I have the Perfect Red shade. I'm so in LOVE with this lipstick! It's so pigmented, and stay perfectly on my lips for a long time. And the color is so perfect, the texture is well creamy, not make my lips dry (I wasn't wearing lipgloss on top). Oh and it doesn't smell anything. I have a plan for buying another shade of this line! So addictive :D
i totally love this lipstick. It looks really good on my lips. I bought the indie flick and tea rose.Even though it is matte, it is creamy, not drying at all.. Well its perfect. And it doesnt have a weird smell. Well i'd totally buy a lot more. And its cheap. LOVE IT!
I have the NUDE (MLS01) color and I LOVE IT. It the perfect cross between nude and pink. I use it with a black smokey eye on a night out and it looks stunning. I used to use MAC's myth with a pink lipliner but this is much faster and easier. I can't wait to try out more colors. Seriously buy the color NUDE!!!!!!
Finally found my HG red lipstick. NYX matte lipstick in Pure Red is everything I've been looking for. Looks really good against my NC30-35 skin , lasts well, cheap, what's not to like?
I can imagine this looking good on a wide variety of skintones. The texture is relatively creamy, considering it is a matte lipstick. Nonetheless, it can be drying, so I would advise a layer of lipbalm underneath.
I have been looking for both the perfect matte lipstick and a red color that I can wear without looking like I'm trying too hard.
I bought this particular brand/type in Perfect Red and Alabama. For reference, I'm a NC37 in MAC and B20 in Chanel. Additionally, I have not worn Alabama yet (waiting for the right time/date) so I'll be reviewing PR only. Once I have worn Alabama, I will update this review.
On the website, it says that PR is a bright blue-toned red. Depending on your definition of bright, I must say that the color is indeed eye-catching. I have pigmented lips but in order to bring out the color to its full potential, I applied concealer on my lips before the lipstick and the color turns out to be this amazing light red that is wearable with any outfit. If you're looking for a color that's office-appropriate, you might want to try this color out. If you're around my age range and you want a lip color that is fun yet sophisticated, you might also want to try this color out.
The formula is indeed creamy, as the other reviewers have pointed out, but stays on as matte as it possibly can. Don't worry about it being drying -- as long as you've moisturized your lips beforehand, it won't be an issue and this is coming from a woman whose lips naturally make drying out an everyday thing!
I might try out the other colors from this line because this is truly the best matte formula I've ever used.
I have no complaints on this product! I'm reviewing the specific shade I bought and used recently which was "Alabama." It is the perfect deeper red for fall and winter! My skin is an olive color, and I have dark features, and this worked perfectly for me. But honestly, i think this would look lovely on fairer skin tones at well. It's universally complimentary. Best part, it's cheap! less than 6 dollars. I also enjoyed that it was very matte, my only complain is that it did not make it through a few drinks and food. But it doesn't claim to be long lasting, and with any lipstick you'll have to reapply. All in all, I highly recommend it! :)
This stuff is horrid! I wanted to try NYX and I bought a matte lipstick for Fall/Winter 2012-2013 and it was too drying! Oh it was pigmented, but it was SO pigmented that I HAD to use a lip brush to apply, otherwise it would go on so sloppily and uneven. I don't like buying lipsticks where I have to use a lip brush to put it on, otherwise I would buy a lip palette and not a lipstick.
Very pigmented, LOVE IT! Will definitely repurchase! Their red, is really RED! ;)
I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS LIPSTICK LINE!
I actually got to try the Nyx Black Label Lipsticks prior to this but I think I have a new HG lipstick! I love the formula of these lipsticks! They're very pigmented and a bit creamy. It has no scent. No yucky scent of the round ones and no grape scent of the black label ones.
The colors I got were Sierra and Angel. In Manila, these products are scarce so I only bought it online without trying it at all. I just based it on numerous photos and reviews. My intense research truly paid off because these 2 colors I got were so great! They complemented my NC 30-35 Asian skin.
On my naturally pigmented (purply) lips, Sierra is a warm brown red.
Angel,on the other hand, is a pinky coral red. Not coral orange coral. More on the salmon side. So it's like a pinky salmon red.
I love it so much I'm hunting for more of these that Iike. I'm eyeing Strawberry Daiquiri,Euro Trash,Indie Flick,Audrey and Tea Rose next.
Nyx,you earned a loyal follower!
I love these lipsticks I just bought perfect red and I have Alabama perfect red is a good dupe for macs Russian red and Alabama is a good dupe for viva glam 1 the staying powers pretty good I don't even use a lip liner ; )
