NYX Cosmetics Butter Lipstick in Sweet Tart - On my lips,Review,Swatches

Hey people
I am super excited about this one post! This has traveled all the way from abroad to Hyderabad,India just to make my lips more beautiful.I am thankful to certain somebody.This one lipstick is pretty unique in my whole collection of lipsticks. I never own a bright pink lipstick(at least not knowingly).I am kind of not very comfortable wearing pink lipsticks.I have always thought that my skintone and pink lips doesn't really go well.So,let's see what the lipstick has to offer me.
It Says:
The unique texture seems to melt onto the lips, giving full, yet lightweight coverage with a luxurious satin finish.
Price and Quantity:
$6 for 4.5gms
Okay,apart from the very cheap $6 price tag, we Indians have to pay loads of shipping cost to own these beauties.

NYX Matte Lipsticks in Natural,Shocking Pink,Euro Trash and Sierra Review,Swatches,LOTD

Well these were bought a while back. I had them for too long and I finally found time to write a review on these cute ones. NYX lippies always seemed enticing to me. I now own few of these and few of their round lipsticks. Their lipcreams are yet to be tried. I always have to buy them online and I'm really not sure about the colour and texture.So,I skipped them all the while.However,this time I am sure I am picking up a pink lipcream.Okay,now coming to these I have got it from b2nshop. Me along with a blogger friend placed the order and we got the package in 20days and all the items came in a perfect condition.

What does the website say about these:
NYX Matte Lipsticks are highly pigmented, richly formulated and long-wearing. The formula glides on smoothly and stays put in a matte finish. From Pure Red to Nude, Matte Lipsticks are available in a variety of rich shades.
As said, they have an amazing range of products and colour choices. Here I have 4 with me.

Package:
The lipstick comes in a black matte plastic bullet with transparent rim.The cap just fits with a click sound and hence travel friendly. However,the plastic case is a bit cheap and tend to break if you don't handle them properly. The names are printed on the bottom of the lipstick,which makes it easier to pick up from your huge lipstick stash.

My Experience with the NYX Matte Lipsticks:
I believe that matte lipsticks stay longer and usually leave a tint behind. I like the way they leave a slight tint on which I apply the lipbalm and maintain the not so made up look for the evenings. Anyway,this is my perception and I am sure that I can be proved wrong too.Apart from all the pros and cons, I like matte finish and not creamy as they tend to bleed on my lips.*I have the habit of biting my lips* so considering all of them,when I had a chance to buy the lipsticks, I went overboard and got these matte ones.
These are too matte. I mean, they are creamy and extremely pigmented but the just coat your lips. You gotta scrub off all the dryness from your lips coz these lippies are no good in covering up the patches or dry dead skin. In fact, these enhance the lines. With one swipe, you get the true colour but you can give 2 coats to have the perfect pout. I love their choice of colours and most of them are very unique and I like the way they gave names and not numbers or anything. They stay on for 4 hours surviving liquids and snacks. Later it fades away in patches and you have to reapply. Else you can apply your lipbalm and blend in for the tinted glossy soft evening look.You have to use the makeup remover to take the lipstick off completely. I have dry lips so, I prefer applying lipbalm beneath the lipstick else I'm not really sure of my survival. Yes, that says my addiction to the lipbalm.Overall, a perfect matte lipstick for those all matte lip lovers.
Natural:
Do not go by the name! It is not natural at least not on me. It looks light pinky purple which may look great on fair skin tones.
Shocking Pink:
It is a loud bright fuchsia pink. It suits me so well but it is too bold for my locality :(
Euro Trash:
I picked this thinking that this would be a n*de but the shade card on their website is much deceiving. It turned out to be coral orange. 
Sierra:
It is just like the name.Bright warm toned orange that suits everyone. This is my favourite.
The Swatches:
Sharing the swatches with not so confidence.. Coz they are a bit nice in reality. The pics are not to their true color. Blaming my camera for this :(

Pros:
1. Perfect matte lipstick.
2. Once set, stays on for 4-5 hours.
3. Chick packaging.
4. Amazing shade selection.
5. Easy on pocket.
Cons:
1. Texture is drying and using a lipbalm beneath is necessary.
2.Settles in fine lines.
3. Exfoliating your lips before you apply this lipstick is a must.
4.Availability, no these are available in India too but for way too pricey than their original price.
Final Words:
If you love to flaunt matte lips and not knowing which one to choose and then blot.. Go grab these lipsticks and you never have to blot to make them look matte as they are already the perfect matte.
