Beauty | NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams

If you don't know the hype behind the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, then where on Earth have you been? I'm usually the last person to cotton on to a hype or cult beauty product but look at me here today, confessing my love for these little pots of loveliness! Yay!

After picking up a couple of the NYX Butter Glosses not so long ago and loving them I decided to pop back to my local NYX counter to pick up some more goodies... Come on, it was inevitable wasn't it.
I opted for two of the Soft Matte Lip Creams in the shades Stockholm (left) & Cairo (right), two brown toned nudes which are going to be super easy to wear during the day.
If you're a regular reader of my blog you'll know that I'm on the hunt for the perfect brown toned nude... In fact, I think even when I find it, I'll still be on the hunt for something a little different.

What I adore most about these products is the formula! As soon as applying the product onto my lips, I knew almost instantly that I was going to fall hook, line and sinker in love with these lip creams. There's something so different about the formula of these lip products compared to anything else I've tried, they're just amazing. The Soft Matte Lip Creams are really velvety in texture and do feel quite mattifying on the lips but more so weirdly in a rich, nourishing way.
The small fluffy applicator does the job perfectly, if anything I'd prefer it to be more of a doe foot shape style because I find them to be more precise but beggars can't be choosers can we. That's honestly my only criticism of these products, everything else I absolutely adore. They're a complete winner for me!... The only thing is, is that I need more shades!
The longevity of the Soft Matte Lip Creams is fab, they last around four hours on the lips which is when they would need reapplying. I think though that if you wanted to leave reapplying them for longer you can do, these are the type of products that leave your lips still with a tint of colour so if you haven't quite got the time to reapply that's okay - You can still get away with it!
If that isn't enough adoration for the lip creams, the scents are just to die for! Both Shades smell like fruity desserts. I can't quite put my finger on what dessert exactly, so if you know please write it in the comments below, because it'll do my head in. All you need to know is that they smell frigging beautiful!

I still don't think I've found the perfect brown toned nude yet, but I'm sure having fun searching for it!

Like I said though I'm freaking loving these lip products. My makeup drawer is slowly getting more full with NYX lip products and I bloody love it! Do you own any of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams? What shades do you have? What do I need to be picking up? Also if you have any recommendations for brown toned liquid style lipsticks I'd love to hear.

  1. Oh these are Fab! I have never tried any lip products from NYX and I love the sound of these. Xxx


    1. They're amazing! I've tried theses, the lip butters & the lip suedes. If you were to try anything I'd deffs recommend wither these or the suedes. They're so nourishing and long lasting... Not to mention the longevity of the two are fab! X

  2. Need to get myself some of these, they sound amazing!

    1. Oh do definitely! There's so many shade choices too, I think I'll be going back for more! X

  3. I love the nyx lip creams they are so soft on the lips, I do however feel like they rub off a bit quicker than other lip creams but for the price they are great and super pigmented


    1. Yeah definitely :-) I've been wearing mine over lip liners & find that helps massively. I love these though, I think they're amazing!! X

  4. I haven't tried Cairo but love Stockholm :) The formula of these are amazing. Lovely post xx

    1. I think Stockholm is a fave from everybody :-) Loads of people seem to have it. It's an amazing shade. They both are :-) X
