NYX Liquid Suede Amethyst Review

Tomi Kay Does Beauty NYX Liquid Suede Amethyst Review

I was introduced to the NYX lip products through their Soft Matte Lip Creams. Yikes, that was a disappointment but I tend to be very forgiving, so when I went to the NYX counter I still looked at their lip products. The NYX Liquid Suede in Amethyst struck me and after swatching it, I decided to give the NYX lip line another chance. I am so glad I did because I really love the Liquid Suede in Amethyst.

The NYX Liquid Suede comes in a sturdy plastic barrel tube with a flat doe foot applicator. The applicator has a long tip which I don't mind, but I have fuller lips so that could be a factor. For me. the elongated applicator makes it easier for me to apply the lipstick.

Amethyst is a bright blue tone purple. It is just as NYX describes 'a plush and vibrant colour'. It is extremely pigmented and gives a good colour pay off with just one application. I never apply just one coat of lipstick, so I think it takes 2 to 3 coats for me to perfectly satisfied, but that is my preference and not because of the Liquid Suede. I find that it applies streak free. I recommed using a lip liner with this.

The Liquid Suede is a lightweight formula and although it dries matte, it is very non drying. It looks matte but feels velvety. It does take a while long time to dry so just be patient. This lipstick has a very creamy texture which makes it easy to apply, it glides on easily on the lips making for an enjoyable application and it is very comfortable on the lips. I find that the Liquid Suede is very moisturising and does not dry out the lips as the day goes on, which is a major turn off for me with liquid lipsticks. It does not stain the lips and it wipes off easily which is both a positive and a negative depending on how you look at it.

This Liquid Suede is quite long wearing. I wore it to for 6 hours and it did very well. It did not flake or crack on me. It is waterproof but I just hate that it is not transfer free which has to be a major con of this lippie.

As you can see, it is a very flattering colour on me, if I may say so myself.

I added a white pencil in the middle to give an ombre effect.

Bottom line, the NYX Liquid Suede is very budget friendly and they have an amazing colour range. I recommend this to all lipstick lovers. Amethyst is an amazing purple colour, I have seen it on a variety skin tones and it looks good.

Do you own any of the NYX Liquid Suede? What colours and what do you think about them?
