NYX Matte Lipstick & Soft Matte Lip Cream
Lipstick in Shocking Pink, Lip Cream in Addis Ababa
I was going back and forth on whether to do this as 2 reviews or one review. They are two different products but both are NYX Matte products. So I will do one review in two parts. I snagged these from Harmons - Face Values. They must have just stocked because I was just there last week and they didn't have the Matte Lipsticks.
Soft Matte Lip Cream
"It's not a lipstick, nor is it a gloss, it's like nothing you've experienced before. It's lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte." - NYX Bottle
The applicator is the standard doe foot, which for these is wonderful. I know you may be thinking "it looks so dry!" It does have a almost powder look/feel to it, but it is so creamy! The color payoff of the lip creams is FA-NOMINAL! The below swatch is just one swipe! Look at how opaque it is! Overall I love wearing the matte lip creams, I have paired them with lipsticks, but they really don't need it. They aren't drying at all, but I also always apply chapstick, lip balm or a lip primer before matte lip products to ensure my lips are smooth.
NYX Matt Lipstick
Isn't the package so cute!
Oh I was so excited to find this in Harmons! The color is just so bright!!! And look at the bullet, the pointness of it!
So now that I have another pink matte lipstick I will be looking for a red one. I really love NYX lip products, I have never had an issue with color payoff, wear time, or funky looks one way in the package but other way on my lips.
I did however have trouble trying to photograph this lipstick, it is just so bright and wonderful, but my camera was being a PITA!
Like I said I was able to pick these up in Harmons -Face Values, each were $5.99
I really love matte lipsticks, because to me its like getting two lipsticks in one, because if I want them to shine I can just add a clear gloss or a complimentary colored gloss.
I want to know are you a fan of matte lips?
