How many lipsticks are enough for a girl? Better you never ask this to a girl. It’s like asking how old is she. There is no definite answer to this question. Even a girl might not be sure because even reds have different tones like pinks, browns & nudes have. So the number keeps on multiplying. And then there is warm, cool & neutral tones for every shade. A girl might never even count how many she owns because she is not supposed to. Her lipstick drawer is her prized possession. It’s her treasure that she has accumulated over a long period of time after painting her inner wrist with multiple shades in the name of swatches. Now she loves swatching lipsticks. She might not even not ask the SA to clean her hand because every time she looks at her hand, a faint smile swims on her lips. It’s like her first crush.
So this girl now has gotten her hands on the newly launched NELF Powder Matte Lipsticks in 5 different shades. Do you want to know what she feels about them? Stay with her…

Vita Pink, Sweet Pink, Wine Wellness, Bloody Marry, Merlot, Eurydice, Shocking Pink, Pure Red, Indie Flick, Summer Breeze, Tea Rose, Butter.
Fragrance & Texture
There is almost no fragrance to the lipsticks. I could hardly smell a thing. Also there is no weird taste to be noticed after application. Coming to the texture of the lipsticks, they looks very powder-y and dry but surprisingly runs like butter on lips. The moisture content inside the lipsticks is good enough to provide comfort.
This range, Powder Matte, is definitely more at pigmentation and buttery texture as compared to NELF The Miami Stick Matte Lipsticks. The stick runs very smoothly on lips but there is no patchiness to be seen in the texture. The lipsticks give quite an even application and opaque finish.
NELF Powder Matte Lipsticks, definitely wins heart when it comes to the finish. Matte look is very tricky. Matte lips could look dry, drenched and dehydrated.
The finish of Nelf Powder Matte lipsticks is purely matte. But the finish does not dry out her lips or looks patchy after some time. Unlike liquid lipsticks, bullet matte lipsticks are more comfortable on lips, as this girl feel. The matte finish on lips look very rich and bold at the same time. It’s all because the lipsticks have nice color pigments. The lipsticks do transfer bit but stays for 3-4 hours in one go surviving mini meals/ few sips.
NELF Powder Matte PM01 Vita Pink
A pink shade in her kitty is inevitable. Vita Pink is a beautiful warm pink with faint hints of peach which makes it wearable & desirable for every skin tone from fair to wheatish. The shade is very apt for everyday wear for college/office. For casual day outs, this shade rocks.
NELF Powder Matte PM04 Bloody Mary
It is another warm shade from the range. It is Burgundy. It is not that vampy dark Burgundy, but a wearable Burgundy. The shade has less of brown and more of red.
NELF Powder Matte PM05 Merlot
Merlot is a cool toned shade. A mix of red & pink, this shade is quite suitable to give a bold and rich look. This girl is not much fan of cool toned shades, but this won’t wash out her wheatish skin tone since it’s high on color and drama.
NELF Powder Matte PM09 Indie Flick
She loves playful colors. Indie Flick is such shade. An orange but that would break her heart. An orange that has warmth, that has hope & that has ambition. It’s her kind of orange. Her most favorite from the range.
NELF Powder Matte PM11 Tea Rose
She loved NYX Tea Rose. But NELF Powder Matte Tea Rose is not NYX Tea Rose. NELF Powder Matte Tea Rose is a cool toned mauve shade. She never likes to wear mauve. It just does not agree with her skin tone. Period.
NELF 9 to 6 range was quite impressive but NELF Powder Matte is definitely an awesome find too. She just wishes NELF brings parabene free lipsticks as just going lead free is not enough.
This was all about her experience with NELF Powder Matte Lipsticks. A girl who will never stop hoarding lipsticks. Her lipsticks are her inspiration to face this cold & rigid world. Her lipstick gives her confidence & strength to make her dreams come true. In fact her lipsticks make her dream more & bigger.
Are you this girl? I think I am this girl.
