Hello gorgeous ladies,
When it comes to affordable new makeup, I don’t have to think twice! NYX sure is one of my favourite drugstore brands for makeup and has now improved a lot on quality and packaging. Today the product that I am going to share my thoughts on is the NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Amethyst.
Price: CAD 10 (Approx. INR 520)
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 Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick – Amethyst:
Packaging: The NYX Liquid Suede Lipstick comes in a chubby plastic tube which is colour coded to the shade of the lip stick. All other details about the product are mentioned on the tube in black. The tube comes wrapped in a protective plastic paper with some perforation for opening. The cap of the tube is black has a flat sponge tip application wand.
Colour: “Amethyst” is a super bright, cool, blue-toned purple shade. This shade is absolutely unique and loud thus restricting its usage to only special occasions. The colour in the tube looks a tad bit darker than the actual shade of the lipstick. I am not too sure if everyone is going to like this shade, but this baby sure has a safe place in my vanity! This shade will suit most Indian skin tones I believe.
Pigmentation: This lip cream is intensely pigmented and delivers full colour pay-off in just one swipe on the hand. But while applying on the lips, the application is a bit streaky in the first swipe and it needs some more to cover that up for an even application. The shade gives enough coverage to hide pigmented lips as well.
Texture: The texture of this lip colour is super creamy and feels very buttery like cake frosting. This baby is not as watery or drying as standard liquid lipsticks and also does not contain any shimmers or shine. The color is ideally supposed to be matte, but even after a few minutes of application, it does not dry completely, but remains creamy. Hence I prefer topping it off with translucent powder to mattify and prevent any transfer of lip product.
Longevity: The staying power of this lippie is around 5-6 hours after which it starts fading unevenly. If you want to wear this lippie for the whole day, you need to have this baby handy for re-application; else it will give a shabby look to the lips. Since it does not dry down completely, it does transfer to cups and mugs.
