NYX Professional Makeup are a brand which caused a lot of excitement within the beauty blogging community last year. The brand finally made it’s way into Boots stores across the UK and it is safe to say, we all went a little crazy about it!
My first blog post about NYX, New In: NYX Cosmetics back in July, featured the NYX eye brow pomade and matte setting spray. I have got on so well with the products since then, repurchasing them many times! I finally decided to head back to my local Boots store and finally try the lip products that NYX has to offer.
After a lot of swatching and testing the lipsticks, I decided to purchase the NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick. The sales advisor at the counter said it lasts longer than the Soft Matte Lip Cream, and I just really love matte liquid lipsticks, so I went for it!
The Colour / Shade
I got the shade 04 Soft-Spoken because I was looking for more nude shades for my lipstick collection. Most of the lipsticks I own are red, which don’t get me wrong is perfect for when the festive season comes around, but sometimes I can’t justify rocking up to a lecture with a bright red lip.
Soft-spoken is a nude shade with pink undertones which completes any makeup look for the day time. It is so wearable and is perfect for days at work or university. I honestly think it will look lovely on all skin tones.
I love the consistency of the NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick. It’s really light and when I’m wearing it I genuinely can’t feel it on my lips at all. It does require a couple of layers because it does apply a little thinly. Even so, the colour and pigmentation is so good that I don’t really mind!
The lasting power of this lipstick is okay but doesn’t last all day, i’d say it lasts for around 4 to 6 hours. It is great if you are heading out to go shopping or out with friends for the afternoon or evening, but I wouldn’t recommend it if you’re going for a meal because it does rub off quite a bit when you eat!
I would definitely recommend asking about NYX lip liners when purchasing a lipstick like this – I currently don’t have one which matches this shade. I am going to get one next time I’m in town! I think it would make the staying power that bit better!
I am in love with the NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick. It goes with almost any makeup look, yes I mean any, and the colour is just gorgeous. It is a shame about the short lasting power but for the price and pigmentation, I don’t mind reapplying throughout the day.
