I bought this lippie in the TRICKSTER shade

Price: $6

Quantity: 2.4 (not much though)

The product is really small. The stick is thin in comparison with the MAC lippie.

I’m afraid to presume how long it will go if I use it daily and rather often.


  • the product is unscented

  • it glides on my lips very pleasantly and fuss-free

  • it applies with a thick and even layer

  • the textures is matte as stated

And here are a few things that turned out to be rather surprising for me:

  • The product is very comfortable while wear. The texture is matte but the wear is so comfortable. No comparison with the Retro Matte Lipsticks by MAC, and there isn’t any other the same in wear even by NYX. Usually all the products are devilishly drying.

  • The staying power is bang on! Before going to my job I apply this product over my lips and touch up only in the afternoon, even though I drink tea and coffee in between. The lipstick will even survive some snacks.

  • I didn’t get success trying to wipe off the product with a tissue. It’s difficult to remove just like MAC lipsticks.

  • No cracks, clumps or anything on my lips even after several hours of wearing. The product is easy to layer and touch up if needed.

  • No teeth staining

The lippie is wearable. I can wear it from morning till night. I’m head over heels with this NYX Full Throttle Lipstick and I’ll definitely try out some other shades as well.


Well, this lippie is a great dupe for MAC Retro Mattes, maybe even better! If I was to assess MAC lipsticks, I’d give them 4 stars and this NYX products gets 5 stars from me!
