NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream


It looks like a gloss, feels like a gloss but it is neither glossy nor a gloss. It’s got to be NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream which goes on like a gloss but dries down to a matte lip cream which is not a lipstick. Stockholm is a pinkish peach shade which looks very natural on my lips.

I don’t think my lips look good in matte textures as they accentuate the lines and it’s just not flattering. The shade is nice for everyday use but it’s so drying. Furthermore, staying power was average and I had to re-apply after 2 hours even though I hadn’t had anything to eat or drink. It’s too drying on its own but if I apply it over lipstick, then it’s more bearable.

There are 20 shades available at Sephora outlets @ RM26 each.

  1. I love how pigmented it is and I have two of the lip cream. I agree with you on the moisture level and what I did was to apply lip balm before this lip cream. This shade looks good on you!
