Review: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream


NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Addis Abba

Product Info from NYX Cosmetics:
It's not lipstick, nor it is a gloss. It's like nothing you've experienced before. It's a lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte.

RETAIL PRICE: Php 350.00. Available at www.digitaltraincase.multiply.com

NET WEIGHT: 6.5 grams / 0.23 oz.

SHADES:
Available in 11 shades.


PROS:
* nice color pay-off! This is very pigmented you only need a little amount.
* satin-y texture that dries to a matte finish.
* non-drying and does not settle into fine lip lines.
* feels comfortable and lightweight as if I'm not wearing a matte lipcolor.
* amazing staying power! Leaves a bit of a stain even after eating and drinking.


CONS:
* some may find the texture drying if you're not used to matte lipsticks. (see tip below)


TIPS:
* Exfoliate your lips using a soft toothbrush or you can also use Extra Virgin Olive oil (EVOO) with a bit of sugar and gently rub on your lips. Wipe with a soft cloth.
* Apply lipbalm and let it absorb for a few minutes.

* Apply NYX's lipcream starting at the center of your lips going outwards.

* Let it dry for a few minutes. Apply clear gloss to prevent your lips from drying... My favorite is MAC Clear lipglass.


I RECOMMEND THIS TO:
Anyone who wants to try a long wearing lipcolor that feels comfortable on the lips.


OVERALL:
I love it! The texture is indeed unique plus the hot pink shade flatters my NC20 skintone.

so far i'm loving the 3 shades i got, but on my lips they don't last too long specially after i had eaten LOL but having the shades for the price is well worth the reapplication. i use etude's lipstick base so it isn't as drying and it brings out the original shade more ;-)
