Most of you will already know about popular US make up brand NYX arriving in Ireland last month. Since then I've been trying out a selection of their products and so far I'm very impressed. It seems fitting that the first thing I review from a brand is a lip product. I bought one of the Matte lipsticks in Shocking Pink after I saw it on the NYX Instagram account and fell in love.
You probably all know at this stage that I'm a red lipstick lover, however I am quite partial to a good pink. Shocking Pink speaks for itself, I wore it with minimal make up, natural foundation with my freckles peeking through, a touch of a creamy pink blush and lots of mascara.
I love the formula of this lipstick, it applies very smoothly and isn't drying like other matte lipsticks I have however it does need reapplication after a few hours just to keep the vibrancy of the colour. Having said that it wears away nice and evenly and I'm sure with some liner it would last a lot longer.
As you can see the packaging is simple and it's nice to be able to see the shade through the centre.
For €5.99 I really can't fault this lipstick, I can't wait to get my hands on a few more shades.
NYX is available on Littlewoods Ireland and Beauty Emporium and in selected pharmacies nationwide, you can see the full list here.
