So in last week’s post, I filled you in on my mini-haul from Boots which included the purchase of NYX Liquid Suede Lippies in Soft Spoken and Sway.
Colours: Soft Spoken and Sway.
Soft Spoken is a dark, rosy nude. It’s a perfect colour for neutral lips with a bit of colour. I love how I can wear it with any outfit. Literally – any outfit. It’s a nude!
Sway gives the wearer a bright purple pout. Wearing it reminded me of when everyone went crazy when Aishwarya Rai wore it at Cannes earlier this year. Channeling my inner Ash? One can only try.
I loved how the brush was the perfect size. The applicator size was on the longer side and perfect for applying on my lips. When the formula goes on, I was surprised to notice that it was very moisturising. Yay for lips that don’t get cracked and flaky! Haha.
I think it’s important to state that this is not a completely drying formula, but that it does last surprisingly long. Expect it not to last throughout drinks and dinner. I found that the different shades wore differently. Soft Spoken wore a lot better and longer on my lips than Sway did. Sway ended up getting a bit more cracked and flaky, which made it look ashy. I ended up needing to remove it completely toward the end of the day.
Not bad for £6.50 a lipstick! I must admit that I’m disappointed that it is not a completely drying formula, but for what it is, DAMN GURL! Not bad for a drug store score!
Thanks for reading you guys. Til next week for a makeup post!
