Review & Swatches: NYX Suede Cream Lipstick in Stone Fox & Amethyst - NYX Lip Lingerie Lipstick in Embellishment

I'm not sure if I've mentioned before, but I'm lucky enough to be part of a facebook page called Beauty of Colour. A few of the absolute babes have been WURKIN some of the NYX Suede Creme Lipsticks and my needy self wanted to jump on the same bandwagon - SO, I decided to purchase Stone Fox and Amethyst. And then NYX' s new Lip Lingerie liquid lipstick in Embellishment happened to fall into my basket. You can get NYX directly from their website, order it from Boots orrrrr if you're lucky enough, you may have a counter at your local Boots! There's also a counter in Selfridges in London.

Stone Fox
I loooove this shade - it somehow seems to look different on everyone I've seen it on! On me, it's a dark charcoal (almost black) grey with a greenish undertone. I really really like this shade and the formula is super comfortable. They're similar to a liquid lipstick but they don't dry suuuper matte and aren't transfer proof. But I will say, these babies are extremely long wearing,  but they will smudge, smear and transfer.



Embellishment
This is such a pretty grey/ lavender toned nude on me. This shade doesn't wash me out at all which I was worried about since paler/ lavender toned neutral shades tend to make me look ashy. Again, this formula is really comfortable to wear and is long wearing but not transfer proof. These ones dry a little more matte and feel slightly tackier on the lips but aren't uncomfortable at all!




Amethyst
Woooooooah my god, the pigmentation on this shade is mental. When I was putting it on I was just Aziz Ansari smiling because of how beautiful the shade was and how pigmented it was. This is a bright, true purple colour with blue undertones. (Okay, I usually find it super annoying when people swatch over their tattoos but Amethyst is so pigmented it's completely covered it! I'm in awe!)

So overall, I love these liquid lipsticks and everyone should go and buy Stone Fox because it's a killer shade and we need to all take a group selfie wearing it.

Have you tried any of these before? What shades do you have?
