Lipstick Post: NYX Matte Lipstick in Angel




Vacationing was fun but one thing I missed was using makeup. This time around I left my usual paraphernalia's and kept it minimal with a cheek tint, liquid bronzer and face powder. Barely there makeup. It made me miss a lot of my colorful ones at home!

Many have asked what lipstick I used in this review post and I figured it's high time I share it with you!

NYX Matte Lipstick in Angel

Surprise, it's NYX Matte Lisptick in Angel!

I know, it's yet another NYX lipstick. But can you blame me? NYX do have nice selections when it comes to their colored lippies. I was prepared to write off NYX Matte Lipsticks after having my fill with their Soft Matte Lip Creams. Boy I didn't know know I was in for some treat with these.

Compared to the Black Label and their Round Lipsticks, the NYX Matte Lipstick is more pigmented. The shade glides on smoothly. Best of all, it is matte but not too entirely drying on the lips. It was a good thing I didn't close any doors. Had I not been more adventurous with my makeup choices, I would have missed out a lot on this.

But I also noticed is that I don't have an exact shade like this one among my liptstick army. But NYX RL in Spellbound and Colour Collection in Angel Berry came to a close second and third.

NYX Matte Lipstick in Angel appears pink on the photos but it has a bit more reddish tint on it and depending on the lighting can appear quite coral.

I notice two things though, that the Matte Lipstick (3.3oz) looks shorter compared to my other bullet lisptick and that it's not as long wearing s claims to be. It takes my next meal or drink for the color to fade a bit. But not the kind of fading that prompts me to retouch asap. Still, I think they can do away with this claim.

Tips:

Although most matte lipsticks I encounter are drying, NYX Matte ones isn't as torturous to the lips compared. Better prep your puckers with your favorite lip balm prior to using. Better yet, prep them already a night before (or do this ritual nightly) to prevent further drying and chapping of the lips.

Make your matte lippies last longer by applying a layer of lipliner similar and closest to the shade of matte lisptick you are using, filling in the lines of your lips.

Take step further in ensuring a matte lips all day long by doing the following. Apply your lipstick 3x but in between, blot excess. This seals in the shades more into your lips.

I also used the Beauty Pro Cosmetics Sweet and Smokey Palette for this classic neutral makeup look. :)
