NYX Matte Lipstick Merlot Review & Swatches


NYX Matte lipstick

I always related NYX with those extra creamy lipsticks which needed to be stocked up in the fridge or the black label lipstick which too was on the creamier side. This time when I heard about NYX Matte lipstick , I imagined Colorbar matte one which we all makeup lovers hoarded .In fact, we had some 30 shades of those lipsticks reviewed on Wise She.

I am impressed with these lipsticks and the reason is the intensity of the colour and their lasting power.


NYX Matte lipstick Merlot Review And Swatches

I know you want to know the other details so lets jump on to them –

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. Available in 22 rich, matte lipstick shades

  • Price  – $6 (I didn’t see them online in India and I don’t think so it will be any less than INR 400-500. Although I did find them on stylecraze.com long time ago but as we know the site doesn’t exist any more so one will have to opt cherry culture only)
  • Packaging – It comes in a round sleek matte black plastic packaging in the middle of it there is transparent panel  where one can see the shade of the lipstick which we all know is always helpful. It has the lipstick ingredient, shade and everything mentioned on it.

  • Texture – Being matte, they are definitely not moisturizing but neither do they make my lips dry and chapped even after long hours of stay. I always use them without lip balm underneath and my lips feel perfectly fine.
  • Staying Power – It last throughout the day.You just glide it on your lips early in the morning before leaving for office and trust me when you come back you will surely find the tint on your lips. It has amazing staying power of seven to eight hours and can survive many meals.

NYX Matte Lipstick Merlot Swatches:-

Merlot is pink based red shade  kind of a Raspberry red colour. It’s great for pigmented lips and those who don’t like bright red or pink, It’s not that shockingly pink at all.

It does accentuate fine lines but I am pretty ok with that as I love the shade, staying power and the texture.
