Once in a while I’ll come across a lip product that simply doesn’t come off of my lips for weeks and this NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Sandstorm is just that. Jess and I stumbled across the NYX collections when we made our random Shopper’s trip a few weeks ago and the instant I swatched this lip colour, I knew I wanted it. I was lucky enough to pick up the final one at the store but if you really want it, just order it online from NYX website.

Sandstorm is definitely my favourite brown nude at the moment (I can’t help but think that I’ve been a little influenced by Kylie Jenner in terms of my colour choices). I love how these lip colours dry to a matte to semi-matte finish. Though the drying time is quite long, around 3 minutes before fully dry, it is very lightweight and applies without any major issues for me. (Note: the long drying time may cause transfer to the teeth) The texture is very smooth and creamy allowing a smooth application. I do still recommend a lipliner just to make sure that the colour stays in place.

I love the staying power of this liquid lipstick because I’ve worn it all day and won’t need to reapply a new coat for 5-7 hours. It’s great considering that the colour doesn’t stain my lips. Because the ingredients include glycerin, olive oil and avocado, it keeps my lips slightly moisturized.

This specific colour is also stunning. It’s honestly the perfect brown nude for everyday wear. For around $10.00 CAD a piece, I’m really considering picking up more colours.

  • This colour looks lovely on you! I have never tried the Suede lipsticks from NYX but I need to! I have a bunch of the NYX butter lip glosses and I LOVE them. They are my go-to lip glosses!

    • I’m definitely looking to get more of the Suede lipsticks, especially those funkier colours! :) I never tried the butter lip glosses, but I think I need to get my hands on some now! :)
