NYX Exposed is a very warm-toned, medium gold with a metallic finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $7.50 and contains 0.13 oz.
NYX Exposed Liquid Suede Metallic Matte ($7.50 for 0.13 fl. oz.) is a brighter, medium copper with warm, brown undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation, though it was not full coverage in a single layer. The consistency was lightweight, mousse-like but thin and dried down quickly. There was an emphasis of the texture on my lips, but it did not seem as noticeable from a normal viewing distance as this shade was incredibly reflective. The color wore well for five hours and was slightly 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.
