If my memory serves me correctly, the Nude Matte range by NYX was introduced sometime in 2012, and I'm just now getting around to picking some of these up. I chose this shade, Confession along with another called Skinny Dip.
Confession is a deep olive green matte with a hint of brown to it. The shade in and of itself is flawless, I'm Irish, so greens are quite flattering on me, if I do say so myself. The formula however, is what really wows me.
This thing is like butta! So incredibly soft and pigmented, but only gave me a teensy bit of fallout (only in application) when I wasn't being careful. I wore this over MAC Haux with Urban Decay Snakebite in the crease and I lost count of the compliments I got on my makeup that day. Its a nice take on a neutral tone and it made my pale blue eyes SING!
- Great pigmentation.
- Blended well.
- Soft application.
- Average wear, no early creasing.
- Neutral but not neutral.
- Little bit of fallout in application if you're rough with it.
Overall I'm pretty much thrilled. Greens are lacking in my collection; I don't know why. For someone with Auburn hair, that ship should have already sailed! I love this little green dude.
