NYX Matte Lipstick is just as good as high end lipsticks, but for a fraction of the price! These are creamy and non-drying. They do appear matte on the lips, but are not transfer proof. These last a good time, about 5 hours, unless I eat or drink. I don't find that these bleed, but I always use a lip liner (I always use a lip liner with any lipstick.) I
The only reason this lipstick looses 1 star is because of its packaging. I don't need anything fancy, and I like the minimalist vibe, but the packaging can easily break so that the lipstick doesn't rise out of the container when you twist the bottom. I wish they would fix this issue, because it is the only think keeping it from 5 stars.
There are so many colors to choose from! I bought the shade, "Whipped Caviar" from the NYX website (It's also available at ULTA). It's a dusty rose-mauve (leans cool-toned). I'm so impressed! It's the perfect My-Lips-But-Better shade for me (I'm NW10/NW15 with pigmented lips).
If you're on the fence about these, get them! They won't disappoint!

Obviously, it's mate, but it's super comfortable to wear, nothing (nothing at all lol) I dry, something I can not stand very much. It's kind of creamy, but matt finish, which is my favorite type of lipstick in the world, hahaha

The color I have is dark nude, but maybe if you take a powerful blue you "get out" of the lip, so I do not know if in very dark colors you need a profiler.

The pigmentation is quite good. With just one pass, you get a very good coverage. I do not recommend that you spend it many times over the "painted", since it is a great layer of product, which is more likely to go before and also, you spend twice as much product.

These lipsticks last a lot, but depending on what you do. Let me explain: if you are 4-6 hours without eating practically, you will stand almost perfect. But if you eat or drink something that is very pringoso (type ice cream or smoothie), it starts to go a little in the center, but always in a very uniform way, NOTHING to patches.

Overall, I'm a huge fan of NYX Matte lipsticks. They're affordable but are very good quality lipsticks that come in a huge variety of shades. They tend to stay put pretty well on my lips after I've eaten - slight lightening, but doesn't completely fade or bleed.

Short reviews for each of the shades I own - for reference, my skin tone is NC40-42:

Whipped Caviar: HG lipstick! It is the most gorgeous, MLBB mauve shade. It can be worn casually in the day as well as for the evening. It matches really well with NYX Slim Lip Liner in Mauve. LOVE!

Euro Trash: This color looks peachy on most online swatches, but on me, it comes out as more of a brown. I like it, but it's not a lip color one could wear all the time.

Natural: A vibrant, pink color that's suitable for weekend looks. Slightly too loud to wear to work.

Tea Rose: A pretty rose pink shade that is very close to Natural, but is slightly cooler. Again, this color slightly too loud to wear to work.

If you are looking for a smudge free type of matte than this is not the lipstick for you. When it states that it is matte it means that is not a shiny formula or satin formula. On my lips it is a matte finish but if i eat or drink it will transfer. I love the colors and am hoping to see more come out for this range because i do like formula (think Maybelline matte's but better because it does not have that horrid smell that the Maybelline one has) Reason why i do not give it a 5 out of 5 is the packaging. i have the shades natural and whipped caviar and for some reason they packaging is faulty on those. Like it does not lock in the down position so it sometimes turns itself up (when it is in my purse) and the bullet gets damaged. I also have maison and butter and that does not happen so i know its not all of the them but 2 out 4 is enough for me to have an issue.

I love a good matte lip and while I also love NYX, I wasn't blown away by the product. I have the color Aria which is a beautiful deep plum in the tube but a softer pink on my lips. Hyperpigmented lips aside, I was hoping for more color payoff.

It's not super long lasting and while it did mattify down, I didn't get the same stay put feeling I got with their Lip Lingerie lip cream. It's about the same ending result of the soft matte lip cream, it stays slippery for a bit then mattifies down and stays for a bit. It'll still move a bit when eating or drinking but it doesn't feel sticky which is always a plus with matte lipsticks. 

I wish it was better but for a cheap lipstick, I'm satisfied and the bright color was well worth it, even if it's not the same as the tube!

The biggest issue I've had with these lipsticks are that the colors are not true to what is seen on the website (whether it be Ulta or nyxcosmetics). I have four of these in Eden, Perfect Red, Siren, and one of the pink shades, Natural maybe? I like the formula of the reds (Eden and Perfect red) and they're a nice matte without being super drying. Siren (a purpley berry), on the other hand, is not matte and has an almost frosty finish? It drags as you apply it and it's my least favorite dark lipstick I have. Natural is a pretty color that looks good on my skin, and it is more of a cross between a cream finish and a matte finish. These are relatively matte overall, but if you're looking for an ultra-matte, these aren't for you.

These lipsticks are so comfortable! They're definitely matte if you blot off some of the excess product, but I find that this is the case with many matte lipsticks. However, I love them both matte and with a slight sheen. I have 4 of these, my favorite shade being Aria, they are my most favorite "drugstore" lipsticks I own. The pigmentation is amazing, and the product lasts from sun-up to sun-down! I experienced slight feathering with them on their own, so I always use a lip primer underneath (and sometimes a lipliner, I often times use an angled brush to line my lips with these lipsticks because the shades I own are so unique!) I'm hoping to pick up more shades in the future, because their shade range is also incredible!

These lippies do not get enough attention. In today's beauty world we focus on lippies that have a strong brand name, however we fail to realize that lipsticks like these have just as much pigmentation and lasting power. I bought these on a whim when I was at ulta, and after I bought one I bought them all! The color pay off is incredible. One swipe and you are set! The lighter shades are pigmented just as much as the darker shades. These bad boys also have a good long lasting power. When you eat foods that are oil based they can rub off on the inner ring, other than that they stay put! Go out and buy youself some of these babies.

Quick tip: Ulta usually has them for buy one get one 1/2 off! That's a steal!

They the best of the best !!I love love this lipstick!!! works great and stays on without smearing ...

My mom have bought three matte lipsticks in Strawberry Daiquiri, Euro Trash, & Street Cred three weeks ago and received it a few days before my birthday. It was my gift from my mother to me ! I must admit I was so excited to see it in my hands because this purchase was my first time to try NYX cosmetics. Therefore, my conclusion is I absolutely love these matte lipsticks! They're affordable, very pigmented, and doesn't bleed when I am outside. Also, these lipsticks didn't flake or scrunch up on me due to my lips being exfoliate beforehand. So I'm happy with my purchase, thanks NYX!

These are life. They are creamy and hydrate well. I like them more than the Matte creme, as I find these to be more mystifying than the creme. i actually find the cremes a bit on the glossy side. If mixing, I would use these as a base layer since I don't think they mix well with other consistencies.

Definitely long lasting, and doesn't really rub off on your teeth. At least I haven't noticed 🙈 I bite my lips quite a lot, so I do retouch, but it's usually after my day at work when I'm off to my second job. 😞

Worth the $5/6 I spent. I bought mine at Macy's Backstage, but have also bought NYX at their actual store, Target, and CVS. No matter where I went it was about the same price.

The price is reasonable, but is this a good lipstick? I'm obsessed with the color but don't want to waste money on something that will dry my lips out or just not hold up on a busy day.
