Review: Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream


NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream are describe as 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. I decided to give it a try as I’m currently on the hunt for good lip products to stick to. I got two shades London and Transylvania. 

London is a nude brown but it’s not overly pale Similar to Wet n Wild Bare it All lipstick!  It is also a perfect lip color for heavy Smokey eye.

Lined lips with MAC Chestnut

Transylvania is one of those intimidating shades, as the tube makes it seem like it is nearly black. I would describe it as a purple-toned burgundy or plum shade. I was kind of bummed because it was the sheerest of the bunch, when I really wanted the color that was displayed on the tube. It is build-able, but I find that it looks a bit uneven. Lining my entire lips before putting it on did the trick.

Packaging: It comes in a small round plastic bottle with a doe applicator.

: It has a mousse-like consistency and cake-like scent to it, which I absolutely love, initial finish is very creamy and matte, but after about half an hour it becomes fully matted.

This product comes with a doe foot applicator for precision when applying on the lips.

Overall thoughts: 
I really don’t like this much but for the price i cant complain. I'll use it up because it is so hard to find matte lip products, especially at an affordable price. These lip creams are very matte (a little drying) and not very long lasting. I can get these to last over 4 hours if I need to- eating is the only thing that really disturbs these creams, because minutes after applying, they set to a dry matte finish slowly but surely. The pigmentation is buildable. A 3-4 dip of the product of needed to give you a full application on your lips. You kind of need to dig in the applicator in the tube to get the product out. 

Price: $6 / N1500 / C30

  1. After seeing so much rave about these lippies i went and got a whole bunch, how i regret that! Some are so streaky and apply patchy. I think its better to invest in the more expensive brands that offer better formulas

    1. I agree with you(youtube made me do it). Of the two i got London was manageable but Transylvania? i could write a whole post on how bad it was. Needless to say i'll be giving it away to whoever cares to receive it. Yes definitely invest in brands with better formula cos most times you get what you pay for.
