NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream is the learner’s permit of liquid lipsticks. The afforable price and low maitnence is your first step toward your grown ass women liquid lipstick.
The formula is a creamy, mousse like texture that glides over your lips. While it doesn’t fully dry down on your lips, their is minimal transfer and no bleeding –with or without a lip liner. The pigmentation –eh, it depends on the shade. The nudes in this line are fan-freaking-tastic. The berries, beautiful. The deep dark shades, save your money on most of them. You can make them work with a lipliner as a base if you’re really into the color but they can still leaves streaks on your lips rather than even color
They have just your standard doe-foot applicator. Nothing fancy. There isn’t any give to the wand but you can get a nice clean lip line if that is your aesthetic. The shade I’m wearing is Abu Dhabi. It’s a brown nude and so pretty. On my lips it looks a little pink but I naturally have a lot of color to my lips. Some people have lips similar to their skin tone. I don’t. But the shade itself is more of a yellow brown.
There are a bunch of shades to choose from. Here are my favorites:
Prague – darkened raspberry shade - whenever I wear it, people ask me what I have on my lips and are always surprised it’s NYX and not something super fancy. (fancy means expensive)
Addis Ababa- hot pink- I. Love. Hot. Pink. Lipstick.
Cannes- peachy nude- Something I could wear everyday!
