If you have been following along on my Instagram or this blog, you would know how O b s e s s e d I have been with NYX Matte Lipsticks lately. I have over 10 in my collection, and it just keeps growing. I seem to pick up a new shade every time I see one. There are a thousand and one reasons why I love these lipsticks. They are matte. They are long lasting. They have them in so many different shades. The bottles are super cute. This list goes on and on.
Sadly, with this shade... It's just not one hundred percent.
Lace Detail in NYX's Lingerie line, is just not up to par with other previous shades that I have used. I have come to notice that the lighter shades are not as matte or opaque as some of the darker tones. I do love this shade though. It's a nude tone with a hint of pink. My biggest issue with Lace Detail Lingerie Matte Lipstick is that since it is a lighter tone, it is very streaky.
I had to keep applying it on my lips a few times, just to get a smooth non streaky look. But after that it just looked very cakey. I had to take it off and reapply a few times before I got the look that I really wanted. Although, once it does dry up most of the streakiness does go away. It's not something that you can't deal with, but from other Nude Lipsticks I have picked up from NYX, I am sad to say that this was not a 10 out of a 10.
I do still plan on using it because you can layer it to get the look you want, but It's a tad frustrating when I have to reapply over and over to get the smooth consistency instead of the streaky look.
