I’ve had the NYX Matte Lipstick in 3 shades for a long while. I got them at CherryCulture.com when they were not readily available at Canadian retailers (haul here). Now, NYX can be found at Target locations across Canada, but in limited quantities. I still haven’t seen the famous butter glosses!
There are a lot of things I like about this lipstick. NYX Matte Lipstick comes in over 30 shades, making it difficult to choose just one. The colours are opaque and have a matte cream finish. The price is a bargain, too.
Other than that, this post will focus on lip swatches of Shocking Pink, Indie Flick and Pure Red.

NYX Matte Lipsticks are highly pigmented, richly formulated and long-wearing. The formula glides on smoothly and stays put in a matte finish. From Pure Red to Nude, Matte Lipsticks are available in a variety of rich shades. – NYX website
Shocking Pink indeed; this lipstick demands attention on the lips! I swoon over colours like these which as perfect for spring and summer.
Indie Flick reminds me of MAC Lady Danger, except you could get three of these for the price of one MAC lipstick. I wouldn’t recommend this shade for anyone who isn’t comfortable with getting looks – it’s extremely bright, just the way I like it.
Pure Red is just that, it’s a gorgeous retro matte red. The colour pay off was amazing with this one. This was even more opaque than the first two matte lipstick shade; you only need one swipe for bold colour!

I looked up swatches of the shades I wanted to purchase before taking the plunge – I recommend you do the same.
My biggest complaint about these Matte Lipsticks is the packaging, it’s ridiculously cheap. I have no problem with the look of the tube, but when you press the lipstick to the lips the lipstick pushes back into the tube. In short, I would pay more for a more stable tube .
Other than the packaging, this is a great matte lipstick that doesn’t feel that drying and offers opaque coverage. Bare in mind that if a matte lipstick is a true matte, especially at this price range, it will most likely make the lips feel dry (sorry, that’s life).
It has a thicker formula that the Soft Matte Lip Cream, but it’s worth mentioning that these are longer lasting.
What are your favourite matte lipsticks?
