Matte lips are one of beauty's biggest trends right now. The spotlight seems to be on nudes shades with big names like Kylie Jenner and the Hadid sisters making these natural, simplistic hues famous! NYX has joined the ranks of many beauty brands before as has debuted their own liquid to matte liquid lipstick line. However, this line has strictly nude shades. With their creamy velvet finishes in 12 different shades, NYX definitely has a winner on their hands with this one.
This was a good product overall. If you are dry lip girl, like me, this product is right up your alley. No matter how much water I drink, lip scrubs I utilize or lip balms I glob on, I have chronically chapped lips. So, if my lipstick is not creamy or a gloss like texture, my lips look like the grand canyon with color all over it. Enough about my lips, let me give you the specs.
These babies are 0.13 fl oz. each which is a fair amount of product. The applicator is a flat top applicator so it's amazing for precision and control when applying the product (less clean up around the lips). I am always sketchy about ordering new lipsticks online. especially when they are fairly new so there aren't swatches for me to guess how the color will translate on me. These were only $7.99 each so I just took the plunge and bought three. The three lippies I purchased were #01-Honeymoon, #05- Beauty Mark, #08- Bedtime. They are slightly scented with a distinct smell (it smells like a product ). It isn't a bad smell, but if you have a sensitivity to fragrance then maybe you should steer clear.
When I applied, it had a very rich texture similar to that of velvet. It took about a minute to convert to the "matte" form. When it did, it was not drying at all and had an amazing finish. I only kept the honeymoon on for the duration of the day and I only had to re-apply once. So I would give this lippie a wear life of about 12 hours (which is still pretty good). For $7.99 a piece, it was a good investment and I will definitely be buying the rest of the collection and I advise that you do too.
