NYX MATTE LIPSTICK - SIREN
Lets start with the packaging, very basic and comes in the bullet form just like any other lipstick. The lipstick is a matte finish and has the most amazing colour pay off. I would say that its a deep plum with a slight red undertone. Even thought it has a matte finish it doesn't really dry the lips or feel uncomfortable wearing it. I did notice that even though it has a matte finish its more like a satin finish with a slight glossy finish.
The lipstick applies flawlessly and goes on smoothly over the lips. The colour pay off is amazing as you can see and just one layer is more than enough to show off the true colour of the lipstick. I did notice that there is slight bleeding of the lips so I would suggest that you line your lips with a lip liner. The lasting powder is really good, I was able to get about 5-6 hours. It will last all day with slight wear off if you eat or drink something. The lipstick does kind of settle into the cracks if you have dry lips like me so I would suggest applying a lip balm prior to applying the lipstick.
I love this colour and this is one of my go to lipsticks when I go out in the night. It gives such a rich look and dresses up any makeup you have applied. I love NYX as a high-street brand and this is the first time I have tried one of their lipsticks and I must say I am impressed and I will definitely try a few more shades from this collection. I definitely recommend that you give these matte lipsticks a try if your someone who likes matte finishes.
