NYX matte lipsticks are one of my favourite lipsticks from the drugstore brands. They have a variety of color choices with good pigmentation and not-so-dry matte formula. This time, I was in search of a coral bright red lipstick to wear in summer. I didn’t even look anywhere else and headed straight to the NYX counter and found this shade. I was confused between this shade and “Pure Red.” But I got this one for this time because Pure Red looked orange-ier in the tube.
NYX Matte Lipsticks are highly pigmented, richly formulated and long-wearing. The formula glides on smoothly and stays put with a non-drying matte finish.

My Experience with NYX Matte Lipstick in Indie Flick:
It comes in a black plastic body with transparent middle section that shows the color. Shade is written on one end and body itself is covered with ingredients list and NYX written over it. Packaging is just okay, doesn’t look very classy. I think it would break if I drop it.
NYX describes this color as bright coral red and this is the exact description which can be given to this shade. It is a beautiful bright coral color indeed. I like that it doesn’t have orang-ish tone in this which happens to be the most disappointing thing when you buy a coral lipstick and find it to be more orange than coral.
Formula is semi matte I must say. I like my lipstick finish as matte so that I don’t leave stain every where I touch my lips, it seriously is very embarrassing. I have used Colorbar Velvet Matte lipstick, which dried out my lips sometimes. But this lipstick here is very smooth and glides effortlessly without tugging on lips. You don’t need to put a lip balm under the lips. It gives a creamy and semi-matte finish. After applying, I blot my lips on a tissue paper and then it turns complete matte without fading in color. It does transfer a little bit, but after blotting, it doesn’t transfer at all.
It has a weird smell, but not so strong, which goes away after a while. About the staying time, I apply it in the morning and after having one meal and till afternoon, it is still there on my lips but color faded a little bit in the centre. After fading, it does leave a stain but that looks beautifully coral unlike Colorbar Velvet Matte which leaves a pink stain always.
Pigmentation is quite good. In just one swipe, it gives its color to lips, so can be easily used on pigmented lips. I am not an expert on ingredients, but I think it contains some of the good ones like tocopheryl acetate which is another name for vitamin E and titanium dioxide which is a physical sunscreen. Spf is not mentioned but I think it does provide sun protection.
Pros of NYX Matte Lipstick in Indie Flick:
- Beautiful true coral red shade.
- Good staying power.
- Transfer proof (after blotting).
- Non drying, semi matte finish.
- Reasonable price.
- Good pigmentation.
- Contains titanium dioxide( physical sunscreen).
Cons of NYX Matte Lipstick in Indie Flick:
- Packaging could have been better.
- If you are looking for a complete matte look, this is not for you.
I think my search for a coral lipstick can end here because I found the perfect shade in a desired formula here. This shade will look good on fair skinned people more because of the bright color. I have wheatish complexion and I think I can pull it off. It also makes your teeth look whiter. 🙂
Would I Recommend/Repurchase NYX Matte Lipstick in Indie Flick?
Yes, if you are searching for a bright coral lipstick and haven’t been able to find the true color, give it a try.
