NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in shade Tea & Cookies Review & Swatch | Lipstick Monday!

It has been a very exciting week for me!  NYX has officially landed in Boots stores on the British high street! For those that don’t know, NYX offer niche products at competitively low prices while still being of an excellent quality.  I was a little pushed for time so had to glance over the counter quickly so my first purchase was this little beauty.  The NYX Liquid Suede Lipstick in Tea & Cookies. Being a big Kat Von D liquid lipstick fan, this product had high standards to meet.  So, how did it compare?  ….. Very well indeed!

The packaging is rather basic, and nothing special but does the job nonetheless! The applicator is soft and the product glides onto the lips effortlessly.  Tea & Cookies is a soft beige pink that is just the right amount of pink to stop it being too pale for my colouring.  The long narrow applicator makes applying to the contour of my lips easy.  The matte lipstick was not too drying, and did not settle into the lines on my lips anymore than what was expected with a matte liquid lipstick.

The lipstick unfortunately did not last very long, and transferred easily on my tea cup. It lost the colour a little in the fullest part of my lip, migrating slowly towards my lip line after a few hours, but that said in this natural shade I found this was not overly noticeable and priced at £6.50, I really don’t think you can ask for more!

I would love to hear from you if you too have recently discovered NYX has set up home in your local Boots store! Have you made any purchases?!

NYX Matte Lipstick Tea Rose Review – Lipstick Monday!

NYX Matte Lipstick Tea Rose Review

I’m loving Monday’s at the moment, purely because I get to share with you all a lipstick that has cheered me up during the day. Today I was in the mood for a cool toned rose colour and NYX Tea Rose in a matte formula ticked all the right boxes!

I love NYX lipsticks.  They are wonderfully pigmented and glide on effortlessly.  They are also excellent value for money at £8.00, and come in a wide range of colours.

I love the transparent packaging that gives away the colour inside.  Sometimes it’s the small things that make all the difference!

NYX Matte Lipstick Tea Rose Review Swatch

As you can see from the swatches above, the colour is beautifully opaque.  I find it super flattering on my pale skin tone and it brings out the green in my eyes.  It is a matte lipstick but is not drying.  I would say if you like a very matte colour then this is not the lipstick for you.  It has a slight sheen to it but this does not bother me, in fact I quite like it! This is a beautiful lipstick for Autumn as it brightens up my complexion and adds a lovely touch of colour without looking too full on.  It lasted for a good few hours, but did leave the tell tale lipstick marks on my coffee cup! I am still impressed with the overall finish of the product and can’t wait to buy a few more colours.

NYX Matte Lipstick Tea Rose

So there we have it, a beautiful rose pink lipstick that offers not only excellent value but one that applies smoothly and lasts for a pretty respectable 3-4 hours.

Can you recommend another NYX colour for me to try? I would love to hear your suggestions!
