- "The matte lipstick is a little more forgiving than the matte lip cream, it doesn't emphasize every tiny dry flake on your lips. The color is really saturated and opaque, lasts all day!" in 541 reviews

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!
I've purchased several shades, but 'Alabama' 'Chaos' and 'Fire' are my favorite. I think Chaos and Fire might be discontinued? But Alabama is very close to Chaos, and I have it in a lip liner as well.
They do need to be reapplied, but they are the most comfortable lipsticks to wear! It's hard not to go back to Target or Ulta and grab all the shades I can!
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.
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!
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.
