NYX Cosmetics’ Suede Matte Lipstick in Brunch Me

Posted on Thursday, at

This is a borderline orange color. There’s enough depth that it’s right on the edge of a brown with strong orange tones. The coverage is pretty solid. The color isn’t one that looks fantastic on me, but the product performs excellently. (I can’t wear this as a lip color, but might be able to pull it of as a cream base for eyeshadow.) The coverage is very good - standard for the Suede Matte Lipstick line....

I don’t know if I got a slightly off-batch, or if I need to put this over a creme polish. But the VNL really irritated me heavily. I was thrilled for Bellini and this polish (the two foils in the...

Based on the vendor image this looks like it would be more purplish. It’s definitely a cooler red, but when applied it did not show up as purple or even more “berry” than “red”.

Because of the relative thinness of the polish, it self-levels very well.
