I can tell that NYX matte lipsticks are my favorite lip rouges. I adore them, no matter if they’re from Matte lipstick or Soft Matte lip cream collection. I have a bunch of them and I love the most of their main characteristics. For this post I decided to do the swatches of my favorite ones for warm summer days, including one from Full Throttle collection and one from Lingerie line. These can be easily found everywhere now, and the price range is from about 7€ to 8.5 – 9€ per piece. So, let’s do this!

Sasvim je jasno da su NYX mat ruževi za usne moj omiljeni izbor kada je reč o ovoj vrsti proizvoda. Obožavam ih, bez obzira da li su iz Matte lipstick ili Soft Matte lip cream kolekcije. Imam ih baš mnogo i zadovoljna sam skoro svim njihovim osobinama. Za ovaj post sam odlučila da vam pokažem nijanse meni najdražih za tople letnje dane, uključujući jednu nijansu iz Full Throttle kolekcije i jednu iz Lingerie linije. Ovaj brend je sada lako dostupan, a cene ovih proizvoda su od 7€ do 8.5 – 9€ po karminu. I…počnimo!

What I love the most about NYX Matte Lipsticks is that unlike the most of other matte lipsticks these are not completely matte and I don’t find these to be at all drying! Easy to apply with smooth touch, it gives nice semi-matte look to your lips, providing just the perfect moment between matte and creamy. I can tell that this is rather nourishing than drying formula, although it would shine at it’s best if you exfoliate and moisturize lips before applying these. One layer of this lipstick will be just enough to provide amazing and solid color that will last 6 hours at least. Even if you eat or drink, it will still be there on your lips, waiting for just one thin layer to shine bright once again!

Ono što najviše volim kod NYX Matte karmina je to što, za razliku od većine drugih mat prizvoda koje sam probala, nisu totalno mat i zapravo ne isušuju usne! Laki za nanošenje u glatkim pokretima, daju jako fin polu-mat izgled usnama, obezbeđujući vašim usnama momenat između matiranog i kremastog osećaja. Ovo je više hranljiva nego isušujuća formula, iako će u punom sjaju zasijati na vašim usnama tek nakon pilinga i sloja hranljivog balzama. Jedan sloj ovog ruža biće sasvim dovoljan da boja prikrije vaše usne i pritom potraje barem 6 sati. Čak i nakon jela ili nekog pića, boja će i dalje biti prisutna na usnama i biće vam dovoljan zaista tanak sloj iste da je osvežite i da ponova izgleda besprekorno.

When it comes to colors I prefer using during the summertime, MLS30 Aria is the darkest one, the color between dark fuchsia and dark violet. Actually, this is one of my favorite autumn/winter colors (beside SMLP Copenhagen & Transylvania) but I noticed that this color looks really great on tanned skin as well. MLS17 Sweet Pink is kind of electric pink that looks gorgeous on tanned skin. MLS06 Summer Breeze is nice pink color that looks really great on lips, refreshingly pleasant! MLS09 Natural is just amazing basic color that will combine really good anytime for any occasion, at any part of the day. MLS04 Pale Pink is not my color at all, but…if you’re blonde with paler skin with no tendency for bronze tanned tones – this one will be your summer MUST HAVE!

When it comes to this Full Throttle lipstick, this is nice nourishing formula that applies smoothly, leaving rich and pleasant layer of color on the lips, and dries nicely in matte finish. I use this FTLS07 Sidekick shade. It’s nice pink tone, really gentle and soft color, highly feminine. I love it for daytime needs, it blends amazingly with my basic make-up routine (that is all about eyeliner and mascara).

Što se tiče boja koje volim koristiti tokom leta, MLS30 Aria je najtamnija nijansa, boja između tamno roze i tamno ljubičaste. Zapravo, ovo je jedna od mojih omiljenih nijansi za jesen/zimu (pored SMLP Copenhagen & Transylvania) ali sam shvatila da ova boja odlično izgleda i na preplanuloj koži. MLS17 Sweet Pink je električno pink nijansa koja izgleda prelepo na preplanuloj koži. MLS06 Summer Breeze je fina pinkasta nijansa koja divno osveži lice! MLS09 Natural je neka basic natural nude nijansa koja će izgledati jako lepo u svakoj situaciji, u bilo kom momentu tokom dana. MLS04 Pale Pink nije moja boja uopšte, ali…plavušama sa malo svetlijom puti i bez tendencija ka bronzanim nijansama bi ovo mogla biti MUST HAVE nijansa leta.

Kada je reč o Full Throttle karminu, ovo je već baš lepa hranljiva formula koja se baš baš lagano nanosi, ostavljajući bogat i ugodan sloj boje na usnama koja se lagano suši u mat završnicu. Ja koristim FTLS07 Sidekick nijansu. Ovo je jedna jako fina, nežna i ženstvena nijansa ružičaste. Obožavam je za dnevne potrebe budući da se jako lepo utapa u moju svakodnevnu make-up rutinu (koja podrazumeva samo ajlajner i maskaru).

