Fresh Faced Friday: NYX Liquid Suede Lippies (2 colours)

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. 

Initial Thoughts: 

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. 

Important facts:

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!
