Biker Babe

NYX Biker Babe Liquid Suede Metallic Matte ($7.50 for 0.13 fl. oz.) is a deep red with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic finish. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, mousse-like texture that spread evenly across the lips and did not feel clingy. There was a bit of color that dried down and sat in my deepest lip line. This shade wore nicely for six hours and was a bit 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.

Modern Maven

NYX Modern Maven Liquid Suede Metallic Matte ($7.50 for 0.13 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with neutral-to-warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The color payoff was nearly opaque, while the liquid lipstick felt smooth, lightweight, and mousse-like–not runny but not heavy either with an airy feel overall. It applied evenly for the most part, but there were some areas that could have been evener. The color stayed on well for six hours and was lightly drying.

Ego

NYX Ego Liquid Suede Metallic Matte ($7.50 for 0.13 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium-dark purple with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color payoff, but it just did not apply evenly and had a tendency to lift as I tried to even out the color. It ended up looking patchy, and a second layer made every line on my lips appear even more exaggerated than they were with just one layer of product. This shade seemed to have a thicker consistency that took a bit longer to dry down. I thought it would flake off as it wore, but while it felt like it would, it did not and lasted fairly well for five hours, though it was drying.

Oh wow! NYX is doing a really great job with this line. Biker Babe and Modern Maven are really pretty!
Wish Ego could’ve turned out better, it’s a really nice color.

I had to laugh as I read the dupe list for Modern Maven AFTER having already hit ❤ and Wishlist! Because TF Seadragon and UD Amulet are 2 of my go-to’s here as it is, LOL!

Biker Babe is a whole nuther story; LOVE it and have no obvious dupes. Getting it! ?

I have tried other brand metallic lips and have only liked a couple of the formulas. Most feel very heavy on my lips and crack almost immediately. The Jouer ones in particular were uncomfortable. I haven’t tried every color, of course, but the two I tried did not work for me. I gave it away to a friend. There are a couple of Vice shades that I can wear. I am interested in trying NYX formula as these are lovely shades.
