I didn't believe the description when it said it leaves a matte finish bc it looks just like a lip gloss. They were only $6 at Nordstrom Rack so I bought 2 along with Stockholm.
Perfect red tone for olive/tan skin tone
Color doesn't rub off on other things (I ran my lip balm over this and expected the redness to be on it, but surprisingly wasn't) so yay
Dries out your lips after a while so make sure they're really moisturized before applying
These are my new lip obsession. I love a good matte lip and these are perfect. Super pigmented with great bright colors that go on rich and smooth.
A couple of tips: Before applying let a coat of lip balm sink in to lips. Then apply a clear lip liner all over lips. This prevents the product from 'cracking'.
I recently bought this while in Ulta and absolutely loved the color! I love the way it looks on my lips, I like how matte it is. I got loads of compliments on it throughout the school day (which is always a plus). The only problem I have with it is that it tends to seep into the cracks.. But besides that, I absolutely am in love with it!
Got this today and I'm way too in love with this one. Bet the sales lady offered me this one because I had red lipstick on mine... which sadly was drying my lips, and I'm pretty sure I made a good decision for taking it! This baby is amazing, it lasts for hours and hours... and surprisingly, it feels like it's working great on moisturizing my lips. This is one of my best investment, totally.
It's a good product :O
It's really good. I have two of the darker shades and they last a very long time. They can be a bit drying, but you can always put lipgloss on or something :U I used to have "Tokyo" but I didn't really like it that much. For some reason the light colors don't work as well as the darker ones. They dont last as long and they can be streaky. If you're gonna buy this product, get the darker colors ;o
Very pigmented but really drying on the lips.
I love this color so much! Istanbul is a blue based pink. It is very pigmented and applies smoothly on the lips. The only downside of this product for me is that it is very drying on the lips. The color payoff is awesome but the lasting power is quite short. After a few hours of application, it seeps into the cracks and lines of the lips and if you already have dry lips, it will make the flakes more visible. I gave this a rating of average because of the formulation.
This lipstick is an eye catcher. I bought it, put it on in the parking lot, and continued shopping. While walking into the next store a lady told me how she loved it. This is defiantly a must buy. Your lips stay moist while the color lasts all day. Through eating, drinking, and kissing this stuff does not rub, BUT it's easy to wipe away at the end of the day. I love it and I recommend this highly. The price is great and I'll be buying it in other shades in no time.
This is the best matte lip cream, because it is a cream keeps your lip moisturized longer then a stain and the color stays. I was shocked over Christmas that I put it on in the morning with NYX lip pencil and when i sat down to take my makeup off at the end of the night and it was still there... I ate, I drank, and smoked my e-cig, and kissed, and it was still there. I didnt reapply but i did use a chapstick at least once or twice. For the price you cant go wrong
This shade is definitely not for the faint of heart! It's a bold blue-toned red that seriously pops! I was almost scared and I made a huge mistake of wearing it out because, everyone stared non-stop. As with all red lipsticks, you need a red lip liner to get precise application! The lasting power is amazing and it fades to a less vibrant beautiful red but the matte texture can be slightly crumbly after awhile. I recommend going with just a layer or two. Nothing more. I love the product, just wish I had more confidence to wear it out!
actually pretty good
I have bad luck with a lot of NYX products, but these work pretty well for the price esp this color which I find as a great everyday nude. Not very bold but enough to make my lips look fuller, does wear off within 2 hrs though so I have to touch up quite a bit, Overall the best matte drug store brand matte ive found.
