I recently stumbled into my local Ricky’s, an establishment both ripe with pure trash and excellent quality makeup, while looking for a very last minute Halloween wig, and while I was checking out I ran into (literally, I ran into it because I wasn’t looking) their NYX stand. And because I can’t help myself and was feigning for new lipstick, don’t tell my sig-other, I dived right on in. Since the only lipstick I’m interested in right now is matte, I went straight for their Matte Lipstick, swatching about and having the time of my life while screaming “NO THANKS!” without making eye contact to every unhappy Ricky’s employee that begrudgingly asked if I needed help.
Anyways, I ended up leaving with a beautiful coraly orange shade called Indie Flick (mostly because it’s the only shade that wasn’t like anything that I didn’t already have) and went up to the register to purchase and when my little tie dyed Ricky’s employee told me that my total was only $6.71 including tax, I signed my name on the dotted line and ran outside to rip off that plastic packaging and shellack my lips to their fullest. Y’all, I’m in love.
The NYX Matte Lipsticks are highly pigmented, glide on smoothly and stay on all day. They come in all shades, from nudes to rich pinks and reds, so there’s a color (or 5) for everyone, and best off they are $6 each. Sometimes the beauty world hands you something so good that you cannot possibly pass it up, and right now, it’s landing in our laps in the form of $6 matte lipstick in every shade imaginable. Pick them up at Ulta, Target or, of course, Rickys.
