New! NYX Matte Lipstick Swatches

before going on my pre-holiday no-buy i placed an order with Cherry Culture for some NYX products. i'd been looking to try their new matte lipsticks and when i saw they were only $4.99 on Cherry Culture i figured why not, plus i got an extra 25% off my order.
          NYX Matte Lipsticks are highly pigmented, richly formulated lipsticks that glide on smoothly, stay put and impart a non-glossy, high-fashion matte finish as they envelop lips in brilliant color.
as with most matte lip products, these can be kind of drying and will draw extra attention to the small lines and any "imperfections" so it helps to exfoliate and use a lip balm before applying them.

i'm not a huge fan of the way Hippie Chic and Nude look on me straight out of the tube. a little too pale for my taste, they definitely need to be warmed-up with a liner in order for me to be able to pull them off. the brighter colors, however, are a whole different story. Indie Flick & Shocking Pink Rock!!! i'll definitely be getting a lot of use out of these this fall.

have you tried NYX Matte lipsticks? what did you think of them?

I love them all! I, too, don't like too nude lipsticks, because they make my nips look wayyy unnatural. Great review.
