REVIEW: Nyx Matte Lipstick

Hey, guys! So, I know it's been a week since I've posted, but I was just down with the flu and fever. Thankfully, I'm a lot better now! Today, I'm going to be coming at you with a review on the Nyx Matte Lipsticks. I have the shade Angel. 

 WHAT IT CLAIMS: Nyx Matte Lipsticks are highly pigmented, richly formulated lipsticks which glide on smoothly, stay put and impart a non-glossy, high fashion matte finish as they envelop lips in brilliant color. From Pure Red to Nude, Mattr Lipstick is available in 22 shades. 

WHAT I THINK ABOUT IT: I love matte lipsticks! I know there aren't too many people out there who like matte lipsticks, but I know you exist! Nyx Cosmetics has been on the market for quite a while now and it's put up some really amazing things. I can honestly say, this lipstick is one of those awesome products. 

The lipstick bullet is encased in a sleek black tube. The cap feels kind of loose, therefore the packaging to me, looks a little bit cheap. One great thing about the packaging is that the middle of the tube is transparent, so you can easily look at what the true color of the lipstick is like, instead of relying on the sticker at the bottom of the tube. 

As I mentioned above, I picked up the color Angel. It is a gorgeous, bright, coral pink. It instantly brightens up your face as soon as you apply it and it's a perfect color for the summer or spring time. 

This lipstick goes on smoothly on my lips. It does not tug or pull, which most matte lipsticks are notorious for. These lipsticks are also insanely pigmented! They are so pigmented that they might even stain your lips, after you've taken them off. With a lipstick this pigmented, be on the lookout for migration issues; you don't want lipstick all over your face! However, that is something easily fixed by applying a lip pencil beforehand. 

I find that for me, this lipstick is not drying at all, even though it is matte. It's not very moisturizing nor very drying. 

The Nyx Matte Lipsticks are also fairly longlasting. They don't last a crazy amount of time just because they are not as matte as other lipsticks, but they still hold up fairly well. 

PRICE AND AMOUNT: I got this for 999 PKR and it contains 0.14 oz or 4 grams of product in a single tube. 

AVAILABILITY: I got this from the facebook store, BeautyInBudget4U. For folks outside of Pakistan, check out

    1. Hey, Lydii. Thank you for the amazing feedback. :)
      For starters, try to use as much sun protection as possible, as that can be a cause for lined lips. Secondly, check out this article which I looked up for you. It shows you how to line lined lips. Hope that helps! :)
