I'm actually on my second tube of this lipstick and I purchased the shade "sierra". It's a gorgeous colour, it gives you that "my lips but better" look. It's a pinky toned lipstick. It's really ,really creamy and it actually seems to moisturize your lips rather than drying them out like most matte lipsticks will do. However I will say I would recommend using a lip liner or a lip brush on the edges of your lips. I found my lipstick can't seem to get into the edges 75-80% of the time,but it still does get the job done and fill most of the space. The packaging is not the best but it's a drugstore brand ? What do you expect for £7. Will try in another colour to see if my opinion changes but so far I am in love! My fav lippie x

I am in my late teens with sensitive, light tone skin and unknown eyes. My hair is unknown, unknown with unknown texture.
Purchased in shades Pure Red, Siren & Euro Trash. Good Matte lipstick like other NYX lipsticks I own, I do find the formula to be a little too dry on the lip, but it lasts really well. I've actually repurchased the shade Euro Trash, it's one of my go-to favorite lip shades!

I tried this lipstick in the shade ‘Eurotrash’ as a dupe for MACs ‘Velvet Teddy.’ I really like the formula, it’s creamy but matte. The longevity is great too however I do recommend a lipliner. I found the packaging quite cheap and tacky: definitely not a sexy lipstick for your handbag! But the product itself makes up for that. As for the colour, it is a good dupe for Velvet Teddy, however after trying both, this shade is way too brown toned and didn’t suit me at all.

I am in my late 20's/early 30's with combination, fair tone skin and hazel eyes. My hair is medium brown, combination with coarse texture.
I have this in the shade 'Whipped Caviar'. It is the perfect shade to match my natural lip colour. I have been using this for my 'everyday work look', and it lasts for a whole shift without any problems (approx. 7 hours but I would recommend a lip liner). I love the fact it is matte whilst still feeling creamy throughout the day (it doesn't seem to dry out and crumble).The pigmentation is brilliant, an excellent formula. I couldn't ask for much more from an every day lipstick! I will definitely be taking a look at more NYX matte lipstick's! I highly recommend!

Love this matte formula of lipsticks, still very smooth and creamy but does dry within a few minutes and it lasts quite well nothing out of this world though. It's very easy to apply on top of without it breaking up and crumbling. Personally if I want a matte lip product I'd pick a liquid lipstick over a matte lipstick as I feel they create sharper lines and make my lips look fuller.

I like the sheer colour of this matte lipstick and the way it applies, the only thing i would say is that after a couple of hours, it starts to dry out on my lips and make them appear cracked, even if i have applied lip balm before.

I have the shade Eden and it is the perfect red on me. Lasts well. Not drying. Comfortable. Pigmented. Creamy and easy to apply despite lack of skill. The product does tranfer onto my teeth frequently. Does fade but can be topped up easily. Would recommend. Can't wait to try more shades.

Received a nude colour for my birthday and it is now one of my favourite lipsticks. Perfect for a casual look, particularly when blended with my purple matte lip crayon on the edges of my lips. Colour lasts a few hours but fades a little. Would definitely recommend.
