NYX Cosmetics Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick Swatches

The newest liquid lipstick to hit the market are the NYX Cosmetics Liquid Suede Cream lipsticks, (.13 fl oz / $6.99).  They are in the familiar lipgloss type tube with a doe foot applicator.  I picked up a few at Ulta to check out and have those swatches for you today.

From left to right, I have:   Tea and Cookies, Sandstorm, Pink Lust, Soft-Spoken and Life's A Beach.  I've swatched them below in the same order.

review, Ulta, liquid lipstick

When I tried these on for lip swatches, at first I was surprised.  They remain tacky feeling on the lips for as long as five minutes.  Taking a sip of my water, I did have just the faintest hint of color transfer.  Once the colors set up, however, they will last well throughout the day.  They have a comfortable feel on the lips and even as I ate and drank, I didn't feel I needed to refresh afterwards.  The formula is definitely long wearing, even for a liquid lipstick.  The finish is matte in the colors I tried.

I've swatched them on the lips in the same order.  First is Tea & Cookies, a nice soft natural pink.

This pink is really easy to wear and one you'll feel comfortable mucking around in on any given day.

The next color is Sandstorm, a neutral toned nude of medium depth

liquid lipstick, review

In the middle of my first photo is Pink Lust, a vibrant hot pink.  It glows, it's so bright.


The darker nude is Soft-Spoken.  It is slightly darker and redder than Sandstorm, but not by a lot.  On my pale lips, the colors are really close.


The last color I have is the bright orange Life's A Beach.  This is a neon orange, about the color of a traffic cone on me.  It's so bright that my camera couldn't really handle the difference between it and my skintone.


For about the last year or so, for me personally,  I prefer a more natural type of coral like Anastasia Beverly Hills Sorbet liquid lipstick.

The NYX Cosmetics Liquid Suede lipsticks can be found on the NYX Cosmetics website, as well as Ulta online and in stores.  The selection of colors is limited at this point, but they're new, so maybe more colors will come in the future.  These liquid lipsticks are easy to apply, cover without being splotchy and can be layered, if you wish.

Have you tried the Liquid Suedes yet?  What are your favorite liquid lipsticks?

December Ipsy Bag! Check It Out!!!

I always plan to show you my Ipsy Bag and I just haven't gotten it done at all this year...UNTIL NOW!!!  I have received some awesome items in the bags over the last year...including NYX blush, lipsticks, eyeshadows...Be A Bombshell blush...mind you, these are all full sized items...Sation nail polish, Zoya nail polish....AND MORE....

Here is the December 2013 Ipsy bag that I received.  I'm leaving my picture full sized so that you can drool as much as possible over the items.

Ipsy bag, eyelashes, eyeshadow, blush, nailpolish, lipgloss

(Originally posted via Instagram)

The sides of my picture were cut off in the Instagram photo to fit IG better.  But here are some things that you need to know:  A year's subscription to Ipsy is only $110.   To purchase an individual bag is just $10, so there's a $10 savings with the yearly price....did I mention you are receiving full sized items in each bag?

First, there is the bag.  This one is pretty nice.  Most bags are bout 5" x 7".  Love the shiny black textured outside and the hot pink inside.  Love!!!

The lipstick I received is NYX Cosmetics in the color Cream, (#607).  It's a frosted nude beige.  I love everything NYX.  I started buying them many years ago on trips to Hawaii where Longs Drugs was the only place I could find the brand.  I loaded up on pigments and eyeshadows.....bringing it to present day, I'm now able to buy a limited amount of their items at Fred Meyer.  Our two local Targets just received the brand this month but they seem to have trouble re-stocking NYX and Pixi.  It'  Anyway, when I am out of state, I purchase from the full line of NYX at Ulta and one of my favorite places to shop for NYX online is Cherry Couture.  They often have fantastic sales.  You should definitely check them out.  Don't forget to shop the brand's own website NYX  Sign up for their email and receive 25% off your first order.

I met with the NYX team at Cosmoprof North America this past summer and the one before and I'm telling you the products that were introduced this year are just killer and wait until you see what's coming up in the spring.  I'll be writing that up soon to let you know what I've discovered.

