Nyx Professional Makeup ‘Suede Matte’ Lipsticks ($7.99)

You guys… I friggin looooove these new Nyx Cosmetics lipsticks! They have a spongy texture kinda similar to the Pat McGrath MatteTrance lipsticks.

Nyx Cosmetics products are currently buy one, get one 50% off at Ulta and there’s a free gift with purchase. I have 16 of the 24 shades (Ulta only carries 12) because several of them melted in transit. I divided them into two parts rather than try to fit 16 swatches on my arm at one time.

The formula of these lipsticks is bomb. More velvety than a true matte but very long wearing and extremely comfortable. Plus the packaging is adorable with the little heart design that matches each shade. There’s no discernable scent as far as I can tell but I have allergies so my sense of smell isn’t great right now.

This is my favorite lip product that I’ve tried in awhile and the coordinating Suede Matte Lip Pencils are really good too (and only $3.99!). They also sent the matching pencils which I’ll swatch soon!

Okay starting with the warmer half..

Dainty Daze is a light peachy pink

Free Spirit is similar to Dainty Daze but a shade or two darker

Brunch Me is also in the same family but brighter

Peach Don’t Kill My Vibe is a terracotta peach

Clinger is hot pink

Sweet Tooth is bright fuchsia

Girl, Bye is a deep berry color

Cold Brew is a deep, vampy red brown

I love this set! My favs are Brunch Me, Peach Don’t Kill My Vibe, Free Spirit and strangely Clinger (it’s a shade of lipstick that you’d expect to see around the base of penis… but I’m down with that)

And the cooler toned half…

STFU is a bold magenta

Cyberpop is a light, bright cool toned purple

Munchies is taupe

Moonwalk is dark gray

Ace is blue gray

Smudge Me is similar to Ace but darker and more gray

Doom is a blackened purple

Ex’s Tears is navy blue

I can’t pull off dark, vampy lips and unconventional lipstick colors are out of my comfort zone so the first half was much more appealing to my personal preferences. But I think these colors would look great on someone else, especially the purples and grays.

I suck at reviewing lipsticks so I’m sorry this wasn’t a more detailed post. I think these lipsticks are excellent quality especially considering the price and the formula is one of the best that I’ve tried in quite some time. If you’re interested in trying them, I’d suggest taking advantage of the Ulta sale!

NYX Cosmetics also sent the matching Suede Matte Lip Pencils and their Slip Tease Lip Lacquers which I’ll be swatching soon. Check out my instagram (@angelamarytanner) as I usually post there first!
