I saw NYX Matte Lipstick in Merlot online and wanted to try these myself. Not able to find these in Sephora, Saket, I asked my friend to get me Merlot and Sweet Pink from Dubai.
Price – $6. Approx Rs. 360
NYX Matte Lipsticks are bright and highly pigmented. A single swipe provides amazing coverage. They are available in about 30 shades, from nudes to reds.
NYX Matte Lipstick – Merlot is a berry red shade. Perfect for winters!
NYX Matte Lipstick – Sweet Pink is a vibrant cool toned pink. Totally in love with this color at the moment.
The formula glides on smoothly and doesn’t drag at all. However, as is the case with many matte formulas, I guess the lighter shades might drag and not apply as smooth.
Because these are matte, they last longer than non-matte lipsticks. You can easily expect at least a minimum of 5 hours of wear. I like that these are non-drying and they actually feel comfortable on the lips, unlike many matte formulas I have tried before. And it also doesn’t settle into fine lines or highlight lip texture issues.
It doesn’t transfer easily and yet at the same time, it’s easy to remove.
Amazing formula, great pigmentation and awesome price… What’s not to love here! Waiting to get my hands on more of these now.. Love, Jas 🙂
