NYX Matte Lipsticks (Swatches and First Impression)



I purchased these new lippies from Cherry Culture during their 4th of July sale and just received them a few days ago. It took a little while for shipping and the tracking number they gave me didn't work since I wasn't able to track anything with it. Eventually it arrived so that is what matters the most.

NYX just very recently launched these Matte lipsticks and my curiosity really wanted to test these babies out because for I sort of have a huntch that I will like these for some reason, lol. Anyways, I have not put these to the test yet so this is not a review but more of first impression with some swatches. Once I have a better feel for these, I will do a review with swatches on my lips/face, etc...




First off, the packaging looks and feel cheap! Oh well. The case has a matte finish also, which is silimar to that of MAC.
These lippies retails for $4.99. I also bought a Milani blush with my Cherry Culture order. The great thing about this purchase is that I used my rewards points toward this order so I was able to get $14.00 off and I only ended up paying  $13.50 after shipping was added. I did not want to spend $40 + for the free shipping because there was nothing else I really wanted. But anyways, to be honest, I totally forgot about my rewards points and when I looked at how much I could redeem it for I was quite excited! So if you buy a lot from Cherry Culture or if you think of buying from them in the future, keep that in mind and don't forget to redeem them.


The shades I purchased are...

  • Tea Rose - a dusty/mauvy rose
  • Sweet Pink - A medium fuschia
  • Sierra - it's like a hybrid between coral, pink, and brown.
  • Summer Breeze - medium blue-based pink



When I swatched them, the formula is very pigmented and creamy without feeling slippery. They have a very slight fruity scent that reminds me of Estee Lauder's lipsticks...So far I like and I am happy with the colors I picked and this is pretty much all I can tell you at this point so I will keep you posted once I get to use these a little more.

Have you tried any of these new NYX product yet? Would they be of any interest to you?
