NYX Cosmetics Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick – Pink Lust Review and Swatches
NYX has been one of the brands I always wanted to try since I started using makeup, but back in the years, the brand was not easily available in India, even if available, there were not many shade options to choose from. But now days, NYX is easily available in Sephora India and is easy to get on Nykaa too. I have many products from the brand and the one I’ll be taking about today is one of their Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks. I wanted to get all of them but some of the colours in the range are not as per my taste, so I tried to play safe by starting my collection with the colour Pink Lust.
These lipsticks from NYX come in 16 colour options (at least in India) and are claimed to be waterproof. As the name of the product states, they are cream lipsticks with a matte finish. Every brand has their own version of liquid lipsticks which have a matte finish and a long staying power, but majority of the liquid lipsticks are drying. These liquid suede cream lipsticks from NYX win at this. These lipsticks work like liquid lipsticks by giving a matte finish and long staying power, but they are not drying at all. They are super light weight and non transferable too.
Price: Rs 850 for 4 ml
Pink Lust is a bright Pink coloured lipstick which can easily spice up any boring outfit. It gives instant brightness to the face making it seem like you have put on efforts while doing your makeup. Its a shade which will suit majority skin tones. It neither makes you look lifeless nor makes the face too bright, but the colour can be a bit too much if applied on daily basis to work.
The colour Pink Lust is super pigmented and gives an opaque finish in just a single swipe. Once dried, the formula dries matte, but is still very comfortable to wear. Tough not necessarily important, I prefer to use a lip scrub and lip balm before applying the lipstick. This helps in making the lips smoother and moisturised for a longer period of time. Pink Lust is also called Passion Rose (as written on the product). When first applied the colour comes out completely different on the lips as compared to what is assumed through the packaging, but once dried, it does match the tube shade.
The applicator provided with the lipstick is a flat shaped sponge, which makes it easy to apply the colour. Excess colour can be tapped off the applicator without much difficulty.
Pink Lust has an excellent staying power. The colour stays put easily for 6-7 hours without much fading. Fading mainly stats after a meal. Without the meal, the lip colour stays intact until you actually want to remove it. After a period of 2-3 hours, the colour starts to settle into the fine lines of the lips and makes every flaw on the lips visible, this can be improved by exfoliating the lips and applying a suitable lip balm/ primer prior to applying the lip colour.
Overall for me, I loved the way the colour looks on me and the way the formula feels on my lips. Yes it is a bit pricey, but for me it is worth the price.
