Review for: Alabama more...
I. LOVE. These. Lipsticks. I have many shades, but I'll stick with "Alabama" to review, as it is one of my favorite reds.

The packaging is what you'd expect from NYX, nothing mind blowing but it's fine for the price. The product is what really shines. The lipstick is shaped like a typical bullet lipstick, which makes application simple enough. Alabama glides on smoothly and is opaque with one swipe. This stuff has a demi-matte finish, but it isn't drying to my chronically dry lips, which I truly appreciate. It's certainly not transfer proof, but it wears for a very long time. You will need to reapply after meals, but it reapplies wonderfully.

The NYX Matte Lipsticks only get 4/5 stars for one reason: the shades can be hit or miss. I find the lighter shades can tend to be streaky and not apply as smoothly as the darker ones. I recommend going to Ulta and swatching the colors before you buy if they have testers available.

Overall, this is one of my favorite drugstore matte lipstick formulas. If you're looking for a beautiful red, pick up Alabama! I highly recommend it!

Review for: Aria, Maison, Spirit more...
Pro: Wear time, formula, color, price
Con: *Shade in Spirit*

Before I start with the overall thoughts on this lipstick line, the shade Spirit is not for tan skin women. I felt like it looked like I just ate a powdered donut and didn’t wipe my lips.🤷🏻‍♀️

Other than that I have no other cons...

So just as it claims these lipsticks are a matte formula. With that being said I do not find them to be drying on the lips. I find that the colors have some intensity to them and last quite a long time. Also, they are not too difficult to remove in comparison to matte liquid lipsticks.

Review for: Dark Era, Spirit more...
For a cool price of 5 bucks, these matte lipsticks are pretty amazing!! They're extremely long-lasting, and if you've sufficiently moisturized your lips, they don't get cakey and flaky. I will say though that you have to touch it up throughout the day if you want it to remain looking fresh, but the reapplication is smooth and wonderful. 
Only thing about the shade Spirit is that be careful before buying it, because it was not very flattering on my tan skin tone, and looked like I had caked my lips with powder. 
Other than that, I really recommend it!

Review for: Strawberry Daiquiri more...
I really wanted to like this because of the price point and variety of colors. The color was quite opaque, especially for a drugstore lipstick. My issue was how drying it was. While it is a matte lipstick, this was more drying than my liquid matte lipsticks. If the color wore longer, I might have rated it higher but I get better wear time and less dryness from liquid lipsticks.

Review for: Eden more...
A nice blue toned red lipstick. This applies smoothly and is highly pigmented. It lasts long and is a bit difficult to remove entirely at the end of the day. This does require reapplication after lunch for a full day wear but with how easily this applies that shouldn’t be an issue.

To remove I did have to use a makeup remover wipe and my usual facial cleanser. There was some slight staining on my lips but that fades before bed.

This is one of the colors in this years NYX Advent Calendar.

Review for: Aria, Bloody Mary, Siren more...
I really enjoy my NYX matte lipstick. I got it as birthday gifts from a close friend. The lipsticks were in fact matte, which i LOVED. The wear time was great. I wore my lipstick for about 9 hours. They were creamy and moisturizing. I was surprised by how pigmented they were and how the color popped. Another thing i noticed is there was no transfer with this product. I’ve never used a NYX product before but I’d definitely consider trying more of their products in the future.

Review for: Euro trash, Whipped caviar more...
These matte lipsticks are one of the few that I would actually wear. It’s not super drying, has a great color payoff, and is very inexpensive. With a wide variety of colors, everyone is sure to find one that they would love. Depending on the color, it can stain your lips/face so be careful when applying the lip color. This product holds up pretty well against food and drinks. Overall, this is a pretty good product and I would recommend it. NYX Matte Lipstick

Review for: Up the Bass more...
For the most part I'm a pretty dedicated liquid lipstick user, but these Nyx Matte lipsticks are one of the few traditional bullet lipsticks I still find myself reaching for on a regular basis. They have the perfect combination of a matte finish with a creamy moisturizing consistency that's absolutely irresistible! In terms of wear and quality I'd say they match Mac's matte lipstick formula (my other favorite bullet lipstick) but with a slightly creamier formula that makes them easier to apply and less prone to tugging. Because of this softer consistency I find that they don't last quite as long as Mac or other comparable matte lipsticks; they are a bit prone to fading unevenly and you will need to reapply after eating or drinking, or every few hours after long wear in order to keep the same look. But overall I think this formula has a pretty good tradeoff of amazing comfort with decent longevity and wear.

The NYX matte lipsticks are my favorite! My all time favorite lipstick is from this line in the color Euro Trash, I always receive so many compliments on itZ I also like spirit which is a paler nude. These last a long time and don’t have much transfer plus they go on really nice and for a matte lipstick there is no drying! I also have a really hot pink called summer breeze which isn’t great on me but a nice color !

Review for: Tea rose more...
This lipstick is my fave! I’ve tried sooo many different lip products from drugstore to high end, and I honestly love this one. It applies smoothly and is well pigmented. It never bleeds into the fine lines and it wears evenly. The wear time is amazing for a lippie this price - it lasts for 4-6 hours with no touch ups! Plus, the shade tea rose is so beautiful and goes well with most any skin tone. 💕

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.
