My lip color of choice right now is any muted tone shade. If you have seen my Instagram posts lately, most of my lip colors tend to deviate towards the same – hints of brown, nude and even ashy tones for that matter.

Ever since I laid my eyes on NYX Lip Lingerie in Embellishment, I have been on the hunt and even experiment with various lip colors to make my own shades. And this one, in particular, came out very well! I have been asked constantly as what I wore in the following picture which I posted on Instagram recently, so I decided I would do a little post and let you know.

NYX Lip Lingerie in Embellishment + Soft Matte Lip Cream in Seoul

My recent NYX haul from the US got me some matte colors and among them, Soft Matte Lip Cream in Seoul and Lip Lingerie in Embellishment are the ones I loved most.

Seoul is a pretty peppy color all by itself but since there’s change in the season, I decided to tweak my lip colors a bit to suit the monsoon time.

Here, I used Seoul all over my lips and dabbed Embellishment generously in the center of the lips and blended it good with my fingertips. This actually gave the peppy Seoul a more of ashy tone which I found super pretty!

Embellishment as alone washed me off and it didn’t really go well with brown lip colors either. So I picked a peppy color and tried the Embellishment and it works like a charm.

The final result is a beautiful taupe-ish grey with strong undertones of Purple-pink which looks fabulous in person.

Since both are matte, I assumed they would feather away and/or settle in the fine lines making it non-wearable for all day sort, but luckily nothing such happened. It survived a full course meal and also a cold coffee prior to that. No touch-ups needed whatsoever for strong 4-5 hours which for me is a pretty decent time.

However using a good lip scrub and prepping the lips with a moisturizing lip balm showed better results.

Overall, this is my favorite lip color at the moment. Though it’s dark and has undertones of pink, it perfectly suits the monsoon time because of the ashy tone of Embellishment to the lip color.

 

What’s your favorite shade for Monsoons? Did you try NYX Lip Lingerie yet?
