NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick: Honest Opinion!

Hello my lovely Kaybies! I hope you all are having a wonderful day/evening!

I was just watching the Grammys and had to leave once Kendrick’s album won over Culture by Migos. That album had, like, the BIGGEST hit of the year! Ugh *rolls eyes for like the tenth time in 2 minutes*.

Anyways I digress. I put a poll on Insta and the winner of my “first Review topic” was the Nyx Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick! So let’s dive in *Trey Songz voice*

All 10 Shades of the Liquid Suede that I’ll be reviewing and already own! Left to right: Respect the Pink, Pink Lust, Amethyst, Kitten Heels, Cherry Skies, Brooklyn Thorn, Downtown Beauty, Stone Fox, Jet Set, and Oh, Put it on

So I bought these pretty much individually (Brooklyn thorn, Stone Fox, and Oh put it on came in a pack) a while back. I just purchased their matching liners today so I can review that as well (leave a comment if that’s something you want to see). But for today, I’m going to review these by color, quality, and skin tone compatibility (for me).

Lets start with the color. They’re all swatched on my arm here (same order as in above picture). The colors are VERY vibrant and unique. I think what I like most is that they can be really cool on their own, or you can mix them for a new look each time. I will say that Jet Set and Stone Fox are my 2 least favorite. Jet set is a deep cobalt blue and Stone Fox is a purpleish-bluish-grey. They are still vibrant, just a little hard to wear on a daily basis. They require a special kind of creativity that I possess, and don’t use every day. Also, the description from the website can be a little misleading (like Kitten Heels is orangey-Red (on me) and Brooklyn thorn (on me) is more of a mauveish brown) but the colors are super intense so A+!

As far as quality goes, I’m mostly super happy. Some require two coats to look opaque, and others are a “one swipe covers both lips” opaque. They also are not super drying which is a “thank you God” moment. They do dry to a matte finish and it’s definitely not as wet as a lipgloss (or even intense butter gloss) but I personally prefer that because they stay on longer that way. I DEFINITELY recommend exfoliating first, otherwise it WILL stick to any dry, dead, or peeling skin. They also don’t dry out after two weeks which gets this product an A on quality too.

My fav shade

Lastly here is skin tone compatibility. Being a woman of color, I usually ask when reading a review “how will this look on MY skin”. And the truth is, we all range in so many shades so I can only show you my skin and hopefully you get an idea from that. Honestly I think I’ll give a A- for compatibility. The reason being is because I do feel like I have to mix a lot of the colors to get the look I want. Respect the Pink is so bright on me, Barbie would be like “chill, girl!” And Kitten Heels looks wayyyy too orangeish red on me. And EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I wear “Oh, put it on” (my favorite shade) everyone thinks it’s black *cries because I’m going for the deep purple winter-fall look you see all over… well, EVERYWHERE*. But I have found so many awesome combinations that I think work really well so it still gets a high rating.

 

 

 

All in all, I love these lipsticks and they are my go to lip products over all the others I own. A cool range of colors, high quality for the price, and don’t make me look weird when I wanna switch it up.  I hope this was helpful and if you want to know more, message me or leave a comment!

Sincerely, Kay~
