I've had the pleasure to purchase these NYX Matte lipsticks from Ulta for BOGO 50% off. Since I've already done a review on NYX matte lipsticks, I will not go into much details since I feel that the formula is pretty consistent between shades. If you'd like to read my original review, please click HERE and also view other shades.
Anyways, the NYX Matte lipsticks are among the best matte formula I've tried because they feel creamy and don't tug on your lips when you apply them. The pigmentation is also excellent. I especially love wearing matte lipsticks when I'm wearing bright colors on my eyes. It makes the overall look more appealing, IMO.
Swatches from left to right: Maison, Butter, and Indie Flick.
Maison is a chocolaty/mauve kind of shade. It definitely has that grey undertone to it. When I swatched it on my hand, I was like yikes! This is dark! However, when I tried it on the lips, I was like ok, I can make this work. This is probably a shade most people would overlook. I wasn't too sure about it at first but decided to give it a go anyways because I don't have a lot of browns in my lipstick stash.
Butter seemed like it would be a nice nudy light brown lippie. It also has a grey undertone to it so this may not be something some people might like. Sure it looks kinda pale on me but it's still better than my own lip color for sure.
Indie Flick makes me think of the bright bold lips Bollywood actresses tend to wear. It's a bright coral red. I think it's gorgeous and definitely something I would wear for an evening out. If you want to try a bright and bold color without dishing out too much money for it, I would recommend this shade.
Have you tried NYX Mattes? Which one is your favorite shade?
