The perfect liquid lippies for your lips and for your pockets
So we’ve talked about my lipstick obsession before, and if you follow me on Instagram then you know it’s real. To mix things up a little this time I asked my favorite girl to join me in trying out and reviewing a few colors from the NYX Liquid Suede line.
My niece Alaysha is 7, and she is a true DIVA. She takes any chance she can to come over and when she does it’s straight to the makeup. She’s even talked her mom into buying her a few things like blush and lip gloss that she WILL NOT leave the house without. So, of course, she was my first choice when choosing someone to partner with on a makeup review.
NYX promotes this line as being “luxe lip color at its finest” and I absolutely agree. I’ve tried plenty liquid to matte lipsticks and while I love the ease of applications most of them are very drying. Unlike them, this liquid suede line is soft, creamy, and non-drying. Its consistency is a little thicker than a pure liquid lipstick and it mattifies without leaving your lips looking cracked and dehydrated.
Another great thing about this lipstick is it’s longevity. While liquid to matte has always been king when talking long wear, many time you get cracks and flakes the longer you wear them. This is not the case at with this product. It wears very similarly to a lip stain without causing after wear tinting. So, it’s ideal for date night and events.
The colors we tried (L to R) are Downtown Beauty, Jet Set, LubHopper, Brooklyn Thorn, and Alien.
My niece is significantly lighter than me so most of the colors looked way different on her.
