NYX Pale Pink is a neutral-toned, light pink with a semi-matte finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $6.00 and contains 0.16 oz.
NYX Pale Pink Matte Lipstick ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a brighter, light-medium pink with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had good color coverage that applied without streaking, but the slightly denser, thicker texture seemed prone to sitting in my lip lines, especially within an hour of wear. The lipstick applied without tugging and felt lightly creamy, so a lip liner might help alleviate some of the settling issues with this shade. It wore well for four hours and was lightly 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.
