NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream | First Impressions
NYX has become a brand that I want to try loads from. After trying one of their Suede Cream Liquid Lipsticks, I wanted to try more of their lip products. Before I tried the Suede Cream lipstick, I originally wanted to try a Soft Matte Lip Cream. I'm going to do a Pia Mia inspired makeup look soon and I found a photo on Instagram by the makeup artist, Ariel Tejada of the makeup look he did on Pia and what he used. This NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade London is what she had on, so that's exactly what I got.
After picking this up from the post office (because I annoyingly missed the delivery), I was so excited to try it. I applied it as soon as I got back into the car. As I'm writing this, I've only tried this Lip Cream once so all of this is going to be my first impressions.
The description on the Boots.com website: 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 lipsticks also moisturizing.
This has a nice scent to it, it smells like cake! This product is creamy, which I kind of expected as it is a lip 'cream'. I love how easy it is to apply with the doe foot applicator and it glides on smoothly. I did use it without a lipliner, but next time I use this I will definitely use it with a lipliner because I have a lipliner that'd be perfect with this.
I love how pigmented this lip cream is. This shade is a lovely beige nude! I found that this lip cream wasn't drying, but I already had a lip balm on before I applied this so my lips were smooth, but this product didn't dry them out. This product is also comfortable to wear and isn't sticky. The first layer was a little bit patchy, however after I applied a second layer it was fine and I left it to dry in between each layer. It does dry matte, which I love. This lasted on my lips for around 3 hours without eating or drinking.
I'm super impressed with this lip cream and I love it, I really want to try more. I also got a NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipstick, so expect a review on that soon also. I got this lip cream for £5.50 from Boots!
