Review // NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick
Since I received the first email from NYX about the new Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick, I've been waiting to give them a shot. I have multiple different colors of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream and I'm all about matte lip colors this season (can you tell?!). As soon as these were available through the Ulta online store, I snagged to dark grey I had my eyes on.
I've tried some lighter grey lip colors and while I like them, they don't feel very wearable on me. I was hoping that by trying Stone Fox, it would be dark and cool enough to make me feel comfortable wearing it. I'm anxious to try out the other colors in this collection, but I am waiting to swatch in person before buying!
I dig this color. It's a blue-ish grey and is soft, similar to the soft matte lip creams.
❖ Affordable at around $7 each and easily accessible through Ulta.
❖ A line of wearable colors! Like I said, I hope to swatch the others and maybe get more.
❖ Easy application and removal (but, uh, the easy removal is a little too easy)
❖ Unlike the Soft Matte Lip Creams, this lip color can doesn't feel as drying after prolonged wear.
❖ Cruelty Free!
❖ No feathering
❖ The applicator brush is flimsy. You're better off using a lip brush.
❖ Not as matte as I had hoped. The finish is still great, but I was hoping for a true matte like my Colourpop Ultra Mattes. It doesn't 'set' and instead has the texture of a lipstick.
❖ Doesn't wear well with eating and drinking. It's not kissable. Well, I mean, it is kissable, but your kissee is going to have some grey lip marks on 'em.
❖ It does wipe off easily, which can be messy for a color like this!
Comparatively, I would say that I prefer the Colourpop Cosmetics Ultra Matte, the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, and the Lime Crime Velvetines over the consistently of this cream lipstick. I really want it to be the best thing since sliced bread, but it seems as though it will be better for short-term wear.
Have you tried the NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks yet? Which color are you coveting the most? Would you wear grey lips?
