Hello everyone! I am thrilled to be sharing yet another post with you.
I have been playing with the new NYX High Voltage lipsticks that were recently released in their new product line up for spring. The collection showcases 22 creamy shades ranging from soft nudes to rich plums. They are sold on the NYX website or at Ulta and retail for $6.00.
Let’s begin the review!
– Twisted –
Twisted is a highly pigmented electric violet with cool undertones. It has a rich cream finish that feels comfortable on the lips. This daring shade is right up my alley! There is something about a purple lip that adds such an edgy yet feminine touch to any look. This particular lipstick delivers extremely well with pigmentation as it glides on effortlessly and with intense color.
– Flutter Kiss –
Flutter kiss is a soft tawny pink with a hint of brown blended in. I am absolutely in love with this lipstick. It is a “my lips but better” shade on me and I find it absolutely perfect when I am seeking a natural, nude lip for a casual makeup look or to pair with a smokey eye. The creamy consistency adds a nice hint of shine and allows it to glide on beautifully.
– Free Spirit –
Free Spirit is a rich, highly pigmented hot tangerine shade that will guarantee to turn heads with it’s unbelievable pigmentation. Of the three shades, I find this one to be the trickiest to apply as it can gather in the crevices of the lips leaving rather unsightly clumps to settle. I found lightly smoothing it with a finger (or lip brush) can help, but over blending can lead to patchiness.
– Drawbacks –
There are a couple drawbacks of these particular shades to take note of. The longevity is not as substantial as the matte lipstick range and does require touch ups especially after eating or drinking. I don’t expect a cream formula to be as long lasting, but it is something to consider. Additionally, the brighter shades may feather so using a lip liner can be helpful.
– Final Thoughts –
I have truly found myself enjoying these lipsticks! The budget friendly price and large shade selection are wonderful. NYX has once again done a fabulous job of releasing beautifully pigmented lipsticks that are easily accessible. I cannot get enough of the rich creamy finish that adds just enough shine to enhance the bright colors even further. I highly recommend checking these out at your local Ulta! The packaging may not seem grandiose, but the pigmentation will blow you away!
Which shade is your favorite from the line?
Until next time. Take care!
