When it comes to darker shades of lipstick, I’m a bit of a newbie. I finally found one that I actually like on myself, it was so hard to choose but I decided to share my choice with you, it’s the NYX Matte Lipstick in Goal Digger!
So NYX is everywhere at the moment, my local Boots now have a huge stand and where better to head for advice on the perfect dark lipstick for me than to the NYX counter. I went one lunch time and spoke to a wonderful and helpful lady. I just said I wanted a dark plum shade and she picked this out straight away. Not only did she choose off the top of her head, she made sure I liked it and then tested it out on me and expertly applied it to my lips! I did feel a little bit nervous because I have never worn anything as daring as this during the day let alone to work! I told her how nervous I was about wearing it and she gave me some great advice about how it was all in the confidence!
I ended up buying this lipstick and the NYX Nebula Lip pencil which compliments it perfectly.
I have to I am genuinely ecstatic about this purchase, I’m glad I went for this instead of a liquid lipstick because I had read about how hard some dark colours are to build up and didn’t want an awful clumpy mess!
The lipstick itself is really easy to apply and the coverage is insane once you have built it up to your personal taste. It’s really moisturising too, which is perfect for a matte lipstick. I like to apply my first few coats with a lip brush, which provides the perfect base so you can effortlessly build the colour.
With Goal Digger, I love how you can either have a nice sweep of purple or build it up to a really dark plum. It stays put all day and even when you touch up during the day, it doesn’t leave an awful powdery mess!
I took a quick photo to show you what it looks like on the lips but when I wear this normally I go around the edges with the NYX Wonder Pencil to make them perfect!

For my first NYX purchase, I was extremely impressed. The whole experience definitely made me eager to try out more of their products. I really want to try the Lip Lingerie range and some of the warm toned shadows look amazing! I honestly had no idea they had such an extensive range of products available, I just hope everything is as great as this lipstick!
