NYX Liquid Suedes - Are They Worth The Hype?
With liquid lipsticks becoming the new craze I decided to pick up 3 of their NYX Liquid Suedes. These are guaranteed to stay on all day and moisturise your lips. It aims to leave a matte finish and be waterproof all day.
I picked up the shades: Stone Fox, Soft Spoken,
and Amethyst. As they have all performed the same I will talk about the texture and how they hold up first and then each shade in particular. I normally wear these for work where I'm doing long shifts and don't have time to re-apply my lipstick. I would say they last a good 7/8 hours but if you are eating something that is quite heavy it will wear a little on the lipstick but for an 8 hour hold that's pretty impressive.
The waterproof claim is very true, I tried to take this off with micellar water and it only managed to get off the part that had been worn a little by the food I ate that day anyway. I would recommend using a cleansing oil to remove this from your lips as it isn't harsh and doesn't involve scrubbing your lips together.
The liquid suedes retail for £6.50 which in my opinion is great for a liquid lipstick. For me they have more of a shine finish rather than a matte finish but surprisingly I think it looks better that way. Out of the three shades I have my favorite has to be Stone Fox. It's that in between grey and blue that seems to just brighten my face a little more. Yes you do get those odd looks of people but really any makeup can cause a glance off a stranger sometimes.
My other two are Soft spoken and Amythest. Soft spoken is this really weird shade. It's more of a dark mauve shade which I will be looking forward to wearing more towards the Autumn time. With this type of colour I was surprised that it wasn't a matte finish but there's just a slight shine to them rather than a gloss like finish that I normally hate.
Ameythst is the newest one in my collection, it's a bright purple shade that just looks electric when it's on. For me this is a more darish shade but I think with maybe a full black outfit or an outfit with not a lot to it this works well.
Overall, I'm seriously impressed by the range. I already have my eyes on a few more shades but I'm currently trialing a few different liquid lipsticks. If you have any recommendations for me feel free to comment them down below.
Until next time, Chloe!
