Just when you think that pale skin and orange lips don’t go together NYX strike again and somehow lure you to their counter and there it is – a gorgeous orange lippy that begs to be thrown into your shopping basket. And I can’t say no to a new exciting shade and you know what – this time I have no regrets. Meet the beautiful NYX Matte Lipstick in Indie Flick (here). I know I must be saying this every time but this little beauty completely converted me. Usually I am a fuchsia / pink lipstick type a gal but recently I’ve been sporting this stunning bright orange-y red and I’ve been loving every second of it. It compliments my skin tone beautifully and I love how it warms up and livens up my face. Indie Flick is bright and colorful and definitely has that ‘old Hollywood’ vibe to it, which I adore at the moment. It kind of reminds me of MAC Lady danger but it’s just for the fraction of the price. Brilliant. So if you fancy dipping your toe into the *very* bold lipstick pool – look this way!
Automatically the formula of the Matte lipstick range had to be compared to my beloved Rimmel Kate lippies and the report goes as follows: The formula of the NYX offering left me smitten – from the stunning matte finish to the pigmentation – it is on point. Indie Flick is hands down the most opaque lipstick I own – it gives full blown color in just one gentle swipe and the color is really rich and dense. The longevity of this gem blew my mind as well – it wears for absolute ages and I even managed to chomp my way through an entire three course meal and it did not budge. Indie Flick is a breeze to apply but after it sets it may get slightly drying so make sure you’ve exfoliated your lips and have a lip balm at the ready in case you need to prep them. Do that and you are done – no flakes and no dry patches accentuated. Yes please!
