NYX Buzzkill Liquid Suede Metallic Matte ($7.50 for 0.13 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia with cool undertones and flecks of sparkle over a satin sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly, and the thin, moussy texture made it easy to spread the product across the lips without the color pulling into lip lines. It wasn’t particularly metallic, though. This shade wore well for six and a half hours and was lightly drying.

The formula is supposed to be “plush and vibrant” with a “pigment-rich” liquid consistency and an “ultra-metallic” finish. The majority of the shades were semi-opaque to opaque in color coverage with the consistency being fairly mousse-like, so the product felt lightweight and spread well but didn’t run or get on the teeth easily. Some shades were more metallic from the get-go while others seemed to get more metallic after rubbing or patting lips slightly. They dried down to a transfer-proof finish but felt ever-so-slightly tacky at times. Based on the shades I’ve tested for wear, they are lasting between five and seven hours and are lightly drying. Between the metallic finish and the dry down, sometimes they seemed to emphasize lip lines and lip texture.

NARS Done It Again Powermatte Lip Pigment ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a deep brown with warm, red undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied fairly evenly, though there was a smidgen of color that settled into my lip lines. This shade took over an hour to look more matte (the photos were taken after a half hour) and was tackier compared to most shades in the range, though the color did not lift at least! It had a fluid consistency that was thin and spread easily across the lips. This shade wore well for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

The new formula is described as “liquefied pigments with infinite matte color saturation for lasting, weightless wear.” It’s supposed to have “full coverage in one swipe” that “dries down instantly” for “smudge-resistant, carefree wear.” The formula has a very fluid consistency that is thin, smooth, but not at all watery, and the majority of shades were nearly opaque or opaque in a single layer. The dry down started quickly but was forgiving as I maneuvered around the edges of the lips but remained a bit tacky when I pressed my lips together for over a half hour later, though as long as I did not press my lips together until five minutes post-application, the color did not lift. I have found the wear to be comfortable so far–non-drying–but not the longest-wearing nor the most budge-proof in liquid lipstick, as just sipping water, tea, or coffee caused color to transfer onto my cups. There was plenty of coverage, so it still lasted through drinking but did start to break down noticeably during a meal. Even just touching the color after a half hour of wearing it yielded color on my fingertips. The formula had a soft, vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

NARS Get It On Powermatte Lip Pigment ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a light-medium, rosy brown with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. While completely opaque, the lipstick did not dry down for an hour–I took photos after a half hour–and remained lightly tacky for the first three hours of wear. The texture was thin but very fluid and substantial, so there was plenty of product and great color payoff in a single layer. It cracked at my deeper lip line (my lower lip) noticeably and had a tendency to fade a bit more unevenly compared to other shades. It wore well for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Huda Beauty Silver Fox Liquid Matte Lipsticks ($20.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark grayish taupe with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which could have applied more evenly. The consistency was thin but fluid, so it spread well across the lips, but this particular shade seemed a little more watery than others. When it dried down, it was mostly matte but a touch tacky, though I did not get transfer. This shade lasted for five hours and was slightly drying.

The formula is supposed to have “true comfort-wear” with “intense color payoff” and a “transfer-free finish.” The formula dried down fairly quickly, where I had enough time to work the product across the lips but not so much time that it sank into all of my lip lines. I’ve only tried three shades (all featured here), but all three remained tacky for an hour or two after the initial application, though I did not see color lift up as a result. There was very little transfer until I started to eat a meal, and then it seemed to break down more readily. It had a very, very sweet vanilla scent that lingered while worn.

NARS Low Rider Powermatte Lip Pigment ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had excellent pigmentation that covered the lips with smooth, even coverage. The texture was lightweight, thin but fluid (not watery), and spread easily across my lips without streaking or pulling into my lip lines. It dried down a mostly transfer-resistant finish, but if I drank anything, I did get some transfer on my glass, though there was so much pigment that it still lasted for a good five hours on me and was non-drying.
