I used to hear about these lip creams all the time through watching YouTube and always wanted to give them a go. They had great reviews, and of course they are cruelty free… so I thought I would give them a go!
The description on the NYX website is quite accurate:
Now available in twelve more statement-making shades, our velvety smooth Soft Matte Lip Cream delivers a burst of creamy color and sets to a stunning matte finish. Surprisingly durable, lightweight and delightfully creamy, it’s no wonder this sweetly scented formula is a NYX fan favourite. – (NYX Website)
Colours purchased: Prague, Ibiza & Istanbul
- Istanbul: Described on website as ‘clean pink’
- Prague: Described on website as ‘matte merlot’
- Ibiza: Described on website as ‘matte deep rose pink’ – personally I feel like this colour comes of more coral then pink.

Swatches with no lip liner.
Texture: The Matte Lip Creams have a mouse like texture that is light and fluffy. They are a matte texture, v the title state, and are quite comfortable to wear.
Lasting Power: I apply this at 6:30am and it is still on my lips at 2pm. The comfortability of the lip cream wears off as time goes on, but I feel as though that is expected of a matte lip product. Although I say the comfortability wears off, it is definitely very comfortable for the first 4-5 hours of wear.
Pigmentation: SUPER pigmented. I only need one layer of the product in relation to pigmentation purposes. The colours I have tried go on smooth and even.
Scent: It is very sweet, quite enjoyable… I dig it!
I would recommend this product!
