Another day, another matte liquid lip.
I swear I can do a whole separate website just devoted to matte liquid lipsticks. I love the formula, so I’m constantly on the hunt for some new favourites. I was always a fan of NYX Cosmetic’s Lip Lingerie, so naturally I was intrigued by their Liquid Suede.
The NYX Liquid Suede cream lipsticks, available in 24 shades, glide on extremely pigmented colour which sets to a matte finish. The brand claims it’s waterproof, lasting for hours after application.
I received two of the colours, Brooklyn Thorn (a deep taupe) and Respect the Pink (hot pink). The thing about this line, and how it differs from Lip Lingerie, is that there are so many cool, bright colours in here. The pink shade is very bright (I got so many compliments when I wore it) and they also offer up a hot blue, vibrant purple, and so on. What you see is what you get with these as the colour applies similar to how it looks in the tube and with basically one swipe of colour you get intense colour payoff.
These are a very comfortable wear. Typically matte liquid lipsticks are very drying but these are very nourishing on the lips. I wouldn’t call them a true matte, but instead more of a velvet. As for applying the colour, I really love the applicator since it’s one of those longer doe-foot ones that really let you apply the colour precisely. As a result, although you could use a liner with these, but you don’t really have to.
Whenever I check out the NYX section in the drugstore these are always picked over, meaning that they are quite popular. The brand has a few different formulas of matte liquid lipstick, and although I find Lip Lingerie to look more matte in texture, these are a good alternative as they are comfortable and they do leave your lips with a nice finish. I also love how they don’t look streaky at all and stayed on quite well throughout the day (which is often the case with some of those more “fun” colours).
It seems like NYX is always releasing new shades in the line so there’s a colour for everyone. Let me know if you’ve tried any of the shades out!
