Whipped Caviar

NYX Whipped Caviar Matte Lipstick ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The consistency was smooth, creamy without being too slippery so it adhered well to the lips evenly. It had rich, opaque color coverage that applied evenly and lasted for four and a half hours. The formula was comfortable to wear and neither drying nor hydrating.

The Matte Lipstick is supposed to be “highly pigmented” and have a “velvety, non-glossy” finish. In general, the formula has semi-opaque to opaque color coverage with a velvety texture that glides on without tugging but doesn’t have a lot of slip, so the lipstick won’t slide around while worn. The formula varied from non-drying to moderately drying with wear times that ranged from four to over six hours (deeper, reddish shades lasted quite long). It has a mint scent and no discernible taste. I noticed that the packaging had a tendency to twist up the lipstick too easily (even barely holding it) and sometimes would twist down as I would apply it directly from the tube.

J. Cat Beauty Twilight You Glow Girl Baked Highlighter ($9.00 for 0.30 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium gold with warm, brown undertones and a sparkling finish. There were larger bits of sparkle strewn throughout the powder, which made for a rougher texture overall.

The formula is described as a “multi-dimensional baked formula” that has “all day long” wear with an “intense shimmer pigment.” It had medium, buildable pigmentation that blended out surprisingly well, given the chunks of sparkle in it. I noticed a moderate amount of the sparkles on my cheeks, so this might not be suitable for anyone averse to glitter. It had a more metallic sheen overall, but it did emphasize my pores slightly. This shade wore well for seven hours before fading.

NYX Alabama Matte Lipstick ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark red with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, smooth consistency that glided on without tugging on the lips and delivered even coverage. The color wore well for over six hours and left a slight stain behind, though the formula was neither drying nor hydrating over time.
