How to Use
Rated 4.29 out of 5 stars
This is a really good basic lipstick. I have five different colors and they all perform well. I did look at other peoples' swatches before buying to make a more informed decision. They smell lightly sweet, got on easily, and stay put for a good amount of time. I really appreciate the brown-based reds, as blue-based reds always look hot pink on me. I also love the grey-based trend! Along with what I own, I bought Euro Trash for my sister and it really looks like the perfect nude.
Honestly, I was super excited when I ordered these; I bought Nude, Pale Pink, and Hippy Chic.
Every single one of those shades did not even come close to the colors that are pictured here.
** I've included pictures of all the shades below, in various lighting as well. **
-Hippy Chic was much MUCH darker than the picture, with extreme orange tones in it.
-The "Nude" was honestly not even a nude color at all, it was pretty much just straight up peach.. very.. very peachy/orange toned and very close the the Hippy Chic shade.
-The Pale Pink was pretty dark as well, not pale and a bit warmer than I expected for a blue-toned lipstick?
The lipstick itself is smooth for the most part (I keep my lips super moisturized haha), and its very opaque and doesn't dry out my lips, but unfortunately all of the colors are completely unwearable for me..
I've ALWAYS loved NYX cosmetics, and absolutely love their lipstick, but i was honestly very disappointed with these three (maybe I somehow got a defective batch? who knows..)
I'll be sticking to Mac when it comes to light shades and matte lipstick :(

This is a great lipstick and affordable.!

Not as matte looking as I'd like, as it has a slight waxy sheen. Tugs a little until it warms up. Doesn't feather on me. I was hoping this would read more red, but my undertones amped the purple so it's more of a warm plum vs the more burgundy I see when I just look at the lipstick itself. Overall a nice lipstick, and honestly if I'd known how it would look on me I wouldn't have bought a seperate dark purple in the same order. Transfers, but doesn't get all splotchy and uneven when it does. Lasts a full 9 hours, although I do touch up occasionally since I drink water/coffee all day. So YMMV a bit. For reference I'm fair cool/neutral (although possibly olive/cool yellow, Idk.)
Banana from San Diego
I love this color, it was perfect for me! I will def be buying more as back ups. I can't describe this, it's like a brick red, very neutral, can be blended out to a beautiful blotted finish, amazing!

I love this product.

I've been experimenting with bolder colors. My daughter uses Nyx products and I was impressed with them. This matte lipstick wears well and I love the warm pink. It's a great spring/summer color. "Audrey" falls between bubble gum pink and fuschia.
Janet from Hazlet NJ
I was looking for a similar color but it wasn't part of your availability. The product color is darker than in the picture/color ref online. I usually go to the store but under COVID-19 we can't.
Good Everyday from South Carolina
This definitely is not my favorite lipstick I have ever purchased; but for the price it is excellent! I was honestly impressed with the formula. I ordered the color Euro Trash and it was a very pretty color. I will purchase more colors since it is such a good price. However, I feel this is a better everyday lipstick instead of something for a nice date night.
Kann from Alabama
I like the lipstick but the color is wrong for my skin tone.
Lil B from Winston-Salem NC
I just don't think I can use matte lipsticks
Amanda from Georgia
The color "Euro Trash" is a perfect dupe for Charlotte Tilburry Pillow Talk lipstick. The formula is not a dupe, but the color is spot on!
Avocado from OH
Great smooth color, but does dry out lips, smears, and wears off
AW from Bluffton
I love love this lip color! Perfect wear! Not drying on lips
NO from Alabama

Brit from Texas
Lipstick smudges and looks like a hot mess. I was truly disappointed and didn't want to be.
Caroline from South Portland, Maine
The first lip product I ever bought was this lipstick in the shade "Strawberry Daiquiri". I buy a new tube every time I run out because it's that good. The color is a warm medium pink, which suits my skin tone(warm and fair) really well. The formula is amazingly creamy for a matte lipstick, and it doesn't dry too much throughout the day. It's not transfer-proof, and you'd have to reapply throughout the day, but I still give this 5 stars because those things aren't really a problem for me.
Anne from Sacramento, CA
I was kind of skeptical about how the shade Alabama would look but ohmygod it is the most perfect red. I've never been a huge red lipstick wearer because I didn't think it suited me but this color is so so good and flatters basically any look. It's super creamy and dries matte but not overly dry. 11/10! Perfect! My boyfriend kept complimenting it and he never notices makeup lol
Mia Aida from Somewhere
If you have any cracks in your lips it settles in them and the application is not completely even, especially with the darker colors. It feels alright though and you're getting what you pay for even though there are better cheap matte lipsticks out there.
ali from Ca
I love all the choices of shades. I have up the bass (?) and get compliments every time. Dont expect all day wear but for the price considering buying again. Transfers a lot which is a downside for me.
Jessy from Lakeland
Ok so I purchase up the bass I think that's what it's called the purple one. And it needs a lipliner it's very comfortable on the lips but will slip and slide if you don't wear a lipliner.
klm73190 from Louisiana
not true to the color shown as "sample", not a smooth application, didn't last long
Maria from Lady Lake,Florida
It looks good
Maria from Lady Lake
It looks good when I put it on
Kay from Blank
I thought that you should put on chapstick at the beginning of your makeup routine. In the end, your lips will be hydrated enough and you can apply the lipstick. I used chapstick because the formula is so matte.
Sexymama118 from McAllen, TX
I bought this lipstick in Whipped Caviar. It's the perfect pinky nude and a perfect dupe for MAC Mehr. It's drying though, so I apply some Chapstick before I apply the lipstick
