NYX Matte Lipstick

Hello everyone! I hope you’re having a lovely day!

Today I’ll be reviewing six of the lipsticks in the NYX matte lipstick collection. These lipsticks have a matte finish as the name implies. They are priced around $6.00 making it readily available to fit anyone’s budget.  This product has a variety of shades ranging from creamy neutrals to bold, bright colors.  Something about a vivid matte lip really draws my attention and these are my go to lipsticks to achieve the look.

You can purchase the lipsticks on the NYX Cosmetics website or ULTA.


  • These lipsticks apply easily providing rich color upon the first application.
  • The lipsticks as they appear in the bullet are translated exactly on to the lips in the same shade and intensity.
  • The packaging is great! It is lightweight, simple, and has a clear panel that allows you to see the color of the actual lipstick when choosing it out.
  • They are incredibly long lasting! I have had them on for hours at a time where I had something to eat, drink, and patted them with a napkin and I still had the pigment on my lips.
  • The lipsticks are truly matte with no shine as promised by the name of the product.
  • The rich creamy formula feels comfortable on the lips.
  • They are affordable making it accessible to everyone of varying budgets.


  • Due to the matte texture of the lipstick, it can make your lips feel a tad dry throughout the day if you don’t properly moisturize them.
  • Since the colors are richly pigmented, upon removal you may be left with a temporary stain of the color.
  • If you do not properly exfoliate and moisturize your lips this lipstick will highlight all the dry areas especially the lighter colors: Strawberry Daiquiri and Indie Flick
  • Be careful to apply the lipstick slowly as any shape imperfections can easily be noted.

Final Thoughts and Rating:

Overall I give this product an A!

I think it’s a fantastic, matte lipstick at a great price. They have become one of my favorite lipsticks and matte formulations. They provide a wide variety of colors to choose from and, based on the six I own, are all highly pigmented and true to color. The rich creamy texture makes them rather comfortable to wear despite the matte formula accusations of being too dry. I highly recommend it!

Quick Tips on Application: 

  • Exfoliate your lips and apply your favorite lip balm before doing your makeup to allow the balm to fully moisturize your lips.
  • Apply the lipstick straight from the bullet to achieve a vibrant color.
  • Make sure to blot your lips with a tissue to remove any excess.

Until next time. Take care!