Lastly, about the lipstick, in the end cap is a matching lipgloss.  NYX Cosmetics truly has great products at great prices and I've received many awesome NYX items in my Ipsy bags.   Happy, happy, happy. You are also able to purchase these items and more from the brands on the Ipsy website.  Each bag contains a postcard featuring the brands of the month and information about the special discounts which often come  from many of them.

Be A Bombshell is a brand I hadn't experienced or heard of until Ipsy.  At this point, I've received a many different types of items from them and I've enjoyed them all.  It's a good brand and I've been impressed with the quality.  This month's bag includes The One Stick.  My color is Girl Crush, a light pink with a hint of golden shimmer, which is absolutely perfect for me.  I think I'd prefer this on my lips rather than cheeks just because I personally am not fond of cream cheek color.  However, this color intrigues me and I'm going to give it a try.  It looks beautiful and would be great for a classic wintery etherial look.  Use it anywhere you like for a wisp of color.  Layer it to make more of a statement, if you like.

Next is NickaK NY nailpolish in the color NY112, a taupe toned milk chocolate color. This goes well with the NYX round lipstick Cream.  I've also met with the Nicka K team at CosmoprofNA last summer and had a great visit.  It wasn't quite that way this last July unfortunately but I do love this nail polish.  She's a beauty!

Let's talk Pop Beauty! I was thrilled to find a Bright Up Your Life eyeshadow trio in my bag.  Mine is called Smokin' Hot and is perfect for this time of year, or anytime really.  It contains three shades of grey, from light to dark, with varying amounts of shimmer from heavy to slight.  You can also find Pop Beauty at Ulta and on Ipsy.

The last item in my already stuffed Ipsy bag is Ardell Natural Lashes, number 120 Demi, in the color black.  These are light and wispy and come with glue for application.   You can find these at virtually any store.  I usually buy mine at Sally's or at Fred Meyer when they do a buy one, get one 1/2 off sale; which is currently running thru December 21st, if you live in the Pacific Northwest.

There you have it:  Full sized items for just $10 a month!!!  Isn't it amazing?  And if you sign up for a year, you basically get one month free!!!  A year is just $110!!  WORTH IT!!!  If you use my Ipsy link, I will receive a few points and eventually will be able to use them toward a purchase.  Check out what's on their website and see if you might be interested.  This is the first time I've blogged my Ipsy bag, (shame on me but it's really been a rough year).  I have been completely satisfied with every bag I've received since I re-joined last March.

And the final note for this blog post that I have to tell you:  Ipsy has a series of questions that you can answer and the bags are catered to your preferences.  Holy great idea, Batman!!!  And you can change those preferences any time that you want!

Are you an Ipsy subscriber?  Which of the monthly sample services do you subscribe to?

NYX Cosmetics, Sex Bomb, Eyeshadow Palette, femme fatale, Cosmoprof North America

Sex Bomb, Sex Bomb, you're my Sex Bomb....that's the Tom Jones version but I love the NYX Cosmetics version even more. I predict a very quick sell-thru once this hits the shelves. And I want it bad, so if I have to fight you in my neck brace, I will. Or not, because I'd lose. But I want this bad.

NYX Cosmetics, Their Booth At Cosmoprof 2012 And The Glam Collection!

NYX Store Display
There are so many exciting things coming from NYX Cosmetics. This summer, I had an appointment with Tonie at the NYX Cosmetics booth at Cosmoprof North America 2012. We talked about the brand and the new release of the Glam Collection. Oooooh, the Glam Collection is cool, but we'll talk about that in a minute.

My first introduction to NYX was thru their loose pigment eyeshadows. Since NYX isn't sold in my state, (c'mon Fred Meyer, I'm counting on you to bring it in!), I hunted for these on a trip out of state, bagged my prey, and found them quite comparable to Mac pigments but at a far less toll on my wallet. So many beautiful colors!!

NYX loose shadow

I've got quite a few of their shadows, which offer superb pigmentation at a very fair price.


I've taken some other pictures of the Cosmoprof booth to show my peeps in Alaska who may not have seen a variety of NYX products. (Incidentally, NYX is pronounced "nix" and is named after the ancient Greek goddess who rules the night.) There is everything in the NYX Cosmetics line...lipsticks, cream shadows, blushes, glosses, waterproof eyeliners and more.

