The Best & Worst of NYX Liquid Suede Metallic Mattes

NYX Liquid Suede Metallic Mattes
NYX Liquid Suede Metallic Mattes

NYX Liquid Suede Metallic Mattes ($7.50 for 0.13 fl. oz.) is a new finish in the brand’s liquid lipstick that’s supposed to be “ultra-metallic” with “intense payoff.” 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.

The Best & Worst of Jouer High Pigment Lip Glosses

Jouer High Pigment Lip Gloss

Jouer High Pigment Lip Gloss ($17.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) just launched with 14 shades. The formula is supposed to have “full-coverage color that glides on smoothly and moisturizes the lips” with a “non-sticky” texture. The majority of the shades were semi-opaque or more pigmented with a thin, creamy texture that felt more like a hybrid between gloss and liquid lipstick than a true gloss.

Despite being thinner, the gloss spread well over the lips and most shades applied evenly. There were a few shades that seemed prone to settling into my lip lines, though. They were average wearing from three to five hours with no feathering or bleeding. The formula was lightly hydrating and non-sticky with a sweet vanilla scent but no discernible taste.
