Matte lipsticks are very popular these days, I just kind of followed the rave of other make-up enthusiasts, actually. Here’s a short review of the NYX Matte Lipstick in the shade Tea Rose.
It took a while for me to review this lipstick. It is my first time to buy this kind of matte lipstick, so I tested it first. What you see is what you get, the color on the tube is exactly the color when applied unto the lips. At first, I got intimidated with this shade because of the tint of color pink. I was expecting a little lighter. However, I glided it on my lips more, like two coats, the color got better. The pink is not too powerful, it is just right. I like that this shade can be worn for work or a simple date night with friends or loved one.
I like the longevity of this lipstick, when I am careful during eating, the lipstick still stays on after. Literally, sometimes it lasts all day, say, 4-7 hours? I observed, after eating my brunch at 11am in the morning and apply that, it still stayed at 6pm, and my job requires a lot of talking, and I even eat snacks in the afternoon.
I love the creaminess of the lipstick without it being shiny. Even if it is matte, it doesn’t dry out my lips. It is moisturized even without lip balm under it. However, it is easier to glide the lipstick with a thin layer of lip balm applied on my lips first.
I bought the tube last month or I think end of June from Zejah Boutique online for only Php280. You can really score good and best deals from online shop rather than from beauty department stores. The SRP of this lipstick at the mall is around Php350, more or less.
Will I buy it again? Yeah, I want to try the other shades!
Can’t you tell I’m obsessed? haha!
