NYX Matte Lipsticks (Swatches!)

.

Here are swatches of the NYX Matte Lipsticks ($4.99) I snagged at IMATS: Indie Flick, Sweet Pink, and Shocking Pink. These lipsticks are gorgeous! Even though they have a matte finish, they are not at all drying (at least to me), I have "Ruby Woo" from MAC which is a matte finish and it's so dry, I can't apply that without some chapstick; in comparison, these are very moisturizing and very pigmented!

The only con is that there is not a lot of product in comparison to standard lipsticks, but then again it's only $4.99! To get an idea, the second pic below is the lipstick twisted all the way up.

I also took the liberty of comparing these lipsticks to other lipsticks in my collection, when I originally swatched "Shocking Pink" at IMATS, it reminded me of MAC's "Candy Yum-Yum" lipstick, so I swatched similar pinks to see what they could be close to. "Indie Flick" is more of a true orange (it didn't show up that true in pics), MAC's "Coral Polyp" from the Dame Edna Collection and MAC's "Hibiscus" from the Surf Baby Collection had more of a reddish terracotta tinge to it. And NYX's "Femme" lipstick is a nice true coral. NYX's "Sweet Pink" is close to MAC's "Show Orchid" and NYX's "Shocking Pink" is just a tad bit more berry in shade, whereas MAC's "Candy Yum Yum" is more on the lighter pink side.
