NYX Soft-Spoken & Vintage Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick Review

NYX Soft Spoken, Vintage Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick

When NYX announced that they were releasing the Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks┬áI was pretty excited because I knew they’d be great. Their original liquid lipsticks, Soft Matte Lip Creams, have become an old school cult classic and a favorite of mine so I had to see how this new line compared to the good ol’ thing.

Heads up: I’m feeling them.

If you follow me on Snapchat, you may have noticed that I’ve been wearing 2 shades all month: Soft-Spoken and Vintage. Soft-Spoken, a warm pinky brown, and Vintage, a warm plummy brown, are 2 beautiful fall lipsticks that are great everyday shades for WOC.

Soft-Spoken is a wonderful fall nude that really flatters my brown complexion but I think it would look good on just about anyone. It’s very easy to wear and doesn’t necessarily require a lip liner to look its best. Vintage, on the other hand, is a little edgier but still has a surprisingly natural vibe. Judging by the tube, you’d expect a vampy red but Vintage has turned out to be a “my lips but better” lipstick for me. It’s slightly darker than my natural lip color but I love how soft it looks on me. Vintage is hands down my favorite shade of the bunch.

Although I love the Soft Matte Lip Creams, I have to admit, I like the Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks a little more. Soft-Spoken and Vintage applied smoothly and evenly with full coverage and sweet vanilla cake scent (like the Soft Matte Lip Creams). The major difference between the two is that the Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks dry down completely to a matte finish.

While I enjoy the Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks, I do have a couple minor gripes with the formula. The first issue is that it takes them quite a long time to dry down. Like over 3 minutes. Color me spoiled ’cause I’m used to that super quick dry down that locks color in place all day. It does allow for you to clean up any mistakes — which is a good thing. But Soft-Spoken and Vintage apply very well so I didn’t really need the extra dry down time. Or the slight transferring that comes with it. My other complaint is that the formula doesn’t seem to be as long lasting as other lipsticks. Soft-Spoken and Vintage lasted for around 4-5 hours before fading into a light stain. Not too bad, but not what I’m expecting from a liquid-to-matte lipstick. I get at least 6 hours of wear from most formulas (Kat Von D, Milani and Sephora) so these fall a little short. However, I still think Soft-Spoken and Vintage are good quality and a great alternative to higher end liquid lipsticks as they’re easy to apply and aren’t too drying. Just be sure to line your lips all over before you apply them to help them to cut down on touch ups throughout the day.

    Vintage looks perfect on you, Fancie! I agree entirely with the formula, it’s about the same with mine, Kitten Heels. =( A bit of a letdown, but tolerable.

    1. Glad it wasn’t just me! I guess we had high expectations after all these great liquid lipstick releases lol

    Softspoken has been one of my favorite nudes since I got it. I just got Vintage a couple days ago. I think the color is absolutely beautiful, but the formula seems a bit thinner than the other shades I have.

    1. Both colors are so perfect for fall! That could be a quality control issue though. Mine seems to be same consistency as my other shades. Does it perform any differently?

      1. Rachel Runyan

        Vintage is a bit patchier, but it dries down faster, too. I have to do a couple coats. Other than that, it performs like my other shades. It’s just not as creamy.

        1. That’s odd. Between these two, I feel like Vintage took the longest to dry down lol. There’s definitely a bit of a quality control problem here but thankfully it doesn’t seem too bad. I hope the other shades I have aren’t too tricky to apply though

            Yeah, sounds like a QC problem. Mine still works, though, so I can deal considering the low price.
