NYX Matte Lipstick Swatches

Hey there! Today we’re back on the topic of NYX Matte Lipsticks. Since my last post on these lipsticks, I’ve added 4 more shades to my collection so I figured I should share my new NYX Matte Lipstick swatches with you!

If you haven’t seen my previous post on these lipsticks, you can click here to see a full review as well as swatches of Sweet Pink, Indie Flick, Euro Trash, Butter and Hippie Chic.Β 

In total, I’ve purchased 9 shades of the NYX Matte Lipstick formula so you can be sure that I really do love this formula! Although they’re called matte, I’d consider them more along the lines of “practically matte”. They are not completely matte but I think it works to their advantage as they’re pretty easy to wear. These lipsticks are comfortable, have awesome pigmentation and are very long wearing, especially the darker/more pigmented shades. It does seem like some of the lighter shades (i.e. Forbidden, Hippie Chic) have a bit of a drier formula as they tend to settle into lines and show off any dryness on your lips more so than the darker shades. All of the darker shades are golden though! They apply easily, are comfy and just go and go!

  1. Please tell me more about the mascara/false lashes happening here, you look amazing. Also I’ve been keeping a huge eye out at ULTA for a buy one get one 50% off deal for NYX lately to snag some of the wicked lipsticks and they keep doing eye makeup but not lip products! Really crushing my dreams here haha.

    1. (Also just so you know every time I subscribe to replies to my comments I get an email and your blog is called LOCAL LOCAL LOCAL instead of Sultry Suburbia like it once was. Blog coding is fun haha)

    2. These lashes are Siren from House of Lashes and they are my all time fave!! They have a really thin clear band so they are super easy to place and I wear them all the time without eyeliner, just like in these pics. Plus I usually wear each set like 10-20 times before tossing them and they hold up pretty well. I actually haven’t picked up any of the Wicked Lippies yet for whatever crazy reason but some of the colors are so cool! And oh jeez, thank you so much for letting me know about that! That’s a little awkward. lol My husband is checking into it!

      1. Had a feeling it’d be House of Lashes. They have those perfectly irregular fluttery lashes. I’ll have to get on that train and get some!
        And this is the second blog issues I’ve let you know about this week. Consider me an unofficial editor I guess haha. I just can tell your eye for detail in your blog design and posts so figured that it had just slipped through the cracks.

        1. Lol, I was joking about that with my husband! You’re awfully handy! πŸ˜› But yes, I sort of like things to be perfect so when we realize something is wrong, I like to get it fixed ASAP! Some things we just never notice until someone tells us though. You’re the only one who’s bothered to ever let us know when something is wrong!

          Also, you’re an angel for saying you notice our eye for detail in the design and posts! πŸ˜‰ We try.

  2. YOU actually inspired me to get some Nyx Matte lippies for my 20th birthday, I’m ordering Perfect Red, Siren, and Whipped Caviar, I’m so excited!! How is the texture of Nude? I’m ordering Whipped caviar because I’m on a never-ending hunt for my perfect every day shade and Nude looks like it could be a decent contender IF it doesn’t settle into my (usually) chapped lips. Thanks for the -as always- awesome swatches!

    1. Aw, that’s awesome!! Nude is slightly on the drier side but not as much as Forbidden. It’s very wearable and I love the shade! Plus if you just dab a little balm under it, it’s perfect.

  3. Maison is the only one I own, but it is SO UNIQUE. It is a chocolate brown taupe color, but not so gray that it is corpse-y. I haven’t found anything else like it, and I have a surprising collection of brown and taupe…

    1. Yes!! Maison is next on my list. Every time I see a picture of it something, I just start seriously lusting for it. πŸ˜› It’s such a beautiful, unique shade.

  4. I own like 6, including a Macaroon. I want to get my hands on some of the Wicked lippies. Summer Breeze looks fantastic on you. Love the gold tunnels too.

    1. Aw, thank you! They’re new! πŸ˜‰ All these mentions of the Wicked Lippies make me want to run out and buy a few right now!

  5. I own Hermes (not sure if its a matte – but does look like one when you wear it) and EuroTrash. I love the texture of these, and for the price – they are outstanding! πŸ™‚ Just so you know – my household budget is now being funneled into my “beauty” budget thanks to your marvelous blog! πŸ™‚ <3 Thank you!

    1. NYX really does some have great products for a great price! And it’s okay! Less knick knacks here and there, more lipsticks. πŸ˜‰ It works out, right?

  6. I own only one and it’s Maison. Have been on the hunt for LC Salem’s dupe(which is far too expensive for me) and found this. Oh do I adore it? Like, seriously. After I got it in the beginning of autumn I’m now on a kick of various brown lippies.
    Been thinking of getting some other shades from NYX Matte line, but somehow none of them have caught my eye as much as I’d just need to own it immediately like it happened with Maison(or Rimmel’s Kate 04 come to think of my latest “I’ll die if I don’t get this” lip shade obsessions).

    1. I have seriously got to get my hands on Maison soon! It’s a hard one to find in stores though. Have you see NYX’s Matte Lipstick in Butter? You may like it if you’re on a brown kick! It’s a sort of taupey brown but I adore it.

    1. Alabama is amazing and the staying power is crazy! I’ve showered and everything and it is still faintly on my arm from swatching these yesterday.

  7. I own NYX lipsticks but I don’t think they are from the matte collection. I love how Alabama looks on you! I don’t think I could pull off the other shades above. Siren is on my to-buy list.

  8. Oh wow, Alabama is calling my name right now. I probably have something similar already, but it’s a gorgeous color! I only have Shocking Pink in this formula, but looking at your swatches has made me think I need Alabama, Euro Trash, and Butter, too. Might have to break my self-imposed lipstick no buy, ha!

  9. Thanks for these swatches! I have ton of nyx products, but the only matte I have is Sierra, which I was afraid would be too orange, but it’s a pretty perfect coral.

  10. I have Pale Pink and Hippie Chic and just love them πŸ™‚ I used to be a lipstick snob and would stick with MAC and Lime Crime but was never fully happy and always on the hunt for something new. Well I found the Nyx Matte lipsticks and absolutely love them! The colours are so pretty, the price is awesome and they are pretty long lasting on my lips even after I eat and drink. Nude looks gorgeous on you!

    1. Thank you so much!! But yes, the NYX Matte Formula is serious business. And I’m with you. I’m a huge lipstick junkie yet this formula is hands down one of my favorites!

  11. Hey! Today I just got my first Nyx Matte Lipstick in the shade of Eden, and I’m absolutely thrilled with it! It’s a very lovely red, vibrant color that doesn’t go into maroon or orange.
    I love it!
