Since I have quite a big collection of lipsticks and lipglosses, I presume that I can speak about them endlessly long.
In my everyday makeup I can leave out eyeshadows, powder, but I always do my lips whether it’s a lipgloss or bright-colored lipstick. My rule is that my lips must be covered with something - that way I feel comfortable and I'm used to that:)
Today I’ll tell you about a wonderful lipstick from the NYX VELVET MATTE Collection in MIAMI NIGHTS.
Dress your lips in decadent color with our Velvet Matte Lipstick--a luxurious new lip color that glides right on and never feels dry. Housed in an elegant soft-touch case, each standout shade is a fashion statement in itself.
How to apply:
You can apply the product itself or use a lip contour pencil. You should always moisturize lips before applying matte lipsticks or use a primer.
The product is great not only because of its quality, but also because of its color. I fell in love with it at first sight ❤
The lipstick was sealed in a cover up tape and it was in a beautiful black tube.
Since the lipstick is matte, the packaging’s imitating this matte design which looks great and stylish.
The color of the lipstick is seen through the translucent top, which allows you to see the lipstick colors while choosing.
The lipstick itself appears up when you turn round the bottom part, we are all familiar with such mechanism.
The scent is neutral.
There are 12 shades in the line, and I think that I have the best one.
It’s a madly beautiful pink, not actually fuchsia color, but at the same time it’s not lurid. Such a shade is really attention-grabbing. For me, the color is perfect and I always use it to complete my look.
Even if you’re dressed in boring grey or black clothes, this lipstick will turn your total look upside down. It’s like a final touch in every look.
Texture-wise the product is very pleasant. It applies easily, it doesn’t flow out the contour, and the most important thing is that it doesn’t dry my lips at all!!! Sometimes it can define the peeling parts on the lips, but if you use a moisturizer and exfoliating product, you won’t face this problem.
Swatches under different lighting
I think this is my ideal lipstick, it’s the most optimal option I should say.
I’ve tried dozens of matte lipsticks, and in many cases I had something to find fault with. And I was almost ready to accept the fact that each and every matte lipstick would dry out my lips, when I found out that there are some lucky exceptions:)
It’s absolutely great on my lips and I’m pretty delighted with the time it stays on. For quite a while I don’t touch up my lip makeup, if I’m wearing this lipstick. Actually I do a bit, if I eat or drink something.
The pigmentation is great, and even if I wipe the product away with wet wipes, my lips remain pink, not so bright pink, but still. So to wash it away I use makeup remover. I wipe it away with micellar water.
There’s an existing opinion that matte lipstick can hide your natural lip volume, and I can say that it’s partly true. But if we speak about the NYX lipstick, the texture and the color of the product give my lips gentle volumizing effect, despite all the stereotypes.
I simply can’t take my eyes off the mirror when I’m wearing this lipstick.
I don’t know if I would have been so much glad, if I'd chosen another color, but here I’m 100% raving about it.
This is the case when I bought a product once and I would buy it again and again.
I've read some interesting reviews of other colors and I want to try them too. I hope that they’ll be as great as my new precious pink lipstick!
By the way, I forgot to mention how great the lipstick shade defines my eye color. When I wear it I receive so much attention! I’m charmed by the magic of the lipstick, and I can’t help, but admire this gorgeous product:)
