NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Review



Fellow beauty bloggers have tried NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream. After reading their rave reviews, I grew curious, especially because the product claims to be "nothing you've experienced before" -- TRUST me, honey. I've experienced a LOT of the best beauty products.

Let's see if the product's claim is true:

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream claims:

"It's not lipstick, nor is it gloss. It's like nothing you've experienced before."

"It's lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte."

My Take:

  • It's not thick like lipstick. It's not shiny and gooey like gloss.
  • It was certainly not like anything I've tried before -- again, I have tried a LOT of things.
  • It goes on silky and light, but produced a subtle matte effect.
  • I barely felt it on my lips, unlike lipstick nor gloss.
  • The pigment looked soft and subtle.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream claims:

 
"Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing."
 

My Take:

  •  For me, who constantly drinks beverages and licks her lips, it lasted about an hour, which felt like an eternity for a lip product. (Most gloss last about five minutes).
  • Not sure if it was moisturizing, but lip cream definitely did not dry the lips.
  • Likes:

     
    • Easy-to-use twist top applicator. It applies the cream evenly.
    • Great muted pigmentation. 
    • Goes on smooth and silky.
    • Long lasting (well, long enough).
    • Price is right (about $6 at the local drug store) -- quality cheap makeup
    • Does not dry lips

    Dislikes:

    • None.

    Final Score:

    5/5

    Repurchase?

    Absolutely!

    Pictures:


    An applicator enables precise drawing.

    Product line comes in 11 colors. I used "Abu Dhabi."

    Lip cream wore for a long time, and did not dry up lips.

    Subtle pigmentation created a natural appearance.

    Thanks for reading.

    16. Hm. I really like that. ...I often have chapped lips though so I'm wondering if that would settle into lines... Great color though. Undecided.

    17. I've only tried one color from this line (Tokyo) and it doesn't really suit me. But I love everything else about it, definitely gonna pick up other colors.

    21. I just bought two of these, a very dark red and a bright pink. I do like the application of this product, definitely requires lipliner...but the colours were too bright for my taste so I'm going to exchange for a diff shade.
