PRICE: 6 US $ (0.16oz)

PACKAGING: The Nyx Matte Lipsticks come in a black plastic tube with a transparent band in between which shows the colour.The packaging is nothing extraordinary,But considering the price its quite cute.Sometimes simple things also look good.A sticker is placed at the bottom with the name and the shade of the lipstick mentioned


COLOUR: Merlot is a beautiful deep berry red which should suit all skin tones.If you are sceptical about bright reds or bright pinks and magentas then you can obviously give Merlot a try.It isn’t that bright but the colour lightens up your face instantly.



TEXTURE: It has a creamy finish that glides on smoothly and settles into a matte finish.Its easy to apply.But if you have dry lips it may accentuate into fine lines.So to avoid that scrub and moisturise your lips nicely before application.It did not look patchy on me and gave a beautiful finish.

PIGMENTATION: NYX has never disappointed me and this was no exception.Merlot is Superbly pigmented and is opaque in a single swipe itself.You can always layer it up to get a more intense colour .

STAYING POWER:  NYX Matte Lipstick Merlot stayed on me for a good 3 to 4 hours with light snacking.
