Here's another product that my best friend Megan got for me: a NYX Matte Lipstick in the shade Natural. I love matte lipsticks and was interested in trying this line, so thank you again Megan!
To begin, here's what the NYX website says about these lipsticks:
"NYX Matte Lipsticks are highly pigmented, richly formulated lipsticks that glide on smoothly, stay put and impart a non-glossy, high-fashion matte finish as they envelop lips in brilliant color."
I'm going to quickly talk about the packaging first! It's in a plain black tube, with a plastic middle allowing you to see the color which is convenient. Appearance wise, I don't hate or love it. Anyway, my problem is that the packaging is kind of cheap.. The cap comes off almost too easily, and the bullet always seems to swivel up on its own. The bullet also isn't that secure in the tube, and when twisted up, can wiggle around a bit.
Okay, onto the actual lipstick! Natural, as its name implies, is a natural shade that is a bit darker and a touch pinker then my natural lip color. It also has a bit of mauve to it.
The texture of this matte lipstick is almost creamy, and it applies really easily and smoothly, unlike other drier formulas that can drag on the lips. It's also comfortable to wear and I didn't experience any drying feeling as I continued to wear it. In short: I like it! It's not the most matte lipstick I've tried but still a really good one! I'd love to try another in the shade Indie Flick!
