I think we all know by now that I love the NYX liquid lipsticks especially the matte finishes and because I love them so much I’ve decided to try out one of their Liquid Suede ones in the shade Stone Fox. One of my friends loves her Liquid Suedes so that makes me feel better about this one and I’ve actually had this one for a while now but since it’s now Autumn (can we get a massive halleilghla) I think it’s the perfect time so start wearing and getting some use out of this shade!
The shade Stone Fox is a grey inside the bullet and when swatched and personally I think that on my lips it still looks grey but everyone thats seen me wearing it has said that they’ve thought I was wearing a blue lipstick, so I’m guessing that means this lipstick has a blue undertone making your lips look whiter – which lets face it is what you want, I mean who wants yellow teeth?!
I know this liquid can be a bit daunting for some people to wear, myself included. Usually I’m brave as hell when it comes to lipstick colours but with this one I have to be in the mood and feeling a bit confident, I do think when it’s colder out I will wear it a lot more since I’ve only ever tried to wear this when it’s been sunny out. So sunny that I felt like I was melting which now looking back was obviously a bad decision.
I prefer to apply this liquid lipstick than the matte finishes because the doefoot is bigger and I just find it easier to apply and a lot quicker although it can get pretty messy if you aren’t careful! With the fact the applicator is bigger obviously the actual size of the liquid lipstick is bigger than the others, I would probably say that it’s about the size of my Kylie liquid lipsticks so hopefully this one will last a lot longer.
With it being a sudden finish it does dry and feel different on my lips than I’m normally used to, it does dry matte but it looks more velvet to the eye which is something that I really like although on my lips it does also feel quite matte but not as dry. I can’t really comment myself on the staying power since the only times I’ve worn it I removed it within an hour but seeing the one my friend wears the lasting power does seem pretty good lasting a whole day with a few touch ups here and there.
Overall I do really like this and I’m definitely going to be purchasing a few different shades of the Suede finishes! Maybe in a more neutral colour that I can wear all year long.
