Hey my Beauties How are you all doing :)
Todays post is on my little collection of NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams I have owned for quite a while now :)
You all have probably seen a serious amount of reviews about these especially around the time they were first released which was around Spring of last year but in my eyes there is never too many reviews about something as its nice to know different peoples opinions :)
The one thing i love about NYX is that its available from alot of online sites not just one or two so there are different price ranges. Originally these cost about $6 each but there is a couple of ebay stores who do bulk sales on NYX in which i will put links at the end of the blog post for you :)
These lip creams were actually the first ever Matte lip product i ever tried imagine and I was more excited about that.
There are 11 shades available and even with just 11 shade i found it hard to choose which shades to get lol awwww decisions decisions. Lets talk a little about the packaging first. You are getting a sturdy plastic tube with a black lid. Each tube is different colour actually to represent the actually shade it is. I love the writing all around it and love the way it is not going to fade away like some products you get.
Dont be fooled by the packaging as its very familiar to a lip gloss even the doe-foot applicator is like what you would get from a lip gloss but believe me they are not a gloss :)
On the front of the packaging it says :)
It's not a lipstick nor is it a gloss It's like nothing you have ever experienced before. It's lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte.
I was pleasantly by the formula on these. When i first swatched these i though holy moly this is thick and very very pigmented. They look like a light weight moose that you would eat :) :) The cream is so creamy that even the amount which comes out on the doe-foot can be too much for your lips. I mean the amount that come off could actually two people. These glide on so so nicely and feels like butter on the lips. I can not believe the amount of pigmentation that you get from each one of these its incredible.
so onto the shades
Stockholm: This is a lovely pinky brown shade its a perfect nude. Its a perfect MLBB cream I love this as an every day shade :)
Antwerp: This is one of the popular shades :) This is a lovely pinky coral shade it really compliments my skintone. I loved this shade in the summer and still do its a lovely way of brightening up your lips
Next up is
San Paulo: I knew this would be a shade i would love and wear on a regular basis. This is a stunning rosy pink a deep cool toned shade. Its stunning against my warm toned skin. I actually got alot of compliments wearing this.
Milan: This is another stunning shade. Its another rosy pink but brighter than San Paulo and more pinker :) I really like this shade too and is perfect for everyday wear.
I was actually surprised by these little beauties. The fact that they are matte you would think that they would be very drying when in fact they feel moisturising. Now not your typical moisturising lipstick but you wont find that your lips are crying out for hydration haha. If your lips are particularly very dry well then thats when you will find them soaking into every line and all you have to do is apply a lip balm under the lip cream like i did in the above picture the "Milan lip swatch". I found they lasted a good 3-4 hour before i notice them fading but if you are eating or drinking they will fade a good bit. The fact that these lip creams are thick and very pigmented i do highly recommend bringing a compact mirror with you to apply as you might need to blend out some of the more darker shades. I want to try out more shade like maybe more darker shade because i can guess that they would last even longer
I highly recommend these to anyone who wants to try something different to their usual lipsticks and glosses. These lip creams are brilliant to give you that matte effect but not leave your lips feel parched
For the price they are well worth it and will last for ages because a little goes a long way
You can buy these on the NYX Website for $6
