I have another Shop my Stash post today! I’m still going through my things and finding old favorites to share with you all. Today, I’m sharing my little collection of Nyx Matte lipsticks.
These retail between $5-6 at most places, but I typically snag these on sale at Ulta. I believe there are 33 shades total in this line, which is awesome! There’s a good range of nudes, pinks, and some purples, but what’s really worth noting is their range of red shades. Are we surprised that I find their reds to be the best in this line?
Seriously, there are quite a few shades and I have 6 to share in this post.
First, the packaging of these are really cute considering the price. I actually like that the color swatch is in the middle, so I can see them when they’re standing upright in my acrylic organizer and I don’t have to look on the bottom. What’s even better is that the middle is clear, so what you’re seeing in the middle is the actual color of the lipstick. It takes all of the guess work out of these from buying to applying.
Formula wise, these are very pigmented, yet very comfortable feeling. If I had to compare them to any other drugstore matte lipstick, it would be the Milani Moisture Matte formula. These apply so easily, and I can typically get the desired color I want with one pass on the lips.
I have mentioned a few of these shades before in previous posts, and I do highly recommend them. I have never found these to dry my lips out or look too crumbly throughout the day unless it was after a meal.
I would say the lasting power is pretty awesome as well. They last longer than say the Colourpop mattes, and probably last a little longer than even the Milani ones, because the Milani ones tend to slip a bit because they’re so hydrating.
From the wrist down:
Merlot: A deep wine shade with a bit of a purple tone to it. I think this shade is absolutely stunning in the Fall and Winter. It’s not too pink for my taste, and not super berry toned either. It’s a perfect in between for people with a love for vampy shades like myself.
Perfect Red: I have mentioned this shade on my blog before, and I will say this again…this is absolutely the perfect red. It lives up to its name. It’s very neutral toned, so it’s flattering on everyone. This is your ideal 1950’s bombshell red if you’re in the market for an affordable one.
Alabama: I did a lip swatch of this during my Fall lipstick challenge in September, and I fell in love with this. It’s a deep brown toned red, and it’s so beautiful. This is a shade of red that I wear so often in the cooler months.
Eden: This is more of a bright, blue toned red. Blue tones are going to make your teeth look whiter, and this shade is a beautiful red as well.
Whipped Caviar: It took me so long to get this shade. It was sold out for the longest time because it was a “Kylie Jenner” shade. I’m not into it for that, but on me it’s a “my lips but better” shade. This is a muted mauve shade that is the perfect nude for fair skin tones, in my opinion.
Tea Rose: This is my latest addition, and I am so in love with this shade! I love mauve shades in general, and this one almost looks like a muted plum shade on me. I think this is the perfect shade for anyone that wants to darken up their Fall makeup wardrobe but doesn’t enjoy very dark shades or reds.
Well, that’s everything in my little Nyx Matte lipstick collection! I really hope you all enjoyed this post. I love this matte line, and I find they are very underrated.
