NYX Matte Lipstick Review and Swatches. Perfect Red
I like wearing a red lipstick because it makes my day special. I don’t wear it everyday, so I didn’t want to pay a fortune for a lipstick and was looking for something inexpensive, but good. After reading reviews, I bought NYX Matte Lipstick in Perfect Red. Honestly, it was beyond my expectations.
If you are interested, I also have a review about NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp.
NYX Matte Lipstick has a black case; the material feels a bit cheap, but that’s OK. The lipstick is made in Taiwan and is cruelty free. It has a slight odor, but you cannot smell it when the product is on your lips.
Pigmentation and Texture
NYX Matte Lipstick is pigmented very well. It’s easy to apply. I usually apply two layers on my lips. The texture feels a bit creamy. The lipstick is not drying.
If I don’t eat or drink, I wear the lipstick for 3 or 4 hours, and the color doesn’t fade or smudge. Once I ate oily pizza while wearing NYX Matte lipstick, and the result was that the color faded but not completely. I was able to apply a new layer, and it looked good.
NYX doesn’t claim this product being long lasting. I think that wearing it for 3-4 hours is a pretty good result.
Shade and Swatches
NYX describes Perfect Red as “bright blue-toned red.” Indeed, it has blue undertones, and the shade looks cool. I made the swatches using natural light and no flash.
If you are looking for a red lipstick with orange undertones, I may recommend Pure Red from NYX. And if you are interested in a cooler shade, take a look at Eden from NYX. NYX Perfect Red is matte, but it will not give your lips a velvet finish.
I like how NYX Matte Lipstick looks on my lips. It feels comfortable and not drying. I remove it using an eye makeup remover from Loreal. I would not recommend using micellar water because it dries your lips.
10/10. NYX Matte Lipstick is a good product. It’s not expensive, and it has a wide range of shades. Actually, I read that the quality of shades differes. Some of them are not that great, but I definitely recommend that you try Perfect Red.
