Review: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

I love me some NYX lip products! I saw that NYX recently came out with some new colors of their Soft Matte Lip Creams and decided to snag some up. I already had this in Antwerp so I decided to swatch this one along with four of the new colors.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream is said to be “Neither lipstick nor lip gloss, this matte lip cream is a new kind of lip color that goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing.”

As the description stated, these lip products aren’t lipsticks or glosses. These act more like liquid creams that apply so easily and pigmented. They come with a doe-foot applicator, which I love because I think it makes it very easy to apply straight onto the lips. I also LOVE the smell of these lip creams. They smell exactly like vanilla cupcakes!

Without eating, these last about 4 to 5 hours on me. They are not very long lasting but are easy to reapply throughout the day. These matte lip creams were not drying on me but I wouldn’t say they were moisturizing either. Because these are matte, I suggest to exfoliate your lips and apply a lip balm before applying the lip creams. I highly suggest this lip product!
