NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Collection

As I said in my haul a couple of weeks ago, once upon a time I'm sure I owned at least 6 of these but as I searched through my make up collection they were no where to be found. Heartbroken, I ordered some asap.

At £5.50 each these are pretty reasonably priced especially considering how great they are (for the most part). 
Just like with most lines of products there are bound to be hits and misses so if you did by chance buy one that ended up being patchy, I'd suggest giving them another go if you can! 

Potentially my favourite of them all although, there's no doubt I'll be saying that for every one. It's a deep red, cool toned shade and it's beautiful. It takes a couple of layers to be completely opaque and lasts for around 3 hours before it starts fading.

A deep mauve/pink shade. This doesn't apply patchy at all and is pretty much perfect after one coat but applying two will give you a more opaque look. This is a little bit too deep on my skin tone but I love the colour too much to not wear it. It's gorgeous. It lasts for 3/4 hours (ish) on me.

This is for sure one of my favourites and most worn shades. It's a true warm toned, medium pink and is the most perfect Summer shade. Think Mac Mehr (ish). It does apply a little patchy and takes at least 3 coats for a full, intense colour. It lasts for around 3 hours and fades evenly without leaving a stain.

A peachy nude with warm undertones. This is a wonderful throw on, everyday shade. It does apply patchy but actually works well as a light wash of colour. It is buildable, like all of them are, if you do want an opaque finish. It lasts around 3/4 hours.

The most beautiful but unfortunately also the most patchy (sob). It does eventually even out after around 3-4 coats and the colour itself is the most gorgeous deep wine shade with some purple tones. It lasts pretty well at 2/3 hours on me, especially for such a dark shade but it does fade from the centre outwards which is my least favourite. You can reapply without any crumbling but applying a dark liquid lipstick on the go could be a disaster waiting to happen.

If you're not a fan of the uber matte liquid lipsticks these could be your new best friend. The formula is kind of mousse like in texture and they aren't drying in the slightest. Although, if it's longevity you're after then maybe these aren't for you. They do last pretty well in my opinion but they definitely aren't in the same league as the Kylie lipsticks for example. I do really love these, the nude shades in particular, and I'll be adding more to my collection a-snap. 

If you have any recommendations of which ones I should pick up next then please let me know!

Have you tried these? What's your favourite shade?

  2. Fab photos and reviews on each one! I love the soft matte lip creams and definitely need to pick up more. Some of them can be a bit hit and miss, but some of them are great quality for the price x

  4. I've always love Coppenhagen, but until I read this post, I didn't know Madrid will be a shade that I love, too. They're so comfortable, aren't they?
