Sweet Pink

NYX Sweet Pink Matte Lipstick ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a dark magenta pink with cool undertones and a satin finish. It had good color coverage, though it was not quite opaque, that applied evenly across the lips and did not drag. The texture felt thinner but was still creamy enough to be comfortable on. There was slight color that pulled into my deeper lip lines. It wore well for five hours and a left a stain behind with the formula being slightly drying.

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.

Street Cred

NYX Street Cred Matte Lipstick ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a bright, medium pink coral with warm undertones and a satin finish. It was intensely pigmented and had a very smooth, lightly creamy texture that wasn’t too thick or too thin, which made it sit nicely on the lips and apply without lots of streaking. It wore well for five and a half hours and was a little on the drying side after four hours of wear.

Angel

NYX Angel Matte Lipstick ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a bright, medium pink with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly without tugging on the lips. The consistency was lightweight, thin without being clingy, and it sat well on the lips. This shade wore well for five and a half hours and was slightly drying.

I’ve had both Sweet Pink and Angel for about 5 years, neither has turned or gone rancid, surprisingly!
Angel reminds me so much of my Mom’s signature bright watermelon color Revlon Moon Drops lipstick. She had to have gone through at least 25-30 (or more?) tubes of the SAME EXACT shade for a good 20 years at least! ?
Although, now having seen Street Cred, I’d have to say that not only do I like it more than Angel, but it looks even more like that RMD Lipstick!
