NYX Matte Lipstick in Alabama - Swatches and a Quick Review

 We've been obsessing with matte lippies lately.
We've bought different lipsticks, lip stains, and lip creams!
One of our recent buys is

 NYX Matte Lipstick in Alabama

We're very much in love with NYX's Soft Matte Lip Cream and this is our first time to try the lipstick.

 Bought this from Digital Traincase for around Php300. It's on sale now for Php280.

on my lips

 It's a bit darker for my taste. I still prefer Monte Carlo. But it performs rather well.
It's less drying than the soft matte creams and less lip bleeding too. The pigmentation is great and still long-lasting!

Oh! And there's a video by Bianca Valerio which I find super helpful for those who love wearing red lippies like me! Check it out HERE.

 That's all! By the way, stay tuned for our New Year Giveaway! I'll post the mechanics and list of prizes tomorrow!
