NYX Liquid Suedes. Review and Swatches


The liquid lipstick trend isn't going anywhere and like any respectable beauty junkie I am a huge fan of this trend and am excited to see brands step up their game and come up with better formulas and a wider variety of colors. NYX has released its Liquid Suede range while ago, the brand is pretty accessible to most of us, here in Canada we've seen it pop up and establish itself in most drugstores across the country which makes me happy and excited to see a brand known for bold colors and great products at reasonable prices available to all.
I've only gotten my hands on the range Liquid Suedes late this summer and had a fair chance to play with them and put them to the test, so here's my experience with the liquid lipsticks.
The formula is relatively thin and moussey, the applicator is pretty great making it easy to line and fill in lips and get reasonably clean lines without having to reach for a pencil or brush. The formula is very comfortable on the lips and dries down to a comfortable matte finish quite fast. Most colors had decent pigmentation, one to two swipes proved more than enough to get full opacity. I did notice the lighter colors tended to look almost chalky once dried but this never bothered me nor did I find it took away from the color or overall effect. The formula were nicely across the board, I did not notice major feathering with any of the colors but the product does transfer quite easily and almost disappears completely when drinking and especially when eating. This is not a long wearing product by any means but it does layer nicely making touch ups relatively easy. I do recommend you bring along the lipstick you are wearing, it's pretty much guaranteed you'll need to touch up through the day which is the one downside of this formula.
My favourite part about this range has to be the incredible color variety. NYX is known for bold colors and they delivered with this release. The range features a wide variety of trendy maroons and browns, bold colors and my personal favourite, the stunning Jet Set, a deep blue that makes my heart flutter every time I put it on.
All in all, the formula is good has enough good points that I can overlook the poor longevity and wear. The colors are stunning, apply well and look great once on so carrying the tube of lipstick around for occasional touch ups is a small price to pay for a show stopping, comfortable lip.

Pur Lip Lure Hydrating Lip Laquer in Fancy Review and Swatches


Pur Lip Lure Hydrating Lip Laquer has been a new favourite lip product of mine these past weeks. The formula is quite incredible, lightweight yet incredibly pigmented, long wearing yet comfortable and hydrating. I am even digging the "flocked showerhead " applicator which ensures the color gets nice and evenly distributed without having me reach out for a lip brush. I have the lipstick in Fancy a stunning mauvey brown that looks rich and creamy with a hint of glossiness when applied to the lips.
