NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream


I have found a new fave! And I've been wearing it constantly since I accidentally bumped into a NYX counter, which had just arrived to where I live. Needless to say I got excited. I had been eyeing the NYX soft matte lip creams online for quite some time and had been so close to ordering some, and now that they were physically in front me, I couldn't resist them. So I went and bought four different shades. Woopsy daisy.
The reason why I was interested in these in the first place, was that people were saying they are like liquid lipsticks. However now that I've tried them out, I don't think they are exactly that. Liquid lipsticks tend to dry really quickly and for some that is a huge problem, since they can also make your lips look really dry. These however feel super buttery on the lips for quite some time. They do eventually dry and turn matte, it just takes quite a while. 

The pigment is amazing, they have many different shades to choose from and the price is reasonable. The only problem is that the packaging isn't very true to the shades. For example the shade Istanbul, which by the packaging looks like it would be a very fair baby pink. Instead it's actually a rather dark barbie pink. Small things and if you do your research before purchasing, all is good. 


The shades I bought are Istanbul, Antwerp, Abu Dhabi and San Paulo. As I mentioned above, Istanbul is a lovely, cool toned barbie pink. Antwerp is a warmer pink and it reminds me of rasberries and summer evenings. Abu Dhabi is probably my favourite of these four: it's the perfect Kylie Jenner shade, a warm brown which looks very natural on the lips. San Paulo reminds me of plums and will be perfect for autumn!


Have you tried the NYX Soft matte lip creams?
Which shade is your favourite?

  1. Love the look of Antwerp on you - I've been eyeing up the Ibiza shade which is also a lovely pink... but every time I go to the store it's sold out!

    1. Thank you Elise. I'm in love with the shade too :) I just googled Ibiza and it looks really pretty as well! I'd love Stockholm and London but they were sold out too. I guess they're super popular atm!

  7. Even though the packaging doesn't show the true shade, they all look absolutely gorgeous on you, hon! Stunning!!! I think Istanbul is my fave on you but they all bring out something different which is lovely. These are definitely worth trying, I might need to make a little order soon ;) Thanks for a great and very tempting review :) Hope your week is going super great, sweetheart! Are you soon in London, lovely?

    1. Abu Dhabi is great. And so is London, which is veeery similar. I have to agree, they have so many shades and a lot of them are pretty similar to each other. But AbuDhabi would definitely look so amazing on you hon <3 xxx
