NYX Cosmetics Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick
Hey guys! Today’s post is on something I got from my ipsy March 2016 Glam Bag. Here’s my take on the NYX Cosmetics Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick.
What I love about this product? I’ve been testing this for a few days now. This is the first lip product that’s not a lip balm from ipsy that I opened immediately after taking product shots for the blog. It comes in a tube packaging with the soft foam-tip applicator. The first thing I noticed is the texture. The best way I can describe it is it’s “cushion-y”. It applied so smoothly and nicely like a dream. It makes me think of a soft, cushion feeling. It feels like a soft, buttery cream being spread lovingly on my lips. It is very pigmented and the shade I got is a red called Kitten Heels. It’s bold and I love it. It dries matte but not as matte as most matte lipsticks. It is a little bit drying but not quite compared to other matte lipsticks I’ve tried so far. So far, it sounds like the best matte lipstick I’ve ever tried, eh? I will say yes. But (and a big BUT) I don’t own a huge collection of matte lip colors because most of them are drying and I avoid that. So…this means that my opinion is definitely something that you should treat as a tiny voice among many other louder ones — especially popular beauty bloggers. They have gone through probably 100 times more matte lip products than I have. I’m impressed with the lasting power too. It stayed through eating and drinking. The color does fade off over time but it’s more like a lip stain really. It’s still very pigmented on my lips and stays on pretty well. Make no mistake though — color does come off when my lips are rubbed up against other things such as a tissue paper. The color on my lips though remains but it’s just a tad lighter maybe.
What I don’t like about this product? Nothing really. It’s the least drying matte lipstick I’ve ever tried so I can’t wait to get more!
