NYX saysNeither 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! 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!

 

Cannes is warm peachy pink that would make a great everyday wear shade for many skin tones.  It pairs really well with brighter eye makeup as well. I love that it doesn’t wash me out but doesn’t draw too much attention either. Recommended!

Rating : 4.25/5

    The shade looks so nice! I had another one which was too light for me. I also found them a bit drying. Good that the texture has improved!

    Lovely shade and the texture looks good too. The eyeshadow and this lippie make a perfect combination. I am a die hard fan of your blog and so dependent on it..haha…. buy almost 90% of my makeup after going through your reviews. You are doing a great job. One thing I wanted to request is that how do cordinate blush shades with lip colours and/or rest of the makeup. Would love some kind of tutorial or info. Thank u so much!

    the shade look lovely on you, but did you pay costums while shopping from cherrycultre plus have you tried the nyx offical website?

      HI Daksha, I've never had to pay customs while shopping cherryculture (for delivery to Japan). I haven't tried shopping from NYX official website yet.

    Beauties, if you are a fan of this range, please try Miss Claire matte lip creme. Perfect dupes at a fraction of the price.
