Last week I bought 3 of the Soft Matte Lip Creams from NYX Cosmetics with their 3 for 2 offer and I have to say, these non lip gloss/ sticks are a god sent!
I do not know where I’ve been in the last century, I must have been living under a rock as I can NOT believe that I hadn’t gotten my hands on these little gems sooner!
They literally are the best of both worlds with its creamy, colour rich formula. It’s easier to apply than a lipstick because of the applicator- a wand that you’d usually expect from a gloss, but it doesn’t leave your lips in a gloopy, sticky mess as you would often find with glosses! What more can you ask for?
The lip creams glide on super smooth and it’s strangely satisfying as you coat your lips in one even stroke! It then dries to a lovely, satiny matte finish that makes your lips look super soft and supple. I also found that these are rather forgiving with dry lips as it doesn’t adhere to grim flakes as much as a lipstick would!
I got 3 shades in ISTANBUL, SAN PAULO and ABU DHABI, check out my swatches, I had pretty decent lighting so these swatches are very true to colour :)
I LOVE them all, I can not decide which colour I prefer, in fact I’m pretty sure I’ll be back on the site to purchase the remaining 8 shades… O.O
Well they are 3 for 2 at £5 each at the moment, it’ll be rude not to right?
At just £5 each I think these are a great budget beauty buy, the formulation is fantastic, great colour pay off, conditioning on the lips, gives a stunning finish and plus just look at the adorable packaging!!! Soo cute!
Have you tried any of these? Of course you have! You’ve not lived under a rock like me! So which shade’s your fave? Let me know!!!!
However if you haven’t tried them I seriously recommend that you do! So check them out on the NYX site HERE.
Thanks for reading guys!
PS: I may not be back for a few days as I’m due for LASER EYE SURGERY Tomorrow. I must rest my eyes and sleep (Doctors Orders ok!) I will be back though!
SEE you soon! Geddit?
