The NYX Whipped Fouetté is a cheek and lip soufflé. This multi-use product is a mousse texture and can be used on the lips for a light flush of color, or used to bring a little rosiness to the cheeks. We are going to dive in to determining if this product is worth buying, or not!
The product comes in a relatively small container, weighing in at 0.27 fl. oz, which shows that the product is a little deceiving in that you get more than you think is in the tube. For reference, an average liquid lipstick such as Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick weighs 0.10 fl. oz. The packaging is clean with a black top and a glossy finish on the container.
When the top is twisted off, there is a flat doe foot applicator with a cutout in the center. I found this applicator to be a little annoying, because the product builds up in the center, which caused an uneven application. Globs of the product would come out unevenly on the lips or cheeks. None the less, I still tried to use this on multiple occasions.
When I applied this on my lips, I found that the product was exactly as they described, a mousse texture. For those who know me, mousse texture liquid lipsticks are my favorite, which is why I had high hopes for this. The color I have is Plush, a cool tone pink, which is very flattering on my skin tone. However, the application is where the product started to go downhill for me. I found that it was very streaky on the lips, and never really settled. The claim from NYX is that its going to be a matte finish, I found the product to be glossy and never really changed from the glossy finish to matte. It rubbed off very quickly and I found myself swiping on product every hour or so at work.
I tried a different application the next day, sticking just to my cheeks. I applied a few dots on the apples of my cheeks, and then applied it along the cheekbone. I used a Sephora flat top foundation brush to blend out the product. The product was very easy to work with and gave a sheer hint of color. The issue I had was it took off some of my foundation while blending, which gave the appearance of patchiness. My skin is by no means dry, so I never usually have this issue. The formula was more long wearing on the cheeks, but I couldn’t get over the patchiness.
After applying this a few more times and getting the same results, I decided I could give a proper review. The NYX Whipped Lip and Cheek Soufflé for me is a not worth it. I felt it was really hard to work with, and the results did not line up with the claims made for the product.
