Today I’m reviewing a gorgeous burgundy lip color from NYX – Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen.
Price : $6.00 | Available online at cherryculture.com.
What NYX says 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 moisturizing.
My take on the Product
The NYX Soft Matte Lip cream comes in a tube packaging with a regular doe foot applicator. The texture of this product is like a thick cream. It spreads easily on the lips and gives rich color in a single swipe. The colors are saturated with pigment and it easily gives opaque coverage to the lips. The lip cream feels very creamy on application but dries down to a matte finish soon after. Once it has set into a matte finish, the lip color does not budge or fade for hours! So with a darker color like Copenhagen, you needn’t worry about the color bleeding or feathering outside your lip line. These are fantastic in my opinion though can be a little drying over time. But be careful to not slather on too much lip balm under this otherwise the application can get slightly uneven. I remember trying these a couple of years ago and the formula has definitely been improved since then. They feel much more comfortable and less drying on the lips. If you’re looking for a pigmented, matte finish, long stay lip color, do try out the NYX Soft Matte Lip creams! I personally really like these and you’ll soon see reviews of 3 more shades from this range here.
Copenhagen is deep rich burgundy shade that makes a fantastic fall/winter lip. You can wear this with a slick of black liner or a smoldering plum eye or even a beautiful warm gold eye – it pairs beautifully with everything. Recommended!
