Today’s review will be on the third shade from NYX’s Suede Cream lipstick range and it’s called “Pink Lust.” I have two other shades from this range – Orange County and Life’s A Beach.
USD $7 for 4 ml.
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.
This 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.
My Experience with NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick – Pink Lust/Passion Rose:
“Pink Lust” as the name suggests is a very bright pink with slightly blue undertones, making it appear a bit dark. Similar to the other two shades that I own, this shade too is very bright and the only product you would need to look decked up! This pink shade is loud and thus would not be suitable for office environment, but it’s a totally rocking color and would stand out in the crowd when you go out with your girl gang.
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 girls who have thin lips. The sponge is soft and picks up a considerable amount of product for application. There is no shimmer or glossiness to these lip creams. They are supposed to be matte in finish, but I realized that although it settles down to a matte finish, it is still creamy and not completely dry. So, you would need to exfoliate and moisturize your lips before applying these liquid lipsticks because they will highlight chapped lips and dry patches. I can feel the lip cream sitting on my lips which bothers me a bit.
Unlike the shade “Orange County,” this shade does not make the skin underneath look dark. After application, it looks streaky and layering feels heavy too. I would suggest to use a little for the first application and then let it dry for a minute or two before you apply the second coat. This shade again is a bit bold and tricky to carry off.
This lipstick is insanely pigmented and a single application brings out the true color, but since it comes up a bit 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. It does transfer to cutlery and would need re–application after a meal. It’s not completely waterproof but would require a makeup remover to take it off completely.
I am suddenly in a mood to try out such bright shades and this increases my confidence that I can rock such shades with ease 🙂
