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.
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.
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.
