I was (still am, actually) crazy about nude or neutral lip colors and then my focus got shifted to red, followed by pinks and now purple and berry. I sometimes ask myself as to where does it end? Well, for the love of purple and berries, I picked up few colors available in India and one of them is NYX Full Throttle Lipstick Trickster. While the other purple colors were a bit daring', this color is something I can flaunt like nobody's business. I have been wearing this for few occasions now and here's the full detailed review on the same.

My Experience With NYX Full Throttle Lipstick Trickster:

Packaging: NYX Full Throttle Lipsticks are well packaged. It comes in a slim cylindrical twist up function with a black opaque body. The top of the packaging is color coded which enables you to see the shade properly and the shade name is also written on the body. The structure of the lipstick bullet is great – it is slim with a hexagonal top that helps me to line and fill my lips easily and quickly. Overall, the packaging is light weight, slim, efficient and extremely travel-friendly.

NYX Full Throttle Lipstick Trickster Shade

Shade: The shade is described as a "bright violet mauve" by the website. In reality, it is beyond that, but the shade is difficult to elaborate. Trickster is a warm violet-purple with a tinge of pinkish touch on my skin tone. It is one of those purples which doesn't look stark but makes quite a statement on its own. You can wear it during day time as well. I never thought the color would be such a pretty one. For fair to medium skin tone, this color is stunning on its own. I own another bluish purple -Nykaa Purple Monster (comparison swatches below) and sometimes I mix these two colors to get the MAC Heroine kind-of a lip color.

Pigmentation: The pigmentation of the lipstick is good. It takes two swipes to get the full opaque coverage and evens out the lips. I generally don't use a concealer or liner and still, the pigmentation looks good on the lips.
Texture: The texture is a bit disappointing for a brand like NYX. The texture is slightly dry and waxy and therefore if you haven't prepped the lips beforehand, the lipstick will be tough to apply on dry lips as it looks patchy and uneven as well. There is a chemical smell which is really bothering. Thus, the texture of the lipstick is not all impressive.

Finish and Formula: The finish of the lip color is matte and looks good. But it has the tendency to accentuate on the fine lines when the lips start getting dry. The lip color hardly transfers though. The lipstick has the tendency to budge unevenly as well when you press the lips together.
Staying Power: The staying power of the lipstick is around 4-4.5 hours and after that, it starts getting slightly uneven if you are not careful while eating or drinking.

3.5/5

Final Note:

I expected a lot from the texture of NYX Full Throttle Lipstick and was planning to pick up the shade "Locked". But I am not very happy with this one. The only thing I liked is the stunning shade and workable lip color. If you want to purchase I would say pick up while it is on discount for the color because it is not worth the price.
