The perfect starter red in my humble opinion. Perfectly balanced, it looks great on nearly everyone as it is a neutral tone of dark red. Just very chic, sophisticated, French like even. The formula makes it a pleasure to apply. This is the one shade that is always consistent in my makeup bag for any day, place or time. It is very classic and fool proof. You can apply it with your eyes closed and …Read more

I must have gotten a dud when I bought the shade Monte Carlo. I LOVE the SMLC's and have bought many shades over the years, and they all had that same creamy matte formula that dries down fairly quickly. However, this shade is super liquidy, streaky and doesn't dry down at all on me. All the swatches I've seen online have the classic soft matte look so i'm wondering if they …Read more

I pretty much wear red lipstick to go with my retro image, this is one tube in my arsenal. It’s a beautiful deep red but the formula is kind of drying and doesn’t reapply well. Nevertheless it lasts all day and doesn’t smear too much which are big pluses. Try it out if you want a classy red.

O.K so, there's a lot of people who absolutely loooove these. I do too or at least I did. They aren't bad at all. But on days when you are having extremely chapped lips, it won't do the work. It goes on buttery on application. After drying slowly it gets very dry, dry to the point where your lips look dead. The shade Monte Carlo is absolutely gorgeous though. It's 98% similar …Read more

This was my first matte lipstick purchase several years ago and I still love the color! I really like the NYX soft matte lip cream texture and the fact that it doesn't dry my lips out.

I am NC 30-35, yellow olive toned, with deeply pigmented lips that have a cool undertone. I assumed when searching for a red that my match would be blue toned. When I swatched this Monte Carlo and Amsterdam, the latter, an orange based tone worked best against my skin. However I use both because when applied lightly to dry but previously moisturized and exfoliated lips, (I scrap off the doe …Read more

Beautiful colour on my yellowish skin tone, colour dried to the exact colour on the tube. Unfortunately, lipsticks only last 2 hours on my lips, this product is no exception. Maybe I'm just clumsy but dark lipsticks tend to smudge and smear and I seem to get it all over my chin and nose.

I'm allergic to fragrance but thankfully I'm not allergic to Nyx …

Just for the fact that I get compliments every single time I wear this, without exaggeration, I would repurchase it. My skin has a yellow undertone to it yet somehow this lipstick compliments my features beautifully (despite its cool tone).

The funniest thing about Monte Carlo? It makes my lips look larger (even with a lip liner) and not smaller. Somehow it defies the rules of dark …

If you are looking for matte lipstick, this is a good buy. It's cheap, nice looking packaging (secure, doesn't ooze around the applicator), and lasts a long time. In fact, too long! Last night I went to bed 8 hours after applying this, after dinner, drinks, and reapplying some balm on top, and it was still there!

I don't think I'll be purchasing another matte …

Love this blue based red color. I think it is flattering on fair and deeper skin tones. Once applied it doesn't go anywhere. It fades a bit after a few hours but my lips remain red tinted. Reapplying is not an issue. It dries completely matte which i love just be sure to exfoliate and wear lip balm beforehand.
