NYX Alabama Matte Lipstick Review Photos Swatches

Nyx launched in India sometime in July and we all went crazy. The brand is very well known internationally specially for its good quality affordable makeup line. I always wanted to try their matte lipsticks range but the shades available at Sephora are limited and mostly out of stock. I received few products from the brand and NYX Alabama Matte Lipstick was one of them.

NYX Matte lipsticks come in black case with a see-through from the middle part, which helps in identifying the shade. The shade name and number are written on the bottom. Packaging is pretty basic.

Shade – NYX Alabama is a brown-red, quite deep. I don’t like such reds as they tend to make my complexion dull, however this shade would suit a variety of skin tones. It is quite dark, almost maroon, but with strong brown tone. You can also check out reviews of NYX Sierra & Pure Red Matte Lipstick

Never go without a gorgeous Matte Lipstick! A smooth swipe of this NYX fan fave delivers highly pigmented, richly formulated and long-wearing colour. The formula glides on smoothly and stays put with a non-drying matte finish.

Texture & Formula – The texture of this shade is quite smooth and creamy unlike regular matte lipsticks. It glides on smoothly without tugging or pulling. Formula isn’t drying and doesn’t feel uncomfortable. I always apply a lip liner while using a dark lipstick so that the shade doesn’t move out of lip lines.

Finish isn’t complete matte and you can see a bit of creaminess. This formula can be good for those who want something creamy but matte, kind of semi-matte.

Pigmentation – NYX Alabama is very pigmented. One swipe is all you would need to get opaque color on the lips. I have dark lips and color conceals the darkness completely.

Staying Power – Alabama stays on for good 5-6 hours and leaves a slight stain.

NYX Alabama Matte Lipstick is available at Sephora Stores and Nykaa.com for Rs 650.


Overall Thoughts

If you love matte but non-drying formulas then NYX Alabama Matte Lipstick is a good choice. There are over 10 shades available to choose from. The texture of these lipsticks isn’t drying or uncomfortable and stays put for a long time.

    I like brown reds but the ones with more red in them. Too much brown dulls down my face also. I want to try this range though 🙂 Looks lovely on your lips.

    The shade looks perfect for dusky Indian tones. But I don’t think it will go well for me…

    This shade looks too dark for my preference. Agree that deep brown in red makes skin look dull 🙂
