Hi Lovelies ♥
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend 🙂
Its been a while since I have posted a actual beauty post.
I know these NYX – Soft Matte Lip Creams have been out for about 2 years if I am not mistaken, and I have only recently jumped on the train with these.
I only own two of these colours, and yes I am getting more. Wish my Ulta had all 20 in the NYX display
♥ There are 22 shades in the collection.
♥ The matte creams are named after cities of the world, which I think is pretty neat. So if some ask you ‘what do you have on your lips’? you can say ‘Istanbul, or Prague. Who needs to visit those cities, when you can have them on your lips lol Just kidding go visit those places if you can.
♥ Description *
It is neither a lipstick nor lip gloss, this matte lip cream is a new kind of lip color 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.
♥ What it is *
Highly pigmented, matte lip cream
♥ What it does *
Creates various matte lip looks
♥ How to Use it *
Apply directly to lips, or over lipstick. Apply with lip liner to define outline of lips
$5.99 at Ulta
$6.00 on the NYX website
♥ Overall Thoughts
Once applied, the Soft Matte Lip Cream dries to a matte finish. It not is heavy on the lips, it is transferable until the matte cream dries, which takes about a minute or so to dry. I can say that they are not as drying as some other matte lipsticks, but the lip cream is not moisturising, but it is not like you would need to apply a lip balm before you apply the matte cream, unless you suffer from really dry lips.
One thing I did notice is that by looking at the tube you would think the lip cream would be highly pigmented (which they do claim it is) I do find that you do have to apply it like 2 -4 times to get the colour you want. I do not find that they are difficult to apply at all or not at least with the colours I have.
They last about 2-4 hours on me if I don’t eat anything, they do not move if I drink something. They are really quite long-lasting which I like, as I am not one for re-applying lip products during the day. Unless it starts looking patchy and we all know that is not cute.
I think if you have not tried these you should give them ago, if you are not into extremely matte lip products
