Review | NYX Liquid Suede Lipstick - Sandstorm

A month or two ago I found out that there would soon be a NYX counter at my local boots; I was so excited and found myself walking in  as soon as it arrived. As I was on a budget I went in only to have a browse (and using as much will power as I could muster) managed to come out with just one Liquid Suede Lipstick!

Each NYX Liquid Suede Lipstick comes in a chubby plastic tube (housing 0.13oz of product), with an attached flat sponge tip application wand. I picked up my Liquid Suede Lipstick in the shade Sandstorm; Sandstorm is a medium cool toned nude shade. I've been looking for a nude lipstick for my collection as I've heavily been using Mac's Velvet Teddy recently. The shade is so pretty on and is definitely wearable on a daily basis. It's worth taking note that the tube of lip colour looks a bit darker than the actual shade of the lipstick.

As for the formula, it wasn't drying for my lips at all (unlike a lot of matte products I've tried out); it was so comfortable to wear, so much that I forgot I was wearing anything on my lips! Although it was lightweight, it does take some time for the creamy formula to dry. Especially if you've applied it thick or used multiple coats; I would say that it takes anywhere between two and six minutes to dry.

The Liquid Lipstick is very pigmented, but becomes a bit streaky at first and may need to cover it up with more product for an even application. But, there was no problems cracking or bleeding which is a definite plus! I also lasted roughly five hours before I had to reapply.

I like to pair this particular shade up with Barry M's lip liner #17 and together it makes an absolutely gorgeous colour!For only £6.50 NYX's Sandstorm is enough for me to fall in love with it and I'd love to try out the shade 'Soft Spoken' next.

Have you tried any of the NYX Liquid Suede Lipsticks?

Let's keep in touch
