Throughout the past year, I have tried so many different NYX lipsticks from gloss to matte, liquid to lipstick, but up until now, I hadn’t tried the full throttle lipstick range. To be honest, it somehow managed to escape me and I only spotted it for the first time the other day when I was doing some shopping in Boots.
Of course, I was intrigued so had to buy it to try it out, and I’m so glad I did because I absolutely love it! I honestly think it’s my favourite NYX lipstick that I’ve tried to-date.
First off, the shade is exactly the kind of shade I love to wear in the winter. It is a rich berry tone with an opaque coverage and the pigment is incredible. Not only that, but the colour pay off you get as soon as you apply it is equally as good.
The formula is smooth with a slight creamy texture, but with a super matte finish. The minute you put this on, it dries in and literally does not budge at all. In fact, it is one of the best lipsticks I’ve ever tried for great staying power that doesn’t dry out your lips in the process.
The lipstick bullet itself is quite thin which I wasn’t sure about at first, but it actually allows for a very precise application which believe me, is a good thing as this dries in so quickly. To be honest, I just loved how easy the whole application process was in general.
I like this so much, I’m genuinely gutted I can’t wear it again over the festive season. The formula, finish and colour are all brilliant and I can’t wait to try out some more shades in the range soon!
