NYX SOFT MATTE LIP CREAM




Move over MAC matte lipsticks, I have a new matte must have, in the form of these gorgeous NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream's, (£5.50.) If I designed my perfect lipstick. it would be this fabulous formula, packaged the way a Louboutin lipstick is...I can dream. I'd say the formula was more of a soft matte lip mousse rather than a cream. I'm a sucker for hyped up products, and these were lurking all over my Bloglovin feed having their praises sang, rightly so too.

I very, very sadly only have two shades so far, London and Stockholm, two nude shades similar to Mac Viva Glam II and Velvet Teddy. I obviously plan to expand my family and get my hands on the rest of the nude shades as well as some of the dark dramatic options.
I can't remember the last time I purchased a lip product that wasn't high end, it's literally been years and years, but these have impressed me so much that I'm slowly losing so much of my make up snobbyness. I really want to try the NYX contour stick next.

Considering they are drug store products, the staying power and pigmentation is amazing, the pigmentation puts some high end lip products to shame, and the colour lasts on my lips for a good five hours, and doing so without getting dry and flakey.
The texture makes them such a joy to apply, I love the feeling of this on my lips, it's so comfortable and feels like there's nothing there, the doe foot applicator is also very easy and pleasurable to use, it's pretty precise and it's just the right size. The finish is ultra soft and smooth, with a matte finish that looks gentle but still highly pigmented.
I much prefer these to the NARS Velvet Matte lip pencils, the application is so much better, the colour pay off is twice as good and it's easier to use, not to mention the fact it's so much cheaper.


I'm absolutely in love with these little tubes of magic, and for the price you can't go wrong.
