Bold, bright and in-your-face lips are my favourite way to instantly boost any look and this vibrant matte number from NYX is a perfect bright coral red. I've never actually tried any lipsticks from NYX before and I can't thank my Cali babe Mel for sending me this (having a friend on the west coast who loves make up just as much as you is incredibly helpful when finding new products, just saying')
Being matte, I made sure I laid a lip balm base down a little while before attempting to use this as matte products always tug on my lips a little and end up drying them out quickly. Admittedly I may have been able to leave out the lip balm as this lipstick is surprising super creamy, much more of a semi-matte lipstick so a little tip I've picked up is to blot my lips following application to make it appear a little more matte without fading the colour.
It's not indestructible when it comes to eating and drinking but does have a relatively decent staying power. I feel like I say this about every lip product I use but just throw it in your bag to top up your lips if needs be, they are small enough to not fit your bag after all.
You can grab NYX Cosmetics from most Next stores in the UK now thankfully, I'm sure I'll be adding to my collection soon as I'm yet to find a NYX product I don't like.
