Today’s review will be on the second shade from this range called ‘Life’s A Beach’. I have two other shades from this range, Orange County and Pink Lust.
Doll up your lips in plush and vibrant color! Our Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick glides on and sets into a striking matte finish. Velvety soft and waterproof, this long-lasting lippie creates a positively polished look with every swipe.
My Experience with NYX #02 Life’s A Beach Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick:
The Liquid Suede Lipstick comes in a chubby plastic bottle with all the details written across the bottle. The color of the bottle is same as the shade it belongs to. The bottle comes wrapped in a plastic sheet. The cap of the bottle is black in color and forms the wand for application. The number is written at the bottom and the name is written across the body of the bottle.
Life’s A Beach is a very bright coral peach shade with slight pinkish undertones. Again like Orange County this shade is bright and loud. Apt for sunny bright days, but a little hard to pull off in office environment. This shade brings a nice peachy glow to your face.
The texture of this range is extremely creamy and butter like. The application wand and sponge are very long. I feel the sponge is big enough to let the color spread outside the lines. So one has be careful during application, especially ones who have small and thin lips. The sponge is soft and picks up a considerable amount of product for application. There are no shimmers or any glossiness in these lip creams.
They are supposed to be matte in finish but I realized that although it settles down to matte it still is creamy and not completely dry. So you will need good exfoliated and moisturized lips for these lippies. This shade will highlight unexfoliated and dry patches. Also due to the color itself I feel it accentuates fine lines too. I can feel the lip cream sitting on my lips which bothers me a bit.
Unlike the Orange county shade, this shade does not make the skin underneath look darker. After application it looks streaky and layering feels heavy too. I would suggest to use a little product for first application and then let it dry for a minute or two before you apply the second coat. I think this shade is good for young and girls with light skin tone. Dark skinned beauties might find this shade a bit tricky to carry.
These lippies are insanely pigmented and single application also brings out the true color. But due to being a little streaky, a second coat is required. The shade gives a good opaque coverage to the lips. The staying power is around 5-6 hours after which it starts fading away leaving an outline to the lips. It does transfer to cutlery and would need reapplication after meal. These are not completely waterproof, but would require a makeup remover to get off completely. Even with all its cons, I love the way the shade looks and will have to find a way to work around the cons.
