This is my very first NXY lipstick and I am really excited about it. I love matte lipsticks and bold colours, and after reading tons of online reviews I had heard that NYX makes an amazing line of matte lipsticks. With that knowledge in mind, and the brand new Rexall in my work building, it seemed like the perfect time to make the plunge and purchase my first NXY Matte Lipstick.
There were a ton of shades to choose from and I spent the better part of my lunch hour trying to pick the best one for me. I ended up settling on shade MLS 13, called Angel, and decided that if I love the lipstick I can get another shade (or three) in a few weeks.
Well it looks like I will be getting a few more shades soon because I did love the lipstick! It is super pigmented, smooth to apply, and delivers and amazing matte look. The formula is creamy and slides on nicely, and isn’t too thick or drying like some matte lippies are. This one is just lovely and it lasted for about 4-6 hours of wear. I didn’t find it too drying, however I do apply a clear balm underneath my lipstick so that might have contributed. It didn’t seem to crack or flake very much for the first few hours, but after about 4 hours and some eating/drinking I did see a few patches.
That isn’t enough to deter me from this lipstick though. Getting at least 4 hours of a bold pigmented colour, and a chic matte look, for under $10 is worth it to me. I’m glad I finally got around to trying a NYX lipstick and I will definitely be adding more to my collection. worth it to me.
