Definitely a must buy for me. I think the price is really good. The only issue I am facing (which is certainly negligible), is that it is too matte in dry weather. But nothing that lip balm or lip gloss can't fix. I love the colors in this collection, and I am definitely buying more!
I also think that the color is really rich and intense and it lasts quite well. Definitely recommending this to all the ladies who like cheap but high quality products.
I bought the shade "Pale Pink" and it's pretty but it's a bit too bright. It didn't apply as well as I hoped it would and I exfoliated my lips before applying it. I wouldn't purchase again but it's okay.
I bought this in 2013 shade Angel. It is a lovely shade and it complements fair skin tone. But the swatches you see on the internet might be misleading because the outcome of the colour depends on your natural lipcolour.
I didnt like it initially because it made the cracks on my lips so damn obvious. I got self-conscious when i used it. How did i achieve these obvious cracks? Firstly, lip balm. Secondly and lastly, applied straight to lips. Plus it dried my lips too much. I understand that it is a matte lipstick but i wasnt expecting something extreme :/ In the end it didnt really got utilised much.
This year, i tried using it again and it is so much better now. The trick is to use a lip brush when applying the colour. I keep brushing on the lipstick to get the moisture out of it. Anw after application, no more obvious lip cracks and colour stays on longer than usual. It looks even on my lip and i dont have much to reapply even after eating.
Will i buy this again? Perhaps but in another shade and when mine eventually runs out.
I am a huge fan of this line or lipstick. It is perfect on every level, perfect price, perfect color range, perfect velvety smooth matte finish, perfect opacity, and great staying power! I've owned a lot of the colors for some time now, but recently picked up 2 of their newer 2014 shades, Aria and Street Cred. You can find swatches of those here on my blog www.chocolatedippedglitter.com
I was really, really surprised upon trying this -- haven't been repeatedly disappointed by NYX's lip products, but I really like it! I bought it in the colour "Alabama" which is a deep, purplish red...a surprisingly flattering colour with my yellow-ish complexion and bleached hair!
The colour saturation is great, and moreso, I'm very impressed that I ate an entire meal plus a seriously sticky orange and my lipstick remained relatively intact -- to be honest, I only have one other lip colour that will do that, and it was 2x the price of this.
I'm also pretty surprised that it doesn't make my lips look dry, nor does it make them feel dry (which was the kind of experience I had with every other matte lipstick I tried.)
My primary beef with this is that it looks VERY different on the swatches on various places (in Ulta, on the website, etc.) and it even looks really different in the tube than it does on your lips. Though I very rarely wear any kind of red lip colour without a lip liner underneath it, I find that it's a must for this, because it will look a bit smudged around the edges, and by extension, is a bit hard to apply.
But hey -- it's a vampy, matte shade I can wear and not eat off! I don't know if I would buy more, but I certainly like this one.
Finally I have found the perfect nude lipstick for my skintone....not too dark, not too light, not the same color as my skin tone and I feel it makes my hazel eyes pop. I do wish that it lasted longer but the color is worth reapplying it a few times a day.
? Was I not trying the same lipstick? When I put this on it did not blend in with my lips settled around all the divers in my lips and made any dryness stand out and also mid way through the day it clumped up in a nasty line on my lips. Will not repurchase
I have high expectations with this lipstick, it's lovely but the lighter shades lack consistency and makes my lips really dry. Quite disappointed.
I absolutely adore these lipsticks! It began when my very lovely friend gave me my very first NYX matte lipstick. She gave me the lipstick in "shocking pink" and I was hooked! It is so pigmented and it just glides right on and it has fantastic staying power! I don't find myself needing to apply lip liner because this lipstick really stays in place and doesn't feather or bleed. The colors are so bright and they look wonderful! I also purchased a few on my own in "Pure Red" and "Nude". The red shade is beautiful it's so rich and it looks great. The nude was a little chalky like to me but I think it's because I need to exfoliate my pout and apply a good moisturizing balm prior to using that have because it's light and has a tendency to reveal imperfections so I can't Bash it without actually applying it correctly and give it a fair shot to show its true potential. The product presentation is cute I like it alot. The price is also a plus at only $5.99 a lipstick. Shocking pink is my favorite everyday signature lipstick I really love it. These lipsticks are great.
It's not that easy to find matte lip products at the drug store so I am grateful that NYX has this affordable range. I currently own Whipped Caviar (mauvey pink), Tea Rose (slightly lighter than wc), Sierra (similar to sd but more orangey), Strawberry Daiquiri (peachy pink), and Bloody Mary (vibrant berry red). All of these shades flatter my NC37 skin tone. I love the way these lipsticks wear. They can withstand meals/drinks and will leave a beautiful stain behind. These lipsticks glide on the lips easily and feel pretty creamy. They leave a very subtle matte finish. I can't wait to try out more shades from this range.
