A Perfect Red Goddess!…A Lipcote Lipstick Review

November 5, 2015


Lipstick Brand: NYX Cosmetics

Lipstick Colour: Perfect Red

Price: £6.00

Lipcote Rating: 4/5

Although born in 1999, NYX Cosmetics is a relatively new brand for the UK, but has now recently attained cult status, so the matte lipstick range was first on our wishlist to try! ‘NYX’ pronounced ‘Niks’ refers to the goddess from Greek mythology, who symbolises beauty and power; a winning combination!

Recently featured in the May edition of Glowwbox, the ‘True Red’ shade is a great entry point to experiencing the brand. The twist up bullet is housed in a simple, yet effective black casing with see through band to quickly guide you towards the preferred shade, and has large NYX logos emblazoned in white on both ends to make it really stand out amongst your lipstick collection!

We were really impressed with the thick and smooth consistency of this formula, considering its highly affordable price, and the pigment payoff was equally impressive. We decided to pair this lipstick with the ‘Hot Red’ lip liner pencil which solidly delivered a perfect outline and filled in the mouth as a great base to the lipstick. We found that coupling the bullet with the liner, really helped build true opaqueness with ease, and left us with a sizzling, stand-out pout all day through work and after work drinks!

A little ‘cruelty free’ logo on the bullet promotes NYX’s anti animal testing ethos, helping us love them even more! Nyx is definitely a name to become familiar with if not already, as their offerings can safely compete with higher end brands in terms of quality and final effect. x
