Matte lipsticks are my favourite lipsticks in the world. If you look in my lipstick collection you’d see that most of them have a matte finish. I’ve always found that matte lipsticks are easier to wear and suit me well.
NYX is easily available in the UK these days and the high quality of their products keeps me coming back for more. I decided to treat myself to a new matte lipstick and picked up NYX Matte lipstick in the shade Whipped Caviar. It’s a deep nude pink with faint hints of plum that give it a mysterious edgy look. I’ve had so many compliments when wearing this and after sharing pictures of me wearing the lipstick on a Facebook beauty page, about 15 ladies went and purchased one for themselves and couldn’t thank me enough for telling them about it.
You can pick up Whipped Caviar for the very affordable price of £6.50. I picked mine up from the Boots website but you can also find it on other websites like FeelUnique and Amazon. I think Boots will be bringing NYX stands into stores soon too. I’ve heard that at the moment they are currently only trialling out NYX stands in a few stores around the UK so at the moment shopping online is your best option.
The packaging is pretty simple. A plastic black bullet with a transparent middle section where you can see the bullet and the colour of the lipstick. It has the NYX logo and product name printed on the black plastic. It’s a pull off lid and a twist up bullet.
I’m sure you’ve all heard about Kylie Jenner and the obsession that surrounds her amazing lipstick choices. Whipped Caviar is a great dupe for the MAC lipstick in the shade Brave which Kylie has been known to wear on a number of occasions. I’ve seen swatches and I can completely agree, they are almost identical in colour and you’ll be saving a good chunk of money by choosing NYX.
Matte lip products can sometimes be drying and leave your lips feeling baked and dehydrated which none of us want to deal with. Luckily for us, NYX Matte lipsticks are a pleasure to have on the lips. You don’t have to worry about dried out lips because the formula is a creamy dream. The rich lipstick glides effortlessly over your lips leaving them with an opaque coat of colour and a slight sheen. Because the formula is creamy the lipstick doesn’t give a complete dry matte look, but it’s still undeniably matte and I think I prefer it this way.
If you want a lipstick with incredible staying power, Whipped Caviar will tick that box. It doesn’t budge from my lips for hours after applying. It stays on well through the day and doesn’t bleed away from the lips or shrivel up which has happened with other matte lipsticks I’ve tried. It’s moisturising and for the low price tag I don’t think you could ask for more.
I’d say this is a shade which is suited to all skin tones. It’s just one of those colours that will flatter most of us women. If you’re looking for a lipstick that is comfortable and easy to wear then you must try out Whipped Caviar because I’m pretty sure you’ll love it.
