NYX METALLIC MATTE LIQUID SUEDE LIPSTICKS || REVIEW + SWATCHES
I’m back with another beauty post, this time for the new NYX liquid suede lipsticks with a matte metallic finish. I recently received this in a PR package from NYX and I finally had time to play with them today.
In Denmark they retail for 59DKK here.
If you guys have seen most of my videos then you’ve probably heard me mention a few times how I usually steer clear of metallic lipsticks since I usually find them very unflattering on me and to be honest, I usually add them to my giveaway boxes right away when I get some for PR since I know I won’t be using them.
These ones caught my eye though! I heard a few people talk about them during my recent trip with NYX to Oslo and so many talked about how they dried down completely and were almost impossible to remove without an oil cleanser and that really intrigued me since the regular Liquid Suedes were too creamy for my taste. So I just had to give these a try and see the difference!
I got 10 out of the 12 colors and I love the color selection! There’s a good mix of light nudes, browns, reds, darks, pinks and some more unusual colors.
The applicator is super nice, like most NYX lippies, and it makes application really easy and precise. I find that I don’t need a lipliner for these as I can get a sharp clean line with this itself and the wand is soft and comfortable to use and applies with no streaks.
Top to bottom:
(not completely dry)
Bella (deep reddish copper), Acme (strawberry red), Buzzkill (magenta), Biker babe (burgundy), Neat nude (dirty grey plum), Ego (bright purple), Go rouge (gunmetal),
New era (deep metallic bronze), Mauve mist (warm nude rose) & Exposed (pale gold)
These swatches so beautifully and smoothly. There’s no streakiness and the colors are fully opaque and so pigmented. They apply the same on the lips and I only needed two dips to cover my lips with a fully smooth opaque layer.
They have a metallic finish (duh lol) but they’re not gritty in the texture which I LOVE because I hate the feeling of gritty glitter or shimmer on my lips. They also dry completely matte and smudge proof and they need a cleansing oil to be removed. I have a swatch on my hand that’s been there for 12+ hours and it’s still intact after rubbing it, washing my hands and doing the dishes so these will be perfect for holiday parties where you’ll be eating and drinking a lot! (:
They’re also not too drying on the lips and even though they were 100% matte and dry they still felt comfortable. They also didn’t crumble or rub off on the inner lip.
I’m super surprised by how much I actually like these seeing how they are metallic, but I’m honestly excited to do looks with these for the holidays! I can imagine using the dark and red colors for some sparkly thanksgiving/christmas looks <3
Let me know if you’ve tried these yet!
