NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream | Swatches, Try On & Review

Friday, May 22, 2015

Where in the world have I been? I knew these existed, I saw them become sort of a big deal, and I still sat there like ; Eeehh, I don't need that. WRONG. 

Then I started a love affair with the Rimmel Show Off Matte Lip Velvet, which are essentially the same. BUT, the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are cuter (packaging wise), smell better (cupcakes!) but most importantly, they come in a wider variety of colors. Don't worry, I still truly do love the Rimmel ones, and nothing can replace Burning Lava, it's just the best red. End of discussion.

As always, I started things slow and only got two. And then I went back for 2 more within a week, oops! Yes it does make me sounds crazy and like I need help, which I do, but what's great for you, is that it proves that I really fell in love with them, hard.

Just like the Rimmel, the texture is just...It's so light and thin and just glides on. You feel like you are wearing nothing! They are also obviously insanely pigmented and can last quite a few hours. Basically, until you eat, you're good. However, whatever doesn't wipe off kinda acts like a stain, so it's there to stay (especially the bolder colors). Oh and they actually feel really comfortable on the lips.

Bottom line, if you can get your hands on these (I know it's hard in Canada, especially with the Targets gone, but try online?) DO IT!  

Oh, but a few slightly annoying things ; on the website there is 22 shades but in the store displays there's only half of them (Tokyo to Milan), so they can be hard to find in the shades you like (all depending). Also the caps get really dirty really fast as you can see. And lastly, Milan and Addis Ababa are more similar than they should be? Haha But I guess that was my bad...

Have you guys tried them? Is there other shades I MUST get? Or other liquid lipsticks I should try? Let me know!

Talk to you soon,
