NYX soft matte lip cream [review w hand and lip swatches!!]


I have been postponing this review since forever. 
As soon as these babies came out I was sooo desperate to try them out, 
so when NYX cosmetics US contacted me
and I was so happy that they were sending me two of these lip products just for me.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in SMLC 04 London, 
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in SMLC05 Antwerp

Antwerp, London


Here's what I think about the products...

Antwerp, London

A lipgloss kind of tube, 
sponge tip applicator.
see through shade
the cutest words on the packaging.

This might happen to the packaging, but you can squeeze the cap right back :)

Applies really creamy and smoothly, 
as described. 
But dries to a super matte finish.

Very pigmented - 
just like a melted lipstick

Not buildable. 
Well, technically it is - 
but the less you apply on your lips 
the better it's going to look on, 
it's pigmented anyway so you'll get the shade in the tube 
with the minimum amount of product

Quite long lasting - 
almost like a lip stain ..
I'd give it 5-6 hours 
by this time though it starts tearing. 

Antwerp, London

Antwerp: a rosy pink with a coral undertone, looks really nice on people with my skintone, 
just perfect for summer. a really lovely shade
London: a nude brown shade with a slight peachy undertone to it



Applies Creamy
Dries Matte. 
London, Antwerp

I don't like the smell. 
It has a strong artificial toffee smell, 
but it does not linger on the lips, 
which is good. 
wearing London

wearing Antwerp

I quite like these lip products as I'm loving the matte lip lately, 
however, I strongly suggest to apply it sheer, 
as it would look slightly "drag" and a bit too much if built up.
