One of the first liquid lipsticks on the scene, NYX's Lip Lingeries nail the creamy, nude hues that give off the ideal "oh, this? So natural, yet larger than life" hue we're all gunning for (IMHO). And now, your whole face can go entirely nude-but-not-really, because NYX has turned their liquid lip colors into an eyeshadow palette. How much is NYX's Lid Lingerie palette? Matte and made for bedroom eyes, the palette is about to take your matching game next level.
At a mere $10 dollars, the new release is an excellent alternative to the pricier palettes that follow the same theme — although the shadow choices are so well-curated that no exact dupes come to mind. The closest would be Urban Decay's Naked Basics palette (sidenote: naked/nude/lingerie... I'm sensing a theme), although the NYX has more warm browns than the neutrals the Naked Basics is known for.
According to the brand, the Lid Lingerie features six creamy matte neutrals, that pack a wide range of tones and depth into one palette. "Each velvety-matte shade blends like a dream and delivers incredible color payoff," true to Lip Lingerie form, with both warm and cool shadows included.
The transition from lips to eyes might not work so seamlessly with other lip looks (although you never know, draping, blue lipstick... these days boundaries are blurred) but the nude hues are just as beautiful for eyes as they are on lips.
And the colors are uncannily similar — the top row is dead on for Lip Lingeries in Cheekie, Embellishment, and Push Up, while the bottom row could be Bustier, Babydoll and Confident.
At $3 more for the palette than just one of the lip shades, there's not much stopping you from going all-out nude.
Considering the rave reviews NYX's shadow palettes have received recently, it looks like their shadow game is exactly on par with the quality of their lipsticks. Grab a palette on their website, or wait for the set to make its way to Ulta and drugstores. May your looks be nude!
