New from NYX are Matte Lipsticks which are super pigmented, matte finish lipsticks that come in twenty-two shades.
These are matte as far as the look and texture goes, but they actually feel a lot more moisturizing than you might expect from a matte lipstick. And coming from me, aka “Mrs. Dry Lips” that’s saying a lot!
The colors I received to try out are:
Bloody Mary – Raspberry red
Pure Red – Classic red
Indie Flick – Bright coral red
Shocking Pink – Bright candy pink
Bloody Mary, Pure Red, Indie Flick, Shocking Pink
I really like the tubes these come in. They feel fairly durable, not super cheap or flimsy. But the best part is you can actually see through the middle of them at the color inside so it gives you a better idea of what it looks like.
Shocking Pink, Indie Flick, Pure Red, Bloody Mary
All the lipsticks are super pigmented and rich. The texture goes on creamy and easily and then kind of sets after a few minutes. They are matte in the sense that they don’t have a lot of shine, but they don’t look super matte like some lipsticks do. As mentioned above, they feel really moist, not tight or dry, and they last hours and hours with no bleeding, fading or drying out of my lips.
I wore Indie Flick for 4+ hours with no primer or lip liner and it felt very comfortable the whole time and I had no issues. Great stuff!
MAC Candy Yum Yum, NYC Shocking Pink
When I first applied Shocking Pink I thought it was going to be a dupe for MAC Candy Yum Yum. No such luck as you can see, but they are somewhat similar in that they are both super blue-based bright pink mattes.
I really like these colors and the texture. They feel great on my lips and I like that they have a wide variety of colors available.
