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: Alabama, Other more...
Nyx lipsticks are definitely my go to's for affordable lipsticks. Their color range is almost unbeatable on top of the $4-$5 price tag. 

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!

Review for: Maison, Aria, 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: Nude more...
I bought this online on Ulta's website. I was so excited to receive this product and when I got it in the mail I was so disappointed. The color depicted on the website show a light nude color. The color it actually is, is a bright neon looking peach shade. It's not exactly a bad shade but it was not what I was looking for. However, this product is good quality wise. It has nice pigmentation and lasts decently long. The packaging feels quite cheap but it still works well. I would recommend this product, just be mindful of buying online, would recommend picking up in the store.

Review for: Crave more...
These and NYX matte Lip pencils are my favorite! Honestly, my favorite lip color product. Better than any of the higher end lipsticks I've tried, better than MAC and KvD. These soft mattes are underrated, and a great price. And a great range of colors! These are also the best nude shades I've found and they work so well on my skin

I had searched online for a cheaper dupe of Kat Con D's Lovecraft, and a few posts claimed that NYX Matte Lipstick in Cavier is a close copycat. The price point is amazingly cheap and I am overall pleased with the product. It goes on smooth and doesn't dry out my lips. The pigment is rich and lasts for a fair amount. In my case, the color swap wasn't 100% a dupe for Lovecraft, but it is a great lipstick all on its own

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: 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: Perfect Red more...
I was looking for a nice matte red lipstick, ideally, an alternative to MAC’s Ruby Woo. I bought this shade and another one called Pure Red. Both are beautiful shades. They aren’t completely transfer proof. What I like to do is use them as a base for a red liquid lipstick I have. It blends well and when the liquid lipstick begins the wear off, I still have this as a base on my lips!

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.
