NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream Review & Swatches


Lipstick? No. Lipgloss? No. NYX's Soft Matte Lip Creams are truly the best of BOTH worlds. Hate super shiny & sticky lip glosses? Hate the heaviness of a lipstick? Well this is TRULY the in-between product we've all been waiting for. I picked these two up from ULTA ($5.99) and I'm going back for more (22 shades). Anyone that doesn't like MATTE lipstick, may not like this. But for me it felt good to the lips and wasn't chalky or sahara dry. While I was out shopping, I received THREE compliments on Antwerp (the pink I'm wearing below), from different aged women. They loved the color! That made me feel FANCY!!! HaHaHa I started singing the Charli XCX (she's from the UK) verse from Iggy Azalea's song 'Fancy'...I'm So Fancy! LOL The video is so funny. Anyone that loves the movie Clueless will have a good laugh. Have you ever seen my real-life, dress like Cher from Clueless moment? Tartan and Stripes! LOL Have A Great Weekend! >.<

  4. These look perfect, love the colour and the application too. Looks stunning on you. Tartan like in Clueless would be perfect. I found a pair of tartan skinny trousers in the same colour and pattern as the skirt in the movie and I am very tempted to get them, hahaha!! Need them, it's getting freaking cold here, hahaha!! Have a gorgeous weekend my sweet <333

  9. Both these shades look totally gorgeous on you Kim! Not surprised at all that you received all kinds of compliments. I've heard how great these are but NYX products usually have this odd sweet scent that I can't get past. Happy weekend!

  15. They just recently built an ULTA 5 minutes from my house! For $5.99 that price can't be beat! I love how matte lipcolors last longer, but they can feel drying at times. I will def give this one a try! Happy Friday Kim!

  16. I can almost taste the scone, you're so fancy! :0
    Thanks for sharing. I like the idea of a matte gloss. They really look great on you but not so matte because of the brightness. Perhaps it is just the lighting?

    You say they are not "sahara dry" but are they still dry feeling? It is why I stay away from matte unless I 'must' wear matte...

  19. I am always a little wary about matte lipstick because i already have to keep up with my dry lips but i do make exceptions when i like a product. You sold me on these though and i will definitely pick up a couple too. Thanks for the review. The video got me a little distracted though :)). I is cute.Hadn't seen the video until now. I always liked the song. Have a lovely weekend Kim.

  20. Hahaha you are so funny. Your posts include so much of your character and I love you for it! These lip creams look totally up my street. I find the MAC mattes too drying and 'tuggy'. You got THREE compliments? From strangers? Wow. That must be an American thing. Ps Prince Harry is also my fave royal. That ginger-haired thing. Caught naked playing billiards. What a guy.

  23. Two in one beauty products aren't always great, but when it comes to mix of lip-gloss and lipstick- I'm always all in! I have one Avon product that is a lipstick and a lip-balm all in one- it looks like a lipstick but only in the middle it is lipstick and around colourless balm- hope I explained it right!Anyhow, I use it all the time.

    These ones are so lovely! so many shades to pick from!

  24. That pink does look great on you Kim!! I am going to have to try it. My lips are dying for some color and the price you cannot beat!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I didn't recognize you right away in tartan blazer and tee with stripes- I though it was that other character- what was her name? I cannot for the life of me remember the name of any celebrity....is it Brittany or sth like that? the one that died really young in real life- poor thing...you know I always wondered has she got health problems because I could see on her face that something was wrong.

    Anyway, you look adorable!!!!

  26. You look fabulous Kim! Those colors look amazing on you! I really like NYX Butter Gloss and Butter Lipstick, so I may give this a try as well! Have a great weekend!

  27. Sounds great, love the colours and the in between nature of this product (hate the heaviness of lip stick) is a winner for me.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Both colors are lovely, i will try my shade at nearest Ulta tomorrow. Thanks Kim. Both colors are pretty on you by the way.

  29. Hello Kim, Why do these matte lipsticks all look so good on you? I swear matte lipstick feathers out, dries my lips and leaves them all cracky each time I use them. In fact, most lipsticks do that to my lips. I'm quite surprised that these NYX lippies look red in the bottle but pink when applied.

    With regard to your comment, I've got no idea what's my mum's beauty secret too. Hahaha... She sometimes worries too much and does all the unhealthy stuff but she still looks just as young.

  31. Hahah this song is funny, haven't heard it before. I hate super shiny and sticky lip glosses and I love matte lipsticks! So I guess I'll love this product too. And when women make you a compliment about it, you should go back for more!

  47. OMG KIM, that shade is SUPER CUTE! They opened an Ulta by me months ago, but I have never been. I will have to go and get this, because I have been adding blush to my lipstick to make it more of a matte, so this sounds perfect for me! and $5.99 is something I can afford. Huzzah!

  48. Hi Kim, hope you have been well….love both these vivacious hues on you, so pretty! I've been too busy with work and studies recently so I had to take a break from blogging. I will try yo get back to it when I have some free time. Missed reading your posts…Have a great week. You can find me at frillsandthrills@hotmail.com

  49. I don't think I have ever been complimented on a lipstick ! thats a new one for me :)
    I can totally understand, because it does look really good, imagine in person its even better.
    And the price is perfect.

  51. I love matte finish on perfect baby lips like yours, not on mine, that have an irregular shape :-) I love especially the orangey one!
