NYX Matte Lipstick Review

I bought these NYX Matte Lipstick all on one purchase online when Ulta was having a sale and why did I buy 10? I no control thats why! and plus I was dying to try these, but I'm getting better at controlling myself when it comes to buy things on a spurge. Does anybody else have this problem? As you may notice I had a theme when buying these, I was going for the pink-muave color lipsticks.

The first five are the more light pink tones and I got to say I am not really satisfied with these. Some of the lighter pink really seep through your lips, even with a lipliners on, like Pale Pink and Couture, but for Temptress, Daydream, and Spirit they seem to work fine but they look very different on my lips than I expected. Out of these five bunches I would pick Temptress cause it has this little bit of orange tone to it and probably the most flattering color out of these five. You can probably work these if you put these matte lipstick on top of another lipstick.

Now these last five are more of my favorites. These are more of the mauve colors and darker. Euro Trash, Audrey, Tea Rose, Natural, and Whipped Caviar are very pigmented lipstick and work a lot better than the first five that I presented. Out of these five I like the most is Natural. I feel like it is such a nice color that it can work with almost all skin tones. Whipped Caviar is similar to Natural but just a tad bit darker if you want a similar color.

I love NYX but I honestly feel like some of their colors are hits and misses. No doubt that the darker color products feel more pigmented and more workable but it is the lighter colored ones that I wish worked for me cause these were the colors that I looked more forward to when I order them. Besides their color their staying power is decent, it comes off when eating and stays on a good amount of time. Overall I would rate these 4 out of 5 because I know that not all of the matte lipstick are a miss. Plus these are really inexpensive alternative that you can play with if you really want to get into lipsticks.
