NYX SOFT MATTE LIP CREMES: REVIEW AND SWATCHES



Shades from left to right: Morocco // London // Cairo // Istanbul // Transylvania
I realised recently when looking at my makeup that I'd accumulated a number of the NYX soft matte lip creams. They're some of my favourite lip shades to wear and I often find myself reaching for them. They've got a really unique almost mousse-like texture and as a result feel very light on the lips.

They don't feel heavy or tight like a lot of other matte liquid lipsticks. This does make them slightly less long lasting but this is something that I'm willing to sacrifice if they're more comfortable to wear. The pigmentation is great but often the formula makes it quite patchy. I find that the opaqueness really varies between shades and it's a bit of a lucky dip as to if they'll be patchy or not. However I really like the colour selection available as they've got a lot of wearable nudes and pinks with more exciting purples, blues and oranges.

ISTANBUL 
This was the first shade that I ever brought. It's quite a light blue-toned pink and looks really pretty as a bright lip that is still fairly wearable and not too bold.

CAIRO
Cairo is a very light nude. I don't really tend to wear this on it's own because I find it a bit too light. I love using it in the centre of my lips to create an ombre lip or mixing it with darker nudes to create a new colour.

MOROCCO
I love wearing this with a really simple eye look and a glowy base. It's a really bright orange toned red that looks amazing with a tan so I find myself reaching for this more in the summer.

LONDON
London is one of my favourite every day colours. Often I find other brown toned nudes too dark and think they wash me out. I reach for this shade a lot because it goes with any makeup look and I don't really have to think about it.

TRANSYLVANIA
Transylvania is the darkest colour in the collection. It's a very vampy reddish purple that looks amazing in the wintertime. This is definitely the patchiest one I own. I find to get an opaque colour with this I have to go over this quite a few times. This can be quite frustrating, as with dark colours like this I want a really opaque dramatic look.

  4. They are very effective and results are noticeable within a very short time. Wrinkles that mostly disturb people are those that are forming around the face and neck.
