REVIEW | NYX SOFT MATTE LIP CREAM

Shades: Istanbul, Antwep, Milan, Tokyo

NYX:
'Neither lipstick nor lip gloss this is matte lip cream. A new kind of pout paint that goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing'

I have only seen NYX cosmetics through YouTube and due to the popularity and the inexpensive price tag I decided to check it out at www.nyxcosmeticsstore.co.uk. On the site I stumbled across the soft matte lip cream and decided to pick up 4 shades.


Review:
They have the same concept as the Collection 2000 Cream Puff lip cream however with more available shades.

It has a sweet vanilla scent that is not over powering.The texture of these lip creams has a mousse like texture and glides onto the lips very smoothly. Each of the shades is fairly pigmented and dries to a matte finish. I would say it is semi-opaque as the color would be different depending on you natural lip color. I would suggest to use a lip liner to boost the colour pay off and make it last longer.


The doe foot applicator is easy to use, however you must exfoliate before use! As these lip cream will accentuate the flaw you may have on your lips.


The lasting power i would say is average last a few hours before having to reapply. Even after eating or drinking I didn't feel the need to reapply straight after.


Overall I love it, and will definitely repurchase and pick up the other shades. Available in 11 shades at the price point of £5 you really can't go wrong. 


The downfalls are that you can only purchase NYX products online as they are not available in Boots or Superdrugs in the UK and shipping cost £4:50 so its only worth it if your planning to buy more that one product. However the site is easy to use and ships within seven days.