Now, NYX Soft Matte lip cream is completely new dimension. This is kind of a lipstick that every girl just NEED TO HAVE in her bag. These come in this lip-gloss-look-a-like package, with the same “plush” brush and exactly that is one of the reason I placed them among my favorites. These are the liquid version of Matte lipsticks so their layers are thinner but the coverage quality is just the same perfect! The liquid texture makes them more prone to highlight irregularities on the surface of your lips, so exfoliating and than nourishing balm are key to success with these beauties. Their brush provides easy and precise application and duration is about 4-5 solid hours. The price is about 8€

E, NYX Soft Matte lip cream je kolekcija koja nam je otvorila neke sasvim nove dimenzije. Ovo je vrsta ruža za usne koji svaka devojka prosto mora imati u torbi. Ovi ruževi su pakovani kao sjajevi za usne, u istoj tubici sa onim “plišanim” aplikatorom, i upravo ih to jedna od karakteristika koja ih stavlja među moje omiljene ruževe.Ovo je tečnija varijanta Matte ruževa tako da je njihova tekstura nešto ređa ali je kvalitet pokrivanja jednako savršen! Upravo ovaj tečnjikavi momenat ih čini manje otpornim na nepravilnosti na površini usana, tako da su piling i hranljivi balzam obavezni pre nanošenja ovog ruža; u suprotnom će sve nepravilnosti na usnama biti naglašene. Aplikator ovih ruževa ih čini jako jednostavnim i preciznim za nanošenje a trajnost na usnama je dobrih 4-5 sati. Cena je oko 8€

SMLC06 Istanbul is baby pink color that will suit the most range of skin colors. It looks really nice, providing soft pinkish-nude shade that is highly feminine. SMLC02 Stockholm is warm nude shade, perfect match for all skin and hair tones! SMLC09 Abu Dhabi is just a bit colder nude shade, but still with great coverage. It blends really good with pale to mid-dark skin tones. I use this shades on a daily basis, depending on my mood or the clothes I wear on the given day, and these never disappointed me in any way. I buy them all over again when I run out of them as they’re pretty much some of my make-up basics.

Now, this LIPLI07 Satin Ribbon shade from Lingerie line is something completely different from everything I mentioned above. I already mentioned it in one of my previous posts (check it HERE). I was really excited to try these Lingerie lippies when they first came out. I remember the moment I entered the A-Cosmetics to pick up some of them. I was standing there, staring at the rack full of similar nude shades, asking myself just one question all over again: “What now?!”. You see, I’m a dark haired with a pretty much pale skin, and nude tones are just not my ideal partners. I always succeed to look like a ghost with pale shades on my lips. So, I was standing there, doing swatches on my hand, trying to decide which one to try…and Satin Ribbon won the medal! It’s been a few months now that we’re trying to build this relationship and it doesn’t seem to evolve into something more serious. This is a mid-cold nude tone with light pink undertone. The texture of this lip rouge is really thick and it dries abnormally fast on my lips, leaving a bit sticky feeling on my lips for a few minutes. Application is easy and smooth, and one layer of this should be enough for a really good coverage. Two layers are needed for solid night-time color. BUT! exfoliating is absolute MUST before applying this one, as it dries in a real matte effect. As for the color, Satin Ribbon is just the perfect shade for the mid-dark skin tones (that’s summertime for me, as I’m naturally pretty pale and I won’t get hard bronze tan).

LIPLI07 Satin Ribbon iz Lingerie linije je nešto sasvim drugačije od svega što sam navela i istakla u tekstu iznad. Već sam pominjala ovaj ruž u jednom od svojih prethodnih postova (možete ga pročitati na OVOM linku). Jedva sam čekala da isprobam ove Lingerie ruževe i nestrpljivo sam čekala da stignu u CG (sa malim zakašnjenjem). Sećam se momenta kada sam ušla u A-Cosmetics i ugledala policu punu nude nijansi. Samo jedno pitanje mi se motalo po glavi nekoliko minuta: “Šta sada?!”. Dakle, ja sam tamnokosa sa prilično svetlom puti, i nude tonovi ruževa prosto nisu moji idealni partneri. Nekako uvek izgledam kao neki malecki duh sa većinom takvih nijansi. I tako sam vam ja stajala tamo, mazala slojeve i slojeve boja na ruci u pokušaju da otkrijem kojoj nijansi da dam šansu…i Satin Ribbon se nekako uspravio u moru bežikastih varijacija. Evo već nekoliko meseci pokušavamo da izgradimo neki odnos, ali ne čini mi se da ćemo ikada preći u nešto ozbiljnije. Ovo je neka srednje-hladnjikava nude nijansa sa lagano pink podtonom. Tekstura ovog ruža je baš gusta i na mojim usnama se suši nadnaravno brzo, ostavljajući pomalo lepljiv osećaj na usnama koji traje nekoliko minuta. Nanošenje je jednostavno i lako, a jedan sloj boje je dovoljan da fino pokrije. Dva sloja boje su neophodna za upečatljiviji osećaj koji je često neophodan u večernjim satima. Ali! piling usana je apsolutno  NEOPHODAN pre nanošenja ovog ruža budući da se suši u izrazito mat završnicu. Što se same boje tiče, Satin Ribbon je savršena nijansa za srednje-tamne nijanse tena, što znači da je idealna za moj letnji ten, budući da umereno bleda kakva zapravo jesam najverovatnije neću dobiti neku jaču čokoladnu boju.
