I am in complete and total unbridled, can't-live-without-this, oh-my-goodness-are-you-kidding-me love. This lipstick (in Alabama) is everything I wanted MAC Viva Glam I to be. (VGI was terribly dry, patchy, and faded and feathered so badly within an hour that it was returned the next day.)
The color stays so true for hours and hours without fading or feathering. I use a lip liner to aid in that, but even without it, it holds up beautifully. Even after eating lunch, I find that I only have to dab a little on the center of my bottom lip to reapply, happily ignoring the rest of my lips' surface, which stays saturated in color.
My lips do not get dry while wearing this. I'm pretty stringent in my lip care routine and rules, so they are properly prepped ahead of time, but some mattes will still destroy my lips within just a couple hours. Not this. The surprising amount of creaminess in this lipstick keeps my lips soft and plump.
The packaging is a little cheap-looking because it has far too much printed on it, and unless you lower it all the way down until it snaps, it will swivel in the tube and mash itself up against the inside of the cap. No bueno. But as long as I conscientiously snap it down, it's a non-issue. So far, I haven't forgotten to do so, but I'm sure that'll change and then I'll cry. Work on the packaging, NYX, to make it less wonky and more attractive. Then this product will be a ten. Or a five, by MUA standards...
Anyway, this lipstick is a super duper awesome win. LOVE.
I've been wanting to try a bold red lip but have it matte so when I came across this product I had to snatch it up. I fell in love with this lipstick! It has great pigmentation and it goes on so easily. The wear is pretty impressive too, especially if you apply a lip liner underneath. The only thing I didn't love was the packaging. It's cool that it has a see through bit in the middle, but the tube swivels so much on its own I'm afraid I'll open it and my lipstick will be smashed. Other than that, I definitely recommend buying this.
Selected shades: hippie chic (pastel peachy pink), pale pink (baby pink), summer breeze (barbie pink)
- long wearing
Comments: These are very drying, as expected. I love the color range, though. They're pigmented and wear well. My favorite is Summer Breeze.
I love nyx matte lipstick serial number 12 MLS. I think the colour is result from mixture between nude and red colour. So the colour is not too pale but not too bright. The negative side of this lipstick is that it's moistureless for my lips, I think black label series has better moisturizer.
I can't speak for every color in this line, but stay away from Pale Pink! I hate the formula of that color. It's EXTREMELY dry, it's so dry that it's hard for me to even put it on my entire lips without feeling like I'm creating more wrinkles on them. The color is also really patchy and splotchy and looks very cakey - not good at all. It is very pigmented but with it being so drying and hard to work with, I never use it. I also hate how it accentuates the lines on your lips. I have tried this with heavy lip balm underneath and another color and I think maybe it would work better mixed with another color but by itself I hate it.
I bought Pale Pink first off the shde makes my lips look dead but if I sheer it out its not so bad. I really like the formula. It didn't find it drying at all and it had some slip to it. Overall I like it but I bought the wrong colour.
Bought this in "Alabama." It's a beautiful red with my fair skin and brunette hair (with red lowlights). The texture is great and staying power -- no complaints.
I'm always happy with NYX lip products. Great colors and finishes, and so inexpensive! Just wish the entire line was carried in a brick-and-mortar store.
I own all colors of this lipstick line and really like them. I'm in my 40's and find anything with shimmer does not woke on my lips. So I mostly stick to cream and mattes now. I have mattes in many brands including Wet & Wild, Revlon, Maybelline, MAC, Bobbi Brown, Inglot, etc. These NYX lipsticks are by far my favorite mattes and are nearly the cheapest. My favorite nude colors in this brand are Tea Rose and Caviar. continued >>
The only color I have so far is "pale pink" ... super pigmented lip stick, totally matte.. DO NOT USE IF YOU HAVE DRY LIPS. As you know, matte lipsticks can make your lips look diseased.. well if you have dry lips, or will not moisturize them then I definitely don't recommend this product to you. However, put a lipgloss over & you'll be good to go!
My everyday lip routine consists of Rimme's Exaggerate lip liner which I line & use as allover color, NYX's matte lipstick & one of NYX's Mega Shine Lipgloss's & my lips are good to go for hours! I know you're probably saying the lipgloss defeats the purpose of matte, well it does for a while, but once the shiny-ness of the lipgloss wears off, them matte comes through & doesn't look dry & cakey.
In case you're wondering, this color pairs fantiastic with NYX's Mega Shine Lipgloss in "Salsa" continued >>
I've long since wanted to try NYX matte lipstick eversince I've heard of it in videos. As it is an imported product, i didn't rate the price as being cheap. For me (in the Philippines), they are about average in cost.
I got my first lipstick in NUDE. I was expecting a light brown to peachy tone color--- I should have searched for more reviews with pictures. Being morena or having darker complexion, it doesn't suit me at all, but I can easily see how it will look great on fair to light skin tones.
As it is so pink, i can't use it alone and maybe has to top it off with another shade, maybe with a gloss of darker shade.
Quantity-wise- i think there is lesser amount of lipstick as compared to other brands, but then again it is cheaper so i guess you can expect that.
Packaging- its not the best i've seen, and i prefer the packaging for black label over this one.
I will buy the product again, and i will choose a more suitable shade this time. And see how long-lasting it will be.
