NYX Lip Lingirie in 'Embellishment' - Review, Look, and Comparison Swatches

Another liquid lipstick to add to the test pile.  NYX came out with their Lip Lingirie line a little while ago, so I grabbed 'Embellishment' during a trip to Ulta.  Since then it's been sitting in my lipstick storage, whispering "Play with me, Shawna".

Little known fact:  Estée Lauder was one of my first foundation loves, with their 'Double Wear Stay-in-Place' foundation.  Until then, I truly had no idea that foundation could actually make your face look like one consistent colour.
