Guest review by Papri Ganguly  (Skin type: Combination to oily, Skin tone: Fair)

I think you guys already know that I am a big lipstick addict, especially lip creams. As soon as I heard that NYX launched in India through Nykaa, I rushed to buy their soft matte lip creams. But all the lip creams went out of stock within minutes!! It was then that their newly added liquid suede cream lipsticks drew my attention. NYX liquid suede cream lipsticks are famous for their vivid and unusual color range. I have the shade Soft Spoken which is a dupe for “Kat Von D – Lolita“!

Packaging: The packaging of NYX liquid suede cream lipsticks is very similar to their soft matte lip creams but these are bigger in size.  It comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a screw up open black cap. It has a long and precise doe foot applicator inside and the bottle carries all the relevant information as well.



Shade: Soft spoken is a beautiful earthy brown with a hint of peach in it. The color is the exact dupe for Kat Von D Lolita which I think is quite popular in the beauty /blogger world. The most gorgeous nude shade I have ever come across.

Pigmentation and texture: Highly pigmented, single swipe is sufficient. Glides like a dream and covers my pigmented lips in one application, so the opacity is excellent. Texture is similar to soft matte lip creams but I feel it is more on the creamier side. When applied it gives a very satin velvety finish but after 4-5 seconds or so it settles down to a completely matte finish. Yes, it dries out the lips and settles into lip lines if not moisturized properly, so I would highly suggest exfoliating and applying a lip balm underneath.




Staying power and color payoff: It stays on forever, literally intact on my lips for more than 9 hours with snacks and drinks in between. It does survive a full meal with a little fading in the center. The pigment can only be removed by makeup remover.  When it comes to color pay off, it gives an amazing color payoff right from the first swipe. After 8-9 hours or so or after eating anything oily, it leaves behind a stain on the lips.


  • Breath-taking shade.
  • Amazing color payoff.
  • Buttery soft formula.
  • Long lasting.
  • Gives gorgeous powdery matte finish.
  • Chic and sturdy packaging.
  • Good quality applicator makes application easy and precise.


  • Expensive
  • Drying on the lips, exfoliation and moisturization are a must before putting it on.


Verdict : A

Price : 850 for 4 ml.

Recommendation : I know it is a bit pricey but the shade is so gorgeous, it makes it worth buying. I don’t know about the texture and formula of KVD’s Lolita but the color is exactly same. NYX Liquid Suede has a creamy texture, excellent opacity and matte finish. I’d say it is a good investment for a lipstick lover’s vanity.

I am a big fan of NYX lip creams. I am very fond of earthy browns + peach shades. They make perfect nude.
Wish it was little cheaper.

yes…it’s price tag hurts :P , but the color and quality really worth the money.
