Today I’m reviewing two of the lip products from Nyx’s recent Machinist Collection (inspired by Steampunk). The Machinist Collection has three themes: Grind, Steam and Ignite. There are two lip products for each of the three themes – the Machinist Lipstick and the Machinist Lip Lacquer. I purchased both in the Ignite shades.

Stud those lips in shimmery color using our limited-edition Machinist Lipstick. This comfortably creamy formula is loaded with ultra-fine pearls that add over-the-top luster to your pout. Available in honey bronze, copper and bronze—representing the Grind, Steam and Ignite facets of our Machinist collection, respectively—these high-coverage lippies are the perf accessories.
The Ignite shade of the Lipstick is a dark, vampy, metallic bronze shade. In the tube it looks like it would be more wine toned, but on me it pulls more brown. I do find it a little on the drying side, not terribly so – comparable to a mildly drying matte lipstick. I find that most metallic lipstick shades feel like when I wear them.
The Lip Lacquer:
Go full steam ahead with Machinist Lip Lacquer. This limited-edition lippie is the Slip Tease Full Color Lip Lacquer you know and love—now in steampunk-inspired shades! Available in wine (Grind), blue (Steam) and nude (Ignite), each grungy tone adds a glossy touch to the Grind, Steam and Ignite facets of our Machinist collection. This perfectly plush lippie goes on silky-smooth and provides full coverage.
The Ignite shade of the Lip Lacquer is a very wearable nude shade that is super comfortable on the lips – and surprisingly long wearing for a glossy finish liquid lipstick. I’ve been wearing this one a LOT lately!

I’ve also been testing out one of the Machinist Palettes – swatches and review to follow in a few days.
Have you tried anything from the Machinist Collection?
Nyx is cruelty free, however their parent company is not.
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!
Disclosure: I purchased these things.
