Let's be honest, I'm a sucker for a lip product. The will power I have to resist buying a new product daily is a struggle.
But since I work at Ulta, I'm constantly shown new (to me) lip products and I usually pass up since I just have so much. But my friend asked me if this particular NYX lippy was a matte finish or not. We were trying to help a customer and in the process I ended up swatching some on the back of my hand. And then the next day I decided to get the shade Berry Tea for myself!
Before I get too much into the product, let's talk packaging! They're in cute little bottles with a long cap and the applicator is a doe-foot applicator that is shaped more like a water-drop to fit the lips better (I assume).
As for the product itself, it's supposed to be a matte finish. I agree that it ends up being matte, but it takes a long time. Blending the souffle with your lips helps speed it up, but I think it's more of a creamy matte. It feels like a dream and the color payoff lasts a while, so I'm not complaining too much! I usually hate drying matte lippys anyway, so I appreciate it even more. So just be warned...
Sidenote: remember when I said I ended up swatching it at work? Well the swatch did not move one bit the entire shift. Like not one bit! And it was just as creamy! Definitely worth the 6 bucks if you ask me.
