NYX Alabama Matte Lipstick ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark red with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, smooth consistency that glided on without tugging on the lips and delivered even coverage. The color wore well for over six hours and left a slight stain behind, though the formula was neither drying nor hydrating over time.

The Matte Lipstick is supposed to be “highly pigmented” and have a “velvety, non-glossy” finish. In general, the formula has semi-opaque to opaque color coverage with a velvety texture that glides on without tugging but doesn’t have a lot of slip, so the lipstick won’t slide around while worn. The formula varied from non-drying to moderately drying with wear times that ranged from four to over six hours (deeper, reddish shades lasted quite long). It has a mint scent and no discernible taste. I noticed that the packaging had a tendency to twist up the lipstick too easily (even barely holding it) and sometimes would twist down as I would apply it directly from the tube.

NYX Merlot Matte Lipstick ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish plum with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips. The texture was lightweight, creamy without being too emollient or slippery, and comfortable to wear. It wore well for just over five hours and was just a touch drying after four hours of wear.

Aria

NYX Aria Matte Lipstick ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark magenta berry with cooler undertones and a barely-there pearl. The texture was thinner and seemed to have a lot more waxiness to it, which resulted in semi-opaque coverage and less even coverage. The lipstick stayed on well for five and a half hours but was moderately drying over time.

NYX Siren Matte Lipstick ($5.99 for 0.16 oz.) is a deep, reddened berry with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. The consistency was lightly creamy with some slip (more than other shades in the range), which resulted in more of a sheen for the first few hours of wear. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly, though a bit of color pulled into my lip lines over the five hours it lasted on me. The formula was slightly drying after three hours of wear.
