NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream First Impressions and Review

Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog, today’s post is a review about the new NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. I had wandered into my local Ulta one day after work and saw these bad boys, and I decided to pick a few up since I’ve been searching for an affordable liquid lipstick. These are the first kind of liquid lipsticks I’ve ever bought, but I seem to be loving them so far.

Overview

So I really love the texture of these lipsticks. Like the name says, it’s a lip cream that finishes into a stain, which is great for being long lasting and keeping the color payoff. At first application, the lipstick is very creamy and almost moisturizing, and after a few minutes it dries into a matte finish. The only problem referring to the longevity of it for me is because my lips have been pretty chapped, so that can affect how long it lasts on your lips. Also, I’ve noticed the color is somewhat different from what the packaging suggests, but I’ve loved the three colors I picked.

This is probably my least favorite of the three shades I got, it’s a very bright pink color. I definitely didn’t think it would be as pink as it is, but I think it’s going to look really nice in the spring and summer.

Madrid is a gorgeous red with pink undertones,  it is almost a berry-ish color. I really like this for days I want to do a dark shade, but one that isn’t overpoweringly dark. I’m trying to get into red lipstick now that I’m feeling more confident about my teeth and my smile in general, but I think this draws attention to your lips without being crazy drama.

This is, by far, my favorite shade of the moment. This is a gorgeous dark red plum color, and I’m really feeling it with this winter weather. I love how the purple undertones look on my skin tone, especially since my skin is really red and the colder color balances it out. The packaging makes it look a lot darker and purpler than it really is, but this is definitely my go-to at the moment.
