NYX Matte Lipstick Audrey : Photos, Review, Swatch & LOTD

I am not a fan of matte lipsticks nor I am comfortable with their drying formula. Also, a couple of matte lipsticks that I tried in the past sucked up the little moisture left in my lips, leaving my lips cracked and bleeding. So matte lipsticks have always been a night mare to me. My little cousin loves matte lipsticks and she got one from NYX recently. She asked me to give it a try saying it is not drying and at the same time creamy too. I was curious and tried it on me.

The NYX matte lipsticks comes in a plain black packaging with the color of the lipstick seen in the middle of the tube. In the tube the shade 'Audrey' looks more deep where as on my lips it looks as a pure baby pink shade. The shade is however too light for me and would better suit light to medium skin tones. The formula is very creamy and glides on my lips like butter. Being a matte lipstick I never expected it to be so creamy. About the drying part, I wouldn't call these absolutely non drying but these are definitely far better than the other long staying matte lipsticks in the market. It did make my lips dry in less than an hour and I had to wipe it off. However my cousin says the lipstick stays on her lips for good 5 hours ! Pigmentation is really good and it evens out my pigmented lips.

The Nyx matte lipsticks are definitely one of the good matte lipsticks I have tried so far but still it is drying on my lips ! I am definitely staying away from matte lipsticks until I find some with non drying formula. The shade 'Audrey' is pretty but too light on me. However, this would be a great buy for people who have well maintained supple lips and who would like to try matte lipsticks. Also matte lipstick lovers would love the NYX Matte lipsticks range.
