A lot of my posts have been about recent lipstick finds, and this is certainly no exemption :) To be honest, I used to have a very neutral feeling towards Nyx itself. I've tried the soft matte lip creams before, and I didn't really love those for quite a few reasons. However, there is a part of me that really wants to try out the other products and see if some would fortunately be part of my beauty favourites.
The first time I encountered the Nyx Liquid Suede was through online when I was just randomly scrolling through my Facebook Feed, and saw a post featuring the different swatches of this lipstick line. Then and there, I told myself that I would want to try out at least one lipstick from that line, ifever it would be available here in the country. And just last week, the lipstick gods have paved the way for me to buy this item! Sadly, it wasn't part of the sale even if it was lipstick festival during that time in SM Beauty Store, but I still had this strong urge to buy one and I gave in to that haha. I decided to buy the Nyx Liquid Suede in 07 or Sandstorm.
I'm glad that I decided to give this a try because it is so much better than the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams, in my opinion. I actually asked the saleslady about the difference between the soft matte line and the liquid suede line, but she just told me that they're pretty much the same. However, now that I've tried it, I can say that well aside from the fact that it is bigger, it also doesn't have that strong scent. Lipstick scents are deal breakers for me. There are drugstore lipsticks that have a scent, but it would be fine with me as long as it wouldn't be overpowering. Other than that, when it comes to the issue of dryness, I have tried a few liquid lipsticks from other brands before, but it would really be THAT DRYING. In this case, it sets really matte, but I don't find it to be Sahara dessert levels of drying, pretty much tolerable for someone like me who has dry lips but loves matte lipsticks.
Overall, I'm really glad that I bought this lipstick. It's something that I could wear for times wherein I don't want my lipstick to be too loud. I generally don't like to wear nude lipsticks, but I do see myself wearing this shade few times a month maybe hihi. But, definitely, this is something worthy to try and see if it could be part of your kikay kit! :)
