Temptress

NYX Temptress Matte Lipstick ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a medium, pink-coral with warmer undertones and a semi-matte finish. This shade had a stronger white base, which seemed to make the lipstick appear lighter on the lips than initially swatched or in the tube. The texture was lightly creamy, comfortable to apply, and did not slide around over time. It had nearly opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly with just a bit of color that settled into my lip lines after two and a half hours of wear. This shade lasted for four hours and was non-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.

Audrey

NYX Audrey Matte Lipstick ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a bright, medium pink with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly, but there was a bit of “cracking” at my deepest lip line, though I could smooth it out by pressing my lips together periodically. The consistency was lightweight, thin without being dry, and was comfortable to apply as the lipstick did not tug. It lasted for four and a half hours and was lightly drying.

Natural

NYX Natural Matte Lipstick ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plummy mauve with neutral undertones and a satin finish. The lipstick was smooth, velvety, and glided on with ease while delivering nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer. It applied evenly, and I had a smidgen of color pull into my deeper lip lines that was not visible from a normal viewing distance. The color wore well for four and a half hours with some color pulling further into my lip lines after three hours of wear, and the formula felt non-drying to me.

I’ve had Audrey and Natural for several years now. Used to wear them a lot… untili began exponentially expanding my lipstick stash? Which is really sad since these are some nice shades. I think I need to take one of them out for a ride! 😉

Natural turned out cooler on you than I would have expected. I have a dupe but I’ll keep it in mind as I love Pastille but sometimes I want something creamier.
