NYX Matte Lipstick in Perfect Red Swatch

2:30:00 PM

I know that everyone likes the NYX round lipsticks simply because they are affordable and very pigmented.  But I wasn't that crazy about them because they melt easily and the smell bothers me sometimes. So when the NYX Matte Lipsticks came out, I was really excited to try them out.

I have been looking for a beautiful red lipstick for a while now so while I was looking at NYX Matte Lipstick Swatches I saw "Perfect Red". It does look like a perfect red lipstick so I quickly scoured local online shops and found it.

What I like about this lipstick is that, the longer it stayed on my lips the more it became matte. Even though it's matte, this doesn't dry out my lips.  It's highly pigmented too. I'm glad that this performs way better than their round lipsticks. I'm also quite happy about the smell, it's barely noticeable.

NYX Matte Lipstick in Perfect Red is really pretty blue based red, it's not too bright nor too dark, it's just right. This has a decent staying power. It stays on my lips until my next meal or drink.

I like the packaging as well, it looks sleek. The plastic surface is Matte and they left the center part transparent so that the actual shade of the lipstick can be seen.

Lastly, the lipstick tube goes all the way in when twisted, so it is easier to close and I won't have to worry about hitting the product with the cap.

Overall, this is a pretty good lipstick. I bought it for only 270 pesos from French Macaroons multiply shop. I would recommend this to matte lipstick lovers out there. ^_^

Until next time.

    1. nope, Ruby Woo is much brighter than this... Perfect Red is more like Russian Red...hehe
