Disappointing Product #1: NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick

nyxliquidsuedelip (2)

I had high hopes for the Nyx Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks. I thought it was going to be a good liquid lipstick because Nyx’s Lip products are amazing for the price point. But these were just awful. I hate for this post to be so negative, but I want to give my honest review on this product.

I picked up Vintage and Sandstorm.

Scent

The first thing that turned me off was the scent. It doesn’t smell like the Soft Matte Lip Creams or the Butter Glosses. It smells like chemicals and that “old lipstick” scent. I couldn’t stand the smell as I’m putting it on that I felt like I’m putting straight up paint on my lips.

Texture

The label didn’t promise a matte finish but it dried down to a matte finish after a few minutes of application. When you smack your lips together, a matte lipstick is supposed to be comfortable and not stick together. That wasn’t the case for this one. When I pressed my lips together, it kept sticking to each other. I tried to wait 2 hours hoping it would dry down. But no. It felt like I put on double-sided tape between my lips.

When I see the word “Suede” I thought it would be something hydrating and comfortable. Unfortunately, it was all the opposite.

I wouldn’t repurchase it and wouldn’t recommend it either.

I do recommend their Matte Lipstick, Butter Gloss, Soft Matte Lip Cream, and their Lip Pencils. They are amazing! I love Nyx products and was so happy that they finally hit the shelves at my Shoppers Drug Mart. They have so many good products, but I would suggest you pass on this one.

 

Have you guys tried this product? What are your thoughts?

Thanks for reading!

Favorite Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayons (Lip Swatches + Review)

DSC_1040

I want to share with you guys my favorite colours from the Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon collection. DSC_1028

As many of you know, all of Bite Beauty’s products are good enough to eat and made with gluten-free, food-grade ingredients and are free of¬†polybutenes, sulfates, and petroleum byproducts.

The Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayons are highly pigmented, very moisturizing and comfortable even if it’s matte. According to Sephora’s website, “the secret is the moisture-locking power of orange peel wax along with the antioxidant properties of resveratrol.”

Because of the matte/creamy consistency, it is long wearing but not drying. It does have a slight sheen when first applied but it dries down to a matte finish throughout the day.

It has a citrus-y vanilla scent. If you are someone who’s sensitive about scents on lip products you don’t need to worry because the scent almost completely disappears when the lip color sets.

These are my most reached for colours from the collection:
