NYX Matte Lipstick in Shade ‘Bloody Mary’ and ‘Street Cred’, Review, Swatches

Hello Lovelies!

Hope you all are doing great! Today I am here with two lipstick shades from Nyx Matte collection, thanks to Nykaa.com for making NYX products easily available with much reasonable price that is cheaper than NYX products at Sephora. So soon after NYX has officially launched on Nykaa,com, I placed a tiny order.  Along with other stuffs, NYX matte lipsticks were in my wishlist for long, so got two shades from their matte range and after using these lipsticks for past few days, I thought of sharing my experience about these lipsticks with you guys.

So let’s jump into the review now.

What the product says:

Never go without a gorgeous Matte Lipstick! A smooth swipe of this NYX fan fave delivers highly pigmented, richly formulated and long-wearing colour. The formula glides on smoothly and stays put with a non-drying matte finish.

·         Highly pigmented colour.
·         Non-glossy, high-fashion matte finish.
·         Long lasting.

Great pigmentation, needed just one or two swipes to get the full coverage.

Staying Power:

Staying power is pretty decent, can be wearable up to 4 to 5 hours.

My Take on the product:

Swatches of 'Bloody Mary'

Swatches of 'Street Cred'

These lipsticks come in a black matte plastic tube packaging with black lipstick bullet inside and details about the brand and shade name is mentioned at the outer part of the tube. There is a transparent plastic part in the middle of the tube from where you could easily identify the lip shade. I found the retractable bullet is loosely bound and comes out very easily and the lipstick cap is not tightly attached, so not that handy packaging in my opinion.  Now coming to the texture, which is very creamy, not at all glossy but not powdery matte too, it gives a semi matte finish effect after applying into lips which doesn’t settle into lip lines, feels light on lips. It has non-drying formula and never emphasizes dry patches and lines of your lips. Though it settles into a semi matte finish, it bleeds a bit and transferable too so need to take care of that after applying them. These lipsticks are insanely pigmented! Just one or two swipes needed for an opaque intense finish with full coverage. Staying power is also very decent, can stay up to 4 to 5 hours and after that it starts fading. It can survive light snacks, drinks and light meals. ‘Bloody Mary’ is basically a very pretty reddish shade with fully pink undertones which can be suitable for almost every Indian skin tones.  ‘Street Cred’ is a very bright coral again with pink undertones which I think is pretty too and great for summer wear, suitable for fair to medium skin tones.


·         Creamy smooth texture
·         Non-drying formula
·         Feels light on lips
·         Intensely pigmented
·         Decent staying power
·         Beautiful shade range
·         Doesn’t emphasize lip lines


·         The formula bleeds and transfers too.
·         Packaging is not convenient in my opinion


Overall these lipsticks are having very creamy texture, non-drying formula which does not make your lips to dry as powdery matte formula rather than giving a semi matte finish look. These are highly pigmented, pretty much long wearing and comfortable to wear.



That’s all for today girls!
