I got stressed 2 weeks ago and decided to stroll through the makeup aisle to destress. I landed on the nyx counter and found this new lip product.
Product description from their website:
Drench your kiss in knockout color! A stroke of Epic Ink Lip Dye coats lips with a downright dramatic stain. Super-saturated and lightweight, our formula dries to a Matte finish. This stunning lip dye is an absolute makeup bag must-have. Rock it alone for an effortlessly vibrant look. Or give your favorite lippies a boost by wearing it under a similar shade!
This comes in the usual nyx packaging. The tube is reflective of the shade of lip product with a black cap. It has a doe foot applicator which as far as I can remember is a bit longer than the applicator of the soft matte creams.
It’s easy to apply and feels lightweight. It only needs one layer to be opaque. It’s actually quite true to the description. However I feel that you need to be careful with the application as it’s really easy to paint outside the lines with this product.
Color payoff (shade: posed)
Before anything, here are the swatches of the collection:

10/10 for color payoff! Although I can’t say it’s full coverage since it’s more of a liptint rather than a lipstick and you’ll see a little bit of your natural lip color peaking through, it’s still very opaque and vibrant.
With the claims, this could be one of the best liptints that I’ve encountered. Usually tints would only cover the inner portion of my lips but this one covers all of my lips which is a huge plus for me!
I also used this for the ombre look that are famous with koreans and it looked good. It looked natural and like snow white lips in real life that’s wearable.
This is pretty long lasting. I wore this around 11am which is pretty near to lunch time. I had lunch and it was still decent. It wasn’t as vibrant after lunch but it wasn’t bad. It was still even throughout the lip unlike with lipsticks where the inside of the lips would not have product but the outwr lips would.
I wore it for a few more hours like that and only when I took a shower did it completely fade
I’d say this washes off with water and facial wash/soap though which is fine with me since I won’t be needing scrubs to save my lips. If it’s just plain water it doesn’t completely erase it although it fades.
From their website, it says that it retails for $4.90- $7.00 but I bought this for 350 pesos from SM department store (mall of asia). It’s pretty reasonable. 👍🏻
4/5 stars for this one! I will definitely use this over and over and would definitely buy more shades. I wish they had more nude shades though since the ones released are very vibrant and bold. I commented on one on their posts and they said they are working on it. Can’t wait!
This is lightweight and long lasting and wouldn’t hurt your wallets. Would recommend this product 100%
