This semester has been a lil wild ?? enjoy this late post!
Since liquid lipsticks are all the rage, I feel like every cosmetics company is releasing them. It’s great, though, because consumers get a variety of prices, formulas and colors.
A brand that really intrigued me with their release of a liquid lipstick is NYX. Their liquid lipsticks are called NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick. Before its launch, it was presented as a liquid lipstick, but then when reviews of it came out, people said it’s not a liquid lipstick. I think it is, though. It wears well like one should, and its formula is creamier and moussier than a Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip, for example.
The color I was lusting over was Soft Spoken, so I purchased it when I saw it at Ulta without thinking twice about it.
Soft Spoken is listed on the NYX website as a mauve nude; I agree. It’s a versatile nude because the mauve tone is universally flattering. It looks a bit deeper on me because I have pretty fair skin, but it feels like a nude because it compliments my skin tone and looks perfect with any makeup look. It’s one of my favorite lipsticks of all time!
This formula is creamy, as I previously mentioned, and super comfortable. It’s not transfer proof, but I think that’s okay because I see this as an everyday lip product. I don’t want it to be too drying.
It holds up well and doesn’t bleed or feather. It responds well with 2 coats as long as you allow it to dry a bit for about 7-10 minutes before the next coat. Touch-ups are hassle-free, which is another big plus for me. It does come off considerably when I eat, but as long as I lightly press a napkin or tissue between my lips before reapplying it, the lipstick doesn’t look or feel weird or too tacky.
The formula also doesn’t feel like it completely dries down and that’s another reason why people argue that it’s not a liquid lipstick, but that’s fine with me.
This lipstick retails for $7.99 at the retailers I mentioned above. I give this a 5/5!
