NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks (And Whipped Sneak Peek!)

Hi everyone!
I wanted to do a little blog post to accompany my video on new products from NYX. There are so many makeup-related topics that work really well when shared in video form... but when we're dealing with a full line of lip colors, I think pictures are best for allowing you to compare the colors side-by-side. NYX sent me the full line of Liquid Suedes- as you can see, there are 12 total shades. As I mentioned in the video, each shade has its own unique personality! Some are neutral, some are super bright, and some are just really "out there" :)

You can check out my video for more of an overall review of these, but in a nutshell, they're creamy matte lip colors that you apply with a wand applicator. These shades are quite pigmented-- in the pictures, you're seeing how they look with just one layer all over my lips. If you notice any shine on any of these- it's probably because I was quickly applying these to the lips and didn't allow it to fully dry. The flat nature of the wand applicator allows for a really precise application, which I love. Something important to note about the formula... it doesn't COMPLETELY dry on the lips, unlike certain other liquid lipsticks. You'll notice a bit of a tacky feel... it's not uncomfortable like a sticky gloss might feel, but you can definitely sense it when you press your lips together. 
These lip colors will transfer off onto a cup or skin... but only partially. I still notice a great deal of remaining color on my lips, but I just wanted you to see that they're not transfer-resistant. And if you happen to be eating anything that might be the slightest bit moist- things can get a little messy. It almost re-liquifies the product slightly. All in all, I enjoy the lightweight, velvety texture of these products. The application is easy, and I love the finished look. The reds in this collection are some of my favorites, especially Kitten Heels. It's just the perfect pure red! But just keep in mind that these lip colors- particularly the bold ones- may require some maintenance if you're doing a lot of talking, eating or drinking. 

NYX Whipped Lip & Cheek Souffle 
The other line of colorful goodies that I mentioned in the video are the NYX Whipped Lip & Cheek Souffle. These are so new, they're not even available at the time I'm writing this post. These feel INCREDIBLY light and creamy. While the swatches below look shiny- they actually do dry a little on the lips and cheeks (my photo was taken right after they were applied). They end up having a somewhat velvety feel - they're just so unique. They're easy to blend onto the cheeks with fingers or a brush. I haven't had any staying power problems on the cheeks, and the staying power on the lips is better with the brighter/deeper colors. I do plan to do a full review with more explanations, because frankly, I haven't gotten to experiment with these a whole lot so far.

Swatches are in the same order as the products shown above. Again, this was after they were freshly swatted and this creamy formula does dry slightly. There might be the slightest hint of shine, but would probably be best described as a semi-matte finish. I'll make sure to show these on my lips in a future review- coming soon!
