The NYX Matte lipstick range and I go way back and ever since I confessed my love for Indie Flick (here) I wanted to get my mittens on some other shades. And then just when I didn’t need any more lipsticks in my life I found myself browsing through the NYX website and two minutes later Tea Rose (here) was added to my shopping card. Even though I’m not your typical nude-y pink lip wearer, this little gem and I really bonded. Its gorgeous mauve pink shade peps up my skin tone beautifully and I adore how sophisticated and chic it looks. Tea Rose is a lovely everyday kinda a lippy and just adds a touch of color, making me look extra feminine and polished. This beaut is one of those shades that suit everyone and it’s equally stunning slapped on with smoke eye or natural makeup. It’s a goodie and if you’re after nice subtle pink-y pout Tea Rose is your guy.
Formula wise, NYX lipsticks are possibly my favorite on the high-street and their Matte range gets my stamp of approval as well. They don’t break the bank, yet have all my lipstick needs in check. Tea Rose has beautiful buttery texture that just glides on and feels cushiony soft. There is no drying involved and the lippy applies evenly and doesn’t settle into fine lines. Although Tea Rose is supposed to have matte finish, I’d say it falls into the satin category and has lovely sheen to it, which I adore. What I adore even more though is amazing pigmentation and richness of the lippy – one swipe and you’re ready to head out the door. Score. The only thing about Tea Rose that doesn’t float my boat is the longevity. It hangs around for about two hours, which for a matte lipstick isn’t that impressive. Apart from that though – I am sold.
Have you tried Tea Rose before? Which is your go-to mauve pink lipstick?
Lots of love,
