Liquid lipsticks are in and the NYX Lip Lingeries have been all over YouTube for the past six months. I wasn't that interested in it until a fellow makeup enthusiast told me how much she can't wait for Canada to have them. Just like that, I noticed they were stocked at Shoppers Drugmart. Shoppers has the full 12 shades priced at $10.49 CAD. By the time, I saw them, a lot of the colours were already picked up leaving a few shades left. It was actually quite hard deciding which colour to chose as the promotional pictures don't really do a good job in showing how the colour actually is. A lot of the colours look incredibly similar in the tube. Let's just say I stood in the makeup isle for  quite a few minutes puzzled about which colour to get.

In the end, I grabbed 08 Bedtime Flirt because I liked the name. It's cheeky and reminds me of Charlotte Tilbury's Pillow talk. In case you don't know me, I'm quite light with a cool undertone. Pinky nudes that are two shades darker than my skin tone works best for me while anything peachy, or peachy brown tends to make my skin look shallow and washes me out.

It's really hard to describe Bedtime Flirt as it seems to look a bit different depending on the lighting.  Every shade in this line seems to have a bit of a greyish base but Bedtime Flirt has just enough pinky brown nude to work for me. The best way to describe it is that it's a medium tone pinky brown with a grey base. On my lips, it's just a tad nudier than my natural lip colour so it's perfect for me. I'd say that this looks best in natural lighting. In florescent lighting, like bathrooms, this looks downright grey for some strange reason! It's like the yellow lighting sucks out the pink tones.  If you really can't decide on a shade, regardless of your skin tone, Bedtime Flirt is probably your best bet.

I love how it makes my lips look flirty and pouty.

Many people complain that the wand is too long and not flexible enough to apply the product on well. Personally, I didn't have an issue with either. My hands aren't the most stable but I was able to apply this in one go. If the applicator is anymore flexible, it would just be a mess. With the current shape of the wand, I am able to apply the edges decently.

The consistency is really light and mousse-like wet but it dries down completely matte and when it does, the vibrancy tones down as well so it's not as dark as it looks in the tube. The odd thing is that once it dried, my lips felt sticky whenever I pressed them together. Nothing patched off but it's just so unexpected to feel that tacky sensation! With one layer I was able to cover my lips entirely but I like to go over it again just to make sure everything is covered. Also, once it dries, it does not transfer.  Without food, I did find this product to last really well. It didn't smudge or budge the whole day. It also felt really comfortable on my lips for the most part. After a few hours it was a bit drying but nothing overwhelming. I really appreciate how this product didn't cling onto any patchy areas of my lips too.

This liquid lipstick only seems to rub off when it comes into contact with oil - like from a lip balm, fries, or greasy food. Once the oil rubs into the lipstick, it will wear off easily so a reapplication is necessary after eating. To remove this, you just need a oil based makeup remover. It will come right off!

*Edit* I've just tried the Sephora Collection Cream Stains in the colour Marvellous Mauve. Everyone has been raving about these saying that they last all day long while being comfortable. I have to say, I really, really like Nyx's Lip Lingerie formula better, at least in the way that they've made Bedtime Flirt. Separate review will be coming soon.
Will I get any more colours in this line? I have my eyes on Exotic, a brick red, and Lace Trim, a light pinky nude. I don't think that it's necessary to get one in every colour since some of the lighter colours look similar. As this line caters to a wide range of skin tones, I would just recommend purchasing the ones that you think will work with your skin tone.


  1. Wow that shade looks like THE perfect nude shade that I've been looking for! I've actually haven't heard much about these anywhere and didn't even know they existed. :o I'll definitely have to check it out. It kinda reminds me of the Kylie Jenner lip products.

    1. I've never tried the Kylie Jenner products so I'm not really sure if they're alike but the colour choices are all in those greyish/brown/ nude categories :)

  2. That shade looks perfect one you. But I'm not very light, I wonder if it will look good on me like that? :( I will definitely check other shades. Here in US it's only $6 to $7.


    1. Try it! I've seen this look amazing on so many skin tones :)

  3. I didn't realize Shoppers has them for $12.99. London Drugs has them for $9.99 (but you're on the East Coast, right?) and Well.ca has them for $8.99 last time I checked. I think I want another one, but in a lighter shade since all of mine are on the darker side. I'm seriously thinking of picking up Bedtime Flirt next time haha. It looks really good on you!

    1. Yup, East Coast. We don't have London Drugs yet (I think). I just wait for a sale at Shoppers, like right now it's on for $8.99! Bedtime Flirt has looks beautiful on everyone so you should definitely try it. Although I wouldn't say it's all that light. It's probably a MLBB nude.

  4. That is a gorgeous shade on you! I'll have to pick some of these up.


  5. This is one of those shades I would wear to death haha! So so pretty, definitely want to pick this up

    1. Heck ya! I'm tempted to just stick to this shade all day everyday.

  6. I haven't tried any NYX Lingerie either but your blog post makes me really want to try it. That shade is a great everyday shade especially for fall & winter. :)
