NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams


(Unfortunately photos in this post were lost due to The Great Deletion of 2014. Some efforts to re-do photos will be made but not all posts will be redone.)

Sometimes I just want a good matte lip ok? And can I please have it without drying my lips to shreds and with long lasting color? Well, NYX has answered my prayers. Hello matte lips!

NYX advertises their lips creams as neither lipstick nor gloss but a highly pigmented, lightweight cream that applies smoothly and sets to a matte finish. It is suppose to be durable and also moisturizing. I have purchased the colors in San Paulo, Tokyo, Istanbul and Addis Ababa.

The lip creams apply with a doe foot applicator and are as creamy as the product advertises. They glide only with a velvet cushiony feel and are really comfortable to wear. I really love these. They dry down to a matte finish and are not drying on my lips. For serious. The color is still strong after drinking a cup of tea throughout the day. Really, this just hits all the points I want in a matte lipstick. Get one! Feel the cushiony softness!!!

This product performs really well and I would recommend this to anyone who loves matte lips but especially for those who find other matte products very drying. I would even suggest the color Istanbul to a matte beginner. It's a nice rose that's not too out there. And even though I shy away from bright bold colors, there's something about Addis Ababa that I find quite wearable for work, but that might be just me...

Do you go for matte lips? What formula is your favorite?

October/November are typically the months for books awards and the latest Man Booker Prize winner has been announced! You too can read Eleanor Catton's 800 pg tome! No really...the Man Booker winners are the only ones I pay attention too usually. Do you follow literary awards?
