Rocking red lips! – NYX Matte Lipstick

I have been searching for a really good matte lipstick for a long time, until I watched a review by itsjudytime (link below at the swatches), where the lovely Judy swatched all of the NYX Matte Lipstick colors. I fell in love immediately with the color-payoff of the really bold colors, so I ordered the most beautiful, but daring shade: MERLOT.


It is a really bold plum red and looks just stunning on the lips.

(sorry that it’s already looking used – but I had to test it for you guys ;))


  • creates a REALLY matte look
  • LONGLASTING! (it even passed the donut-eating-test ;-))
  • bold colors – perfect for summer
  • amazing color-payoff
  • no scent (better than a bad one…)
  • MERLOT is perfect to create a pin-up-look matched with winged eyeliner
  • doesn’t bleed out of the lipline


Full swatches by itsjudytime:


  • a little bit hard to apply for red-beginners
  • feels a bit dry at first – goes away after a while
  • not kiss-proof

Recommendation: ✓
