NYX Matte Lipstick Sweet Pink
By Contributor: Sharmistha Chowdhury
Am back girls with my current favourite lipstick review. I am sucker of lipsticks you all know already. But do you know this is my first NYX Lipstick and I am now a fan of this shade. I got the lipstick from Sammanita’s Blog Sale. After getting this shade I discovered that I already have a dupe of this color in my vanity case! Now now I will tell you about the dupe of Nyx Matte Sweet Pink but first let’s check the review and swatches.
Nyx Claims: NYX Matte Lipsticks are highly pigmented, richly formulated and long-wearing. The formula glides on smoothly and stays put in a matte finish. From Pure Red to Nude, Matte Lipsticks are available in a variety of rich shades. You can check all the 14 shades here
Nyx Sweet Pink is a cool toned purple pink shade with a matte finish. It’s a blue based pink shade which has strong pink undertones. Blue based pinks tend to make your teeth appear whiter and your face brighter. Pigmentation is amazing. One swipe gives opaque coverage and multiple coats will intensify the color.
The texture of this lipstick is amazing. Its not at all drying on lips. No tugging or pulling. But I still would suggest you to moisturize your lips well before putting it on as it looks odd on dry chapped lips. It does settle into lip lines slightly, though it happens with most matte lipsticks so that’s not an issue for me.
The staying power is out of the world, it lasted on my lips for flat 8 hours and survived small meals and loads of water. After which there is a slight fading from the center of the lips.
NYX Matte Lipsticks come in matte black plastic bullet with transparent covering in the middle to display the shade of the lipstick. The cap shuts perfectly and its very light to carry. Hence it is very much travel friendly.
Let’s check the photos and swatches:

Now coming to the dupe, Sweet Pink is very close to MAC Archies Collection Lipstick in Daddy’s Little Girl which I have so yaaayyy now I have two of these! Though it is a LE and the only difference is the latter is creamy while nyx is matte.
