NYX Matte Lipstick in Indie Flick

I have been looking for an orange lipstick for quite a while now. Still haven't found the perfect shade that I wanted which is a softer orange that I can wear on an everyday basis. I did however saw this bright orange lipstick from NYX which is something you don't often see people wearing on the streets so I decided to grab it.

I really like the packaging of this! I also found that this range of lipstick is somewhat taller than a regular NYX lipstick. Even the feel of the tube is matte which is nice but it leaves fingerprints. It's good that you can easily tell what the color of the product is because of the clear plastic in the middle part of the tube.

The only problem I find with the packaging is that you will be able to twist the tube even if the cap is closed so basically the product will twist upwards and hit the cap while it's still in the tube. The result is that of a slightly nicked lipstick which ain't so pretty... as you can see from the shot above.

Indie Flick is a bright orange-y red and has a matte finish. It's a little bit drying so I suggest putting on some chap stick or lip balm for a smoother application. It doesn't bleed out or anything and lasts for a good 3-4 hours on me.

 I think this is pretty handy for days when I wanna look 'done up' but don't wanna put on much makeup on my eyes. To be honest I rarely use bold colors like this except on special occasions or whenever I felt like I needed to change up my makeup routine. But overall I quite like Indie Flick! It stood out from the rest of my lipsticks which are mainly pinks and mauve shades. The NYX Matte Lipstick in Indie Flick retails for B$15.90 at Shop at Sarah's, Kiulap Mall.

  5. It looks great on you but I think I have to passed on this kind of shade. Though I love the brand, the shade is not for me. I find it darker. I prefer a lighter shade that will make my lips look natural.
