My Experience with NYX Orange County Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick:
I was super excited to see this range from NYX and since matte lip crèmes are a huge hit in the market, I decided to try these beauties. There are some really good and different colors in this range. They have a color called “Stone,” which is almost greyish black, but I have no guts to give it a try. “Orange County” is a super neon orange shade. This shade is all that you need to stand out in the crowd. It’s a gutsy shade, absolutely adorable for day use, but definitely not for office environment; this shade is very loud. This color instantly brightens up your face and definitely gathers a lot of attention.
The texture of this range is extremely creamy and butter like. The application wand and application sponge are very long. I feel the sponge is big enough to let the color spread outside the lines. So one needs to be careful while application, especially those of you who have 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 though it settles down to a matte finish, it feels still creamy and not completely dry. You will need to exfoliate and moisturize your lips properly prior to application. This shade will highlight dry patches. I can feel the lip cream sitting on your lips which bothers me a bit.
A very strange thing that I noticed is that when you wear this shade, the skin beneath looks like it was heavily pigmented. I mean the cream makes the skin beneath look a little black; not sure if this is only with me or anyone else feels the same. 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.
These lip cremes by NYX are insanely pigmented and a 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 to fade away, leaving an outline.
It does transfer to cutlery and would need re-application after every meal. This is not completely waterproof, it would require a makeup remover to get off completely. It would also stain if you are not careful during application.