NYX Roll On Shimmers

NYX Lipstick

NYX Cosmetics are sold domestically as well as internationally. They have received many different awards for their highly pigmented formulas. The items range from trendy to classic, seasonal to innovative. Read on and you'll see.

NYX Cosmetics can proudly display the Cruelty-Free logo, ensuring the consumer that the products are never tested on animals.

One of the newest most innovative products introduced at Cosmoprof is The Curve Liner by NYX. It is an ergonomic water resistant non-smearing liquid eyeliner. This is destined to be a life changing liner. It comes in black and holds .31 oz of product. The retail price is $15.00.

I love to look at the back of the box. Besides telling you all about the liner, my little sense of humor sees it telling me no skipping and no running with eyeliner in hand, lol. Look at the bottom of the box. I want a tshirt that says "Skips with liquid eyeliner" or something like that, hahaha.

The liner is very comfortable to hold and with the way the brush is, you can make a super thin line or a really bold one.

I'm so excited about the Glam Collection. It includes, 22 new eyeshadows, 11 shades of Glam Lip Gloss Aqua Luxe, 12 shades of Glam Lipstick Aqua Luxe, 9 new Aqua Luxe Glam's going to be some shimmering fun!! I have a few samples that were provided by the company and I'm going to show you sneak peeks with full reviews later as this is already a long post. But I really really want you to see what's coming from NYX and how beautiful these products are. Ok, super quick overview:

Glam Lipstick Aqua Luxe, retail price $6.00. Left to right are Glory and Aurora. Glory is a shimmering rosey pink and Aurora is a shimmering nude gold. Both have multi-colored sparkles.

NYX Glam Lipstick

There is no scent or particular flavor to these lipsticks which apply like a dream. They feel like velvet going on and are lightweight in application. Sophisticated shimmer in a truly luxe feeling lipstick.

Glam Lip Gloss Aqua Luxe, retail price $6.00. The light pink gloss is High Society. It has pink, gold and opal colored shimmers. The golden gloss is called VIP, a golden beige with multi-colored glitters. The glosses aren't sticky but have more of a lip balm type of feel. The sparkles lend themselves to good length of wear. These glosses are an awesome compliment to the lipsticks. I've been wearing them together often.

NYX Glam Gloss Aqua Luxe

The wand in the glosses is like a velvety paddle type. I think it's supposed to be straight but I got one that was straight and one that is bent. Either works as well as the other actually.

Look at all the color in these glosses!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NYX Glam Gloss swatches

Glam Liner Aqua Luxe, retail price $5.50. These are waterproof!!! And I mean the real kind of waterproof, not the fakey kind that people put the label on to sell product. These really last. The teal color is Glam Lagoon, a very shimmering bright turquoise. The olive is a darkened olive with golden sparkle and is called Glam Golden.

NYX Aqua Liners

There is also a new finishing powder from NYX. It's HD Studio Finishing Powder made of 100% pure minerals. It looks white but is translucent. Wear it over makeup to set it, or wear it alone for a radiant look to your skin as it absorbes oil that you don't want. There is .21 oz of product in the jar and it retails for $10.00. I have a picture of it on my hand, but I'm not sure it shows the effect well, so I'm going to try some half/half face pictures, if they don't scare me to death. Until then...this is how the product looks:

And lastly, I want to give you some looks at the new palettes that NYX is bringing out. They are beautiful!!! Either could easily be a 'vacation in a palette'. Swatches and evaluation coming in the future, but for now, I hope you appreciate the beauty of these palettes. The Be Free set has a MSRP of $20, which is a steal!!! The Bohemian Chic set has an MSRP of $18...also a steal. Both sets have a fully mirrored top. FULL MIRROR!!

It's been a really long post but I can't wait to tell you all about the palettes once I've properly evaluated and swatched them. (Products provided by PR for consideration.) Have you used NYX yet? Do you have a love, disdain, or indifferent attitude toward such long posts? Which NYX product would you like to see explored in depth first? Thanks for hanging in and I hope you enjoyed all the photos.
