We need to talk about the magnificence that is the NYX matte lipstick line.* Bloody Mary, shown above, has the best matte formula I’ve ever encountered: comfortable, non-drying, lightweight, long-lasting, vividly and evenly pigmented. It’s also $6. And NYX is cruelty-free. If you’re on the market for an affordable matte red, you can’t do much better.
(Bloody Mary is the only NYX matte I’ve tried, so I can’t speak to the quality of the others, but the swatches I’ve seen online suggest that they’re just as good.)
*Not to be confused with the matte lip creams, which I’ve never tried, and which look less promising: dryness and lip lines ahoy.
