Simply Lippy Challenge Day 169 | NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Shade 02, Life’s A Beach

Today I opted to wear one of NYX’s liquid suede lipsticks in a fabulously bright coral pink shade, Life’s A Beach.

I first tried one of these lipsticks at the beginning of my challenge, and although I loved the shade, I wasn’t 100% sure of the formula which is quite wet and does take a little time to dry in because of that.

But, when I saw it in this shade a few weeks back, I couldn’t resist buying it as it’s the perfect Summer lippy for a sunny day and amazing on a gorgeous day like today.

When I first applied it, I absolutely loved the brightness of the colour, and after a few layers, was left with a nice opaque, matte finish. But after about ten minutes of wearing, the problem started…

Once it had dried in, after a few minutes I found that it began to crack, and wasn’t at all like the soft creamy matte finish I remembered from the last time I wore one of these. It began to flake off patches because of the cracking which just ruined the impact of the colour completely.

Needless to say, I was so disappointed and ended up having to put lip balm on over it to blend it in and give my lips some moisture after all the cracking which really wasn’t ideal.

I don’t know if it was a bad batch or whether I just didn’t notice it last time because it was a darker shade, but overall this was a very disappointing wear today even though I absolutely adore the colour.

Sorcha 💋
