Most Comfortable Matte Lips with NYX Liquid Seude Cream Lipsticks
The trend of liquid lipsticks doesn’t seem to die down any soon, and I don’t want that either because I just loved the concept of liquid lipsticks.. Now, as more and more brands are coming with their own versions, I was pretty excited when got to know about our favorite drugstore brand Maybelline coming up with Maybelline Velvet Mattes but they left me a little disappointed as they are not fully matte. Nevertheless, I am happy that I got myself these NYX Liquid Seude Cream Lipsticks in Sandstorm and Teas and Cookies.

Packaging: NYX Liquid Seude Crème Lipsticks comes in a chubby round tube packaging but I loved how they fancied it up by adding a black jewel on the cap. I really liked that addition which kinds make the liquid lipsticks look exclusive. As I can see the color of the lipstick from outside I can organize them in my own way.
The lipsticks comes in a bent doe foot applicator which is pretty good to apply these on lips but I feel lining lips before hand makes the job of defining job easier.
My experience with NYX Liquid Seude Cream Lipsticks:-
Sandstorm: It is a medium dark caramel brown shade. I bought thinking a nudish brown but it is slightly darker than that. It might be a good nude for NC 45- 50 skintones but on my NC 40 it is definitely darker. Though I still think I can work with this specially for my bright eye makeup looks. Also, I like to mix it up with Tea and Cookies for more of a pinkish-brownish nude shade
Tea and Cookies: It is a soft pink shade quite similar to the NYX lip cream in Pinky Nude , just a tad bit softer and not as bright as that. It is such a gorgeous pink shade, though I might look me a little drained when worn on a bad skin day without any makeup but if I do my base and a little of eyes, the color looks pretty. Again mix it with Sandstorm to add some warmth to the shade and make it more wearable.
- Formula: NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks have a smooth slightly mousse but majorly liquid texture which spreads beautifully on lips. The formula is intensely pigmented and even the lighter shades like Tea & Cookies give full coverage to my pigmented lips. The lipstick formula feels super comfortable on lips and doesn’t feel dry, cakey or parch as some of the liquid lipsticks do. It is so light weight that I easily forget that I had these on.. love them for that <3. There is slight stickiness you can feel when lips are pressed together but otherwise it wears like nothing on lips.
- Finish: The lipstick takes some time to dry on lips so I will suggest waiting for 40-50 seconds and letting the formula dry completely. I was a little taken aback when the formula didn’t dry as matte as I was expecting but they don’t claim to be matte liquid lipsticks and looking at the finish I must say they are exactly as NYX cosmetics have named them Suede cream because it sets to satin-matte finish. Personally, I like to go for 2-3 thin coats of these liquid lipsticks because I feel that way the colors look more intense, smoother and last longer.
- Longevity: The staying power left me mesmerized because when I experienced that the finish is not completely matte I was pretty sure it is going to vanish from lips in 3-4 hours and definitely won’t survive meals… but girlzz I was all wrong. The lipstick has a strong formula which makes it last 7-8 hours easily on me and even with full meals I just saw a slight fading with the lighter colors I have. I am sure that the darker colors will hold even better. The lipsticks are not completely transfer proof until they set but once they set to matte suede finish they are pretty much transfer-proof unless you rub your lips.
I like to do ombre lips with both the shades because they compliment each other so well. Also, I didn’t find them as bad smelling as some of the other NYX Cosmetics lip products as I didn’t even noticed the scent during application.. and the best part is their price which is again on the affordable side.
Tip: Don’t press your lips together until the formula is completely dry because it will give uneven finish to lips
Recommendation: NYX Liquid Seude Cream Lipsticks have a wonderful formula which applies beautifully, feels comfortable on lips, intensely pigmented, doesn’t fill in lip lines, and lasts almost whole day even with full meals and snacks in between. I spotted some natural oils like Avocado Oil, Olive Oil in the ingredients which is amazing because dry lips will stay moisturized with these.
If you are looking for super matte liquid lipsticks.. skip these but in case you are open to soft smooth suede/satin matte finish, grab these if you can. NYX Liquid Seude Cream Lipsticks are absolutely amazing and the collection has a mix of wearable nudes, brights and some fun colors which is awesome. I love these NYX Liquid Seude Cream Lipsticks, I wish I had bought more colors, may be all of them :P. Highly recommended!
