NYX Suede Matte Lipstick ($7.99) is a new soft, velvety matte lipstick that launched for Summer 2018 in 12 shades and it’s beautiful! I really want to love it but…
It so didn’t work out for me!
After reading this review, which isn’t great, I urge you to go out there and try NYX Suede Matte Lipstick for yourself. It’s a formula you’re either going to adore and love using or you might fall into the same category as me, you might love the formula but you simply can’t wear it.
More on this dilemma in a bit here’s some details on Suede Matte Lipstick.
This probably one of my favorite NYX Lipsticks to date. Like the new Slip Tease Lip Lacquer they spent some extra time and attention with the packaging. The lipstick arrives in a solid black matte case with a heart clasp. It’s really a pretty presentation for the lipstick and at least I’m not getting that “Oh god NYX put out another lipstick” vibe with this packaging and it does stand apart from other lipsticks in their collection so I’m not feeling like here are a hundred lipsticks all with different names that look exactly the same. I appreciate the subtle cuteness of the packaging and felt like it set the product apart from the other twenty different lipsticks the brand offers. One thing that bothered me was it had a bar code label that was messy to remove and completely ruined the packaging for me. Now I have a sticky barrel because I couldn’t get the label off easily 🙁
$8 bucks gets you 0.12 oz of product and even cheaper if you happen to head into a BOGO offer at Ulta or the local drugstore. It is made in China.
I’m giving this a really good review even though it failed to work for me. The formula is divine. It’s one of the more comfortable, lightweight matte lipsticks I’ve had the pleasure of using. It glides on with a velvety, powdery texture that’s weightless and wears comfortably on my dry lips. It’s just so smooth and buttery. I think we all commonly associate matte with dryness but this formula feels very pleasant on my lips. The pigment is great! Opaque on a single swipe. I detected a very light vanilla scent but it didn’t really translate during application and I didn’t notice any flavor.
They do advertise this as a powder matte and that’s pretty much what the formula evokes. It almost feels like a lip powder and adheres to lips as such. This is actually the problem for me as it appears less than smooth and not due to dryness either. It’s just that the color clings to my natural lip lines and ages my lips. You can definitely add in a lip primer or a balm to get a smoother finish but I find it disappointing I had to do so as it would be nice to be able to just slick it on and go you know?
Sigh! I wish it worked for me. It’s textured so beautifully!
What a shame!
I still urge you to try it for yourself as it might just work a treat for you!
Anyone try these yet?

Where to buy
NYX Suede Matte Lipstick is available in 12 permanent shades and 0.12 oz in size and $7.99 in price. This formula is a lightweight powder matte that applies very smoothly on lips with a lightly hydrating feel and a weightless texture. I thought the application was super and the texture, pigment, and formula quite lovely but sadly, it color did fall into my natural lip lines which resulted in making my lips look drier and old.
- Smooth, easy glide on lips.
- Delightfully lightweight and comfortable to wear.
- Not drying at all, weightless, and feels lightly hydrating.
- Excellent pigment!
- Color may fall into natural lip lines resulting in an aged and dry look.
- Not ideal for aging lips.
- Bar code label was difficult to remove and left the barrel sticky!
I think this will look amazing on anyone who has fairly smooth lips. It’s a formula you really have to try for yourself in my opinion as your millage may vary depending how smooth your lips are. In my case, it fell into my natural lip lines but I think the wear will depend on your lips!
