Recently I purchased the NYX Liquid Suede in colour 03, Cherry Skies for only £7 from Boots. I was looking for a lipstick that was more of a darker red seeing as a lot of my lipsticks are more of a dark purple/red. I headed straight for NYX as they’re usually my go to when I’m skint plus they’re cruelty free!
Before applying I used my M.A.C burgundy lip pencil (I bought this last year and even though I try to only buy cruelty free makeup now I want to use up the makeup I previously bought to not waste money).
As you can see my top lip is next to non-existent so I always have to use a lip pencil so the lipstick doesn’t go everywhere. Although it’s a big trend to draw bigger lips I would rather not do that only because I’m a mess and usually my lipstick smudges within five minutes of wearing it. When I went to NYC last Christmas I drew on a slightly bigger upper lip for a day and it was a nightmare because I had to keep reapplying and I ended up looking like a clown by the end of the day.
I found when applying this cream lipstick a lot of liquid came off and made me panic cause it went everywhere. This probably isn’t an issue if you actually have lips. It dries very quickly and I loved the colour, it was exactly what I was looking for. I would say to steer clear of this product if you have dry lips because it does have quite a matte finish.
Overall, I would buy this product again and I am really glad I bought it! 😁
