NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick ($7) are a new vibrantly pigmented matte finish liquid lipstick with a waterproof formula.
Liquid lipsticks, particularly matte ones, are trending for Fall! We’re seeing formulas like this from a variety of brands including Estee Lauder, the Balm, and many others but NYX does win the budget friendly award with their seven dollar formula.
I was excited and a little scared of the new NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks because I’m not really a super fan of matte lipsticks as I tend to have drier lips. These do have moisturizing blend of olive and avocado oil as well as glycerin which made me a little less scared.
Each NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick comes housed in a chunky little barrel tube with an attached sponge applicator that houses 0.13 oz of product. The formula is very thin and very lightweight which makes it incredibly comfortable to wear! Many liquid lipsticks are pretty thick but this does run thinner and for me that translates as comfortable and weightless on my lips.

These are incredibly pigmented and vibrant as promised but sadly they apply very, very streaky so you have to go over the line a few times for a smooth, even finish. Personally I used my finger to smooth out the color so it looked good because right out of the tube, applying with the applicator, you’ll get a really uneven, patchy finish. The drying time is really long so it can take about five or so minutes for color to set and even after that set time they still transfer easily when eating or drinking. The good news is during the wear they didn’t feel dry or uncomfortable. I got about five hours of wear from the formula but during that time I either ended up with the product migrating and feathering OR having issues with it flaking and cracking. I didn’t notice any flavor or fragrance.

All in all NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick were incredibly budget friendly but the formula just wasn’t as great as I had hoped for. The thinner consistency was very pleasant to wear but the streaky application and migration issues didn’t really make me a lover of these.
