One of the best recommendations, ever! I was actually looking for NYX Round Lipstick in Tea Rose, but the sales assistant said they did not have it in stock, and suggested NYX Matte Lipstick in Sierra instead.

It's a great neutral shade that's not too beige or orange and will work with a tan or lighter skin. It also made my lips look fuller without drying it (even though it's a matte finish). I wear this color for work and on weekends.

What I do not like however, is the packaging that comes with the NYX Matte Lipsticks. They feel flimsy and the twist up tends to get messy.

Overall, a must have in every kit.

For those of us in Australia - dupe alert.

Sierra is exactly the same color as Maybelline 24 Hour Lipstick in Keep me Coral. The only difference is the finish. Maybelline 24 hour lipstick is a satin finish instead of matte.

If I was to repurchase I would repurchase the NYX for a couple of reasons - firstly it has a creamier finish and feels less drying than the Maybelline and secondly it has no added fragrance. Why do companies keep putting fragrance in makeup? Yes I know that fragranced products supposedly sell better, but I still dislike it.

Against my light olive skin this comes across as a faded terracotta color. Easy to wear daytime color.

Edit: I am seriously downgrading my rating for two reasons. One I don't hink much of the quality of the lipstick or the package and two it looks chalky on my lips. At the age of 51 I just don't look that good in matte lippies. Such is life.

I am in love with this lipstick! I got it at CherryCulture for almost half off, just to try more matte lipsticks. For $3.60, I got a beautiful, peachy terracotta color that works really well on my NC25/30 skintone, and it wears quite beautifully. The first time I wore it, I actually went into labor with my first baby. I'm not going to lie and say it was still on and looking perfect when it was all over! But at the end of it all, after nearly 12 hrs of wearing it, I noticed I still had a nice peachy gloss on my lips (I'd also applied some lip balm during this time). This is a great lipstick, and I guess a bit of a good luck charm for me, too. :)

This is a good shade for those who have yellow undertones, it's the perfect everyday lipstick. It comes out natural unless you glide a second and third coat. The matte finish makes it look natural, some matte lipsticks make the lips dry but this doesn't, or at least not as dry as other brands.

Great, inexpensive lipstick. Pretty creamy for a matte, and not the most long-lasting, but it faded evenly after about 5 hours (and a can of coke) and left a touch of pretty, pinkish stain. Full-on, this is a soft orangey-pink on me, kind of like a faded terracotta but a bit more bright than my usual MLBB colors. Good for work since sometimes I want a touch of color, but not necessarily a vibrant popsicle lips/J crew model kinda vibe!

As NYX is scarce in the Philippines, I only bought my Nyx Matte Lipsticks online.

Formula is great!: Pigmented, No crease, Good staying Power, A hint of creaminess and NO SCENT.

On my naturally pigmented lips (naturally a bit purple because I have a lung problem), this is a warm brown red. Very very nice! It's like a red but no so red because of the strong orange brown tone. It complements my NC 30-35 Asian skin very much,especially since I had my hair dyed bright brown.
