You may have seen in my recent January haul post (if you haven't seen the post but would like to you can find it here) I picked up one of the NYX soft matte lip creams in the shade Antwerp, I have wanted to try one of the soft matte lip creams for a while now and since I was placing a Boots order I thought I'd order one, I love coral lip shades for the spring and summer and thought Antwerp looked like a perfect shade for me.
What NYX Say About The Soft Matte Lip Cream
Neither lipstick nor lip gloss this matte lip cream is a new kind of lip color that goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and unlike some matte lipstick formulas also moisturising.
The packaging of the soft matte lip creams is a plastic tube with a rubberised lid, the colour of the tube indicates to some degree the shade of the product but isn't exact so I would say to check on line for swatches if you're ordering online. The soft matte lip cream has a doe foot applicator that doesn't pick up too much product when applying making it easy to apply without it going everywhere as I have found with some other liquid lipsticks I have tried.
The soft matte lip cream applies well and with ease and feels very moisturising on the lips and not drying at all, I use 2 coats of the lip cream for a nice bold lip, the lip cream dries to a matte finish and lasts for around 4 hours. I agree totally with the things NYX has to say about the lip cream, it isn't a lip stick or a gloss and it does feel lovely and smooth when I apply it and then dries to a matte finish but it doesn't feel drying on my lips.
The shade is a lovely bright coral with pink undertones, I really like it, corals and pinks are my favourite lip shades to wear for spring/summer and this is perfect and I can see me getting a lot of wear out of it, it's the perfect shade for day or night and if you like a bright bold lip, you'll love it too.
I would definitely recommend trying the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, they apply well, feel lovely on the lips, come in a fantastic range of shades and are affordable too, you can find the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams on the Boots website HERE for £5.50 or on the Feel Unique website HERE for £5.50.
