NYX Liquid Suede cream lipsticks

Like most beauty bloggers who saw a full NYX display at Shoppers in the last few weeks, I wanted to take a few things home :)

As in most cases, Canada is a little behind on NYX’s new releases, so I only wanted the Liquid Suede cream lipsticks. 4 to be exact: Sandstorm, Soft-Spoken, Cherry Skies and Vintage.

These stay more true to the liquid lipstick category. I assume the “cream” part in the name is to describe the texture, as they go on very smooth and feel comfortable. They do dry matte with a thin coat, but the process is a little slower, so for the first minute or 2, you can still notice the shine.

Sturdy plastic tube with black cap, featuring a faceted pattern at the top and a slightly angled sponge tip applicator. No application issue to mention.

About the long lasting and waterproof claims, I do notice little transfer (but less noticeable thanks to the matte finish) and some fading (evenly) after a meal, more in darker shades than lighter shades. I get about 3-4 hours of wear, on average.

Good colour range with 12 shades from brown, nude to purple, even black. Swatches below show the transition – firstly applied/ in the sun (left) and dried/ in the shade (right).

Sandstorm, described as a true nude, goes quite brown on me but looks great on top of a red liner, while Soft-Spoken is a mauve nude (slightly lighter to MAC Whirl), easier to wear. Cherry Skies, a deep wine red (near dupe of Anastasia Heathers), and Vintage, a mauvy plum, are more bold and take more care with application.

The tubes look reasonably big but actually hold less product than, say, L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte glosses – 0.13oz/ 4ml vs. 0.21oz/ 6.3ml for about the same price – $10 each on NYX Canada website or $10.99 at Shoppers (on sale for $9.49 right now).

About Sparkled Beauty

I love makeup with passion. No, I was not growing up holding eyeshadow in my hand, and I went through many years not having much makup on my face until one day it hit me. It was probably just the right time for me to open up my heart and let it in, and I could never stop.
