As you might remember from my previous post raving about Wet n Wild lipsticks, I love lip color. It really adds the finishing touches to any look, whether it’s just an average day at the office or dinner on a Saturday night.
During the peak of the whole matte and Kylie Jenner lip trend, I discovered the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams at my local Bed, Bath and Beyond. I had been searching for the perfect nude lip color – one that wasn’t drying and would last all day – so I decided to try these. In the past, I’ve used the NYX Butter Gloss and absolutely loved it over another nude/pink NYX lipstick, so I thought the Lip Creams wouldn’t be that much different.
After falling in love over and over again with every application, here’s why the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are a beauty must have.
Honestly, the first time I applied the Lip Cream, I was confused. The consistency was so much different than I was used to with lipstick and lip gloss. It’s a very creamy and wet formula, which is the point of “lip cream.” It feels like applying a velvety mousse on your lips. It’s very creamy and lightweight. Once it sets its very matte, it doesn’t slide around and it’s so long lasting!
Personally, I’ve only delved into the nude and pink shades because it’s more practical for every day wear, but there’s a very large range of colors. They offer 34 shades on the NYX site, and obviously your local store varies. Seriously check them out! They have tons of nudes and pinks, as well as bright reds and dark purples – it’s really incredible. *Swatches featured in image below: Abu Dhabi (on top) & Stockholm (on bottom)
Of course, pigment is one of the factors when deciding if makeup products are good or not and this product takes the cake. These lip creams pack so much pigment in their tiny container. With one swipe, they leave intense, creamy color. Having mentioned cake, they also have a very subtle sweet smell that I absolutely love.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are definitely my most loved and most used lip products. I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for matte lip color with a lot of fun color choices.
