This bad boy was one of the things that I received in the little gift package that I mentioned in a previous post. I've tried a lot of things of from NYX but for some reason, I had never been able to get myself to actually buy their lipsticks. Well this lipstick has started something special.

The NYX lipstick in shocking pink is a gorgeous blue toned  pink. I swatched it for the first time last week and went like so this is what the madness is about? The reason I never got my self to try NYX lipsticks or lip products in the past was because of the price. They usually sell for about N2,500 to N2,800 and every time I decided to give them a try, I always ended up telling myself that with just a few hundreds of Naira, I'd be able to get a Mac lipstick. I honestly didn't believe that when compared to actual Mac lipsticks, that they'd be able to deliver. 
Well let me tell you guys, I have some Mac lipsticks that apply just the way that this lipstick does. It has very good color pay off, you will be shocked at first swipe. It is not really matte, it has a finish that is comparable to Mac's amplified finish. I'm currently in the US and they sell for about $6.00 here, if not lower so they are way cheaper than you might be able to get them in Naija. But there is always beauty just know that the NYX matte lipsticks are definitely worth the try especially because of how affordable they are.
