I have tried several NYX lipsticks over the course of the last few months, some which I really like, but until today I hadn’t tried any of the velvet matte range.
I kind of feel bad for any lipstick following my two days of high-end luxury in my birthday Tom Ford and Chanel lipsticks; I feel it’s a little unfair to judge anything against them really because they are just so fabulous.
The formula is matte but not super matte, as it does have a slight creaminess to it, especially on the finish. I wouldn’t say that it felt very moisturising, you do have to apply a layer or two to blend it properly. Having said that however, it was in no way drying and had a lovely velvet feel to it on application as the name suggests.
I liked this, and I do think I will wear it again, especially for the shade. I’m just not sure that I like it as their Butter lipstick which has a gorgeous creaminess to it.
Overall I’m a big fan of NYX as a brand and I don’t think you can go too far wrong with their lip products. I have a few more shades to try out from the range, so I’ll be interested to see if I like it any more when I put those to the test.
