For Valentine’s I got one of the best gifts ever… a trip to Ulta for a haul. I ended up putting a NYX lip primer and matte lipstick in my bag as I wandered around in circles. To me, I was hoping this combination would be the end to my woes; as every time I try any lip color lately I end up with incredibly dry and peeling lips.
The primer itself applies like a clear, soft lip pencil. The lipstick glided over the top of that without any overly drying feel but did appear matte on my lips which was exactly what I was going for. It only lasted a few hours and then I had to re-apply.
The color on the lipstick is a mix of nude/brown/red – which I love. It is color S19. I’m very curious to get more colors of this. But I think instead I will try another NYX long(er) *hopefully* lasting lip color. Both products cost less than $12 pre-tax, so it was no loss at all to me since both will continue to be used. After three days of use, I haven’t had the obnoxious peel as I normally would so overall I’m pleased!
