These have lip products have been on my list for over a year now and I FINALLY have them! I don’t know why but the NYX counters here were always out of stock of these, so when I found them, I fell like I just had to snatch them.
The Nyx Soft Matter Lip Creams did live to my expectations. They had a velvet matte finish and it was very light weight. The scent of the product wasn’t strong and in fact it smelt delicious! Although I was expecting this to be long wearing especially after a meal. But it was 50% off after I had my lunch but that ‘test’ is usually a hit or a miss.
What I was surprised about this range was that, on the exterior some of the ‘nude’ shades look very muted but in reality, they are quite vivid. Vivid-ness are definitely a hit or a miss for me because some of them make my teeth look yellow and I feel that the shade Antwerp did that *sad face*.
The packaging is quite simple and I really like the applicator because it isn’t too long which allows you to have more control during application. I was kind of deceived on the shade Milan because I thought it was a pink nude but it came out more vivid on application. I would say, out of the three shades that I got, I prefer Ibiza the most, for it was more true to color from the packaging and it had blue undertones.
Even after these minor issues, I am still looking forward to purchasing more of their ‘actual’ nude shades because this product is really comfortable to wear and really at the end of the day, that is what really matters, right?
Would love to hear from you!
