Christmas with NYX

Hello everyone! I hope your enjoying your day and preparing for the holidays!

I know many of us, including myself, have been scrambling trying to find the perfect gifts for friends and family as Christmas is fast approaching. The NYX Matte Lip Creams not only are easily accessible, budget friendly, and pocket sized but also a wonderful option for stocking stuffers. If you are interested in knowing my thoughts then keep on reading!

The NYX Matte Lip Creams can be found on the NYX website, Ulta, and Target for about $6.00. There are 22 total shades in the line ranging from soft neutrals, brilliant reds, and vampy shades. Today I will be sharing my thoughts on four shades: Amsterdam, Ibiza, Prague, and Addis Ababa.

Amsterdam is a rich, orange-based red that glides on like a dream. I particularly love the doe foot applicator as I feel it gives me the precision I need especially when applying along the edges for a clean finish. This shade is wonderful and applies with full opacity adding some much needed zest to any look.

Ibiza is a warm coral shade that is perfect for the spring and summer seasons. It also applies with full pigmentation on the lips.

Prague is by far one of my favorite shades that I have tried. It is a rich berry shades with blends of mauve and purple. It is a wonderful option for someone who wants to dabble with purple lips, but may be unsure to try a full purple such as Revlon’s Matte Balm in Shameless. The creamy formula once again applies beautifully and extremely pigmented.

Addis Ababa

Addis Ababa is a playful barbie doll pink shade. I find this shade can apply a bit patchy on me at first whereas the other three glide on much more pigmented. I still find this shade lovely and universally flattering.

The one downside to consider is the matte formula tends to be drying and these are no exception. They can feel uncomfortable on the lips after extended use and will show dry patches if your lips aren’t properly exfoliated prior to the application.

Overall, I highly recommend picking up some shades as stocking stuffers! The large shade selection gives you plenty of options to find the perfect color. The rich pigmentation, creamy application, true matte finish, and shade range makes these products a must for any makeup enthusiast’s collection!

Which shade is your favorite?

Until next time. Take care!
