Great Matte Lippie on the cheap!
When I first decided to buy this I was a bit skepitcal because it was only $6 & 98% of all other drug store lipsticks are horrible on me! It is creamy & long lasting in color. I highly reccomend this to everyone who is wanting to explore with colors or a great cheap alternative to the high end brands!
Pros: Affordable, amazingly pigmented, lasts forever Cons: Slight feathering, slightly drying I have this in Pure Red. This is the most amazing bright red lipstick ever. If you apply this on exfoliated and prepped lips, it glides on smoothly and evenly. You only need 1 coat to achieve full coverage. Despite its opacity, this lipstick is not oily, caky or thick at all. It feels very, very light on my lips. It might start to feather after 2 hours or so, but I find that blotting and touching up extends the wear time tremendously. It's also slightly drying on my lips, but I have drip lips that are prone to chapping. For the price, I believe this is the best quality lipstick you can get!
High Quality Lipsticks for Cheap, Great Color Range! Review for Butter and Shocking Pink
I'm definitely late on the NYX bandwagon and now that NYX is at CVS I can travel 10 minutes for a NYX fix as opposed to the typical 25 minutes I used to have to trek to Target. The only downside is that both of the those retailers only have a limited selection of products so I can't get the HD concealer wand- grr!! Anyway, I was doing a specific makeup look that required a beige/brown lip and once I found out about Butter, I had to have it! I also picked up Shocking Pink a little later when I saw one of my fave Beautylishers/Gurus wearing it, and since I've been in a pink lippie mood, this shade fit the bill! Its not as intense as Candy Yum Yum, but I wanted something similar. I love how creamy these lippies are, not drying, and still have a slight sheen. Really worth having a few in your collection! Butter is a beige/brown with an almost grey tint- I love it because its similar to the bizarre colors that the indie brands put out but its available at the drugstore! Its perfect for any 90s or even Mod look! Shocking Pink is a blue based bright/hot pink that doubles really well with NYX's Pinky Lip liner. I paired it with an ultramarine/cobalt liner on the eyes that really made the blue undertones in the lippie stand out!
- Pure Red
NYX products never cease to amaze me. I love the matte lipsticks! Super cheap, especially for the quality and pigmentation! I love it. The staying power is alright, it does stain my lips though! Doesn't look bad on the lips, at all :)
Well, for one thing, the color I have isn't listed in the options. I have the color Siren which just came out. I was surprised how much I really love this lipstick. It is a beautiful matte finish without flaking and drying throughout the day - it has a light and comfortable feel in my lips. Definitely one of my new favorites and surprisingly awesome for the price you pay. The color is a dark red/plum mix that is absolutely beautiful. It looks really dark but it definitely has color.
Dupe for macs Candy Yum-Yum
This color is absolutely vibrant and opaque. One glide on the lips and that's all it takes. The texture itself while putting on feels rich and creamy, not dry which is great for a matte lipstick, definitely not a retro matte look like Mac offers but still a great alternative. I sadly don't own a lip liner to pair it with just because I rarely wear this color and it's my only vibrant shade of pink lipstick I own but it'll give the color a great dimension. The price will always make this product worth it and the quality of course. I also own the color Butter (taupe-brown nude).
