Recently I’ve found myself drawn to wearing more lipstick. I wear makeup so rarely when not modeling, an item has to either feel great or look amazing in order for me to wear it daily. Not to mention lipstick was always one of my least favorite accents to put on. And not because I don’t like how it looks, but because I hate that it fades. Or worse, the second you put it on you suddenly realize your starving and immediately need to eat something, smearing the newly applied color!
Liquid Suede Matte Lipstick
While I’m fond of many items in the NYX brand, their liquid suede matte lipstick has quickly become one of my favorite things to wear. I currently rotate between two colors: a light brown called “Soft-Spoken”, and a bold red called “Kitten Heels”.
Personally, I prefer to save the red for special events or very bold makeup looks. The lighter shade however is more diverse and works for casual or glamorous looks and everything in between.
Both of these colors bring out the tones in my skin, and the lipstick stays well for extended amounts of time. That being said, I have found that in comparison, the lighter shade doesn’t transfer as much as the red does. But a little blotting can do wonders for a red lip.
Leaving a good impression
The liquid suede lipstick line applies smoothly, and while my lips have felt dried out with other lipsticks, this NYX line goes on smooth and stays smooth.
I was so impressed, I tried a few of the other colors in this line, such as various pinks, a blue, and even black. Yet I keep coming back to these two fabulous shades. As they say, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
And also, stock up before they sell out; or did I just make that one up?
Guess I better make another trip to Ulta!
