a lot of people talking about this lipstick online, except for Emily Fox, but I was intrigued to see how this lipstick would perform. I’ve been on the hunt for a new nude lipstick, but I didn’t know what to get. On a whim, I decided to pick up this lipstick in the colour Sophisticated.
At first, I was worried that the colour would be too nude on me, but it ended up being perfect. I have fair skin with a very yellow/warm undertone, so this nude is the perfect peachy nude on me. It looks much darker as an arm swatch, but it does look lighter on the lips. It’s similar to Aquarius by Colourpop, but Aquarius is more pink. The formula reminds me of MAC matte lipsticks; they’re matte, yet super creamy. These lipsticks will not dry out your lips, and they do not bleed beyond your lip line. The one shade I picked up is an everyday go-to for me now, and it is very comfortable to wear. I don’t even notice I’m wearing it sometimes.
The wonderful thing about this lipstick is that it’s really inexpensive. I got mine at Shopper’s for only $8.99! That’s half the price of a MAC lipstick. So if you’re looking to get a new lipstick, regardless of colour, I would recommend the NYX Pin-Up Pout Collection. From the NYX website, it says they come in 24 colours, so there’s bound to be a colour for you!
