The application of this lipstick isn't as good as others because I find that it drags and feels initially quite dry. But once it is on it doesn't feel drying at all and wears very well throughout the day. I will continue to use and enjoy it, but it doesn't top my Maybelline lipsticks. I would recommend picking this up if there is a particular shade that you are desperate for, but other than that there are plenty of other lipsticks that are similar to this at a similar price point

I am in my late teens/early 20's with acne/problem, fair tone skin and hazel eyes. My hair is blonde, oily with fine texture.
I love love love this lipstick!!! Super matte, longwearing, pigmented and it doesnt dry out your lips! Im not a big fan of liquid lipsticks and struggle to find a truely matte lipstick, but my search is over! I got the shade duchess which is the most beautiful grey/mauve/burgundy colour! It is so easy to apply and feels really smooth on my lips! Definitly a hidden gem in nyx lippy range anf i will def be buying more colours!

I am in my late 20's/early 30's with combination, fair tone skin and blue eyes. My hair is red, oily with fine texture.
I've been let down by NYX lingerie range that really dry your lips out, however, ive to say that this matte lipstick is worth its wait in gold.
Easy to apply, stays put (even when eating and drinking unlike the lingerie range) and the colours are really pigmented - a great little buy that gives luxury matte lipsticks a run for their money.

I am in my mid 30's with dry, fair tone skin and blue eyes. My hair is dark brown, dry with coarse texture.
I got this lipstick in the colour duchess, it just glides on, no effort needed and feels so rich and smooth on your lips. I can't wait to buy more! Feels like high end lipstick but it's so cheap for the quality.
