I wanted MAC's Candy Yum Yum lipstick so bad, but it's limited edition and sold really fast. And then, a heaven sent online seller, Starmaine Cay from facebook appeared and make it possible for me to get a dupe of Candy Yumyum.
And here we have, NYX Matte Lipstick in Shocking Pink.
As you can see from the swatch this shocking (YES, VERY SHOCKING PINK) lipstick is so vibrant.
Although it have a somehow purple undertone to it, it still flatters my morena skintone.
The packaging reminds me of Makeup For Ever's lipstick. Except in my opinion, though the MUEE's casing is a little strudier, the NYX's lipstick mechanism (the one that goes up and down. haha) is so much better than MUFE's as it "locks" in place. My two MUFE lipsticks have dent on the top because the twisting mechanism does not lock in place. It can be twisted by little pressure.
I like the formula of this lipstick. Glides on like MAC's Satin formula, but dries matte. It's the same pigmentation and formula as the Makeup Forever too.It can accentuate drying though, and that is common for matte lipsticks anyways.
The pigmentation is so great! It swipes on opaque and evenly. Although make sure you prep your lips with lip balm beforehand.
The wear is good. Not as great as my neon pink from MUFE (203), but can wear up to 4-6hours. Please do mind that I did not eat, I drink though but only once.
I got this for 300 pesos + Shipping Fee.
WILL I REPURCHASE?
Hell yeah. Im eyeing on Perfect Red and Angel/Strawberry Daiquiri. :)
I'm giving it 4 out 5. If only it stays like my MUEE 203, I would give it 5 out of 5.
Here's what it looks like on me.
Would you wear this out?
Till next blog post! :)
