Nyx Suede​ Lip Liner - Review

Can we talk about lip liner for a moment? I find this to be the more forgotten about beauty product. Lip liner has so many benefits, yet somehow seems to get over-looked. I always get asked ‘how do you get your dark colors to not bleed everywhere?’ The answer there is lip liner! Now, with that being said, for those who have issues finding a shade to go with that matte lip color, Nyx has the answer in their Suede Matte Lip Liners! These are super pigmented and smooth. Can be used as a full lip color, for an ombre effect, or just to line your lips for that perfect look. Comes in 36 shades so you can find the perfect one. Works with Nyx Suede cream lipstick, Matte lipstick and Soft Matte Cream. But can be used with any lipcolor.

I decided to pick up these 3 beauties (B to T: Amethyst, Club Hopper, and Brooklyn Thorn. )

For those who follow me on Instagram you have probably seen these swatches, but I wanted to do a full lip swatch so lets get started!

Starting with Amethyst. Previously I had used eyeliner for this color and it works well in  a pinch but i LOVE this violet.

For this one, I decided to outline my lips and fill the corners. Then I used Nyx Liquid Suede in Subversive Socialite.

Next, we have Brooklyn Thorn

Now, I’m not much for Nude shades, but I like the darker side of the nude spectrum. This was perfect

I went with the full lip shade with Brooklyn Thorn. Then I went over it with Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bow & Arrow. This combo paired beautifully!

Club Hopper is a deep purple mauve. This color.. is … AMAZING!

I had a hard time picking a lip color for this one, I have so many. I feel this would look great with deep browns or even reds to give more depth to the color.

I did the full lip color with Club Hopper and went over it with Nyx High Voltage in Dahlia.

Final thoughts: As with most liners, it can tug a little. Make sure your lips are moisturized with lip balms or lip primers. This will minimize tugging. Also occasionally using a lip scrub will help lips from cracking. Always make sure to wear lip balms to keep your lips beautiful and soft. With 36 shades this has become my go to lip liner!
