    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Matte Lipstick:

    For a newbie in red lipstick, I tried Perfect Red, Merlot and Alabama. All great colors (I am Mac-NW30), feels light on your lips,applies so smooth and doesn't dry the lips at all. The color payoff and finish are excellent too, and it lasts long on the lips if you don't eat greasy food. The packaging could have been better though as there is a chance of nicking it while closing.Overall great lipstick

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Matte Lipstick:

    My all time favorite lipstick. I have so many shades from neutral to VERY bright and they're all wonderful. They're a tad drying but any matte lipstick is going to dry the lips out. That being said, it's very manageable and the color is long lasting. Plus for the price it really can't be beat.

    Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Matte Lipstick:

    I love matte lippies, and these are very very matte! They are highly-pigmented, bold colors, which I love! These can be a bit drying, but I will sometimes use a clear or similar-colored gloss on top for a quick fix.

    I love the color, I love matte colors in general even though they sometimes look to dry. This lipstick is great and goes on a bit smoother than most matte lipsticks but after a while my lips just look dry and cracked.

              Comments about Nyx Cosmetics Matte Lipstick:

              i purchased the color natural and i fell in love. SO much i bought five tubes. Its the perfect color for olive skin tones and it looks like your just making your natural lip color look even better! With any matte lipstick, its always good to prep your lips before applying, or you will look patchy and have dry spots. First do a small sugar scrub or use your toothbrush to brush your lips of any dead skin. Then apply a small amount of a waxy chapstick (i like niveas). Then apply the NYX. Perfect every time, and the color is pigmented and true all day and night.

              • Q:

                I'm looking for a warm based wine color lipstick, but not sure if the nyx matte's have anything like it. Any suggestions? I have nyx lipstick in Alabama but it wasn't the wine shade I was looking for. I'm also looking for a nude that has a pink hint so I don't look washed out. Any help is appreciated.

                  A:

                  These lipsticks are highly pigmented with a matte finish, so for young makeup beginners, we recommend neutral/pink shades for the most natural, "school-friendly" look. Try shades Nude (mid-tone peach), Hippie Chic (yellow-toned pink), or Couture (light pink).

                  You may also like NYX Cosmetics Butter Gloss, which features a semi-sheer, high shine finish and a heavenly scent:

                I am looking for a great red. You have three and I cannot figure out which one is best to buy. I am in my 50' and have a light olive complexion- Italian, hazel brown eyes. Also I am not about what are the benefits , problems with a Matte lipstick.
                How can I tell which of the three is best?

                  If you're seeking a classic red lip, choose Perfect Red (Item #:2242461), a bright blue-toned red. Pure Red (Item #:2242459), a bright red-orange, is also very flattering for those with olive skin. This lipstick features a long wearing formula that glides on smoothly and provides great color payoff.
